When you really think about it, your jersey shore home really takes a beating from the environment. Your home has to withstand strong winds and rain, erosion and weathering, and exposure to salt in the air and water.
With this in mind, it’s important to balance extreme durability with the elegance that everyone wants from their entry door.
Which Entry Door Material is Best for Your Jersey Shore Home?
When looking at your material options, fiberglass is probably your best choice. Wood tends to expand and contract when is exposed to hot and cold weather and can swell when exposed to moisture and steel doors are susceptible to rust if they haven’t been coated properly.
The ProVia Embarq is the best choice for several reasons. First, the fiberglass frame is ultra durable and can resist rot, moisture damage, swelling, cracking, warping, etc. The doors itself is designed for insulation. It’s 43% thicker than standard exterior doors, allowing for more insulation inside the door. This plays a big factor for shore homes. Your door is an area where a lot of heat can escape in the winter and enter in the summer. This can make it harder to maintain stable internal temperatures, which you’ll see in your heating and cooling costs.
I also want to talk a bit about the design options. ProVia’s Embarq offers an incredibly realistic wood grain look. They also offer tons of paint and finish options with a diverse array of door styles, glass options, and sidelites to combine with your door. So aside from this door being one of the most energy-efficient on the market and ultra-durable, you can also get the designer look to boost your curb appeal.
