Top 3 Shopping Tipswood front entry doors

When it comes to your home's exterior doors, it's hard to beat wood front entry doors for looks, durability, and quality. With proper care, they can last a long time. Before you start looking, find out what you need to know about care. In addition, learn the difference between solid doors and solid core, as well as one benefit of wood front entry doors you might not have considered.

Common Core

If you're buying a wood door for an entry, you should always buy a solid wood door. Solid core doors,which are made of composite wood, are strictly for interior use. For exterior use, you want solid doors, which are made of slabs of wood or larger pieces of wood fitted together. If you find a solid wood door that's made from one large slab, then it's likely vintage. It became harder to log the massive timber for the large slabs, so manufacturers pivoted to making doors from pieces. They're still just as good as the older doors, though.

The Local Custom

Most people know that wood doors are attractive and add style to homes, but you might not think about other benefits. For example, one big draw of wood front entry doors is that they can be customized in so many different ways. They can be cut, for example, to fit entry spaces that are unusual shapes or sizes. That gives them a leg up on doors made from fiberglass or metal, for example. So if you've got a home with non-standard door frames, wood is likely your best bet.

Preventive Care

Wood front entry doors do require more upkeep than doors made of say, metal. However, it's really not as involved as it might sound. First of all, make sure to prepare your door before it's installed, by having it treated with a polyurethane sealant. That can help stave off a lot of issues, because the sealant prevents the wood from absorbing moisture. And don't be tempted to try sealing it after it's installed—it's far too easy that way to miss spots. Finally, you will need to reseal the door every few years.

What You Need to Know Before Buying Wood Front Entry Doors

  • Solid wood
  • Wood veneers
  • Engineered wood cores
