Wood, Steel, or Fiberglass Doors? Weighing the Pros and Cons

Wood Door

Choosing doors is an important process that you should carefully consider. After all, the material of the door should be durable, functional, safe and aesthetically pleasing to boot. There tend to be three choices of materials to choose from, all of which have their pros and cons: Wood, Steel and Fiberglass.

  • Wood – Wood doors are a popular choice due to their visual appeal. They provide a warm and welcoming touch to the home and also have a high end look. Scratches are also easily repaired. However, they can be expensive, and they absorb moisture, which can lead to peeling, bubbling, warping and more. Additionally, they are not very energy efficient.
  • Steel – Steel doors are incredibly durable, durable and energy efficient. Not to mention one of the most secure choices. They are, however, easily dented, have issues with paint chipping and conduct both hot and cold temperatures.
  • Fiberglass – Fiberglass has many of the pros of steel and wood without any of the cons. They can look beautiful, require low maintenance and are durable. Not to mention they are energy efficient and secure.
