A Comparison of Fiberglass and Steel Entry Doors

Most people do not pay that much attention to their door until they see some visible damage that may compromise their home’s aesthetic. When the time comes to replace their entry doors, however, they find it hard to weigh the pros and cons of different door materials.


In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee, a double hung window contractor in the area,  shares the key features of the two most popular door materials. 

Fiberglass Doors

For single-home residences, fiberglass entry doors may be the best option. With their striking look, which can mimic the defined grain of authentic wood doors, this type of door can help boost curb appeal, without compromising the traditional design. 

Apart from its beauty, fiberglass doors are also known for their durability. These doors do not shrink, warp, or split. They are also ideal for homes located in areas with harsh or humid climates. 

ProVia® fiberglass doors, on the other hand, come with a lifetime limited warranty, which guarantees long-lasting performance. To learn more about these doors and other replacement windows, get in touch with your local contractor. 

Steel Entry Doors

Although steel entry doors are often used in commercial properties due to their strength, they are also starting to make their way into the residential arena. Apart from their durability, this type of door is considered low-maintenance, when properly primed and maintained. Steel doors are also the perfect choice for homeowners whose primary concern is safety and security. Fortunately, ProVia Legacy Steel entry doors are custom-built to owner specifications.
