Installing a pre-hung door is not as easy as it may seem. Weather proofing, leveling, and insulation are some of the core concerns that affect the overall look of the door. That said, unless you are an expert, it is recommended that you take the help of a professional or ask the local home center for a referral while installing the pre-hung door.
Composite doors benefit your pocket as well. They are available in a price range of 350 to 700, inclusive of the installation costs. If you are thinking on the lines of long term investment, this door frame could be the ideal choice. It is highly durable with the outer frame made of hardwood and the inner frame consisting of galvanized steel. The galvanized steel is resistant to weather changes. Coupled with GRP (Glass Resistant Plastic), it serves to be a shield for conditions such as warping and dents.
It's not always the price that matters, but there are other factors as well that help in deciding which door to use. The quality, durability and maintenance factors all come into play when deciding a door. Let us have a look at both these doors and get a better idea about composite doors and wooden doors.
Wooden doors were the top most choice for most house owners as it added a regal feel to their home. These doors make a house look attractive. The wood grain has a lustrous shine that makes it stand out. You will need to carefully maintain the luster of the door by painting and varnishing the door regularly. However, these doors come with an expiry date. Depending on the type of wood used, these doors last for just about 25 to 35 years. They suffer from the general wear and tear and will no longer be as strong as they were earlier. They lose their sheen and tend to swell, bow, crack and warp. Due to the cracks and swelling, wooden doors are no longer able to provide your home with the much-needed insulation. These doors are very costly and pose a high risk of break-ins.
