Wood exterior front doors are a popular choice for understandable reasons. They're sturdy, good-looking, and can last for years with proper care.

Wood's World

Before you start shopping for styles for your wood exterior front door, you should pick a wood first. Some of the best and most commonly woods for doors include oak, mahogany, alder, and cherry. You should choose the wood that best fits your needs and budget, but don't get so hung up on appearances. Many wood types take stains well and all of them can be painted, so in most cases, you can achieve the look you're seeking. If you're after the unusual look of a more exotic wood, be aware that you will have to pay for the privilege.

Weathering the Storms

If you live in a humid climate and want a wood front door, you can prevent a lot of future issues by picking a wood that's naturally resistant to moisture, like oak or mahogany. Then make sure your door is sealed with polyurethane. Don't try to seal it after it's hung—it's difficult to get all the corners and edges properly sealed when you do that. Be sure to reseal it every few years or before that if you notice visible damage to the sealant.

Securing the Premises

Wood doors are generally pretty sturdy, but you can improve your home security by making sure to opt for strong hardware, too. After all, it doesn't matter how strong your doors are if your door's hardware can be easily broken. Choose high-quality materials and make sure they're securely fastened to your door and your door frame. This means opting for longer screws, for example, so it's not as easy to kick in your door or otherwise knock it out of the frame.

Wood Exterior Front Doors

Wood exterior doors are more attractive and stylish when compared to metal doors which tend to appear bland and industrial. However, whenever you replace or upgrade your exterior door, you will have to choose a type of wood. To make this choice easier, we will discuss some of the best kinds of woods for your front door. This will help you select a material that is able to withstand the test of time and save you money in the long-run. Specifically, we will discuss these types:

  • Mahogany
  • Oak
  • Cherry

Most home owners put in extensive time and effort  to keep their houses in prime condition. Like others, you also clean and renovate your interior on a frequent basis. Many home owners go for a fresh coat of paint to spruce up their homes every other year. However, the sun, weather, and various other elements will work against our best efforts. For instance, excessive humidity or an extremely wet spring is likely to warp or damage your front wood door, or your front door may crack due to regular wear and tear. Regardless of the reason, your front door may need to be replaced.

Mahogany

Mahogany is an excellent material for your front door. According to experts, it is the best type of wood because of its hardness and thickness which make it very durable and resilient. In addition, mahogany is a stable material that can resist decay and rot.

This makes it an ideal choice, especially for people who live in an extremely wet or humid climate. When reviewing facts about mahogany you’ll see that it is prized due to its straight and even grain that will deepen in color over time as it is exposed to oils and the elements. Lightly maintaining your door by polishing it will bring out it’s reddish sheen and let everyone see the beauty which, along with its strength, is why you purchased it.

Unfortunately, plenty of red-brown woods are often falsely labeled as mahogany by unscrupulous vendors. So, you need to be careful. This type of wood is usually produced in regions such as Brazil, Honduras, Dominican Republic, West Africa and Belize. You should know that American mahogany or mahogany that is produced in South and Latin America is often the most robust among different mahogany species. Just be sure to check with your dealer to ensure of the source of the material in your door.

Oak

Oak trees are abundant in the northern hemisphere and produce very stable wood. Oak has high levels of tannin, making it both fungus-resistant and insect-resistant. Oak has been used since the 10th century to construct Viking long ships as this wood is also more waterproof than most other wood.

The wood comes in different varieties, such as red oak, cork oak and white oak. For your front door, choose the kind of oak that is best able to withstand the specific elements in your region. For instance, white oak tends to repel water well because of its compact cell structure. On the other hand, red oak has open capillaries, so if it is not treated with suitable preservatives it will soak up moisture quite easily.

No matter which variety is chosen, however is that it should be treated with a stain or other produce to keep it waterproof and sealed well. Because oak accepts stains very well whenever you would like to recolor the front door, this material is the most appropriate option for you. You will want to use a paint which will also help preserve the wood while giving you with that extra colorful splash of uniqueness for your home.

Cherry

While the cherry tree is best known for the wonderfully tasty fruit it produces in season, the Cherry heartwood it produces is used for furniture as well as other pieces for the home. Cherry is a hardwood that can range from light red brown to rich red in color. In addition, the wood tends to darken with time, particularly when it is exposed to the sun. Cherry wood has fine grains and a smooth texture, making it easier to stain. Along with oak, cherry is one of the most widely available woods in the country.

The cherry sapwood even has blonde streaks within it which is a special feature that makes it an extremely unique and attractive material for front doors. While the wood is not as hard as others and can be bent when younger, the ability to apply carving to the door is easier than for other hardwoods. The wood takes well to sanding and provides a very smooth surface which accepts sealants and stains very well. Therefore, if you are looking to upgrade or replace your home's front door, cherry is a dependable choice.

How To Replace Door Weather Seal

A door weather seal is placed between the bottom of an exterior door to seal the gap between the door and the floor. The weather seal stops inside air from escaping into the outside, and air from outdoors coming inside, preventing uncomfortable conditions and increased energy consumption.

On average, weatherstripping lasts 3- 5 years, although some products last much longer and some much less. The type of weatherstripping selected and care of the product both affect the duration of time it’ll last. There’s also a plethora of things that may cause the weatherstripping to deteriorate or otherwise become damaged.  Pets and humans can both cause damage to weatherstripping, as can pests, the age of the material, improper care, and various weather conditions.

Deteriorating or damaged weatherstripping allows air to escape from the home and allows outside air to come inside. It also suffices as an entrance point for pests like ants, spiders, cockroaches, and bees who want nothing more than to make themselves right at home underneath your roof. Inspecting the door weather seal yearly is ideal. As you inspect the weatherstripping, look for signs of deterioration and damage, including:

  • Weather seal that’s bent or otherwise lost shape
  • Dry, brittle, or cracked weather seal
  • Losing adhesive foam, or foam that has pulled away from its fixture
  • Missing adhesive foam
  • Missing nails

If damage is noted, don’t delay learning how to replace door weather seal with the step-by-step guide below. You’re letting heat and air escape your home, costing a considerable amount on your heating costs. Outside air and pests coming indoors create a big nuisance. Temperatures inside your home are likely uncomfortable. You’re suffering without merit, since a DIY weatherstrip replacement is a simple procedure that protects your home, comfort, and peace of mind. Expert door seal replacement isn’t necessary, as any homeowner can complete the task in a matter of hours with a few tools in-hand. Gather the items you’ll need and prepare for a day of DIY weatherstripping fun.

External Wooden Front 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. read more
