Steel doors are the most economical option. But that doesn’t mean sacrificing quality—steel doors have a reputation for being very secure. They’re constructed with steel panels on both sides of a polyurethane core, providing strength along with insulation from the elements. Additionally, steel doors are available in a wide variety of design options, including high-definition panels and decorative glass lites, to complement any home design.
However, the door’s construction can also hinder the durability. If your steel door does
dent, it can be hard to repair and will likely not pop out of the material. They are also more likely to scratch and rust more easily. And, since steel doors are value-oriented, many store-bought options arrive unfinished and must be primed and painted prior to installation.

come pre-finished with white paint, so there’s no need for additional finishing unless you want to add some color. They’re also constructed with rot-resistant bottom rails to combat rust as well as cracking and warping common in wood-edge or steel-edge doors.
