Entry Doors: Which One is Right for Your Home?

Your front door provides people the first impression of your home. Replacing your entry door gives you a quick and dramatic curb-appeal upgrade in Ketchum and can make a big difference when it comes to the style of your home. Whether you need a replacement door because yours isn’t operating properly or you’re interested in upgrading materials or adding windows for more light, you have a lot of possibilities.

Of course everyone wants a beautiful front door, but the function of your entry door isn’t something you should forget. Your front door should be able to stand up to the weather in Ketchum and be sturdy enough to keep your home secure. The good news is that you can have the best of both worlds—beauty and function—no matter which door material you go with. Speaking of door materials, let’s review the basics of each kind: 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 your project. They can be painless to maintain and have the ability to hold up for a very long time in the Ketchum environment.

Steel Entry Doors

Steel doors provide a good opportunity for a host of high-end styles. Not to mention that more often than not, they can be a very affordable selection.

Fiberglass Entry Doors

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