The Best Material For Exterior Doors In Winter

Winter is nearly here and the holidays are in full effect! With many of us scrambling to the stores in order to find the perfect gifts, decorate our homes and indulge in delectable foods, the holiday season is always best spent in the comfort of our homes with our families by our sides. Although it’s one of the busiest times of the year, it’s never too late to think about how you can improve the comfort of your home, especially when you and your family will be spending more time in it as the weather gets colder. Exterior doors can be one way you may not have thought of! 

Exterior doors are an essential part of your home that may often get overlooked. Different doors can work better for different climates, therefore it is essential to understand which material is best for preventing drafts, keeping your home warm and reducing energy costs. Keep on reading to learn about what the best material is for exterior doors in the winter!


Steel is known for being an extremely durable and tough material, making it an excellent choice for your exterior door. Steel is strong and can help keep your home warmer by limiting any cold drafts while offering extra protection for your home. Steel doors are easy to maintain and will not be easily damaged by heavy snow or extreme temperatures. 


Fibreglass is a great choice if you are looking for a customizable option that’s also affordable and long wearing. Fibreglass doors do not conduct heat well, making them the perfect solution for a home in the winter.
