Save the trees and let engineered doors welcome you home
There is no denying the timeless charm and aesthetic beauty of a solid wood door, but they come at a price and tend to be at the mercy of moisture, humidity and temperature changes, causing them to warp.
Engineered core doors are taking the building industry by storm and are in high demand as an elegant, durable and affordable option. They are manufactured with a cross configuration of the grains - i.e. the composite internal layers run in different directions held in place by powerfully formulated adhesives. This makes engineered doors stronger and sturdier - offering better stability than their solid wood counterparts. They are also more environmentally friendly than solid wood doors.
Engineered doors really come into their own when installed as patio doors as they are able to withstand constant exposure to the elements without any warping and they require little maintenance.
