Buying Tips For Solid Wood Doors
Solid wood doors are great for sound dampening, insulating properties, damage resistance and value to potential buyers. There are several things to consider before buying solid wood doors. Among the most important of these issues are the price of the door, the function of the door, and how much care you are willing to put into the door. All these things will affect the type of door that should be chosen to buy and install. A solid wood door can be made up of one solid piece of wood, from stiles which are vertical panels of wood, or from rails which are horizontal pieces of wood. Since solid wood doors are made from wood, they tend to shrink and swell throughout the year. Making a door with stiles and rails reinforces the wood and helps to prevent the warping, swelling, and shrinkage.
The doors can get very expensive depending on what type of wood is used to make the door. For instance, solid hardwood is among the most expensive kinds of wooden doors. Solid wood doors are beautiful and are easily customizable with carvings or glass. It should be noted that adding a glass panel to the door increases the price.
