Choosing the Perfect Wood for Your New Exterior Door

Your entrance door is more than just an entry point – it’s a statement of style and durability. When it comes to selecting the ideal wood for your new door, several factors come into play. Let’s delve into them together, and we’ll guide you with expert advice on choosing the type of wood that best suits you and your property if you’re unsure.

Aesthetics: Do you prefer the natural allure of wood or the versatility of a painted finish? Durability: Will your door be shielded from the elements or directly exposed? Budget and Maintenance: Balancing cost-effectiveness with long-term upkeep.


A versatile hardwood renowned for its strength and resilience. With characteristics akin to Mahogany, Sapele offers an affordable yet robust option for your solid wood door needs. Its adaptable nature allows for staining or painting, offering a spectrum of finishes to suit your aesthetic preferences.


European Oak stands out for its unparalleled durability and timeless beauty. Exhibiting a rich golden hue and consistent grain, Oak doors exude elegance and strength. While commonly finished for aesthetics, Oak can also be stained for customised effects. Keep in mind, regular maintenance is essential to preserve its natural allure, as exposure to UV rays may cause it to silver over time.


For those prioritising durability, an Accoya exterior door is an exceptional option. Engineered through acetylation, Accoya wood boasts resistance to rot and elemental damage, ensuring longevity for decades to come. This modified timber offers improved stability and sustainability, making it an environmentally conscious choice. Additionally, Accoya’s enhanced coating properties simplify maintenance, providing a hassle-free solution for your exterior door needs.


Abodo offers another modified wood alternative. Abodo wood undergoes a transformative modification process, bolstering its innate strength and resilience against the elements. This modified timber boasts exceptional stability and durability, ensuring longevity for your door while minimising environmental impact. With its exquisite finish and commitment to eco-friendly practices, Abodo modified wood offers a sophisticated solution for homeowners prioritising both aesthetics and sustainability.

Our expertise extends beyond conventional sizes, catering to unique and unusual door dimensions and frames with precision and skill. Among our offerings, panelled Oak hardwood doors featuring small viewing windows have gained great approval from our customers. Additionally, Sapele doors remain a popular choice for their durability and timeless appeal. These solid wood doors, boasting thicknesses of up to 60mm, exude sturdiness and substance, finished with Sikkens Filter 7 for exceptional durability.

Security Measures

Prioritising safety, every replacement door we install is equipped with either a 5 lever British Standard Sash lock and deadlock, keyed alike, or a high-security multi-point locking system as standard.

Energy Efficiency Solutions

Efficiency matters, which is why our exterior glazed hardwood doors feature energy-efficient Pilkington K glass, ensuring optimal insulation and sustainability.

Tailored Planning Solutions

Each of our external doors is meticulously crafted to order, tailored to your specific design preferences. Our planning process takes into consideration not only your requirements but also the architectural period of your property. We assess the condition of your existing door to identify and address any weaknesses. Moreover, we factor in the orientation of your property and the prevailing weather conditions it faces.

Finish Options

Our commitment to excellence extends to the finish of your new door. Whether you prefer a sleek spray-painted finish or the timeless elegance of hand-applied paint or varnish, we offer a range of choices to ensure your door not only looks stunning but also receives the protection it deserves.
