Pittsburgh Climate Recommendations
Like the rest of Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh experiences four distinct seasons. Summers tend to be warm and humid while winters tend to be cold and snowy. Thanks to the city’s location on the windward side of the Appalachian Mountains, ample precipitation is expected year-round.
Wind, sleet, and snow can all have an affect on your front door depending on its finish, the direction it faces, and whether or not it’s protected by an overhang. Storm doors can help protect fiberglass entry doors, while energy-efficient glass on wood and fiberglass doors alike can help keep your home comfortable.
Keep warm in the winter and cool in the summer by helping to reduce the loss of climate controlled air from your home. Doors with Low-E insulating glass can help keep your home insulated.
Fiberglass Windows or Doors
For good insulation and protection from drafts and leaks, choose fiberglass entry doors.
Winter cold and snow can impact your front door, depending on its finish, the location, the direction it faces, and whether or not there’s an overhang. Heavy air moisture levels can impact a wood door more than other materials like fiberglass. Protect the look of your front door with a storm door to help keep your main entrance looking great for years.
