New interior doors are a great way to transform your rooms without expensive remodeling. Let our experts show you all the possibilities for your budget. Plus, we can help you with machining and matching the new door so it will fit the old jamb with a minimum of effort.
New Doors, New Frames/Jambs
We can prehang virtually any door, in any frame to your specifications, including:
- Non-standard door sizes
- Non-standard jamb/frame/wall thicknesses
- Mixed units (i.e. oak door in a paint grade frame)
- Special design doors
- Double units, sidelites, door lights, transoms
- Dutch door and other special door units
- Think about using a full or half louvre style door in places to get better air circulation or to minimize hot or cool spots. For example, use one on a utility room door to vent heat from your furnace or washer/dryer into the house more smoothly.
- When switching doors, think about also switching the way the new door swings. In some cases, a different swing direction may work better for you based on how you use the room, furniture placement and so on.
- A conventional swing door will provide the widest access to any door opening. Consider switching old style bypass or bi-fold doors to gain access to your whole closet.
- Something as simple as changing the style of a door can dramatically freshen up a room or entire home.
- Use special purpose doors like a frosted glass door in an area where you want some element of privacy with the capability to allow light into the room from adjacent areas.
- Try a “special” frosted doors for pantries, laundry areas, wine storage and more. They add special appeal to those rooms while providing some privacy and “hiding the mess” features.
Moulding can be milled from virtually any wood type. However, to be more economical and for quicker availability, moulding is generally only readily available in stock in red oak, solid pine, medium density fiberboard (MDF, a very dense particle board), and finger joint pine that has been primed. MDF is a good option due to its low cost and, since it is man-made, there is no risk of warping twisting or splitting.
Solid mouldings are most commonly available in pine but can be ordered in many hardwoods (some of the solid hardwood moldings may be a veneer face). In order to get the best possible finish, it is recommended that you sand first with 220 grit sandpaper. If staining, we recommend after sanding to apply a prestain conditioner or a sanding sealer; this will prevent the wood from absorbing too much stain too fast which leads to the grain being raised or the wood taking the stain in blotches. Next, apply a clear sealer; this will help your molding last for years to come. Remember to apply as directed, generally three coats are best. Each succeeding coat adds protection and depth to the appearance.
Finger joint pine is a good balance of low cost, widespread availability in different patterns, an stability. Most finger joint molding is now primed. Therefore, all you need to do is paint with your choice of paint – two coats is best. Similarly, MDF comes with a primer coat already on it, so all you have to do to finish your project is apply a paint of your choosing. Please note: MDF doesn't handle getting wet very well, so it is not recommended for kitchens or bathrooms.
