We might not always put a lot of thought behind the kind of doors we use to enter and exit our homes, but there is a kind of science behind it! Many wooden doors can become weathered more easily than most other materials, becoming cracked or warped over time. This puts those who love the look of natural wood at a disadvantage when thinking about long-term preservation. In the early 1980’s, a new kind of composite material quickly became more popular among homeowners, for this very reason.

Composite doors were introduced primarily to answer the issue of providing a wood-like aesthetic without the problems of wood itself. Composite doors are made to be tough and maintenance-free, making them a great choice for harsh weather or humid climates.

They can mimic the look of wood with an outer texture of wood-grain that can be stained to match your desired aesthetic. So you can have the look you want with the lasting quality you need.

The function of your front door goes beyond just a way to keep the weather out or to keep you and your belongings safe. It is a large part of the curb appeal of the home, and the overall outdoor charm. Your front entry is the first thing people will see and the first way to form an opinion of your home, and that makes it an especially important thing for potential home sellers to keep in mind. Composite doors offer a durable and long lasting design aesthetic to compliment your home entryway.

Choosing the best door for the style and the functionality of your home is an important task for every homeowner.
