What Is Better—Wood or Fiberglass Doors?
If you’re searching for new doors for your home, you may be oscillating between wood and fiberglass, wondering which one is better. While both of these doors are among the finest you can buy for your home, there are certain advantages and disadvantages you may want to be familiar with before making a decision.
For many homeowners, the decision to invest in wood doors ultimately comes down to appearance. Typically available in wood species, such as oak, mahogany, maple, teak, fir, and pine, these doors provide a singularly warm, sophisticated, and inviting look that many other types of doors simply don’t provide. However, their beauty comes at a slight cost. Because wood is susceptible to damage from moisture infiltration, insects, and other pests, more maintenance is required to prevent these doors from scratching, peeling, bubbling, warping, or rotting over time.
Fiberglass doors are made of composite materials clad in a fiberglass panel that resembles beautiful wood grain. While they mimic the appearance of wood, they require none of the maintenance, as they remain resistant to rotting, rusting, warping, and deteriorating over time. Fiberglass doors also offer excellent thermal performance and can help reduce your monthly heating and cooling costs.
