Types of Front Doors

Three popular types of front doors include:


Steel is the classic building material and is commonly used for front doors. Sturdy, strong, and reliable, steel doors can be found on many homes—and also complement many styles.


Wood front doors are elegant and timeless. They offer the utmost in natural beauty and are unparalleled in that regard. For all their aesthetic appeal, however, wood doors do require more maintenance than other types of doors.


More of a newcomer to the market, fiberglass has quickly gained popularity. Fiberglass doors are beautiful, low-maintenance and energy-efficient.
