Entry Doors: Which One is Right for Your Home?

Entry Doors: Which One is Right for Your Home?

Your front door offers people the first impression of your home. Swapping out your entry door gives you a fast and dramatic curb-appeal upgrade in Long Island 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 correctly or you’re interested in upgrading materials or getting windows for more light, you have many choices.

Of course everyone has the desire for a beautiful front door, but the function of your entry door isn’t something you should overlook. Your front door should be able to stand up to the weather in Long Island and be sturdy enough to keep your home protected. 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 talk about the basics of each type: wood, steel and fiberglass.

Wood Entry Doors

Wood doors are a stunning classic. No matter what your style is, there’s a wood door for you. They can be simple to maintain and have the ability to hold up for a very long time in the Long Island climate.

Steel Entry Doors

Steel doors provide an excellent option for a host of high-end styles. Not to mention that a lot of the time they can be a very affordable choice.

Fiberglass Entry Doors

Fiberglass entry doors are quickly entering the scene as a go-to choice for homeowners. They normally 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.
