If the existing door frame is damaged, or you are planning to buy a plastic or fibreglass door that cannot be cut to size, you will need to get a door set, comprising a frame and matching door. This will obviously cost more than just a door leaf, but at least you know it will definitely fit. Not every room has to have a generic looking door that just serves the opening and closing purpose. Some doors can give you the ability to experiment with space and furniture.
Wooden doors can easily be customized using a variety of decorative touches. doors with sidelights and handle bars look unique and can add to the beauty of the entrance door. There are several varieties of knobs, handles and knockers available in different materials and designs. They may be used to enhance the functionality and look of the external door.
Unless you have ordered a pre-primed door, you will have to apply a stain-blocking primer – ideally two coats – to provide a base for the rest of your paint work. Pay special attention to the top and bottom of the door, which are particularly vulnerable to water penetration. Apply primer equally all over on both sides, not forgetting the cut-out holes for hardware. This will seal the timber and keep incoming moisture to a minimum, preventing swelling (which can make the door stick on the frame). Conversely, it will also help stop the door from drying out and shrinking in hot weather.
