Open Sesame – Door Materials
Put your log home’s best face forward with the perfect front door.
by: Wyatt Myers

Material: Solid Wood

What It Is: 
The crown jewel of front doors, these are the most expensive and typically need to be custom-made by millwork or woodworking shops.

The Look: 
Natural, and perhaps the best fit for a log home. Can be rustic or elegant, intricate or simple.

Durability:
Low (the exterior may need to be refinished every 2 to 3 years, especially if exposed to the elements)

Pros:
Custom, natural look that’s difficult to duplicate; well-suited to log homes

Cons: 
Expensive; not a good insulator compared to other options; may take a few weeks to a few months to build; can bow, warp, and expand or contract with the weather

Cost:
$600 to $4,000
