Engineered Entrance Doors

Doors, redefined.

So you are ready to upgrade your home’s entrance and you are struggling to decide whether you should opt for a solid wood door or perhaps move towards an engineered option? Here is a guide to help give you all the information you need to make an informed decision on what engineered doors are, and why they might be the best option for you and your home.

What are Engineered Doors?

Engineered doors are generally assembled from the latest modern materials and formed into ‘engineered’ doors. They are created to emulate the richness and depth of real timber but without the problems traditionally associated with wooden doors. A solid wooden door is made up of separate intersecting wooden components all joined or glued together, which is where potential problems can arise over the long term.

What are Engineered Doors

Doors Built to Last

An engineered door can be said to be the modern day approach to door construction. Where solid wooden doors can be a beautiful addition to your home, they come with their downsides. They can be affected by changes in temperature and humidity which could lead a solid door to warp, bow and eventually change shape and size and develop splits and gaps. Whereas an engineered door is built to last and will be an equally beautiful addition to your home and is less affected by the change in weather or temperature.

Maintenance Free Doors

Adding an engineered door into your home will definitely be something you won’t regret, with no sanding, painting or staining required. They are also incredibly durable compared to a solid wood door, as the wood can be prone to splitting along the grain. This is why technologically advanced, engineered doors can be the preferred solution.

Helping to Keep your Rooms Insulated

Another benefit to adding an engineered door to your home is that they provide better thermal insulation than the more traditional solid wooden doors. They help keep your home warm in winter and then in the summer they will help keep your home cool.
