below is a link to a previous good discussion.

Some things to consider...will there be an exterior storm door to protect it? Is there a covered porch that will also protect it? If it isn't protected, which direction is it facing and are you in New York?

I've had fiberglass doors in two houses now. Never had a problem and both have done well against New England winters.

Enjoy the journey!
