Door Materials

Services in Barrington, IL

Once upon time, doors were mainly made out of only wood and stone. Fortunately, that time is gone. These days, doors are made out of several high-quality materials, including wood, fiberglass, and steel.

Various Door Materials to Choose From

If you are looking to buy a door in Chicagoland, Olson Windows, Doors, Siding, and Roofing is the company to call. Whether you are in the market for a fiberglass door, a steel door, or a wood door, we can accommodate your material and style preferences. Provided by Pella, Marvin, Lindsay, Loewen, and Therma-Tru, our doors are of only the highest quality.


Fiberglass doors have grown in popularity in the last decade or so. This is because the manufacturing processes of fiberglass have been perfected. While fiberglass doors were once seen as something of a novelty, they are now seen as a viable front door option.

Fiberglass doors are a beneficial door option for several different reasons. In addition to providing top-notch durability, they also offer exceptional insulation capabilities. Resistant to the negative effects of moisture and sunlight, they also require very little maintenance.

Aesthetically speaking, fiberglass doors look fantastic. Designed to look like wood doors, they are available in a variety of different styles and colors. This allows them to be suitably matched with all types of homes and styles.

The door installation specialists at Olson have installed fiberglass doors on many homes throughout Chicagoland. Those who opt for fiberglass doors realize almost immediately that they have made a smart decision.


Two Panel Arched Wood Entry DoorsWood has served as a suitable front door material for hundreds of years. The reason for this is simple: wood works and ages remarkably well.

Not only are wood front doors beautiful, they are extremely durable as well. Wood doors can receive tons of wear and tear and still maintain their beauty.

Endowed with classic aesthetics, wood doors are capable of evoking various reactions. The type of wood you use for your door has a lot to do with your style preferences. Some wood doors have a more regal feel. Other woods have a more rustic feel. Our team of experts will help you choose the wood that captures what you are trying to convey.

Olson has installed wood doors for countless customers, with each installed door possessing the highest quality of craftsmanship. With a wood door supplied by Marvin, Pella, Loewen, and Lindsay, we sell and install only the finest doors for our customers.


Steel DoorsAnother great door material is steel. Steel doors have been used on homes and commercial buildings for decades, offering top-notch durability and security capabilities.

Steel doors stand out in many ways. Since steel is such a strong substance, it’s almost impossible to damage. It’s resistant not only to physical wear and tear, but to moisture, insects, and sunlight as well.

A steel door will typically last for around 30 years with absolutely no maintenance required. This makes it a great option for those who would just like to install a door and forget it!

Style-wise, steel doors offer a sufficient number of options. Steel doors are available in both solid and windowed models. With plenty of colors available, there is sure to be one that fits the style of your house.
