Wood entry doors are still one of the most popular choices of our customers here at Legendary Doors and Windows. The reason why they are as popular as they are is because there is an endless amount of custom design options. When you renew your front door, you know that it is the first thing people notice when they visit your house. So the look and feel of a front door is much more important than what most people think. Your entry door tells a lot about your house and your style. It also greatly effects the value of your house. Wood is a popular choice not only because of the custom design options but also as a natural material, it adds warmth and beauty to your house’s facade. It gives a friendly welcome to your guests but it discourages the intruders with its solid body. The carvings on your entry door, the color of its paint or finish can all be customized according to your needs.
One thing you need to know about wood doors is that they are not made of solid stock like they were in the old days. Well most of them anyway. For over two decades, wood entry doors are made using glued-up engineered wood cores because of the advantages it offers. For example, by using glued-up wood cores, you eliminate the wood’s tendency to twist and cup. What is used on the outer layer is a thick veneer.
Do not look at this as a downside that will decrease the value and quality of your door. On the contrary, these new designs can last a very long time if you take proper care. One of the things you can do to extend the lifespan of your front door, is to install an overhang to protect it from extreme sun or wind damage. You will also need to re-finish and paint your door every couple of years. If you think about it, all beauty comes with a price and this simple but much needed care for your door will not only make it last a long time but it will also give your house a renovated look periodically.
