If you’re on the market for a new or replacement door for your home – look no further! Whether you’re looking for something durable, aesthetically pleasing, or both, going with fibreglass guarantees you practicality and beauty all in one. Our experts have outlined the top 6 reasons why fiberglass doors are the best investment for your home:
Fiberglass Doors are reliable and durable
Fiberglass doors have been used by building contractors since the 1990's. They've become more increasingly popular among homeowners over the last twenty years. They are a much more practical choice than their wooden counterpart as they are not susceptible to water damage, rotting, or cracking. Fiberglass is comparable to steel in terms of strength and durability. So if you are an extensive traveler you can have some peace of mind about your home’s security knowing that a fiberglass door is sturdy and resistant to physical force. Plus, they are better at resisting extreme climates than wood and steel – a must for our harsh Canadian winters!
They are aesthetically pleasing
Many people are under the misconception that fiberglass doors cannot possibly look as beautiful or luxurious as wooden ones. Technology has advanced over the years & fiberglass can now adapt & imitate other materials. In fact, your door can be stained or coated to look just like wood – you won’t be able to tell the difference!
Affordable and long lasting
Although the upfront cost of a fiberglass door is more expensive than steel, they are a much more worthwhile investment. These doors last longer and are more resistant to harsh weather conditions. In comparison to wooden doors, fiberglass are more affordable and durable. So it ends up being more cost-effective in the long run.
Fiberglass Doors are low-maintenance
Fiberglass doors generally require very little maintenance; scuffs or marks can be removed by simply wiping the door’s surface with soap and water. Unlike wooden doors which are difficult to redecorate, a fiberglass door can be refinished or repainted relatively easily. Steel is susceptible to rusting and chipping in extreme heat or cold, whereas fiberglass does not. This minimizes the need for constant upkeep and repair.
They are highly customizable
Fiberglass doors are extremely versatile; they can be made in a number of different colours and designs to suit your personal tastes. You can choose from a variety of traditional, contemporary, and Victorian styles. There are wood finishes and paint finishes to pick from along with options to add windows, panels, columns, and other designs or detailing.
