Wooden doors don't have to be extremely heavy or bulky to operate. Although they are very solid, today's wooden doors have a more streamlined appearance than ever to make them very easy to open and close. Some are even made from reclaimed wood, making them an environmentally friendly choice to consider. These doors are typically thick enough to deter break-ins, and can be outfitted with high quality locks that will help keep your family safe and secure once they are in place.
Average wooden door costs vary based upon the species of wood used to make the door, its size, and type of special features. Oak doors are attractive and sturdy, but can cost more than ones made from maple, pine or cherry. Doors with raised panels and ornate trim tend to cost more than ones that have a very basic appearance. Standard-sized doors can easily be purchased at affordable prices, but unusual-sized openings may require a door to be custom made to fit it, which would increase the overall cost accordingly.

Q. How do I ensure my wooden door is safe?
A. If youíre concerned about security, when choosing a wooden door try to opt for one with solid wood. This will likely drive up the price compared to a cheap semi hollow door, but itís hard to put a price on safety. When installing the door, you can also make sure it swings outward rather than inward. Additionally, install a deadbolt as these are particularly tough against intruders. Lastly, make sure to reinforce your entryway with a cylinder guard, and ensure your hinges arenít exposed.
Q. Should I be concerned about a wooden door swelling when exposed to extreme heat or cold?
A. Some minor swelling is to be expected; however, it should not be enough to affect the way your door operates. If you do notice your door sticking, simply spray some lubricant on your hinges and tighten them if needed.
