Steel exterior doors offer many advantages that homeowners love.
They are strong, durable and long-lasting doors. You can choose from a host of options and you can use these doors at virtually any entryway.
Benefits of Steel Doors
These doors are stronger than almost any other option, and provide an exceptional level of security. They are also highly fire-resistant. For peace of mind, nothing can top this material.
This strength also equates to durability. Doors made from this material will endure for decades, requiring little or no maintenance. They will never warp or crack and provide a superior level of insulation.
Benefits of GlassCraft Buffalo Forge Steel Doors
GlassCraft offers superior doors that we recommend for their beauty, security, and durability. They come in many sizes, with the option to closely trim all sides for an optimal fit. And because they are thermally broken, you won’t lose either warm or cool air to the outside world. Other doors may accumulate condensation in warm months and frost in cold months, but GlassCraft doors never will.
You will feel safe with these steel doors, too. The 18-gauge steel is dent resistant and has optional reinforced locks and jambs. Raised mouldings keep glass panels intact and add an extra layer of beauty to your home’s entrance.
And if that weren’t enough, GlassCraft doors are always in stock and ready to ship, and cost about 40% less than other premium steel doors. It’s easy to see why RMWD prefers Buffalo Forge Steel Doors!
