Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) Doors
Medium density fiberboard, commonly known as MDF, is a composite made from recycled wood fibers and resin. The materials are combined, then subjected to intense temperature and pressure. This process creates dense, stable panels that can be milled like wood, but are more dependable and environmentally responsible. Solid wood tends to react to temperature and humidity, which can cause shrinking or cracking of a door as well as its finish. MDF is much more reliable and resists these changes for a door with lasting beauty and durability. MDF doors can be constructed in several ways. Stile and rail doors are assembled like a traditional wood door with horizontal rails and vertical stiles framing a panel. Other construction methods include router carving with inlaid or flush moulding, molded panels and layered panels. They are available in different thicknesses, as well as hundreds of styles and designs, including passage, bifold, louver, bypass, barn and pocket doors. All MDF doors come primed and ready to paint to match your décor. You can even get an MDF door with fire rating of up to 90 minutes. With all these options, you’re sure to find the right door for your room at Chapman Windows Doors & Siding.
