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

Material: Wood/Veneer — Paint-Grade

What It Is:
Built the same as finish-grade wood/veneer doors, this version is faced with a less attractive veneer because it’s meant to be painted. This keeps the cost down, but you lose the natural wood look.

The Look:
Less natural than a finished wood door, but a good option if you like color.

Durability:
Moderate (paint holds up better than finish, but the wood can still degrade with exposure to the elements).

Pros:
Less expensive than finished wood doors; available in a variety of styles; paint creates a more durable surface.

Cons:
Lacks the natural charm and grain of wood; a painted door isn’t always the best match for a log home.

Cost:
$200 to $600
