A great option to be considered while working on the design of main doors is pilaster. Using pilaster for trim is sure to give a grand touch to the entrance. Opt for the fluted pilaster or paneled pilaster which will help in beautifying your door frame as never before. You can have it wide or keep it narrow, depending upon size and design of the door. Making the pilasters more attractive is not a tough task with fan inserts or other designer blocks. These can be added to the center of top horizontal trim line and even at each corner of trim molding. This is one of the most visually appealing exterior trims which plays up the beauty of the main door of your house.
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.
There are many manufactures selling quality composite front doors. Based on the composite front door reviews, Feather River and Jeld Wen are two popular brands that offer excellent quality front doors. The doors are available in a huge variety of colors, and thus you have the choice to choose doors that match your exterior paint colors. All these doors give a wooden door look, and are also capable of giving both classy and funky look to the home decor. Some doors come with fiber glass design at the center that gives a classy finish. Both these brands have safe lock systems that prevent forced entry and intrusion. The Feather River doors come with many excellent features like use of polyurethane foam core for energy-efficient insulation, composite threshold and weather strip to prevent water infiltration. There are many Feather River doors that come with oak or wood finish to give the classy look. Jeld Wen doors can be painted as per your choice of color, but come with limited period of warranty of only 5 years. Apart from these brands, some manufactures ship doors from countries, where the raw materials that are required are cheap. And these doors are available at local stores at affordable prices.
Frosted exterior doors, which have the company name or logo on it, have been very commonly used in offices. If you want to add a personal touch to the interiors of your house, get one of these and have your name or surname etched on it! However, before installation, see to it that the glass used is tempered and safe enough to be used for an entry door. Or, a safer option is to install a lettered door for your child's room with his name on it.
