After considering material it is a wise choice to move onto colour selection. This part of the process may not be required for wooden alternatives, although wood finishes may need to be considered for future applications. Composite and other door types are available in a huge range of colours. Some of these can be used to create real statements or there are more understated alternatives as well.
Time invested in each of these elements will make sure that your end selection is the best-available alternative. New front doors are an investment for your home and one that should last many years. Having the above information to hand will lead you to make an educated decision and one that you will be confident making.
Timber, primarily pine, oak and hemlock, is the most popular natural material used in the manufacture of external doors. Solid wood doesn’t stand up very well to our British weather, so nearly all doors are now made from engineered timber – tiny sections of wood bound together with adhesive. The resulting multi-layered material is extremely robust, and a good deal more stable than natural timber. The panels are then glued and fixed together with dowels – tiny wooden pegs – or stronger, but more expensive mortise and tenon joints.
