Today, more than ever, homeowners have a wide choice of different types of doors for both interior and exterior use. When it comes to selection, choosing wooden doors offers some amazing additional benefits for those just selecting this construction option because of the overall look.
The rich look of natural wooden doors is still the primary reason that people choose these doors for their front and back entrances. They are also the reason that custom home builders and many homeowners planning renovation choose this option over vinyl, metal or other door material options.
To get a better idea of just how beneficial wooden doors can be for the interior and exterior of your home, consider all the benefits of wood and you will discover all the hidden advantages.
High Insulating Factor
New engineering processes in all types of wooden doors, including for the exterior or even for garage doors, ensures that wood has a very high insulating factor. This high “R” factor is only possible because the doors are designed to fit correctly into frames and actually provide a tight seal, eliminating air leaks.
Additionally, new design in the interior of the door also provides for higher insulating values. As a natural product that can be sealed to eliminate moisture issues from causing damage, top-quality wooden doors will naturally expand and contract slightly with temperature changes, eliminating the warping, cracking and splitting common with other types of materials that leads to lower insulation values.
Adds Curb Appeal for a Lifetime
With just a bit of maintenance and the occasional need to stain and seal the doors, they will last a lifetime. This makes them a great investment and one that will continue to provide curb appeal for the life for the life of the home.
The new types of wooden doors and the new sealers and stains are very easy to care for, and they are definitely an eye-catching addition to any home. Discerning buyers will also recognize their value, so if you are planning to move, they can help to create that welcoming, luxurious look to help your home to move quickly in any market.
Most people won’t change the color of stain of their exterior or interior wooden doors, but if you need to or want a change it is not that difficult of a task. Staining the doors is not a complicated process, and you have the option to go lighter or darker, with some basic color considerations in mind.
