Swinging / Hinged


Aluminium
-  is used commonly in storefronts and for commercial use. It also has specific residential applications

Steel- industry has moved away from wood doors to steel because they offer improved security and maintenance.

Fiberglass - are durable and energy efficient. They can be smooth or textured (wood grained); painted or stained textured doors look like real wood.

Vinyl - low maintenance and energy efficient. Vinyl is not as popular as fiberglass.

Wood - has many options available. They can be wood, aluminium-clad, or vinyl-clad. The most beautiful and elegant option available is adding different species of hardwood. Having them aluminium or vinyl clad reduces maintenance and protects your investment.


Sliding Doors


Aluminium
- is great for sliding doors. It is durable and has a lot of configuration options.

Vinyl - is more energy efficient than aluminium and needs minimum maintenance, but is restricted in configuration.

Wood -  is commonly used in french-style sliding doors. Has the same multiple options you would find with hinged doors.
