Door selections are one of the most important components in a home. They need to be durable against the elements and look good.

When a front door is exposed to the elements, it needs to be durable. Fortunately, exterior doors are made with rot-resistant and sturdy materials that withstand Cayce’s weather and temperature extremes. They are also a great way to improve your home’s security.
Fiberglass entry doors are very durable, resisting scratching and denting and can be refinished for added protection. They also do not warp or rot and are easy to maintain with regular cleaning. In addition, they are energy efficient with a polyurethane core and insulated window trim, which prevents air leakage.
Fiberglass entry doors with glass offer a wide range of design options. Choose from varying amounts of glass to let light in, or create a bolder look with decorative door glass. You can also add sidelight windows to a fiberglass door, which can make your entryway feel bigger and brighter. They are available in round, half or full sizes and hand-beveled for a refined look.
Many entry doors feature a solid deadbolt area that helps prevent unauthorized entry. They can also provide extra protection against the elements. Most manufacturers also offer a variety of security hardware options to suit any style of home.
Forget the plastic-looking imposters of a few decades ago; today’s fiberglass door offers convincingly textured “skins” and energy-saving insulation. They’re durable enough to resist dents, dings, and scratches, and come in a wide array of finishes, molding, sidelights, and hardware.
Whether you choose the sturdy Legacy steel of ProVia or the realistic wood-look of Embarq fiberglass, every model is built to last with unmatched quality assurance and a lifetime limited transferable warranty. Some models are Energy Star certified and come with a polyurethane insulating core, while others have glass with signature ComforTech Warm Edge technology to keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. These doors also offer a variety of design possibilities including circular, full or partial windowed front door options.
The material a door is made out of and the type of insulation it has plays a significant role in its energy efficiency. Fiberglass is a good insulator, as is aluminum. Wood, on the other hand, is a poor insulator. This means it conducts heat and cold more easily. This makes it a less energy-efficient option.
Steel entry doors are known for their high energy efficiency. This is especially true of ProVia Legacy Steel doors with glass, which have ENERGY STAR certification for the glazing they use in them.
The ENERGY STAR label on any door helps you compare its energy performance ratings to other products in your home. You can also learn more about a product’s insulating value by checking its R-factor, which measures how well it keeps in heat. An R-factor of 0.7 is ideal for most climates. If you want to get even more energy efficient, consider adding sidelights. This will boost curb appeal and increase the amount of daylight in your home.
The front door is one of the most important focal points in your home. It can be masterfully designed to fit your house’s structural design and reflect your lifestyle and personality. It is also a key security feature. It has a direct impact on your house’s curb appeal and increases its value. It is important to choose the right door that will meet your requirements and budget.
Iron front doors are popular among homeowners because of their strength and durability. They are fireproof and can’t be easily broken. In fact, thieves avoid homes with these doors. However, the cost of a traditional iron door can be prohibitive.
Steel and fiberglass entry doors are also an excellent option for your home. For example, a ProVia Embarq or Signet custom fiberglass door can be designed with a wood grain texture and several stain or paint colors for added style. These doors are rot-resistant and can withstand the harsh Columbia climate. They also have a polyurethane core for insulation and come with a solid deadbolt area panel to increase your home’s security.
