The entry door is the beginning of the journey through your home. It’s the first thing people notice, and it’s the last thing they’ll see when they leave. The change in curb appeal is remarkable for a replacement front door. The typical door blends into a home and doesn’t really get noticed as an accent to the home. A decorative door can take a relatively boring home and transform it into a thing of beauty. Take a look at a few of these before and after pictures to see for yourself!
You really have two choices when it comes to entry doors; wood and fiberglass. Wood doors are unmistakably beautiful. Each and every wood door is unique and has its own character and style. Contrary to popular belief, not all wood is going to soak up water and rot. There are wood species that will last for hundreds of years and stand up to just about anything. On the other hand, cheap wood doors, made of porous materials and not properly treated and maintained will rot very quickly.
Fiberglass entry doors are an inexpensive alternative to wood. They tend to be about 1/3 to 1/2 the price of a similar wood door. Fiberglass doors have come a long way with realistic wood grain texture and stain options to look very similar to real wood.
