Feather River Door's Fiberglass Entry Doors

Image
In the realm of construction materials, fiberglass has long been known for providing excellent insulation. It has become a popular material for doors since it can endure severe weather elements, climate change and continual use. It does not rot, crack, dent or rust. This is important when it comes to exterior doors which can be subjected to elements such as rain, wind and heat.

Compared to wood and steel, fiberglass requires the least maintenance. Fiberglass is energy efficient and provides three to five times more insulation than other materials such as wood. It is amazing how real and authentic the wood grains are on Feather River Door's exterior doors. Wood grain is unique and textured to emulate not only the look of real wood, but the feel of it as well.

Feather River Door's entry system makes for a great choice if you're looking for an energy efficient and beautiful looking door for your home.

Interior Doors for Maximum Impact

Image
Interior doors make a huge impact when changing the look of your home. Interior doors increase the visual appeal of a home as well as decreasing sound transmission and offering solid performance. Consider the following when choosing an interior door:
1. Pre-hung door unit or a regular door (slab). If you are going to re-use the frame of the door, you can get away with getting a replacement slab only. To replace the door and frame, pre-hung doors are easier to use.
2. Rough Opening. A door should measure 1/8" smaller (in width & height) than the rough opening the door will go into. 3. Consider your swing. Choose your swing so that the door rests in the most convenient spot when completely open.
4. Choose the Design. Now, this is the fun part. Usually, bedroom doors are smooth or paneled doors. You can really personalize your room with privacy and decorative glasses that can work well with bedroom doors as well.
5. Select the Finish.
Wood doors can be stained or painted. Feather Ri…
