Exterior Prehung Doors
Pre-hung doors, as the name suggests, are doors that already attached to its frame. Pre-hung doors are generally used as an exterior doors. You can open and close the doors that are on the frame.

Also, if you are constructing a new home or going for home remodeling, you can easily use pre-hung door for convenience. Pre-hung doors come in a variety of designs, colors, and style options made of wood, steel, etc. Unlike the slab doors that were widely used, a pre-hung door can either have a hollow core or solid core. The most popular choice for these doors is molded hardwood. While both types offer durability and security, solid-core doors offer greater sound-proofing properties. While shopping for prefinished wood doors, make sure to look for durable stains and clear finishes, such as polyurethane. Also pay attention to the detailing on the wood, the more intricate carving and molding on the door, the better the quality.
When it comes to security and durability, you will agree there is no match for steel doors. Steel doors will definitely not warp and crack like wood or fiberglass, thus making them an ideal choice for exterior doors. Foam or corkboard is used to fill the hollow between the two frames that make the door. The surface of the door is either embossed to attain a wood-grain pattern, or is simply fitted with a laminated-wood veneer.
