Green Interior Doors

Are you looking to replace cheap, damaged hollow-core doors in your building?  If so, consider green options for your doors.  By adding solid wood interior doors made from reclaimed wood, FSC-certified wood, recycled content or rapidly renewable resources, you can make your doors look re-finished and modern.  A great resource for old antique doors that need a make-over is architectural salvage yards, where refinishing is sometimes an option.  Here is some more information about reclaimed wood doors:  

When we talk about reclaimed wood, most of it was originally sawn from old growth trees which are usually larger, older and had tighter growth rings than trees cut today.  When the wood is re-milled and re-finished, it provides rich colors and beauty, and not available from today’s timber. The price of these doors is about twice the price of stock doors you’ll find at big box retailers, but the quality and character are unsurpassed.  Liberty Valley Doors from California offer a Rediscovered Wood Door collection of new, unfinished doors constructed of 100% reclaimed wood, mainly Douglas Fir beams, joists and timbers. Doors are sanded and ready for finishing. Designs include 1-, 2- or 3-panel layout, with or without arches and pre-finishing is also available in these styles. 

Some more styles include Albany Woodworks from Albany, Louisiana custom crafts fine doors from antique heart cypress and antique heart pine.  From Tetonia, Idaho there is a place called Alternative Timber Structures which offers an amazing line of custom doors from reclaimed Fir, Cypress, Oak, Cedar and redwood which is all assembled using mortise, tenon and pegging. The last place is called Pine Door Company, they are located in Montana and retain the rich character and time-worn look of reclaimed barn wood in its handcrafted doors.  So as you see here are some great places to check out if your looking to re-finish old doors in your building and have them look beautiful, modern and new!
