Best door style
Keith

Hi, I am looking to have my back foot replaced. This door is used as the main entry to the house and it opens into the mud room. Currently the door that is there is really bad. It lets in a ton of air. You can see light all around the door frame. My question is should I have a steel, fiberglass or wood door? I’m thinking either steel or fiberglass.

Steel door installed with a magnetic weather strip is a good choice, but steel doors do rust over time.

Fiberflass with the proper weather striping is also good.
