Unlike the slab doors that were widely used, a pre-hung door can either have a hollow core or solid core. The most popular choice for these doors is molded hardwood. While both types offer durability and security, solid-core doors offer greater sound-proofing properties. While shopping for prefinished wood doors, make sure to look for durable stains and clear finishes, such as polyurethane. Also pay attention to the detailing on the wood, the more intricate carving and molding on the door, the better the quality.
The door frame is generally made of hardwood coupled with UPVC (Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) which makes the door frame rank high on durability. The hardwood composition is meant for the outer door frame, whereas for the inner door frame, the material that is employed is called galvanized steel. The composite door thermal efficiency is enhanced due to the polyurethane foam consistency and the use of Glass Resistant Plastic. GRP has the capacity to retain its color and enhances the appearance of the door, thereby giving a grainy wood-like effect. It has a highly resistant fiberglass available in variegated colors, together with galvanized steel that aids the door in sustaining the weather conditions preventing it from warping, expanding or contracting. Thus, the insulation that the door provides is par excellence. Due to the chlorofluorocarbon content in the door composition, the door keeps the interiors of the house warm during winters and pleasant during summers.
It is the core material that provides rigidity, fills the space between the two door frames, and also significantly reduces druminess. Basically, pre-hung doors are classified into three types on the basis of their core material.
Keep in mind that medium shades might not be ideal for your front door. Traditionally, people choose either light colors, like whites, cream, taupe, tan, etc., or dark colors. Contrasting the exteriors from the color of the door is a good idea. It automatically highlights the door, making it more welcoming.
