If you're considering between steel, wood or fiberglass front door for your home, but aren't sure which material to choose, here is an independent consumer report that you will find helpful. The benefits of fiberglass is clear.

Consider fiberglass first: Steel doors account for about half the market, competing with fiberglass and wood. Considering price, wear and tear, and maintenance, fiberglass makes a very practical choice for most people. As a class, fiberglass doors edge out steel doors for wear and tear... Wood doors generally didn't do quite as well as fiberglass or steel at keeping out heavy rain.

... We found that steel doors show the effects of wear and tear more than wood or fiberglass do. That's important to keep in mind if you're ready to replace the front door to enhance your home's curb appeal.
