An opening for fiberglass doors
The Principia Stat of the Week tracks the growth of fiberglass.
Fiberglass doors are being manufactured with newer, modern designs. These new designs are contributing to fiberglass growing faster than wood and steel materials, growing at 4.8% by volume compared to wood, which is growing at 4.2% and steel at 3.0%.
Growth in fiberglass can also be attributed to its performance as well as its cost. A typical standard size fiberglass door will cost 20-30% less than its wood counterpart. Further, the wood door segment is heavily reliant on customization which make most wood doors substantially more expensive than fiberglass.
