Topic: Alternative Door options for Teak and Flush

Hi,

I need some information on the doors. My house is in brick work stage. The builder is providing Neem window and door frames with Flush doors. I am planning to upgrade the doors. Below are my plans as of now.

I will get the teak door for the main entrance. 2 other doors are exposed to outside wether and need suggestions for these in low budget ( max 5k).  I went on researching market and found that babul and Sal are availble as other options. These are available in the range of 2.5k ( babul). I was really impressed with the quality id the door that he demoed me with Babul. Hence thought of replacing the other doors as well.

How good are babul and Sal for making doors? Can they withstand the weather?  Please let me know the other options as well.

Thanks,
vamsi.

Babul is not good. Saal is good.

Dear Vamsi
           According to my opinion, Use saal wood for frame for chowkats of door and windows.See the link below for comparison

@ Purvi and SL Gupta sir,

Thank you for your response.  I was just wondering what are the advantages of a flush door over the standard saal/babu doors.  I can still remember we used to have non teak doors for the houses in my child days and they still seems to be good.


I have inquired locally with many dealers and every one said that the life of a flush door will not be more than 5-10 yrs. So I was thinking why not a babul/need door with a decolam sheet framed to it. Strength wise I am sure the Solid door is much better than the flush. Please correct me, if I am wrong

Dear Vasmi
        It is not correct that the life of flush door is 5-10 years ( local made may be). If you have I S I  HOT PRESSED flush door with water proof ply than life is as equal with other doors. Choice is of your.
