RE: Front Door

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?

RE: Front Door

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!
