All About Home Front Doors for Sale

When it comes to home front doors for sale, you have a dizzying array of options. From materials to front door hardware to finishes, it's easy to get overwhelmed. When you begin your search for your new home front door, it's simplest to start by deciding what material you'd like. The basic categories of front door materials are:

  • Wood
  • Metal
  • Fiberglass

Once you choose your material, you can narrow your choices down even further by considering the finishes you want. But how do you make that first choice, deciding what material to pick?

You may not need to decide, because you already have a choice in mind. However, if you're still on the fence, a good first step is considering how much maintenance you are willing and able to do. Once you've figured that out, you can match it with a material.

Weather or Not

Before you can decide how much maintenance you're willing to do, you should think about the climate in which you live. Your home front door is, after all, constantly exposed to the elements, so if those elements are particularly harsh, it might have an effect on your door. For example, do you live in an area that gets a lot of rain or snow?

Both can have negative effects on your front door, depending on what material you choose. If you live in a climate that's just the opposite—somewhere where it's always sunny and hot—then that can still affect your door. Sun can fade finishes and excess moisture can cause doors to rot or warp. You should choose the best door material for your climate, unless you're willing to make repairs and/or replace the door if it becomes non-functional.

Secure the Premises

Another consideration you might have when choosing a new home front door for sale is home security. We might all have different ideas about what design elements look good or how we want to landscape our yards, but we can all agree that feeling safe in our homes is a priority. When it comes to how security can affect your door choices, the truth is that all door materials are relatively safe, but some are safer than others.

It all depends on your community and your comfort level. So, for example, if you live in an area with a higher crime rate, you might feel more comfortable behind a metal or fiberglass door. That doesn't mean that wood isn't safe, just that some homeowners might find it not as secure as the other options.

Finishing the Job

Another way to choose your home front door is by deciding what kind of finish you want. All doors can be painted or finished, but if you want a wood look, for instance, your options are more limited than if you just want a certain color. Fiberglass doors can be finished to look like wood and some even fool experts.

However, it’s difficult to make a metal front door look like an authentic wood door. Most people who choose metal doors, however, are picking them for security or for the metal door look, so it ends up largely being inconsequential. Overall, you should base your finish on your taste, as you’re the one who will be living with your choice.
