Let’s learn more about fiberglass front doors and why they are a great pick for Arizona homes.
What are Fiberglass Entry Doors?
Fiberglass front doors are made from two large molded sides that are filled with a polyurethane foam core. These materials do not absorb moisture, eliminating the possibility of rotting, warping, peeling and bubbling that can happen with other materials. Fiberglass is so strong and dependable, it has been used in boats, auto body parts, insulation and other objects for many years.
Here are some things to know about fiberglass front doors in Arizona:
- Exceptional durability that prevents warping, shrinking or swelling
- Great energy efficiency that will help keep your home cool
- Mimics the look of real world but without all the same maintenance
- Excellent resistance against moisture, sun, insects and rot
- Low in maintenance – the topcoat protects the doors, but will need to be reapplied
- Numerous colors available, as well as wood grain patterns
Fiberglass is a Great Pick for the Arizona Heat
You might be able to protect yourself from the Arizona heat, but your front door can’t. This is especially true if your entry door faces south where it will receive hours of direct sunlight every day. Some materials hold up better under extensive sun exposure, and fiberglass is one of them.
Wood doors can warp, fade and crack over time, while steel can be hot! Fiberglass, on the other hand, does not hold heat. These doors will stay cool, even when exposed to direct sunlight for hours. This also works to keep cold air inside your home and hot air outside your home.
