Entry Doors: Which One is Right for Your Home?

Entry Doors: Which One is Right for Your Home?

Your front door offers people the first impression of your home. Changing out your entry door gives you a quick and dramatic curb-appeal upgrade in Binghamton and can make a huge difference when it comes to the style of your home. Whether you need a replacement door because yours isn’t functioning properly or you’re interested in upgrading materials or buying windows for more light, you have many choices.

Of course everyone wants a beautiful front door, but the function of your entry door isn’t something you should overlook. Your front door needs to hold up to the weather in Binghamton and be tough enough to keep your home secure. The good news is that you have the ability to have the best of both worlds—beauty and function—no matter which door material you go with. Speaking of door materials, let’s go over the basics of each choice: wood, steel and fiberglass.

Wood Entry Doors

Wood doors are a beautiful classic. No matter what your style is, there’s a wood door for you. They can be easy to maintain and have the ability to hold up for a very long time in the Binghamton climate.

Steel Entry Doors

Steel doors give you a good option for a number of high-end styles. Not to mention that a lot of the time they can be a very affordable option.

Fiberglass Entry Doors

Fiberglass entry doors are quickly becoming a logical choice for homeowners. They normally require very little maintenance. They come in a range number of styles—from smooth for painting to very realistic wood grain.

No matter which type of entry door suits your style and budget, make sure to look for ENERGY STAR® certification when comparing doors.
