Though a custom wood door will always have a place in suburban homeowner’s hearts, fiberglass is more and more becoming the top pick for many. Mainly this is because you can have a fiberglass door that looks like wood. Or it can look like metal, or more custom or unusual materials or design types. And after aesthetics are handled, you’re left with a door that outlasts a wood door, outperforms it, and tends to deal with the weather we see in the Columbus area far better, as well.
For a long time, homeowners, and even business owners, struggled with the idea of a metal door anywhere but on an outbuilding. But with modern aesthetic advances, like embossing and custom metal door fabrication, you can get a metal door that looks awesome, makes a statement, and provides you with the utmost in home security. It’s a win-win-win across the board, and many homeowners in Ohio are taking notice.
The home is rarely ever looked at like it’s a “standardized” thing anymore. The whole cookie-cutter look that came about in the 70s has long since passed, and now homeowners are looking to really inject personality and definition into every aspect of a home’s exterior. To do this in 2018 many are looking at brighter, bolder colors. Matching them effectively to look good can be a bit challenging, but with the use of softer two-tone setups or colors that compliment your siding you can wind up with something that looks really unique and cool.
Outside of aesthetics, energy-efficiency gets bigger and more present in homeowner’s minds each and every passing year. It’s no longer enough to have a door that can stand up to sun, rain, and ingress—we want doors that help us stay comfortable and energy-conscious, too. And luckily, technology has been keeping pace. ENERGY STAR® rated doors are extremely popular, and with their superb efficiency ratings and slew of additional home benefits it’s no wonder.
