Different Window & Door Materials

Getting ready to replace your old windows or door? There are several different materials to consider, and each has its pros and cons. The material you choose will primarily be determined by your top priorities—energy efficiency, maintenance, beauty, etc.

Window Materials

There are a few different window materials available—vinyl and wood are two popular ones. Wood has natural beauty many people find appealing, but it’s more vulnerable to warping and rotting and requires a bit more maintenance than other window materials. While vinyl windows are sometimes not recommended for extremely hot climates, they:

  • Are low-maintenance
  • Don’t require painting
  • Are less susceptible to rusting
  • Can help protect against water and air infiltration
  • Are energy-efficient
  • Work well with any home

Door Materials

Vinyl doors offer the same benefits as vinyl windows—minimal maintenance, higher resistance to rotting, etc. You can also choose steel or fiberglass doors. Steel exterior doors are:

  • Sturdy and strong
  • Durable
  • Low-maintenance

Fiberglass doors also require minimal maintenance—in fact, they can resemble the look of a wood door for those who prefer the natural beauty of wood but don’t want to deal with all the maintenance!
