Top Three Shopping TipsHardwood Front Doors

Your home’s entryway is its focal point, and the front door is the first thing visitors will see. Adding a beautiful lockset and maybe a matching door knocker makes your front door pop even more. You want to present a welcoming front entryway that also works to keep out intruders and inclement weather. Think about the impact of hardwood front doors. They’re the first and last thing people touch when they come to your home.

Hardwood front doors offer an elegance, a sophisticated warmth, and a solid sound when closing. You can get hardwood front doors customized with moldings, panels, glazing, and even carvings—something you can’t do with steel or fiberglass. Here are three shopping tips to help you when facing the wide selection of hardwood front doors.

Should you buy pre-hung or slab?

You have the option to purchase hardwood front doors that are either pre-hung or slab. A pre-hung hardwood front door comes complete with the door jambs, hung on hinges, and the door itself already pre-drilled for the lockset and deadbolt. Since the door is pre-hung in the jambs, you need not worry about leveling it. Most new construction homes use pre-hung hardwood front doors. On the other hand, a slab door is just the door itself. It does not come with door jambs, rarely comes pre-drilled with holes for the lockset and deadbolt, nor does it come with hinges. It’s a slab of wood that will need drilling and leveling when installed.

How much maintenance are you willing to do?

Hardwood front doors require more maintenance than fiberglass or steel. First, the harsh sunlight causes the most harm to hardwood front doors, whether your door is clear-coated or painted. Sunlight causes paint to fade and coatings to denigrate, which means more maintenance for you. A good rule of thumb is you should sand and re-coat a varnished door every year and do the same for polyurethane doors every other year. If you decide to paint your hardwood front door, you should plan on repainting every five to six years. If your hardwood front doors are covered by a porch or a roof, you can expect less maintenance. Another maintenance consideration is to make sure your door sill is at least 4 to 6 inches from your front stoop or landing. This will prevent snow and water from building up on the door and causing rot.

How to measure for hardwood front doors

Depending on if you’re buying pre-hung or slab hardwood front doors, there are different methods to measure each. For a pre-hung door, measure the door’s width from the frame’s rough opening, meaning the opening between the studs. Then you measure the height from the header down to the subfloor. A pre-hung door will come a couple inches narrower and shorter than your opening to accommodate insulation and shims. For a slab door, measure the existing opening’s width between the door jambs and stops. Then measure the height from your finished floor to the top head jamb. Finally, measure your door’s thickness from the interior door jamb’s edge to the interior stop’s edge.

Hardwood Front Doors – A Great Option for Your Home

When you are making home improvements, one major one you can make is changing your front door. It may not seem like it would do as much as remodeling an entire room but that is where you might need some more information. Changing your front door gives your home a new look, improved security and so much more.

Many homeowners go with hardwood front doors and you should consider them too. While some benefits of hardwood doors include being more unique looking and being reasonably priced, there are others to consider such as they will:

  • Be more cost effective
  • Be more energy efficient
  • Increase the value of your home

There are many things that you may want to think about before upgrading or altering your front door. Because these hardwood doors are solid and made from a natural material, you’ll see that no two are exactly the same. Sure, oak is oak, but the grain is different, and the many shades of sealant and stains will help with that unique look. However, when you go with hardwood front doors, you will be well on your way to an overall better-looking home.

Cost Effective Front Door

While the hardwood front doors look luxurious, they are actually priced quite well. They are fairly affordable for most people which is something you would want to consider when making any home improvement. What’s the budget for this remodel? Do you want this investment to stay solid for years? Many people want to compare the hardwood front doors with the UPVC doors that are generally cheaper than hardwood. The composite doors can easily be picked up everywhere, but you’ll need to work hard to find one that looks as nice as a solid hardwood front door and stay looking nice. And just how long with the composite last?

If you buy a quality hardwood front door, you may only need to change it once, maybe twice, during your entire life. With other doors, you may need to put a lot more maintenance and cost into those. Because they last longer, the investment in a hardwood door will certainly offset the cost of doing it all over again in the near future when others wear out or start looking bad. If price is something you have been concerned about, the hardwood front doors are the way to go.

Insulating Your Home

Another excellent consideration to make when upgrading your front door is how much insulation you want for your home. If your home currently isn’t insulated well and your utility bill is through the roof, now is the time to change your front door. Consider how much lower that bill will be and factor that in when you see that hardwood is a little more expensive than the cost of composite doors. The hardwood front doors are excellent for insulating your home.

Wood is usually good for insulation because of its composition. It is generally quite effective and useful for keeping cold air out of your home and keeping the hot or warm air in. However, be sure that you are looking for a solid hardwood door for the outside of your home. If you choose a hollow core which is most often used inside, you’ll be defeating the purpose. Remember too that when you use a hardwood door, you’ll be reducing the amount of traffic and barking dog noise you will hear. If you are hoping to get your home better insulated, this is the choice for you.

Higher Property Value

It’s not just that hardwood front doors are beautiful, but they are also a good value for your home because of what they bring. Beauty yes, but also more security, and it shows you have maintained your home well. This first impression will go a long way for those who come to your home. You might want to think about increasing the property value of your home. This could be especially helpful if you are thinking about selling your home. It would bring in more money for you when selling if you have increased property value. Sometimes the real estate agent will tell you it’s about the little things, this time it’s a little larger, but it sure will return on your investment. One of the ways you can do this is by putting hardwood front doors onto your home.

Making this investment will make your home look better which helps to boost that property value. It will also demonstrate to buyers that there is built in enhanced security and beauty which do not have to be taken care of immediately upon moving in. Additionally, when you have your home assessed, they will see this improvement and alter the value of your home accordingly. Remember this when you consider upgrading your front door.

Questions And Answers

https://www.doors.com/front-doors/hardwood-front-doors

What kind of hardwoods are front doors made from?

Front doors can be made from a number of different woods. Some of the more popular hardwoods include solid oak, walnut, cherry and mahogany.

What are the characteristics of the different woods?

Solid oak is a good choice for traditional-style homes and has a very distinctive grain. It’s naturally insect- and fungus-resistant, though it doesn’t hold up as well as other hardwoods. Mahogany has a ribbon-like grain and is very heavy, durable and stable. It has a reddish-brown color, which darkens over time. Walnut has a wavy, curly grain, ranging from light to dark swirls of brown to almost purple in color. It’s also very hardy. Cherry ages to a rich reddish-brown, is stable, straight-grained, is very durable and resistant to decay.

What are the benefits of having hardwood front doors?

The look, feel and warmth of wood doors is a big wow factor and adds a lot of curb appeal. The versatility of design and style is another plus for choosing solid wood. Wood construction provides, durability, strength and aesthetic value. Wood is a naturally good insulator and very effective at keeping the cold out. In addition to keeping in the heat, wood also provides excellent sound insulation.

What are the disadvantages of using hardwood for front doors?

Solid wood doors are expensive and can cost $5,000 or more. To incur less maintenance and to ensure longevity, wood doors should be protected from the elements and be situated in a covered entryway. The roof should come out at least half the height of the door. Exposure to sun can ruin the door’s looks over time. Routine care involves recoating clear-coated doors every one to two years. Painted wood doors require a fresh coat every five or six years. Wood doors are not as energy-efficient as fiberglass doors.

What’s the difference between slab and pre-hung doors?

Pre-hung doors are at least three times the price of slab doors, but they come “already-made” and are hinged to a weather-stripped frame, with holes in place for a lock system. This eliminates the need to square the door in its jamb. They're usually used in new construction when rough framing is exposed. Slab doors, sold without hinges and often with no lockset holes, are generally used to replace existing doors when jamb and trim are in place.

What kind of hardware looks good with hardwood doors?

A handle set is a good option for a more elegant look. While most handle sets don’t have a lock on the handle itself, they come with a matching deadbolt. Whatever hardware you pick, make sure it matches your door’s hinges and threshold. Rustic front doors look good with bronze or wrought iron; classic exterior doors benefit from brass or antique brown hardware.

What kind of handle sets are there?

Section handle sets have a separate handle and deadbolt. Monolithic handle sets comprise one plate that holds the deadbolt and the top of the handle, while another plate holds the bottom of the handle. Full-length handle sets include a single plate that covers the deadbolt and entire handle.

How To Install A Prehung Door

Installing doors can seem like a far too difficult task for the average person. If you don’t have experience in construction or home improvement of some kind, you might think it is impossible for you to install or replace doors. This is why prehung doors are so popular. The fact that the pieces come together and just need to be placed into a rough opening makes installation far easier. However, it does take a lot of precision and some time. We no longer have to build everything from hand or drill every hole. Now, it is possible for the average person to replace doors without the help of a handy man.

How To Measure For A Prehung Door

If you are looking to replace a door, there are a lot of features that might make prehung doors the best option for you. Prehung doors are ideal for beginners. This is because they come with many features that make them easier to install than a slab door, like the hole for the doorknob and the fact that the hinges come already attached.

Another benefit is that you can be sure it will be well insulated, so that stress is also minimized. However, with prehung doors, you must also make sure your measurements are as accurate as possible to ensure that the door fits, and it is level.
