Bay Area Window Pros Custom Exteriors Compare Wood vs. Fiber Glass vs. Steel Doors

The custom exterior door dealer, Custom Exteriors, highlights the pros and cons of popular door type materials. Should you choose wood, fiberglass or steel?

    SAN FRANCISCO, CA, March 14, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The exterior windows and doors dealer, Custom Exteriors, offers advice on what type of door material you should choose for your home. Though multiple options exist, wood, fiberglass and steel are by far the most popular. Each of these types has its own distinct advantages and disadvantages, but some will work better than others depending on your needs.

What Material Is Right for You?

If you are shopping for a custom exterior door, you should aim to select a material that will be both durable and energy-efficient, yet still aesthetically pleasing. After all, a stunning entryway can add a lot of curb appeal, something every homeowner wants.

A beautiful, custom-designed solid wood door screams elegance, but keep in mind that these doors can easily cost upwards of $5,000 or more depending on the type of wood used and any ornamental designs that may be present. Alas, wood is trumped by both steel and fiberglass in terms of efficiency, which is a feature homeowners living in harsh climates often deem a priority.

Steel is the most durable of three (ideal for those who are more concerned with safety) and it provides considerable insulation.

"Given its low maintenance properties and the fact that it can be made to mimic wood, fiberglass is arguably the best material choice for all doors," says Jack Cooper, Director of Marketing and Business Development for Custom Exteriors. "It offers the best of both worlds and is a highly affordable solution."
