    How energy efficient are fibreglass?

    Post  MichaelAWar on Fri Nov 30, 2018 3:14 am

    Hello guys,
    I need a new entry door for my house. The current one's panel has given up due to exposure to the weather and wetness. There were metal shells to protect the frames from harsh weather but, it didn't work as expected I guess. I think it is time to switch from wood doors to fibreglass doors. The latter one is more durable, rustless and there are fewer chances for dent compared to wood entry doors. A friend has suggested me a company who sells front entry doors Toronto. But before going to them I need to clear few doubts regarding fibreglass doors.
    How energy efficient are fibreglass?
    As the name suggests, they are made up of glasses. Will they give away when the summer comes?
    How are these fibreglass windows when it comes to security? Will it be easy for a burglar to break in if I install these windows? (I know it sounds dumb, But I had to ask)
    Nothing comes without any cons. So what are the disadvantages of installing fibreglass doors?

    I would recommend a steel door, especially if you are in a climate with varying extreme temperatures.
