They Give the Effect of Real Wood Doors

The biggest advantage of fiberglass front doors is they offer the beautiful look of real wood without the disadvantages. They are less expensive than real wood and come in a variety of design options to be made exactly like a wood door.

Choose From a Variety of Finishes

Fiberglass front doors come in a large variety of finishes, styles and colors to best suit your home’s style. They’re made of composite materials that create a grainy finish to resemble the look of real wood.

But if that doesn’t interest you, no worries! They also come in smooth finishes that you can stain or paint to any color of your choice to match your home’s design.

Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Because fiberglass mimics the look of real wood, it attracts many homeowners. Additionally, there are options to add decorative glass to your fiberglass door that will make a statement.

Creating an entrance with fiberglass will give that “wow factor” and stand out amongst the rest of the homes in your neighborhood. We guarantee you will be receiving compliments left and right!

If you are looking to possibly sell your home in the future, it pays to upgrade your entry door as you can expect 81-88% return on investment and and increase your home’s value by an estimated $16,000.

Fiberglass Requires Low Maintenance

Fiberglass entry doors offer the lowest maintenance out of any other type of entry door material. These doors are coated with a restorative top coat that will prevent your door from any fading, denting or scratching.

You also don’t have to worry about the extreme temperatures in Chicago ruining your door. Because fiberglass doesn’t expand or contract like steel or wood, the temperature won’t degrade the finish.

All you need to do to keep your door looking brand new is to do regular cleaning with a damp cloth. That’s it!

They Have Increased Durability

Unlike wood, fiberglass will never shrink, twist, warp or split. If you live in a very warm or cold climate, choose fiberglass front doors as they hold up the best out of any other door option.

They are super durable as they are made from the same family of fiberglass reinforced polymers used to create airplanes, surfboards and Corvettes. Pretty cool, right? We guarantee that you will not be disappointed if you choose fiberglass front doors!

They Will Provide Long Term Performance

Due to the high endurance that fiberglass provides, they are guaranteed to have an extremely long lasting lifespan.

But know that the quality of fiberglass you choose is key. The higher quality of fiberglass you purchase, the longer it will last and vice versa. If you want your entry door to last a lifetime, spend a little more on higher quality fiberglass to assure long term performance.

If you are looking to invest in something that you can rely on, choose fiberglass as it will hold up in any climate while giving your home beautiful curb appeal.

They Offer Superior Security for Your Home

An entry door does much more than beautify your home, you want to be sure that it will protect you. As it is the primary entryway to your home, you want a door that provides the design and style you like while keeping your home secure and family safe.

Fiberglass entry doors are among the best option for security. Quality fiberglass combines the beauty and rich look of wood and the strength of steel without the limitations. Also, the frames built around the door have twice the screw-holding power of wood.

If your main concern is security, choose a fiberglass front door. You will love the look of it while always keeping your home secure.
