Why We Only Do Fiberglass Doors In OC

We Think Fiberglass Offers You The Best Of Style And Efficiency, So It’s All We Install!

Our company has been doing NOTHING but exterior residential doors…for over a decade now.

Full-service. World-class installations. The very best customer care. The works.

Over that time, we’ve learned through sheer in-the-industry-trenches experience, almost everything there is to know about these products. That includes their major manufacturers and all the nuts and bolts involved in custom installations.

And while you could ask us anything imaginable about what we affectionately call Door Science… guess what the #1 Question is that we get from Orange County, CA homeowners…

“Hey, why do you ONLY install fiberglass entry doors?”

In brief, what follows are our six core reasons all bundled up into one easy-to-scan article for your viewing pleasure.  

Enjoy!

 

Reason #1: Because Fiberglass Entry Doors are THE BEST wood alternative.

There was a time when fiberglass entry doors had some catching up to do. They couldn’t compete with the natural beauty of wooden doors. In fact, it’s incredibly common for homeowners to assume fiberglass STILL can’t compete, but nothing could be further from the truth. 

Fact: You’ve probably mistaken a large assortment of wood-grain fiberglass doors for the real thing. We all have. Modern manufacturing makes it almost impossible to tell anymore.  

Did you know even the SOUND of wooden doors is accurately mimicked?

 

Reason #2: Because they no longer limit your style choices.

In truth, if you’re like most homeowners you’ve never invested in a brand new replacement entry door (let alone something custom and personalized). Even if you’re still living in your childhood home, that old wooden door could be up to twenty years old! 

Once you begin diving into the options, you’ll see they’re near endless. Here at Today’s Entry Doors, we stick with the titans of quality: JELD-WEN, MASONITE, and THERMA-TRU. Together all their astounding lines are more than anyone should try and wade through by themselves, which is why our consultants are so well-trained. 

 

Reason #3: Because the security of Fiberglass Entry Doors is outstanding! 

If you’ve got a monstrous solid iron door and frame guarding the entry to your suburban castle, then fiberglass can’t compete. However, in most cases here in Orange County, they ARE as strong as conventional steel and wood entry doors.

At Today’s Entry Doors, we take the immense strength of fiberglass door systems and…

“REINFORCE them with a 16-Guage Steel Plate”

This extra step ensures the door frames we install are not a weak link in your home security chain.

Need trustworthy proof of the security of fiberglass door systems from outside the industry? Talk to police and SWAT teams who have to get through them by force using battering rams. 

  • They don’t ding or dent like hollow steel or iron doors. 
  • Innovative fiberglass manufacturing has made them stronger and more secure than wood doors as well. 

 

Reason #4: Because they’re perfect for busy homeowners who need less maintenance in their lives. 

Fiberglass entry doors take the gold prize in terms of low maintenance, hands down. They can stand up to almost anything Mother Nature dishes out — along with everyday usage — without being susceptible to moisture.

They’ve got no seams or breaks in the outer protective layers. 

This means no swelling, rotting, peeling, warping, or disfigurement to fret about. 

Bottom Line: They require a fraction of the upkeep of wood doors, but can be just as stunning. 

 

Reason #5: Because of their superior (unbeatable) energy efficiency ratings.

Along with low maintenance, fiberglass entry doors also dominate when it comes to lowering your energy costs

Some models these days can deliver ultra-high R-10 insulation ratings! 

Per door industry research, fiberglass doors are five times more energy-efficient than wood doors. Fiberglass doors are filled with heat and cold-resistant material. This means that your home will keep you cool during hot summers and warm during cold winters.

Our manufacturers ensure the doors are both sturdy and deliver terrific thermal performance. This keeps more of the inside, inside, and the outside, outside. And as your energy bills go down, so does your overall carbon footprint. 

 

Reason #6: Because you get LIFETIME guarantees and great workmanship coverage. 

Thanks to their first-class quality, as a consumer you know you’re going to get industry-best coverage on both ends: from the manufacturer and your installer. Rest assured your new exterior doors are built to last your entire lifetime in the home, or for the next soon-to-be owner.

 At Today’s Entry Doors, we’re so confident we also offer a 2-year labor guarantee. If anything goes wrong due to the installation, we’ll come out and fix it free of charge.
