Why are External Wooden Front Doors better than Steel Doors?

You have a mind-blowing house with perfect interior decorating, but whenever anyone comes in they keep quiet and say nothing about your exquisitely designed home. You scratch your head and ask yourself why? Maybe it’s because your house has a poorly designed or mismatched front door.

When someone enters your house the first two things they see are your front door and entryway. However, if they are not designed properly, the person’s mind forms the image of an improper and shabby house. You can’t often change a person’s first impression, but with a little planning you can set the right ambience from the beginning.

When selecting an external front door, functionality is as important as design. Having a magnificent front door is not the only concern because while it may be able to create a good impression, what’s the point of having it if it is not durable or secure enough to last and keep your family safe. Most people can’t spend a fortune on front doors, so making the right choice from a wide selection of materials is extremely important.

Some homeowners may choose to use steel external front doors, while for others the appearance of wooden front doors is preferred. Not just because it enhances your entryway by its beauty, a wooden front door is better than steel for several reasons. It’s more durable and stands up against harsh winds, heavy rains, and sunlight; it also provides better security against intruders.

Aesthetic Appeal

Interior designers and homeowners find that steel doors give an extremely cold and industrial look. These doors have little design versatility because no matter how beautifully they are made, they lack texture. Wood doors are much better choices where front doors are concerned. Because wood is a natural material and homeowners have the freedom to stain or polish it, the wood front door will have a nicer aesthetic appeal to it.

While steel doors give a-single-material look, wooden doors offer a variety of styles and looks. Crafted from a variety of wood material such as maple, pine, applewood, oak, cherry or several others, each wood has a different texture, quality, and appeal. An external wooden front door gives a warm, cozy, and welcoming look to your house.

Wooden doors have traditionally been the preferred choice by interior designers and architects when carving is considered. You can have a beautifully hand-carved or manufactured wooden door with a range of designs from traditional 4- or 6-raised panel, to various specialty designs such as flowers, animals, and others. Be sure to review the wide variety of options and designs and choose the one that fits your specific style and taste.

Price & Functionality

Steel doors are generally less expensive than wood doors. Today however, due to improvements in manufacturing processes, we have several wooden doors available that are cheaper than a steel door. In addition to reasonable costs, another reason the wooden door has the edge over a steel door is its functionality.

Having a wooden external front door will help ensure that heat is not easily transferred to the inside of your home. Because steel is a better conductor of heat than wood, during the summer steel doors tend to become hot. Once they heat up they transfer this heat, eventually making your home warmer. On the other hand, wood is a poor conductor of heat, which in this case is just one more benefit. A wooden front door can withstand heat for a very long time; it doesn’t absorb heat easily, so less absorption can lead to a cooler environment.

Durability, Maintenance, and Care

Steel doors are finished at factories with special coatings that can inhibit rust, but wooden doors are finished using special polishing materials. With steel doors, you may need to continuously repaint them so that they can continue looking good and be protected from moisture that could still lead to rusting. While wood doors can be painted, they certainly don’t need to be; you can polish or sand them after several years in order to give them new look. If the wooden door is carved, generally the original stain or finish will protect it from the element and look beautiful for years.

Steel door maintenance requires a professional to do the repair while the maintenance of wood doors can be more easily achieved through DIYs (Do-it-yourself-projects). Steel doors tend to get scratches and dents, which further deteriorate their condition and appearance, but wood doors are resistant to damage caused by scratches, and dents are impossible due to the nature of wood. Welcome guests into your home with a quality and beautiful long-lasting exterior wooden front door.
