Consider a Fiberglass Entry Door for Your Home

By Rick Wedding •  Updated: 03/24/21 •  2 min read

Has your front entry door seen better days? There are thousands of homes around the greater Cincinnati area in need of a new front entry.

Production home builders were installing (and still are) low cost steel doors for years and the chickens have come home to roost.

Forget about using a steel door. Look for a fiberglass door that compliments your home and improves home value and curb appeal.

Fiberglass Entry Doors

The two most popular brands in this market are Therma Tru and Masonite doors. Both products have been around for many years and are respected for their quality.

Therma-Tru Fiberglass Entry Doors

The Therma-Tru brand has many styles to choose from. You can visit their website to see all the door and glass styles available. They even have software that allows you to see what door might be a good fit for your home.

The Therma-Tru is usually looked at as the top company with its fiberglass skins looking second to none. Along with that comes a slighter higher price tag over other brands.

Masonite Fiberglass Doors

Masonite produces a very nice product. This brand has continued to deliver quality over the years, and has some new innovative ideas.

I personally use Francis Schulze to provide Masonite doors to my clients.

Francis-Schulze offers a complete door system with an endless combination of options to meet the unique needs and design tastes of myr customers. Options include door types and styles, panel designs, textures, stain and paint colors, decorative glass, hinges, threshholds, jamb/frame configurations, sidelights, transoms, handlesets, locksets, deadbolts, and much more. This all-in-one system offers endless possibilities to design a beautiful exterior door that truly reflects my customer’s style.

Increasing Your Homes Curb Appeal with a New Entry Door

One of the easiest and most important ways to increase your home’s curb appeal is with a new entry door. Therma-Tru reports, you can increase your home’s perceived value by $18,750 on average*!

How Much Will a New Entry Door Cost?

It really depends on the size and glass you choose. Other factors will include whether the door is being stained or painted. I have a door cost guide you can look at and see what budget you may need.
