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

Material: Wood/Veneer — Finish-Grade

What It Is: 
This is a less-expensive alternative to the solid wood door. The finish-grade versions of these doors look like wood, but they actually have a wood and insulation framework that’s wrapped with a wood veneer exterior.

The Look: 
Similar to that of a solid wood door, but limited to the stock styles offered by door manufacturers.

Durability:
Low (the exterior may need to be refinished every two to three years, especially if exposed to the elements).

Pros:
Less expensive than solid wood; readily available at home centers; well-insulated.

Cons:
Typically only available in stock options, though some customization is available; can expand and contract with changes in weather; not as durable as other options.

Cost:
$200 to $1,000
