The most common materials used for front doors are:

  • Steel.
  • Wood.
  • Fiberglass.

Each of them has its own distinctive features and specific characteristics.


Associated with reliability, strength, and safety, the steel front door occupies a leading position in popularity in today’s market. Their advantages are:

  • Long-term operation.
  • Excellent protective properties.
  • Good resistance to fire and moisture;
  • No deformations under the influences of external factors.

Solid steel sheets are the ideal material for the front door. Two and three-sheet doors are good protection for almost any home or apartment. However, they are more expensive than models with one-sheet construction without welds, as they add brittleness and fragility to the structure. The welded surface is easy to damage by mechanical effect, and it can disperse in the place of welding.

One of the disadvantages of steel front doors is not the very aesthetic appearance of the surface. Steel doors also have low sound and heat insulation. However, a manufacturer considers these features and develops additional technical solutions. Quality construction has a layer of soundproof materials to neutralize these shortcomings.


Front doors made of wood are also popular among buyers. In connection with its naturalness, such products have a higher price than metal products. Among the advantages of wood for entrance doors, experts appreciate:

  • Naturalness & environment safely.
  • Good thermal insulation
  • Excellent soundproof

A door made of quality wood will serve you more than a dozen years. Select doors made from well-dried materials. Otherwise, poorly dried products can dry up and lose shape. First-rate soundproofing properties are also the undoubted advantages of wood doors. Natural thermal insulation is also achieved due to the properties of the wood itself.

The drawback of the wood as the materials for front doors is water-permeable structure. Such models can swell in conditions of high humidity. Doors made of wood tend to be affected by mold or fungi and have weak resistance to fire. However, manufacturers treat wood with special substances to make it resistant to various external factors. This helps to create a better product to extend its service life.


Fiberglass for entry doors is another great material as its best materials as it combines durability, safety, and functionality. Visually they are similar to ordinary wooden models but more durable. Fiberglass is not subjecting to rotting as the metal. The advantages are:

  • Resistance to rot and rust
  • Absence of deformation.
  • Energy-Efficiency.

Doors made of do not crumble or deform, therefore it is the best materials for exterior doors installed in a wet climate or cold regions. The presence of dense foam materials in the structure provides a high degree of thermal insulation. Its strength is comparable with steel, but simultaneously this front door material is not afraid of corrosion or rotting. Such models require little maintenance: clean them regularly with a damp cloth. One of the disadvantages is a rather high price. The dents on the surface are barely visible, but the leaf can crack from strong mechanical influences.
