exterior basement door material choice
 
it's time for a new basement entry door. I can get steel, galvanized steel, or fiberglass. Looking for opinions on whether galvanized or fiberglass would be the best choice.

TIA

I'd go with a Bilco bulkhead in Fiberglass.

I would get galv steel or fiberglass,regular steel will rust. some steel doors come with magnetic weatherstripping and helps create a tight seal when shut..

A steel door would probably be less expensive, but I'd go with fiberglass. Another possible option is an aluminum-clad wooden door.
