What Makes Wood Doors Superior

Published: May 25, 2022



When it comes to selecting the right door for your home there are several factors that will go into this decision but first and foremost is what material will your door be made of wood, steel or fiberglass.

We believe that solid hardwood is the best option when it comes to your new doors, and we think it is important to tell you why we feel this way. Here are a few reasons why we think you won’t want to choose anything other than beautiful hardwood for your new door.

Every Wood Door is Unique

Personalizing your home's aesthetics has become a big part in recent design trends, because every homeowner wants their home to reflect their personality and their tastes. Just like no two people are alike, no two pieces of wood are the same making every door we build truly unique. Since each piece of wood used in the construction of a door is different, this creates a truly unique natural looking door that is unique to you and your home.

Many Different Styles

Whether your door will be an accent piece to the design of the room, focal point of that room or purely functional the many styles and hardwood options provide endless possibilities. When it comes to choosing wooden doors the first thing to consider should be wood type as every hardwood is different from the next. Each wood we offer has a different grain pattern that can make a dramatic difference in the appearance of the door and space it is in. If you are planning on staining the door you may want a more distinct grain and color like Teak, Mahogany or an Oak. If you are going to paint your new door you may want to choose Poplar if it is an interior door, if you are choosing an exterior door you will want a hardwood that will naturally withstand the exterior elements like a Cedar or Mahogany.

With so many wood choices and door styles to choose from it can be difficult to make a decision. You can explore all the options we have to offer and see real time rendering of your choices using Estate Millwork’s state of the art door designer.
