Fiberglass doors are quickly becoming the doors of choice for many homeowners and designers. Nothing can match the look and feel of a real wood door, but the cost and maintenance of wood is making fiberglass a better solution for some.
Fiberglass doors come in two basic formats: smooth or woodgrained. Unlike their steel predecessors, fiberglass doors have very realistic details. The panels are often made from molds of actual wood doors. The smooth door is intended to be painted, either by the factory or by the end user. The woodgrain doors are meant to be stained, but look great painted too. Fiberglass is more resistant to dents, is warmer to the touch, and looks better than steel.
Every fiberglass door we quote is custom made to meet your needs. We can help you choose the right glass, door panel, and lock for your dream door. The right door is important, but it must be installed properly if it is to look good and last. The installation is an often overlooked aspect of window and door sales, but it is the key to long product life.
The photo above shows a close up of a smooth fiberglass door. Notice the detail in the raised panels. This door is a flush-glazed model. There is no raised vinyl glass surround giving this the look a real wood door.
This planked fiberglass door has a mahogany wood grain. The frame is actual mahogany. They are both stained with a walnut finish. The door lite with sand blasted glass has internal wrought iron.
