About Our White Doors
What does Champion Timbers White Door range consist of?
- White Pre-Finished Doors - When a door is pre-finished it means it's ready to be installed immediately upon delivery to your project or home, with no extra staining, varnish or painting required. Here at Door Superstore we supply a range of prefinished doors in order to save time and money and can often be useful when you aren’t feeling confident enough to finish the door without imperfections – fully finished internal doors are often finished in factories to allow maximum consistency and precision.
- White Primed Doors - White Primed internal doors are a logical upgrade from the standard moulded hollow core doors, this is due to the fact they are manufactured with a semi-solid core that offers a real quality sturdy feel and as such requires 3 hinges to hang.
Not only are white interior doors elegant, simplistic and timeless they also support the spread of light throughout the home. This is simply because white doors can reflect the light around the room, making it appear brighter, especially if you decide on a gloss final finish. One common trend at the moment is to use White Primed Doors upstairs in narrow or smaller corridors to make the room appear airier and less cramped.
- White Moulded Doors - Moulded doors are cheaper as they are made from wood by-products that are pressed together in a range of different styles. They can be hollow or solid; sound-proofing on hollow doors is generally quite poor, so these would tend to be used on cupboards and less significant rooms.
What is the difference between White Primed and White Moulded doors?
Moulded doors have a hollow core and inner frames which are made of softwood. They are very light and not that durable in certain environments but in today’s new-build market many national housebuilders look to install the cheapest solution “to fill a hole”, so these doors are very popular. Glazed options are also available.
Solid core oak, hardwood or walnut, or solid white primed doors look and feel like high-quality doors, adding true value to your home. Whilst these are generally more expensive than moulded panel doors, they do give that natural look, and also, you feel the quality when opening and closing the door, with some real weight. You hear the “clunk” rather than the “click” when they close.
What does 'Primed' mean for a door?
Doors that have been prepared with an undercoat ready for a topcoat finish.
