When deciding on a new front entry door, consider the type of material it's made from. The most common materials are steel and fiberglass. These materials are both affordable and durable, and often come with a warranty. Metal and steel are the most expensive options. A fiberglass-composite door is the most inexpensive and durable, and tends to have a longer warranty. These materials also usually come with pre-drilled holes for hinges.
Wooden front entry doors can be warm and inviting and are a popular choice. The variety of wood species is great for customization. They are also available in many colors and styles. Solid wood doors tend to warp, so it's important to choose a material that will minimize this problem. However, some modern wood doors have an engineered wood core underneath the veneer skins to virtually eliminate warping. Of course, because wood is natural, it will need regular maintenance.
