Selecting the right front door for your home

When selecting the right front door for their home, homeowners should consider several important factors:



Different materials offer different benefits. For example, Therma-Tru doors are known for their fiberglass construction, which combines durability with energy efficiency and minimal maintenance. Compare this with wood, which offers classic beauty but requires more upkeep, or steel, which is strong but might not offer the same aesthetic appeal.


Style and Aesthetics

The door should complement the architectural style of the home. Whether it's modern, traditional, or something else, the door can be a focal point that enhances the home's curb appeal.


Energy Efficiency

A well-insulated door can reduce energy costs by keeping heat in during the winter and out during the summer. Look for doors with good insulation properties and energy efficiency ratings.


The front door is a critical security point. Choose a door with strong, reliable locks and consider additional security features like reinforced frames or multi-point locking systems.


Color and Finish

The color and finish of the door should harmonize with the rest of the house’s exterior. Therma-Tru doors often come in a variety of finishes and colors, offering flexibility in design.



Factor in the cost of the door itself, as well as installation and any additional hardware or features. It’s important to find a balance between quality and affordability.

Maintenance Requirements

Consider how much time and effort you are willing to invest in maintenance. Fiberglass doors like Therma-Tru typically require less maintenance than wood doors.


Warranty and After-Sales Service

Check the warranty offered by the manufacturer. A good warranty can provide peace of mind and protection for your investment.


Local Climate

The local climate can influence the type of door that is best. For example, in areas with high humidity or coastal environments, a fiberglass door might be preferable due to its resistance to warping and corrosion.
