Fiberglass entry doors are very airtight and energy efficient. Fiberglass doors often come insulated, which provides an additional energy saving advantage over wood doors. They offer up to five times the insulating ability of wooden doors.
Sliding doors move easily because of the rollers installed on either side of the door. However, if the door gets stuck and must be pushed against to move, it is likely the rollers have an obstruction or are failing because of wear. Dirty rollers can have various items in them leaves, sticks, dirt which obstructs door movement. They will need to be cleaned to be able to move again without getting stuck on the track or against one another. If they have cracks or bends, homeowners will need new rollers. This is especially true for sliding doors with metal rollers, which rust over time.
