Wellcome to Remodeling Online - Exterior Doors

My Front EntranceThere are all different types of exterior doors for your home. The front door which more people use as their main and everyday door. This door is like the front grill on your car, it makes a statement about your home. The front door is also always 36″ wide.

The next most common exterior door is your back door. The back door is not always on the back of your home but somewhere near the rear. The most common width for the back door is 32″. This exterior door unlike the front door, serves more function than beauty.

The most common materials that exterior doors are made from are wood, steel, and fiberglass. Wood exterior doors with there natural beauty require a protective coating of paint or a clear finish like polyurethane and are the hardest to maintain. Steel exterior doors are the toughest and most durable but also require protective coating of paint and are very plain with not many design details. Now on to the latest and greatest. Fiberglass exterior door offer the best of both worlds, they could be stained to have the natural beauty of wood with the strength and durability of steel.
