    The color of maple is generally pale or cream in color, and it has a uniform, smooth grain pattern. It is often best suited for interior use. However, it can be used for exterior doors when installed in a setting with some protection, such as an overhanging roof over your entryway. Read on to learn about the pros and cons of exterior maple doors.

    Costs of Exterior Maple Doors

    Maple doors come in a wide range of prices, but are generally somewhat expensive. Though some maple doors can cost nearly $1000, they more commonly fall somewhere between $360 and $450. Maple is a premium wood species, however, so the higher price tag pays for a higher quality.

    Maple is not an endangered or threatened species of wood, but homeowners who are concerned about the environmental impact of their door can purchase a solid wood door certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

    Durability of Maple

    Maple is a hard, durable species known for its high shock resistance. However, maple is particularly susceptible to rot and insect infestation. It also has the tendency to yellow with age if left untreated. Even so, maple doors can withstand the elements well if they receive regular maintenance.

    How to Treat Your Maple Entry Door

    Maple is a hardwood, but it can still be easily worked with both hand and machine tools. Homeowners should take care when using high-speed machine tools, because maple has the tendency to burn. This type of wood can be temperamental when finished, so it's good to use a pre-stain conditioner beforehand. Sanding thoroughly often helps the stain to apply more evenly. Additionally, applying tung or linseed oil after sanding can bring out an attractive coloration in maple.

    Repairs and Maintenance

    All wooden doors need regular maintenance, and a maple entry door is no exception. Homeowners should carefully monitor a maple door in order to keep up with any maintenance. It is particularly important to watch out for evidence of rot, yellowing, or insect infection. To combat these threats, it is important to be particularly thorough when finishing your maple entry door.

    Energy Efficiency and Tax Credits

    In general, wood doors are not as energy efficient as other exterior door options. Depending on their thickness, most wood doors have an R-value between R-1 and R-2. Many manufacturers , however, can add an insulation core to the door panels, raising the R-value to about R-5, or higher.

    Summary: A Reliable Choice for your Home

    Though maple can be temperamental, its stability and pleasing appearance make it a reliable addition to your home. Maple requires regular maintenance and care, and as long as this care is provided diligently, maple is a sturdy building material.
