Types of Entry Doors

Entry doors come in various materials, each with its unique features and benefits. The most common types of entry doors include wood, fiberglass, steel, and aluminum. Wood doors offer visual appeal and energy efficiency but require maintenance to keep them in good condition. On the other hand, fiberglass entry doors resist rot and weathering and offer better insulation. Steel doors provide excellent security and durability, making them ideal for high-traffic areas. Aluminum doors are lightweight, making them suitable for large openings, and are available in various finishes and colors.

Checking Entry Door Quality

To check an entry door’s quality, examine the material, hardware, and weather-stripping. A high-quality entry door should be made of thick, durable material;it should have a sturdy lockset; and tight, well-sealed weather-stripping – which ensures energy efficiency and prevents drafts. You can also look for the door’s certification, such as ENERGY STAR, which guarantees the door’s energy efficiency.

Strongest Entry Doors for Hurricane-Prone Areas

If you live in an area prone to hurricanes, it’s crucial to invest in an impact-resistant entry door. The strongest entry doors are made of steel or fiberglass and have impact-resistant glass. These doors undergo rigorous testing to ensure they can withstand hurricane-force winds, flying debris, and other extreme weather conditions. Additionally, you can opt for impact-resistant film, which increases your existing door’s strength and shatter resistance.

Impact-Glass Glazed Entry Doors

An entry door with impact-glass glazing is an excellent option for those who desire a well-lit and visually appealing entrance. Impact-glass glazed entry doors have laminated glass that consists of two pieces of glass with a thermoplastic, polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer. This interlayer holds the glass in place, making it shatter-resistant even when broken. Impact-glass glazed entry doors are as strong as entry doors with no glass and offer excellent insulation, and noise reduction.

Needed four sliding doors replaced for our home. Shopped around and found that WRG offered many options within our price range. They were informative and professional. Doors arrived earlier than expected and staff kept us informed during the process. Kenan was great and I highly recommend shopping here if you need windows or doors.

If you want a quality product and quality workmanship, this is the place to go for window and door replacements. We replaced 5 sections of sliding patio doors with three doors in each section for our lenai. Fred was extremely knowledgeable and did not mislead us in quoting the job. He went out of his way to be sure permits were properly submitted with necessary engineering data and was certain they were issued in a timely manner. Ahren and his crew were extremely meticulous and neat in their work. They cleaned up daily and were polite and courteous. They took the time to explain every move for removal of the old doors and the installation, being certain we knew what was going on and how they were progressing. Needless to say we are extremely pleased with the doors, their function and appearance and the team's workmanship. I would not hesitate to recommend the Window Replacement Group. There should be more companies who do business in this manner.
