The Benefits of Wood, Steel, and Fiberglass Entry Doors

A front door replacement can improve your home’s value, transform your home’s appearance, and enhance your home’s energy efficiency. Handyman Connection of Eden Prairie recommends studying the unique features of wood, steel, and fiberglass entry doors to find the best door for your needs. Here are the benefits of each material:

Wooden doors have a premium appearance and feel wonderful to open and close thanks to their substantial weight. We recommend this option for homeowners who want a handcrafted and stunning door to welcome their visitors. Wood doors require maintenance to stay beautiful throughout the years. You need to repaint or refinish your wood entry door every year or two if you want to prevent warping or splitting.


Steel entry doors are an affordable and effective option if you want excellent security. Steel doors are the best barrier against intruders and can stand up to any kind of weather. High-quality steel doors are also exceptionally long lasting and durable. They come in a wide range of colors and designs; some of them can even mimic the look of wood. However, keep in mind that steel doors can dent under heavy use. We recommend keeping in touch with a door professional for prompt repairs.


Fiberglass offers you the unique appearance of wood without its maintenance requirements. It doesn’t contract or expand appreciably as the weather and temperature change. Fiberglass doors can go for years without needing a stain or paint touch-up, and they can last for decades. They also have foam cores that provide excellent insulation and energy efficiency. As a bonus, they come in an immense variety of styles and colors.
