In three parts, take you step by step to see this little fairy through the wooden door~



What are the materials of wooden doors?

When it comes to wooden doors, the first thing you think of is a solid wood door, but I must remind you that the solid wood door is not necessarily made of solid wood. If you think all the solid wood doors are made of solid wood, you are wrong!


news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-What are the pits for the purchase of solid wood doors, original wood doors-1

The solid wood door we usually say actually refers to a "solid wood composite door." That is not to say that the merchant is stealing the concept, but because its surface is indeed stuck to the solid wood skin.


At present, the mainstream wooden doors in the market are roughly divided into three categories: original wooden doors, solid wood composite doors and molded doors.


It is mainly distinguished by the core of the board.

For the decoration of Newbie, the only reference index for selecting wooden doors is the price. The starting price of solid wood composite doors is more than 1,000, only high or low. The original wood door is even more expensive. Those bought for hundreds of dollars are mostly molded doors. If the merchant tells you that more than 1,000 bought a log door, who believes who is a fool!



How to identify whether it is real solid wood?

"Look" -look at the core and surface pattern of the door panel, the pattern is naturally solid wood, "smell" -the solid wood plate will have a natural aroma, but the synthetic board does not, "knock" -knock the plate with your hand The solid is solid wood, and the composite board is empty, "touch" -the touch feels solid wood, " grip "-the skinned door will be lighter.

First of all, a picture allows you to understand the structure clearly so that it is convenient to understand the following content:

Generally speaking, everybody who buys a door is pitted, usually the door core. Some merchants have done a good job on the surface and ended up making big articles on the door core board. If you don’t choose, you can only break your teeth and swallow.


Well, the editor then tells you about three mainstream wooden doors.

Log door: refers to a wooden door made of natural wood as raw material, and the same tree species are used for all parts of the door leaf. Of course, according to the process requirements, it can be divided into whole board production or wood board splicing.

news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-What are the pits for the purchase of solid wood doors, original wood doors-2


The characteristic of this kind of door is environmental protection because there is very little glue. The color can be made into any color, and some businesses also provide their own DIY modeling services. Moreover, sound insulation and heat preservation, the general wood doors are more than 70 pounds.


Identify: The most carved and exaggerated in the store, the most expensive is that it is down to more than two thousand, and it is not capped!


Solid wood composite door: The door core is generally filled with pine, cypress, fir or other unknown wood, and the surface is MDF or wood grain paper.

news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-img-3


There are two types of solid wood composite doors, one is called a wood composite door, and the other is called a finger-jointed solid wood door.


The wooden composite door is filled with plates or small wood slag and glue.

Direct access solid wood door filled intermediate block is environmentally friendly wood better than solid wood doors of wood.

news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-What are the pits for the purchase of solid wood doors, original wood doors-3


Generally, solid wood composite doors range from 30 to 80 pounds, the heavier the better. The price is determined by the type and amount of wood filler in it. It is also related to the type of veneer affixed to the outside of the door. Generally, the ash is about 1500. The carved ones can be more expensive than some original wood doors.


Moulded door : This kind of door is made of two high-density fiber molded door skins with modeling and simulated wood grain. Simply put, it is an empty shell inside and a layer of skin on the outside.

news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-img-4


Most of them are hollow, so light, the molded door can not provide color swatches, only choose the color style provided by the merchant! It is not soundproof and moistureproof, and it is the least used. Almost 1,000 on the market are like this.

The three price trends are: original wood door>solid wood composite door≥molded door

Speaking of which, someone may want to ask, the wooden door is so expensive, where is it expensive? According to professional understanding, if the price of a door is 1,000 yuan, then the price composition is approximate:

Door core: Skin: Door cover=5:3:2


What are the common door cores?

For those of us, solid wood composite doors are a popular trend. From the perspective of price, there are more than one thousand to three or four thousand. Why is the price difference so large? The reason is that the door core is the most important and the most important part. If the door core material is solid and the wood is expensive, the cost is high. On the contrary, if the wood core is used to glue the board into a hollow door panel, the cost is very low.

Here are a few common door cores, let's take a quick look at the situation of your door.


Hollow particle board:

Also known as bridge hole mechanical particleboard, it is made of solid wood chips into a unique tubular structure.

news-What are the pits for the purchase of solid wood doors, original wood doors, and molded doors-R-4


Don’t think it looks watery, in fact, it also has many advantages: it can evenly distribute the external force and ensure that it is not deformed. Since the weight is less than half of the solid wood of the same size, it can avoid the deformation caused 

by the hinge and the door cover being too heavy. Extended service life. The point is cheap!

Of course, the above is the original imported standard. As for the current major building materials market sales and those in those small shops, I am afraid that it is more likely to use waste wood slag.


Solid particle board:

Generally, it is a three-layer composite wood, the overall performance is better than the hollow, and the cost is slightly higher.

news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-What are the pits for the purchase of solid wood doors, original wood doors-4

Goods with sufficient qualifications are basically used for export to foreign countries. As for domestic sales, most of them are made of waste wood and wood slag. The surface of the high-quality particleboard can even be directly glued with wood 

veneer or painted without the need for another layer of MDF.


Honeycomb paper:

The cost of this kind of door core is the cheapest, you can know that this kind of door is very crooked by looking at the picture. It belongs to this door core.

news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-img-5


news-What are the pits for the purchase of solid wood doors, original wood doors, and molded doors-R-5

It is mostly used in paint-free doors and steel-wood doors. The quality is very poor, it does not impact resistant at all, and the sound insulation effect is also quite poor. (It is the first among merchants’ tricks to cut corners and cut corners)


MDF partition:

MDF, also known as fiberboard, is an artificial board made of wood fibers or other plant fibers with urea-formaldehyde resin or other adhesives.

news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-What are the pits for the purchase of solid wood doors, original wood doors-5

The advantages of this door core are cheap, high material utilization, the disadvantage is high formaldehyde content! If there are elderly or children at home, it is best not to buy this.


Plywood partition:

Also called multi-layer board, LVL is a three-layer or multi-layer plate-like material that is formed by rotting wood segments into veneer or planing into thin wood and then glued with adhesive.

news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-img-6

Usually, an odd number of veneers are used, and the fibers of adjacent veneers are glued perpendicular to each other. The advantage is cheap! The disadvantage is still high formaldehyde content! (The above picture is special, it looks like a 

wooden door core with a frame appearance. Normally, the multilayer board is mostly hollow next to it.)


Wooden partition:

It is equivalent to a solid wood block, but there are many gaps. The material is generally used for, pinewood nicely called Xiangshan, Douglas fir. Because the raw materials belong to the cork category, the hardness is poor and not durable, but it is 

more environmentally friendly.

news-What are the pits for the purchase of solid wood doors, original wood doors, and molded doors-R-6


Some businesses cut corners to increase the width of the expansion joint gap and reduce the amount of wood (as shown below)

news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-What are the pits for the purchase of solid wood doors, original wood doors-6


Plastic foam:

This is rare, the captain can only say that its thermal insulation effect should be good. Impact resistance and sound insulation are poor. The weight is of course very light.

news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-img-7

The editor thinks that if anyone knows what is in the middle of the door panel, I will buy it if I am crazy!


Particleboard + wooden file composite hollow door core:

The hollow door core combined with particle board and wooden file compound are more common in molded doors and various hollow doors, and the price is very cheap.

Door core I introduced these types, you are not watching the amazing little door core actually there are so many doorways it?


So when you buy a wooden door, don’t be fooled by the appearance and the rhetoric of the store. Maybe, the door you bought hard, the core may be filled with various waste materials:

news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-What are the pits for the purchase of solid wood doors, original wood doors-7


When I bought this kind of door, I thought I wanted to be killed. Of course, the first one was broken. I guess it was the door.

You may want to ask, I am not an expert, there is no way to identify them one by one, and the business is not melon. It is impossible to cut it for us. Even if it is cut, who can guarantee not to change the soup?

Don't worry, then the editor will talk about how to use the elimination method to judge and choose the solid wood composite door.



How to choose a solid wood composite door?

Finger joint solid wood door:

There are two kinds of solid wood composite doors, one is a wooden solid wood door, and the other is a direct solid wood door 


(I talked about it when I was talking about three mainstream wooden doors. I turned back and looked at it without understanding it). Because there is too much glue in the middle of the wooden solid wood door, it is not environmentally friendly, and everyone is definitely not willing to buy it. Then I will mainly talk about finger-jointed solid wood doors.


Generally speaking, the cubic cross-sections we see in the business showroom are basically frame cross-sections, and we can't see what materials are used for the door core. But we can feel the quality of the framework. After all, the quality of the solid wood blocks used in the frame will also affect the life of the wooden door.

news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-img-8


Good finger-jointed solid wood has a smooth surface, no blockage, more annual rings, and a slightly lighter color, indicating that the wood has a certain year and has good dryness and is not easy to deform.

Direct solid wood door frame section

Molded door:

The molded door can be seen from the cross-section at a glance whether the frame is good or bad. The frame-like picture below is made of solid wood waste crushed and glued, and the materials used are quite poor. The panel layer is covered with an almost negligible PVC film.

news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-What are the pits for the purchase of solid wood doors, original wood doors-8


Molded plate frame section

The molded door will burst in less than a long time, and the impact resistance is really weak enough. Imagine that the door the core is empty, can it withstand impact? The scene in the TV series that breaks through, the props are probably it!

news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-img-9


Wood door:

Because the original wood door is made of natural wood, there is a sense of integration, and the difference in the section can be seen at a glance. If you plan to buy a wooden door, all you need to do is to study the texture of various kinds of wood, and run a few more wooden door merchants to compare the feel and weight.

Purchase points:

1. Take European-style wooden doors as the representative. Anyone who sees the four corners of the wooden door with obvious interfaces must refer to the solid wood door.

news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-What are the pits for the purchase of solid wood doors, original wood doors-9


2. Looking at the surface relief, the relief pattern of the molded door is shallow, because it is a template that is integrally formed, it can only make a concave shape but not a convex shape.

news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-img-10



3. Outer convex carved can be made on the solid wood composite door. Generally, the three-dimensional carved on the solid wood composite door is carved from logs, then nailed with a spray gun, and finally nailed on the surface. More or less will leave traces of nails.

news-What are the pits for the purchase of solid wood doors, original wood doors, and molded doors-R-10


4. Because the carving is attached in one piece, there is no seamless connection between the two boards. There is a shadow at the joint. You will find it if you look closely.

What factors should be considered when choosing a wooden door style?

Although the wooden door can be customized according to your own wishes, you must also consider the color of the wall and floor in the home and the unity of the overall style. Only in this way can it play a icing on the cake.

In addition, I have my own budget. It is not necessary to buy paint doors. After all, the unit price of paint doors is expensive.

news-Runcheng Chuangzhan-img-11



What are the costs of custom-made wooden doors?

When customizing the wooden door, pay attention to the price of the door itself, but also include labor costs and accessories. The package does not include the hardware; whether the door cover and the wooden door are of the same material, if you change to a uniform material, you need to ask clearly and write on the contract.


The price of solid wood doors is generally around 3000 yuan, and the price of solid wood composite doors is generally around 1200~1600 yuan. The quality of solid wood composite doors at this price is guaranteed, and the cost performance is the highest. The price of the molded door is lower, not more than 1,000 yuan. The specific price still depends on the style and accessories.

Is the wooden door bought online reliable?

Not reliable, the size of the ready-made wooden door is set, not necessarily suitable for the height of the wall of your home. You still have to go to the store to check the goods yourself or let the master go to the door to measure and then set the door. Remember, you must choose a well-known brand.

Learn these, you are also a selection expert

After reading this part, the merchant would like to bluff you, it is difficult! (This part is to teach you how to do it when you buy wooden doors in the store)

1) Don't ask the boss directly how to sell the "solid wood door" when you enter the store. Knowing that a little insider will not use this statement at all, so your mouth reveals your little white essence.

2—Don't enter the door and ask the boss what the core is. If you don't look at it, you will ask. The boss will definitely see that you don't understand the situation.

3) After careful observation, call the boss to quote, and then you must be confident to ask "What is filled in this XX door? Is there a model?", and then call the boss to show you the model.

4) Carefully observe whether the wood in the middle of the sample section has annual rings, those with annual rings are wood, and those without annual rings are made of mixed wood or wood slag glue.

5) Observe the color of the wood inside. If it is black, it means that the wood has not been dried and has become a little moldy. If it is a log color, it means the treatment is good.

6) Finally, pinch your fingernails and see the pinch in the middle to get the seal. The wood from which the pinch is printed is cork, and the quality is not good.

Note that the above steps should be calm, disdainful, I understand very well and look down on you as a door. No matter how much your budget, you must be very cold!

7) Usually, the boss would like to introduce you to see you like this. At this time, you ask the question, where is the filled XX material? Where is the wooden door production site? How long is the drying process of the wooden door?

8) Even if the boss doesn't think you are an insider, you will think you know the market at least.

He can't answer two of these questions. That is not the boss. Then he will go to the boss and explain it to you. The boss can't answer, then this is probably a dealer. If there is a problem the next day, it will only be pushed away, and I persuade you to give up this one. 


to sum up:

If you have an economic foundation, it is recommended to buy a wooden door. If you think it is expensive, then it is best to choose a composite solid wood door. But we must pay attention to the material of the door core because the quality of the door core directly determines the quality of the wooden door. If you are the kind of molded door, if you live by yourself, I urge everyone not to buy it. The impact resistance is not good, the sound insulation effect is poor, and the service life is short. It is better to buy a few hundred composite woods.
