How to Install House Doors

Passive house doors

Passive house doors are thick, full of seals, latches, and locks that are designed to seal every tiny crack. These doors can help to reduce energy costs by preventing heat and air leaks. However, the amount of energy you save will depend on your door and the type of seal you choose. In general, doors that combine high insulation R-values with low U-values should result in significant energy savings.

Passive house doors are not just meant for the back yard; they are also great for front entry. Besides being energy efficient, passive house doors are also stylish and well balanced. In addition, passive house doors have locks and latches that compress to add security. They also tend to be thicker than standard doors, so they will last for many years.

Wooden doors

When shopping for a new wood door, there are several factors to consider. First of all, you should select a wood that has high durability and will last for many years. You also want one that will save energy, be easy to maintain, and have a budget-friendly price. In the market, you will find different types of wood, so you can choose the one that matches your needs and tastes.

Another benefit of wooden doors is that they are very durable and can be customized. Different types of wood can be used for them, including bamboo, teak, and knotted pine. Additionally, these doors are good at reducing sound. Solid wood doors can also fit any size frame. Another reason to choose a wooden door is that it is more environmentally friendly.

Bi-fold doors

Bi-fold doors are a great way to connect different rooms of your house. They feature multiple locking points and maximise the natural light in the room. They are also great for houses with small interior spaces because they take up less space than conventional sliding and french doors. Typically made of wood or aluminium, bi-fold doors can be customized to meet most requirements.

Bi-fold doors have two panels that fold inwards like an accordion. These doors can be used to create huge openings that house doors can be tucked away to allow more access and storage. These doors are often more expensive than traditional doors but are well worth the cost.

Pre-hung doors

Pre-hung house doors are installed using split-jamb technology. The main jamb is installed first, then the split jamb is slid over the jamb. The jambs are often furnished with casings. Before installing a prehung door, the doorway should be level. If the side of the hinge is lower than the floor, shims can be placed on the floor to bring the door level. Finish nails can be used to secure the shims.

Pre-hung house doors are available with a variety of styles. Some are hinge-hung, while others are slab doors. They are usually delivered as interior prehung door units and installed. Slab doors can be installed in existing frames and are available in wood, composite, fiberglass, metal, and more.
