Fiberglass doors?

  1. Hi there.
    Have any of you heard of fiberglass doors? I mean the entrance door to your house. We went looking at new doors and the salesman was really pushing the fiberglass. He stated that it will never crack, rust, dent, etc. I'm skeptical. Help

    Take a look.

    Hmmm, looks like a very nice door to me. Can you see out of it just as good as glass? Will it hold in the heat from your house this winter? Will it let in any cold breezes? Hmmm, I know I'm not THAT much help........but that was my 2cents

    We just put in fiberglass windows and they warranty them for life. Some friends bought a fiberglass door a few years ago and just love it. If you're skeptical, buy one, give it to me to test out. The neighbor kids broke mine (NOT fiberglass).

    I've never heard of fiberglass doors. But I'm in favor of fiberglass! My father was one of the pioneers in the field and held a lot of the early patents related to fiberglass.

    Those doors look really nice, and seem to have a lot of advantages over wooden doors. I got the names of the local dealers off the website, I may try to get one as we have been talking about replacing our front door next spring. Thanks for the heads up!!
