Entry Doors: Which One is Right for Your Home?

Entry Doors: Which One is Right for Your Home?

Your front door gives people the first impression of your home. Changing out your entry door gives you a quick and dramatic curb-appeal upgrade in Syracuse and can make a huge difference when it comes to the style of your home. Whether you need a replacement door because yours isn’t functioning appropriately or you’re interested in upgrading materials or getting windows for more light, you have many possibilities.

Of course everyone has the desire for a beautiful front door, but the function of your entry door isn’t something you should forget. Your front door needs to stand up to the weather in Syracuse and be strong enough to keep your home safe. The good news is that you have the ability to have the best of both worlds—beauty and function—no matter which door material you pick. Speaking of door materials, let’s go over the basics of each type: wood, steel and fiberglass.

Wood Entry Doors

Wood doors are a beautiful classic. No matter what your style is, there’s a wood door for your project. They can be painless to maintain and have the ability to last for a very long time in the Syracuse environment.

Steel Entry Doors

Steel doors provide a great opportunity for a variety of high-end styles. Not to mention that a lot of the time they can be a very affordable selection.

Fiberglass Entry Doors

Fiberglass entry doors are quickly becoming a go-to choice for homeowners. They usually require very little maintenance. They come in a great number of styles—from smooth for painting to very realistic wood grain.

No matter which style of entry door suits your style and budget, make sure to look for ENERGY STAR® certification when comparing doors.
