Cost of a Fiberglass Front Door And More

Door with sitelites
If you are looking to increase your home’s curb appeal, replacing your front door is one of the best things you can do. As a general rule, it’s a relatively budget-friendly upgrade that has a big impact. As a matter of fact, new front doors have an incredibly high return on investment (ROI) if you’re thinking about selling your house at any point.
Fiberglass front doors have gained popularity over the course of the past few years. If you’re considering one of these doors, you might be wondering exactly how much it will cost you. It’s important to bear in mind that the price of the door itself is not the only issue you should take into consideration! You must also think about the amount of time and effort you will save by selecting a fiberglass door rather than a more upkeep-intensive wood or steel styles.
1.    Fiberglass doors’ price tags – The actual cost of an installed fiberglass door, including the door frame, hardware and locks, and the door itself, usually averages between $2,500 and $3,000. Depending upon any optional features, such as upgraded hardware or sidelites, that you choose, your final price might be over or under this median cost.
2.    Considering ROI – As you read earlier, the return on investment for doors is quite high. You can expect to get about $2,500 back from your door replacement if you put your house on the market; this could actually be the price you paid for the door depending on what sales and special offers you’re able to take advantage of when you make your purchase!
3.    Think about the easy upkeep – Wood doors, and steel doors to a lesser extent, require quite a bit of maintenance in order to remain in top condition. This is especially true of painted wood doors that typically have to have fresh coats put on at least once a year. Fiberglass doors require very little upkeep, saving for the occasional wipe down with a wet rag. You will save a significant amount of effort, making the slightly higher price of a fiberglass door completely worth it in the long run!
