Years ago, fiberglass doors looked like plastic. Today, fiberglass resembles wood. It's easier to maintain and insulates better than wood. And it's usually cheaper - try $479 for a craftsman-style fiberglass door at Home Depot vs. $819 for the same style in wood.

But maintained properly, wood can last for years. Proper weather-stripping can keep out drafts. And unlike fiberglass, wood can be cut to fit any size opening. Also, the interiors of wood doors are now laminated, which adds stability and prevents warping, said Norm Abram, master carpenter for This Old House.

In fact, thousands of these occurrences prompted the development of these standards.

Low-e coatings play an important role in the overall performance of a window and can significantly affect the overall heating, lighting, and cooling costs of a home.

But what exactly is low-e glass? How does it work? To answer these questions, the ¡°e¡± in low-e glass must be explained. The ¡°e¡± stands for emissivity. Emissivity is the ability of a material to radiate energy. When heat or light energy¡ªtypically from the sun or HVAC system¡ªis absorbed by glass it is either shifted away by air movement or re-radiated by the glass surface.
