Interior Doors

An interior door is any door that does not provide access to the outside of a home or building. Closet doors, bedroom doors, bathroom doors, and office doors are all considered interior doors. There are several different types of interior doors, many of which are used in both residential and commercial construction.

Standard interior doors are simply one-piece doors that fit an opening and are mounted on hinges to one side of the opening. They swing out or into a room, depending on installation, and can accommodate an interior doorknob, which can be locked from inside the room. Some standard interior doors are solid wood, but many are hollow. They can be stained or primed and painted. A six-panel door is also a standard interior door, but with recessed panels added as a design element.

Another type of interior door is the bi-fold door. Bi-fold doors are one of the most popular types of interior doors used for closets and between two frequently used rooms. Bi-fold doors are two doors hinged together that fold into one another. They are mounted on a track that hangs from the head, or top, of the opening. An opening can hold one single bi-fold door or two doors that meet in the middle. They are a popular choice because when they are opened, there is less intrusion into the room than standard doors. The design of bi-fold doors can be solid, louvered, or a combination of both. There are also six-paneled bi-fold doors for added design. Bi-fold doors are generally not used for areas requiring privacy, such as bathrooms.

Pocket doors are interior doors  that slide away from the opening and into the wall. They are very popular, especially in new construction, because they allow an opening to be fully accessible while not requiring any space. They can be locked, and thus work for any room. However, replacing interior doors with pocket doors is far more extensive than any other type or replacement. There must be a non-load bearing wall  wide enough to house the door next to the opening and the existing framing must be torn out and replaced with framing that will accommodate the pocket door.

Whether you are undergoing new construction or remodeling an existing home, there are plenty of varieties of interior doors that will give your room or space the right look and still serve their intended purpose.

Exterior Doors

Keep energy efficiency in perspective.

Steel and fiberglass doors have more insulating value than wood doors, but the differences really don’t matter much. For one thing, doors are a very small part of the surface area of a house and therefore don’t allow large amounts of warm to air escape. For another, heat is generally lost through air leaks around the door, not through the door itself. At All Seasons Home Improvements we will help you choose the exterior door that looks the best and is the most energy efficient or your needs.
