About this door
The External Hardwood Chiswick door is a fantastic looking, simplistic and yet traditional door style.
With a large single glazing aperture above a raised and fielded lower panel, the door perfectly balances allowing lots of light to flood into the home, with an attractive timber panelling.
Also available in a matching french door option, these doors allow you to increase natural light levels in your home, creating a great look as well as a brighter and more spacious feeling.
Supplied ready to glaze with a range of glass options available, these doors will accept a 4/6/4 cavity double glazed unit.
This door comes with the optional choice of glazing. We order the glass in especially for you, so it will add a small amount of time to the overall manufacturing lead times.
At present, most glazing options are taking between 3 - 10 working days (approx) to arrive into us.
Where available, specialist glass such as stained, leaded, or encapsulated glass can take up to 6 weeks; however, we think it's worth the wait!
It's important to factor in these lead times, as once ordered, we are unable to cancel or refund the glazing.
Supplied unfinished, these doors are able to take a stain or paint finish. A range of products would be suitable, including Impranol, which is available from the "Stains, Paints and Finishes" section of our website.
The correct storage, fitting, and finishing of your new doors are very important factors in getting the best out of your purchase.
Please always avoid the use of water-based finishing products as this may cause the door to bow, warp or delaminate. Using these types of products will invalidate your guarantee.
Before finishing your door, we would always recommend reading our Door Care information which can be viewed by clicking here, along with any additional manufacturer's documentation supplied with the door itself.
These doors are manufactured using laminated veneered lumber (LVL). LVL or more commonly known as “engineered timber” is a modern method of construction that is economical with the use of natural timber resources.
The main parts & rails of the door are usually constructed using solid strips/blocks of timber (some internals may contain a laminated board and/or particleboard), which are then glued and then clamped together.
They are then faced with a veneer and edged with a solid timber “lipping”. The benefits of using engineered construction doors over more traditional methods are that it is far more unlikely to twist or split (we do not get problems with panels splitting) and possibly the most important reason is that it is much more eco-friendly!
