Entry doors are the main doors and are a bit more heavy-duty for added security. These doors can be styled and colored to match the exterior décor of any house. Storm doors are installed outside the entry door and are typically composed of a combination of glass, aluminum, and steel. These doors protect the house and entry door from harsh weather.
Sizes can range from the standard which is 6 foot 8 inches or 8 feet tall. There are other sizes available with custom exterior doors. Since there are so many variations of wooden doors, such as double entryway and sidelight doors, rustic designs and sculptured doors, the width can vary as well. Usually this will range from 48 inches wide to 120 inches wide. Thickness will vary from 1 38 inches to 1 34 inches to 2 14 inches although you can have your own specifications for this aspect too. When choosing an entry door, custom exterior doors designed by the manufacturer are one choice you will have or you can submit your own ideas about the way you want your door to look and let the designers work for you.
Mahogany has a straight grain that is virtually free of knots. The color varies from a light to a dark brown with red highlights. This type of wood holds up well to the outside elements and is often used on boats. Red Oak is another option for wooden doors and is a fine choice. The grain patterns on red oak vary and the wood will accept most stains. The grain will pick up the stain and creates a wonderful look for an entry door. The color can vary from light to golden combined with a darker grain.
