A Front Entry Door Proving Good Things Come In Threes

 

We made this door for people who want something timeless (picture shown in Afromosia wood). If your taste trends toward traditional, it’s the door for you. It features three solid wood panels separated by solid wood planks, and planks surrounding the panels. Sometimes it’s best to keep things simple, so that the quality of the materials can shine through. That’s what we did with this door design.  

 

Our doors are made from premium materials from start to finish. Choose from twenty different wood species, ranging from traditional (like European Beech) to exotic (like Padauk). Our exterior doors come with an exclusive white oak threshold and 100% silicone Swiss door sweep, a combination that prevents water damage to the jamb. And we offer the door jamb in the same wood species as the door, for a luxe final look. Because we believe a thing that’s worth doing is worth doing right.

 

The materials are only half the equation. The other half is who makes the doors. Skilled artisans cut, assemble, and finish our doors by hand. So our doors have an artisanal quality that’s hard to replicate in a mass-produced world. Our artisans use traditional techniques like mortise and tenon joinery, for a door that’s just as strong as it is beautiful. You won’t find that commitment to quality at the big box stores or other online retailers.

 

We think this door is ideal for traditional, modern, Scandinavian, or transitional décor styles. But you can’t go wrong with a door this classic—it will work with almost any home style. It works great as a side door, or door to the backyard—but we love it as a front door most of all.  

 

Skilled artisans make all our doors by hand onsite in Gig Harbor, a small seaport town on the Puget Sound in Washington State.

 

Wood Species

RealCraft offers twenty different wood species, ranging from traditional to exotic.

 

One of the reasons we love real wood so much is that it carries the character of its natural habitat. Wood species respond differently to humidity and temperature conditions. If you aren't sure which wood species to pick, call us at 1-800-694-5977.

 

If you want to see our wood in person before making a selection, you can order samples here. Check out our wood buying guide here.

 

Glass Options

When selecting a glass option for this door, keep in mind how private the space is. Choose the standard clear glass for full transparency or the etched option for a little more privacy.

 

We also offer custom glass options upon request.

 

Hinge Style & Placement

Our standard entry hinges are 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" ball-bearing hinges available in:

  • Standard Steel with multiple finish options
  • Solid Brass
  • Pure Stainless Steel

If your door will be an outswing door--especially in coastal areas--we recommend stainless steel or brass hinges to prevent corrosion.

 

We offer American or European hinge placement of the ball bearing hinges. American-style hinge placement spaces out the hinges evenly. The European-style puts two hinges high on the door and one at the bottom. We recommend European style hinge placement, it is the strongest option. This placement allows the two upper hinges to better bear the load of the door, thus preventing sag over time.

 

Our concealed hinges come in pairs. They are available in multiple finishes and are a top-of-the-line, completely concealed hinge system with maintenance-free slide bearings. Choose this door hinge for a sleek, upscale finish.

 

Door Handing & Swing Direction

To determine door handing: Stand with your back to the jamb to be hinged. Then let your arm be the door and note whether the door swings to your right or your left. If it swings to your left, it is a left-handed door. If it swings to your right, it is a right-handed door.

 

To determine “inswing” or “outswing”: First, stand outside your house. Then, when your door opens does it open into the house? Then it is an inswing door. Does it open out from the house? Then it is an outswing door. 

 

Note: Inswing doors are more typical for entry doors.

 

Pre-Hung Door Jambs

Door jambs are made of the same wood as the door for a cohesive look no matter what wood you choose.

 

Jamb measurements: Door width plus 2 3/8" (plus another 1/2" with concealed hinges)

Minimum rough opening: Door width plus 2 3/4" (plus another 1/2" with concealed hinges)

 

Pre-Hung Door Threshold & Sweep

Our exclusive white oak threshold offers superior water protection and wear resistance. We use a pure silicone, adjustable Swiss weather sweep set into the bottom of the door. Kerfed weatherstripping is standard. If you need an ADA threshold, call us. 

 

Questions?

For frequently asked questions about choosing a door and hardware see our FAQ page. And feel free to reach out any time to speak to a qualified consultant by calling 1-800-694-5977.

Ordering a pre-hung door means the door jamb is included. Therefore measurements for pre-hung doors should take into account the overall Unit Measurements and the Minimum Rough Opening where it will be installed. 

 

Calculating Unit Measurements for pre-hung doors:

  • To calculate the Unit Width: Add 2 3/8” to the door's width (add another 1/2" if concealed hinges were selected).
  • To calculate the Unit Height: Add 2 5/8” to the door's height (add another 1/2" if concealed hinges were selected).

So the Unit Measurements for a pre-hung 32" x 80" door with standard hinges would be 34 3/8” x 82 5/8”.

 

Calculating Minimum Rough Opening for pre-hung doors:

  • To calculate the Minimum Rough Opening Width: Add 2 3/4" to the door's width (add another 1/2" if concealed hinges were selected).
  • To calculate the Minimum Rough Opening Height: Add 2 3/4" to the door's height (add another 1/2" if concealed hinges were selected).

So a pre-hung 32" x 80" door with standard hinges will need a Minimum Rough Opening of 34 3/4" x 82 3/4".

We highly recommend adding a clear finish to your door to protect it and make sure that it is eligible to be covered by our warranty. A clear finish not only protects your door, it also enhances its beauty and brings out the color and detail of the grain. 

 

We offer the following finish options:

  • White Primer: Added to Paint Grade Hardwood. For this option, we use only high-quality hardwoods like European Beech or Red Grandis. These species provide a smooth surface for paint.
  • Clear Satin Eurofinish by Osmo: A high-end hand-rubbed hardwax oil that conditions, seals, and finishes the wood.
  • Oil Stain EuroFinish by Osmo: A high-end hand-rubbed hardwax oil that stains, seals, and finishes the wood.
