A front door says a lot about the person who lives there. It’s the first impression the outside world gets, and it should reflect your personality and style. When it comes to curb appeal, your choice of door can make a dramatic statement. If your current door is tired and dated, then it’s time to invest in a new one. But where to begin?
First, consider the type of door you want. The most common door materials are fiberglass, steel and wood. You’ll want to make sure it complements the style of your home, while also providing excellent security to make your family feel safe. For example, both steel and fiberglass options have a reinforced strike plate to prevent intruders from kicking down the door.
In addition to being secure, another benefit to steel doors includes the ability to paint them. This is a great way to give your entryway a fresh makeover. It’s also an affordable option that requires little maintenance.
Fiberglass doors come in a variety of styles, including wood grain or smooth surface. It can be stained or painted to match your home’s exterior. Because it’s weather resistant and tough, it’s a great choice for high traffic entrances. Fiberglass is also virtually maintenance free, resistant to buckling and denting.
Wood doors are ideal for traditional homes, with the ability to craft door panels and molding into the wood. Mahogany is one of the best woods used for doors, making it incredibly durable, but also a more expensive option. They are a popular choice and easy to personalize with decorative glass accents, transoms, or side lights.
