Steel French doors are heavier and offer a solid fit into doorframes that require a measured level of security. Steel French doors are better equipped to resist break ins or similar damage to the structure. Many of the qualities of rust prevention will need to be addressed for untreated doors. Paint prep is a factor similar to wooden doors. The steel French door will need to be pre painted or have adequate priming and curing to prevent the flaking of paint in the future.
Security is on everyones mind when installing a fiberglass French door. Being able to see inside the home, when someone is home or not, can make many feel vulnerable. If that is a worry, heavy duty framing and glass should be considered.
