Unlike the slab doors that were widely used, a pre-hung door can either have a hollow core or solid core. The most popular choice for these doors is molded hardwood. While both types offer durability and security, solid-core doors offer greater sound-proofing properties. While shopping for prefinished wood doors, make sure to look for durable stains and clear finishes, such as polyurethane. Also pay attention to the detailing on the wood, the more intricate carving and molding on the door, the better the quality.
Interestingly, most varieties were created keeping in mind that in case a firm grip is lacking, then the doorknob could be operated using two hands. The designs are proof of the consideration and the popular operating lever designs available today replicate the antique varieties. Its identification is an important consideration whether the add-on is for commercial buildings or for a household. The brass, stone, and wooden doorknobs add a touch of class to any ordinary door. The imitations today are also beneficial on doors whose stile widths are narrow. Usually, such doors are observed to have reduced back-set and subsequently insufficient space for the regular counterparts. The designs are many and quite a few are best suited as fittings on narrow doors.
If you have your kitchen decorated in a rustic style, then a wooden pantry door can be the best choice. You can add a simple plain door with the veneer of a color that matches the kitchen cabinets. Those having a designer frame or border and raised up appearance look pretty. Have a single swing or a double door with handles to give it an armoire effect.
Installing a pre-hung door is not as easy as it may seem. Weather proofing, leveling, and insulation are some of the core concerns that affect the overall look of the door. That said, unless you are an expert, it is recommended that you take the help of a professional or ask the local home center for a referral while installing the pre-hung door.
