Wood Doors Overview
An entryway is the focal point of a home's facade. And the front door, its most prized asset. Dressed with a fine lockset and handsome knocker, the door extends a friendly welcome while also discouraging intruders and shutting out the weather. It's the first thing we grab when we arrive and the last thing we touch when we leave. So it's easy to understand why many of us still like our doors to be made of wood.
Superior Durability and Insulation
Most of these entry doors are also solid wood or feature a solid engineered wood core, meaning you have superior durability and insulation. This may not only help with security concerns and energy savings, but could also reduce the amount of noise you hear from the outdoors.
Wood Doors can be custom made to fit any size opening or trimmed to a specific size doorway. In this regard, wood is a material that easy to work with and can be made to fit your exact needs. You can even have windows or space for glass inserts cut into a custom door.
Wood grain is one of the most attractive features of a wooden exterior door. As with wood furniture, there are numerous options of wood to choose from when it comes to your door. You can have everything from a modern and sleek bamboo or teak to a traditional oak or mahogany or even a more rustic cedar or knotty pine — along with plenty of selections that fall somewhere in between. Door panels, molding and any special feature you want can be crafted into the wood. You can also customize the finish of your door with stain or paint. Stains are often a popular choice allowing you to show the wood’s natural grain.
