Thanks to advances in technology and design, exterior doors can be made from a number of different materials. Generally, all these materials offer the same design and configuration possibilities. Each material has its strengths and weaknesses and it is important to understand that good quality exterior doors can be made using any of these materials. What is paramount is a good energy-efficient design.
Wood exterior doors are desirable for their natural beauty, good insulating value and structural strength. They are widely available in a number of different woods ranging from pine, oak, cedar, mahogany and walnut. They do, however, require significant protection from the elements as well as regular maintenance. Manufacturers are required to treat wood with a preservative to help prevent rotting but ongoing maintenance is the only way to ensure that your wood exterior door lasts and performs.
Steel exterior doors are actually made from a combination of materials. The interior structural components (rails and stiles) are often wood, the inner core is filled with insulating foam and the outer skin is made of galvanized steel. The inner wood structure gives it stability and strength. The foam core provides good insulation and the steel skins are durable, resistant to warping or rotting and require little maintenance. Steel exterior doors can be painted any number of colours. They are also available with pre-finished PVC coatings that simulate a wood-grain finish.
Fibreglass exterior doors are constructed in the same fashion as steel exterior doors with wood stiles and rails and an inner core of injected foam. The outer skin is fibreglass. Fibreglass is very strong and durable. In addition to a flat painted surface, fibreglass can also be embossed to give the texture and appearance of wood.
Vinyl exterior doors employ a multi-chambered vinyl structure for both the frames and panels (sashes) utilizing a steel, aluminum or wood re-enforcement to add strength and prevent distortion. Vinyl doors are good thermal insulators because of their multi-chambered designs and offer good thermal performance ratings. Vinyl is a very durable material and is resistant to extreme weather conditions. It is also very resistant to breakage and provides good protection against forced entry through the door. Vinyl doors will not rust, dent, or scratch, and require no special maintenance.
From the types of patio doors to the choice of glass, it is important to explore all the available options to choose the right patio doors. One of the most important aspects to consider is the door frame material. There are several options available for patio door sashes and frames as well. You can select the one that best compliments your property.
Aluminum frames and sash are strong, lightweight and durable. In addition to its strength, aluminum is low maintenance and resists warping. Aluminum, however, is a high conductor of heat energy and, as such, a significant source of heat loss. To compensate, aluminum frames and sash must incorporate an effective thermal break, such as PVC or urethane, between the inside and outside surfaces to counteract conductive heat loss.
Wood patio doors are desirable for their natural beauty, good insulating value and structural strength. They do, however, require significant protection from the elements as well as regular maintenance. Manufacturers are required to treat wood with a preservative to help prevent rotting but ongoing maintenance is the only way to ensure that wood lasts and performs. Wood frames and sash are often clad on the exterior side with PVC, aluminum or other factory-applied finishes to reduce the maintenance requirements and increase its durability.
Vinyl (PVC) has grown in popularity because it is a good thermal performer, lightweight, resistant to the elements and is easy to maintain. All vinyl patio doors incorporate some type of reinforcement in the frame and /or panels to maintain structural integrity.
Fibreglass patio doors are constructed in the same fashion as vinyl patio exterior doors. Fibreglass is very strong and durable. In addition to a flat painted surface, fibreglass can also be embossed to give it the texture and appearance of wood. Unlike vinyl, fibreglass does not need reinforcement to maintain structural integrity.
Combination frames and sash combine two or more of the materials described above. The objective is to capitalize on the best features of each material so that the finished product will provide good thermal performance, durability and strength, and require minimal maintenance.
Composite materials, in contrast to combination frames, blend different materials, such as wood fibres and resins for example, together into a single unified composite material through a manufacturing process. The frames and sash are then manufactured from this unique new material.

Still on the fence about door replacement in Winnipeg? Here are a few questions that can make the decision easier for you:
Is a Fire-Rated Door Necessary?
The outside doors in your house do not need to be fire-rated. However, the door to your attached garage must be fire-rated for opening protection. They are constructed using materials that are at least partially fire-resistant to help put out or contain the fire.
Can Replacing Old Doors Save Me Money on Heating and Cooling?
Yes, high-quality replacement doors installed and sealed correctly can significantly impact your heating and cooling expenditures.
How Can I Tell If My Door Has to Be Replaced or If It Can Be Fixed?
It is advised that one should contact a professional door contractor to determine whether a new door is necessary or if a repair is all you need. Choose a reputable business like ours that provides a free in-house assessment and won't pressure you to replace your windows or doors unless necessary.
How Much Time Does Installing a Door Take?
