The advantages of solid timber doors

If you’re renovating your home or even building a new one from scratch, then at some point you’ll will probably have to think about the external doors. There are many sizes, shapes and style of doors but in most homes.

The types of materials you choose when manufacturing your new door will determine the quality and the cost of your renovation. For example, glass doors can be expensive but do offer increased light whilst blocking out sound. Hollow doors are cheap and light but lose out on safety and sound prevention.

Why choose solid timber doors?

The good thing about timber is that it is secure and can last for several years. Wood is a beautiful natural material that adds warmth to any home. However, it is also easy to paint and produces a great finish that’s great for working with any colour scheme.

Solid timber is very effective at insulating against heat loss and acts as a safety barrier. Solid timber is also an effective insulator against noise, meaning if you are looking for a little bit of privacy, this is again the natural choice.

Wood is an affordable, renewable and sustainable material that is perfect for making doors, window frames and other structural parts of the home. So if it is time to replace your doors, why not invest in some that will last a lifetime?

The Sash Window Workshop can manufacture external timber doors in a range of different styles to suit your requirements.
