Fiberglass doors can look just like beautiful wood doors, but they’re more durable, more difficult to scratch, and they’re more energy efficient. They can typically be stained or painted in the color you’d prefer for your home, which means you can focus on just finding the right style instead of making sure it’s available in the color you desire. The fiberglass doors are available in a smooth or wood grain texture with a rot-resistant composite bottom rail and door facing to prevent damage. These doors can include intricate details as well as be a stylish option that fits well with any home style.
