Waterloo Repairs Front Doors
There is a large variety of options to choose from in front doors, both in style (panelled, double, arched) and construction (wood, fibreglass, metal). Selecting an entryway can be completely overwhelming, but fortunately there are some practical matters to help guide the decision-making process.
Your front door should fit in architecturally with the rest of your home. There is something out there for everyone, so feel free to express yourself.
A standard single door is generally 32″-36″ wide. An entryway may encompass more than just the actual door, but remember that ornamental elements (sidelines or a glazed transom) require proper framing for support.
Most modern doors are made of wood, fibreglass, or steel.
Wood: Nothing beats the natural beauty of wood. Because wood is sensitive to moisture and sun, its condition should be examined at least once per year. Modern wood doors are generally a sandwich of veneers over a wood or steel core (to lower cost and minimize warping).
Fibreglass: Fibreglass composite doors are both affordable and durable. They can go years without needing touch-ups, so they are particularly well-suited for harsh climates. Generally, fibreglass doors they have a foam core—an excellent insulator.
Steel: Steel is strong and won’t crack or warp, but it can dent. Minor damage can be fixed with auto-body repair kits, but big dents may require replacement. Depending on the core, a steel door can have great energy efficiency. But steel does conduct temperature, so its performance won’t be optimal in extreme climates. Steel is one of the least expensive options, but there is a trade-off in shorter lifespan.
Like most investments in your home, when you purchase a front door, there’s an up-front cost and the long-term cost. Make sure you are well aware of the energy efficiency, maintenance requirements, and life expectancy of the door you are selecting. All those things impact the long-term cost of maintaining your entryway.
