The Best Entry Door For Winter Weather

Posted on January 18, 2021

No one wants a fairweather entry door. As winter approaches, a weak entry door could swell, peel, or crack in the midst of frigid cold, storm impact, and winds. Fortunately, there are entry doors out there that can hold up to the winter weather. At Mainstream Home Improvements, we believe fiberglass entry doors are the best doors for winter, which is why we offer fiberglass entry doors from Therma-Tru all year long. Here are a few things that make these doors stand out in the winter:

Strength & Security

Fiberglass is one of the strongest entry door materials available. It has impact resistance comparable to steel. This is helpful not just to stand up to wind and debris impact during winter storms, but it can also help to keep pests and even intruders out of your home. A fiberglass door is a difficult one to break through or kick in, so you’ll be able to rest comfortably, knowing that you are safe and secure in your home.

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is a big factor in the winter. The goal is to keep heat from escaping your home and cold outside air from leaking in. When your door is less than energy efficient, your home won’t be comfortable and you’ll probably have to pay through the nose on your heating bill as your furnace works harder to heat your home. Fiberglass doors are thick and durable, which makes them incredibly energy efficient. You can say goodbye to drafts in the entryway with a fiberglass door.

The Look Of Real Wood

Wood entry doors can be high maintenance and aren’t always the best choice for winter, as they can easily swell or warp. However, there’s no denying there’s a natural, classic beauty to wood entry doors. Fortunately, Therma-Tru fiberglass doors can give you the real look and feel of wood with the strength of fiberglass. They use AccuGrain™ technology to take on the appearance and even the texture of woodgrain within the fiberglass material, sometimes even fooling the homeowner themselves.

Fiberglass entry doors are a strong, energy efficient option that is perfect for winter, but the beautiful durability can be enjoyed all year long. Interested in having one installed yourself? Contact Mainstream Home Improvement today for more information or to get started with a free estimate.
