Wooden doors were the top most choice for most house owners as it added a regal feel to their home. These doors make a house look attractive. The wood grain has a lustrous shine that makes it stand out. You will need to carefully maintain the luster of the door by painting and varnishing the door regularly. However, these doors come with an expiry date. Depending on the type of wood used, these doors last for just about 25 to 35 years. They suffer from the general wear and tear and will no longer be as strong as they were earlier. They lose their sheen and tend to swell, bow, crack and warp. Due to the cracks and swelling, wooden doors are no longer able to provide your home with the much-needed insulation. These doors are very costly and pose a high risk of break-ins.
It is rather difficult to have an objective view of something you see every day. That's why you need to take a picture of the front door. The picture preferably, should be 4x6 inches. Cut out the front door from the picture, and place paint chips from the hardware store behind the photo. This will enable you to see how the facade of your home will look in various colors.
Entry doors have to be tested and certified for energy efficiency, way before you make a purchase. The doors ought to have tighter-fitting frames, energy-efficient cores, and double- or triple-insulated glass panels to reduce heat transfer in case of sidelights.
