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.
A loud color with high energy, an orange-colored door looks good in both traditional and contemporary houses. Frame it with a neutral color to reduce its intensity.
When it comes to security and durability, you will agree there is no match for a steel door. Steel doors will definitely not warp and crack like wood or fiberglass, thus making them an ideal choice for exterior doors. Foam or corkboard is used to fill the hollow between the two frames that make the door. The surface of the door is either embossed to attain a wood-grain pattern, or is simply fitted with a laminated-wood veneer.
Entry doors have to be tested and certified for energy efficiency, way before you make a purchase. The doors ought to have tighter-fitting frames, energy-efficient cores, and double- or triple-insulated glass panels to reduce heat transfer in case of sidelights.
