When selecting the right door for your home, there are many factors that go into the decision, but typically one of the first is whether the door should be wood, fiberglass, or steel.
We feel wood is a great choice choice for your door, we believe it is important that you understand the “why.” And here are just a few of the reasons we believe you want to consider a wood door for your home.
Each Wood Door is Truly Unique
Personalization throughout the home is becoming a mainstay in design trends. The truth is, homeowners want to add their personal touch to the home because they want it to reflect their personality.
Just like each person is unique, so is each door that is made by Simpson. We don’t have a press that stamps out metal or fiberglass doors. Our wood doors are crafted from different pieces to not only ensure quality construction, but to provide a one-of-kind door. And because wood is a natural resource, no two pieces of wood are alike. This results in a beautiful, natural looking door that is uniquely your own.
We Know Wood Doors
A question we often receive from homeowners is whether or not a wood door is strong and can last many years. And because of our history and experience, we can answer them with a resounding “yes.”
We’ve been installing wood doors for many years and have never stopped being impressed with their strength and resilience. Anytime you work with a natural resource like wood, there are countless efforts that go into understanding how to best cut it, route it, shape it, glue it, and ensure that it lasts while maintaining its natural beauty.
Many Different Looks
Whether your door will be the focal point of the room, or an accent piece to your design, the styles and looks you can achieve from different woods are virtually endless.
The first item to consider is the grain of the wood. Do you like grain that is straight or wavy, tight grain or wide/open grain, or grain that is close to each other or far apart? Both the type and cut of wood will determine its grain.
Another consideration is color. Each type of wood has its own natural color and most woods can be stained to achieve a wide variety of different colors. For example, a fairly light wood can be made to look very dark simply by using a dark stain. To ensure you get the exact look you want, consider asking your authorized dealer for a sample of the wood type you are considering and do some stain tests yourself.
With so many options and wood species to choose from, it can be tough to make the right choice. You can easily explore some of the more popular wood types for doors by contacting us at ecoviewhomeimprovement.com.
