FIBERGLASS VS. STEEL—WHICH IS BEST FOR MY TORONTO HOME?

September 25, 2017 0

Your entrance is the heart of the exterior of your home, no doubt. Subsequently, the entry door is the focal point for onlookers, guests, and neighbors. In fact, everyone looks to the entrance for the entry door upon arrival/approach to your home because it is the passageway from the outside world into safety, comfortable air, and familiarity.

Though, entry doors serve many purposes—they aren’t just your home’s focal point. Refuge, beauty, and acting as a guard against the elements are only a few of its jobs. Your Toronto, ON entry door also:

  • Functions as the first-line safety defense against unwanted guests, break-ins/thieves, and intruders.
  • Supplements the aesthetic appeal of your home based on its look and quality.
  • Supports the overall style/look of the home (cottage, modern, antique, etc.).
  • Enhances the look of your home’s windows and doors
  • Raises the value of your home (especially in the case of unique customizations, added security, etc.).

Here in Toronto, ON, there is a growing interest and popularity in steel and fiberglass doors—and our team at Brock Doors & Windows wants to help you sift through their difference to decide which is best for your home!

Fiberglass is an especially great option for those who prefer a wood look (but would rather do without the additional maintenance). It is modern and efficient and you have your choice between a smooth and wood-grain finish (depending on your preference). More often than not, the stained, wood-grain finish is mistaken for a real wood door!

Some key benefits of choosing a fiberglass entry door through Brock, are:

  • No chance of rot, rust, or decay (as it’s made of a glass and plastic fibers embedded in a resin “matrix”).
  • Resistant to extreme heat and weather changes.
  • Easy maintenance.
  • Available in countless styles and glass options.
  • Works well for homes ranging across a large spectrum: traditional/old fashioned to cutting-edge/modern.
