Entry Doors: Which One is Right for Your Home?

Entry Doors: Which One is Right for Your Home?

Your front door gives people the first impression of your home. Replacing your entry door gives you a fast and dramatic curb-appeal upgrade in Petoskey 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 buying windows for more light, you have many options.

Of course everyone desires to have a beautiful front door, but the function of your entry door isn’t something you should overlook. Your front door needs to stand up to the weather in Petoskey and be strong enough to keep your home safe. The good news is that you can have the best of both worlds—beauty and function—no matter which door material you go with. Speaking of door materials, let’s review the basics of each choice: 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 painless to maintain and have the ability to hold up for a very long time in the Petoskey climate.

Steel Entry Doors

Steel doors offer you a great opportunity for a number of high-end styles. Not to mention that a lot of the time they can be a very affordable selection.

Fiberglass Entry Doors

Fiberglass entry doors are quickly entering the scene as a logical choice for homeowners. They normally require very little maintenance. They come in a vast number of styles—from smooth for painting to very realistic wood grain.

No matter which style of entry door suits your style and budget, be sure to look for ENERGY STAR® certification when comparing doors.
