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 swift and dramatic curb-appeal upgrade in Bloomington 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 properly or you’re interested in upgrading materials or buying windows for more light, you have quite a few options.

Of course everyone wants a beautiful front door, but the function of your entry door isn’t something you should look over. Your front door should be able to withstand the weather in Bloomington and be sturdy enough to keep your home safe. 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 choose. Speaking of door materials, let’s review the basics of each type: wood, steel and fiberglass.

Wood Entry Doors

Wood doors are a go-to classic. No matter what your style is, there’s a wood door for your project. They can be easy to maintain and have the ability to last for a very long time in the Bloomington weather.

Steel Entry Doors

Steel doors give you an excellent opportunity for a number of high-end styles. Not to mention that more often than not, they can be a very affordable selection.

Fiberglass Entry Doors

Fiberglass entry doors are quickly rising as a new choice for homeowners. They usually require very little maintenance. They come in a vast number of styles—from smooth for painting to very realistic wood grain.

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