Strong Warranty: Unlike wood doors, most fiberglass doors come with a warranty. This warranty is usually for a lifetime, and covers the owner against factory defects. It does not, however, provide any guarantees against damage caused by the owner. Nothing like wood doors, fiberglass won't dent, crack, split or splinter. Unlike steel doors, fiberglass won't dent, rust or warp, either. Fiberglass also resists shrinking and swelling with temperature changes, allowing the finish to last three times longer than on a wood door. The solid polyurethane foam core offers five times greater insulation value than wood doors.
They also work to keep out the cold and keep in the heat. And by keeping the warmth in your home, they help lower heating costs. In fact a composite door can retain up to six times as much heat as a wood door does. Meanwhile in summer they keep in the cool and keep out the warmth.
Moreover, some people tend to choose steel entry doors or metal entry doors because they are under the impression that these provide a higher level of protection against burglaries. This is a myth that has been busted. A burglar will never break down the door in the middle of the night. There are ways to break into a home, but this is definitely not one of them. So if your door is metal or wood this makes no difference for a burglar, but it makes a great difference for the aspect of your home. When you go shopping for doors, make sure that the door collection you choose from puts quality and design first. And what could be better than perfectly designed wooden residential entry doors?
Energy Efficiency: Saving on energy costs is another advantage to installing fiberglass doors. A fiberglass door is filled with polyurethane foam, which offers five times more energy efficiency than wooden doors can provide. The framed glass entrance doors have either a double, or triple pane, to help cut on cooling and heating costs.
Versatility: Fiberglass doors are very versatile. They can be either factory-finished or factory-primed. Doors that are factory-finished may be stained to match the wood products around, or in, your house. Factory-primed doors are ready to be painted with an exterior grade oil-based paint. Due to the fact that fiberglass doors don't swell or shrink during changing weather conditions, the finish lasts up to three times longer than it does when applied to wood doors.
