What Type of Entry Door is Best?What Is the Best Entry Door for Your Home?

When it comes to your home’s curb appeal, there’s one feature that many would agree has the most visual impact after your siding and your roof: your front door. After all, who hasn’t envisioned their dream home with a bright red entry door, or with an elegant woodgrain and sidelights? Since your entry door is so important to the overall appearance of your home, it’s important to find the right style for your tastes, leading many homeowners to wonder what kind of entry door is best for their home.

At See-Thru Windows, Doors & Home Improvements, we understand how important finding a front door that matches your personality is. With that in mind, we’ve outlined some of the most important differences between the two most common entry door materials on the market today:


These days, the most common material used in entry door construction is fiberglass, and it’s easy to see why. Fiberglass front doors are durable, attractive, and energy efficient, making them a smart choice for almost any home.

Homeowners also love how low-maintenance their fiberglass doors are. These doors don’t require extensive maintenance to stay looking pristine, and can be cleaned without harsh chemicals or cleaners. Plus, you won’t have to worry about ever needing to refinish or repaint your fiberglass entry door since its high-performance finish will last for the life of the door.


If you’re looking for an entry door that offers the most security possible, then a steel door is perfect for you. Steel entry doors are one of the most secure options available to homeowners since steel is nearly impervious to direct impacts. What’s more, our steel doors include extra-secure features, like steel deadbolt plates and optional laminated safety glass.

Additionally, our steel doors use 22-gauge steel, which is far thicker than the typical industry standard of 18-gauge steel. That makes them even more secure and resistant to unwanted entry.
