As you explore your entry door replacement options, one of the first questions you might ask is, glass or no glass? With strength, style and a host of other benefits, solid slab entry doors offer a great choice for many homes. If you’re not sure how solid slab doors measure up, this quick overview from Simple Home Improvements can help you make the right choice for your Totowa, NJ home.
Doors with decorative glass panels let in light and create a distinctive look. But while these doors are highly durable, it’s still possible for intruders to break glass the glass and gain access to your home. When security is your top priority, the rugged fiberglass construction of a solid slab door offers added peace of mind.
Entry doors play an important role in energy efficiency. This is because when improperly insulated, doors allow cold air to enter and warm air to escape, requiring you to raise the thermostat – and your heating costs. Thanks to their energy-efficient core, solid slab fiberglass entry doors offer a powerful thermal barrier between your home’s interior and harsh New Jersey winters. And while double- and triple-pane glass panels offer reliable insulation, a solid slab door offers an edge in energy efficiency.
For many of us, the home is a sanctuary away from the distractions of the outside world. Yet for those living in busy neighborhoods or in houses close to the street, constant foot and vehicle traffic can bring unwanted noise and attention. Solid slab entry doors create a true barrier between your home and the outside environment, blocking noise and glances from passers-by, so you can relax with loved ones without intrusions.
