Solid Doors - What is a Solid Front Door?

A bit of a thorny issue, solid doors or solid timber doors, there is a difference in the terminology.

Lots of doors are solid but are made of a laminated core, nothing wrong with this and a strong argument for the stability of such a door.

Solid wooden doors are more likely to be just that, solid individual sections cut from a tree and machined before being put together as a truly solid door. (Product shown is the Bird door)

Great Doors with Stunning Styles

 

Interior Doors or Exterior Doors, Not Only Do We Do It But We Do It Better!

There are hundreds of doors to choose from but most if not all interior doors are veneered on a solid core rather than actual solid wood interior doors, this offers a very stable construction and has done for a great number of years.

There is a similar approach taken with exterior doors but the door cores are generally a laminated solid core which in effect can be more stable than a single section of wood, regardless of which construction method has been employed you must make sure the decoration is to a very high standard to avoid water ingress and warping.
