Steel: Contemporary steel doors have an inner frame made of wood or steel, are filled with high-density foam insulation, and have a skin made of thick 24-gauge steel. High quality steel doors have a nice vinyl coating that can assist when weather gets rough, or often times a wood veneer that can serve as a nice attraction for your home. Although steel doors aren’t as energy efficient as fiberglass, they can sometimes come with a thermal break that prevents warm and cool temperatures from conducting through the inside of your house.
Fiberglass: Fiberglass doors are a very popular option nowadays due to durability and low maintenance. When fiberglass doors are properly built, fiberglass doors look almost identical to solid wood doors. With polyurethane-foam insulation, fiberglass doors are extremely energy-efficient, and typically have the longest warranties amongst other materials.
Wood: If you’re looking for a classic, beautiful, timeless entry door, wood is most likely going to be your pick. They are aesthetically pleasing and there are wide range of options to choose from as far as types of wood and stains. If you choose a wood entry door and want to reduce swelling and warping, you can even get a wood veneer skin placed over an engineered wood core.
