3The entry door, or entrance to your home, can either be fiberglass or wood. Both options provide benefits that you should take into consideration when making your selection.


In the past, wood entry doors were susceptible to warping when exposed to extremes in the weather. The door, which would be perfectly aligned in the summer, would suddenly become hard to open or close when the weather turned cold. Once the homeowner adjusted the door, summer weather would return, and the humidity would cause the door to stick and need readjustment.


Many homeowners choose a steel or fiberglass entry door for the lack of maintenance requirements, as well as the strength that they offer. With new technology, steel and fiberglass doors can come in a wood grain finish and even have the actual look of wood, such as oak or cherry, versus paint.
