When we talk of door dimensions, it is imperative that you measure the size of the existing door as well as that of the pre-hung door you plan to buy. Do make it a point to measure the front door opening end to end, including the frame area, or else you will end up reducing the actual entrance area. Ideally, the pre-hung unit should be an inch smaller in terms of height and width, compared to the opening itself.
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.
Another addition to the composite door profile is its cost. The cost of composite doors coupled with the installation cost would range approximately between $1000 to $2500. I am sure that after reading through the specifications mentioned in this article, you may not like to budge from the idea of installing it for your very own haven!
Composite doors are made from synthetic material that has the look and feel of a wooden door. These doors are made from different materials molded together that helps make them strong and durable. The doors have reinforced skin that gives them the look of grain finish. The skin also provides strength to the door and it cannot be opened by force or strong kicks. Composite doors do not need painting or varnishing as they do not fade with time. The core of these doors is filled with foam that helps them provide 6 times better insulation than wooden doors. Also, these doors do not twist, warp, crack or swell like wooden doors do. All these attractive and useful features are available at a much affordable price than the expensive wooden doors. They prove to be good entry doors, back doors and front doors for homes.
