Mastercraft Doors

Interior Door Overview

When we talk about interior doors, we should always choose what is best suited to the color of the walls and lighting in the room and the color of the furniture. After the color selection is made, then select the material by which you want your door to be made. Some choices available are:

Stile and Rail Doors: These doors are made from individual rails, stiles, and panels to make them in the traditional architectural style.  With uplifted and flat panels in multiple forms and materials.

 Duracore Doors: These are premium type interior doors when you consider the privacy first. They are made by filling the hollow core doors with environmentally friendly foam to provide the best level of insulation and privacy between your rooms.

Solid Core Doors: Two molded surfaces wrap a solid core. This type has more strength and better noise reduction for added privacy.

Hollow Core Doors: These are lightweight doors with a hollow core between two molds. A smooth or woodgrain texture is available, which looks like traditional doors. Best suited as bathroom or toilet doors.

When you must work from home, you need a tranquil environment. One of the best ways to minimize the noise in your home is to have sound blocking doors. Duracore is the best-suited door type for this purpose.

Exterior Door System

Certain things you need to consider while opting for an external door is whether to go for the strength and security of Steel or durability of fiberglass. Also, you can add some accessories like Pet accessible doors, Peep sight, Dentil shelf.

Prefinished Woodgrain Steel:  Look of wood and that too without maintenance and all the great benefits of a steel door.

Prefinished Solid Colour Steel:  Vibrant and fade-resistant colors.

Steel: Built to provide security and energy efficiency while offering the largest style selection.

Prefinished Woodgrain Fiberglass: With woodgrain texture.

Smooth Fiberglass: Provide a perfect surface for a clean, painted finish.

Steel door advantages:

  1. Complete frame system
  2. Energy-efficient insulated glass
  3. Reinforced lock-block
  4. Rigid steel construction
  5. Polyurethane foam core
  6. High definition door panels
  7. Tight sealing sweep
  8. Superior still construction

Your home’s exterior doors can advance significantly towards air leakage and can also wither energy through conduction, especially if it’s aged, uninsulated, wrongly installed, and poorly air sealed.

Keeping this in mind, Mastercraft takes full responsibility for making, delivering, and installing your door just right. You can also add a factory-installed 3-point locking system to your exterior door for increased protection of your house and sleep without any worries at the night.

Sliding Patio Doors

These type of doors slides on track which is excellent for rooms with limited space. They have large glass areas, which allow more natural light to come through. They are ideal for decks and patios, or any location connecting the interior of your house with the exterior area around your home. They feature an aluminum-clad exterior offering extra protection.

Hinged Patio Doors

These types of doors are great for rooms with extra space to allow the doors to swing open into the rooms. They are best suited for enclosed porches and sunrooms, or decks and patios with an overhang.

Interior designer doors come with a five-star rating in privacy. Wooden doors are mainly used for interiors to prolong its beautiful aesthetics. They are suitable for diverse weather conditions, whether hot or cold. They are quite affordable too.

Other materials are also used for the interiors like Steel doors, which are weather and corrosion-resistant but expansive; Fiberglass doors are better for outdoors but can be used inside too; Glass doors are only used for insides; Aluminum doors are quite affordable, and Hollow Metal doors are very reliable but lack insulation.

Patio doors, on the other hand, require some care due to the full glass used in the frame, but they give an aesthetically rich look to your house. They not only increase the looks of your home but can also prove to be very useful by acting as a divider or a casual entry and exit gate.

These glass doors provide a clear and uninterrupted view of your garden, balcony, or the beautiful terrace surrounded by beautiful natural scenery.
