What Buyer’s Need to Know About Inside Composite 32 x 82 Doors

Composite doors are a popular option for interior spaces. They tend to be less expensive than wood and are highly durable. Additionally, you can typically paint the doors any color you’d like, allowing you to blend them in with your current color scheme. Further, they are available in a range of styles, giving you the ability to choose a look that matches your preferences or the era and design of your home.

If you are looking for a 32 x 82 inside composite door, you’ve likely discovered that those dimensions are not a standard size. However, it is possible that a more common option, like a 30 x 80 interior door will work, depending on whether your initial measurements are based on a rough opening or an existing door.

Sizing

When you are measuring for pre-hung doors, you are typically basing your measurements on the rough opening. If your rough opening is 32 x 82, the actual size of your door will likely be 30 x 80, one of the standard sizes for interior composite doors.

The additional two inches of height and width would be taken up by the jamb and frame, allowing the entire pre-hung unit to properly fill your rough opening. However, if you need the actual inside composite door to be 32 x 82 inches, then you will likely need a custom door. This is a non-standard size, so it isn’t as likely to be mass manufactured.

Material

By definition, a composite door involves multiple elements being combined to create the material. The elements are secured and bonded using glues and a high amount of pressure, creating a strong and durable final product that can typically be molded into a specific shape. PVC, foam, wood, and glass reinforced plastics are common elements used in composite doors.

Usually, a foam core is wrapped in multiple frames, giving you the insulating benefits of the foam and the strength and durability of the outer materials. The skin is typically glass reinforced plastic, which resists dents, warping and cracking and can be cast to mimic wood grain or other textures.

Style

Inside composite doors can be found in nearly any style, allowing you to choose an option that blends in with the overall aesthetic or your home. Since the skin and underlying materials of the door can be molded or shaped, finding flush or paneled options is typically easy. A smooth door surface is usually considered minimalist or contemporary but also works well in industrial spaces.

Raised panels create a more traditional look while some simpler designs, like recessed panels reminiscent of shaker-style cabinets or barn door X and Z patterns, can be appropriate in Craftsman or farmhouse interiors. You can also alter the complete look of your inside composite 32 x 82 doors with your hardware selection, giving you additional options for quick customizations.
