What is the best material for an exterior door?
The three material choices for exterior doors are wood, steel, and fiberglass. Which one is best depends on your specific needs and budget? Generally, wood is best for aesthetics, steel for security, and fiberglass for a maintenance-free option. 1. Steel Inexpensive and energy efficient, steel doors are strong and secure and have the largest selection of traditional and modern door slab options. Steel doors don’t crack or warp like other materials, but they are easy to dent and difficult to repair. 2. Fiberglass Fiberglass doors are maintenance-free and filled with insulation for energy efficiency. They can be designed to mimic the look of wood, and they resist wear and the elements better than both wood and steel. Low-quality doors fiberglass doors can warp over time. 3. Wood Wooden doors are attractive but expensive. They are heavy, secure, and resistant to wear and damage, but wood does need protection from the elements and requires repainting or refinishing.
