Glass Fiber French Doors Cost
Why use a Glass Fibre Door?
As an alternative to wooden or uPVC, why not take a look at the latest Glass Fiber French Doors and what benefits they offer?
A typical reaction to being offered a fiberglass door would, I expect, be to dismiss it as something of a joke but using the latest construction methods glass fibre doors are as good, if not better in some areas, than wood or vinyl (upvc).
A simple comparison shows how well they stand up against other materials:Much like uPVC doors, they do not require a lot of looking after and come with high quality locks and hinges so that they not only keep out the cold, but unwanted guest too, with stainless steel hinges, multipoint locks and toughened or laminated glazed sections.
One of the features that attracts homeowners to this material is the surface finish – with designs that can be stained to recreate the look of authentic hardwood so well that, unless you get really close to inspect, it’s almost impossible to tell the difference from the “real thing”. You also have the option to buy them in a range of “ready made” colours.
Over the longer term the durability of glass fiber door installations show up when compared to steel clad versions, because even if you take care of it well, the steel will at some point get a certain amount of rust. When compared to any type of wooden door they do not react to humidity and therefore you don’t get the warping, cracking or distortion problems – and of course you don’t have to paint them.
Energy efficiency levels on installations are good due to the composite internal insulation construction
In terms of prices, you could easily find softwood or metal at the lower end of the range, with Hardwood, Composite or some of the best uPVC designs at the top end – this would put fiberglass doors somewhere in the middle price band.
