Open Sesame &mdash Door Materials
Put your log home’s best face forward with the perfect front door.
by: Wyatt Myers

Material: Steel

What It Is:
The top choice for security and durability, steel doors have also come a long way in the looks department. Many even have an embossed wood grain pattern.

The Look:
Some have a grain, and all have a colored finish, which is created by baked-on polyester, vinyl or paint.

Durability:
Moderate (incredibly durable; only an occasional coat of paint is necessary).

Pros:
Durable, strong and safe; less expensive than other options; making great strides in the style department.

Cons:
Available only with a colored finish; can show dents and dings; lacks the warmth of wood; high-end options cost almost as much as wood doors.

Cost:
$150 to $1,000
