Top 3 Shopping Tipswood exterior front doors

Wood exterior front doors are a popular choice for understandable reasons. They're sturdy, good-looking, and can last for years with proper care. However, there are some things you need to know before you buy a wood front door. For example, find out what woods are best and how you can protect them from weather damage. Also, learn what you need to do to make these strong doors even more secure.

1Wood'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.

2Weathering 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.

3Securing 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.
