A wood door is not just a slab of wood. Wood doors are often called stile and rail because of the individual components that come together to make up the door. Stiles, rails, panels and mullions are machined with great accuracy and attention to detail to ensure a perfect fit. It takes skilled craftsmen many hours to build doors that live up to our quality and aesthetical standards.
JELD-WEN® Authentic Wood Doors are constructed with beauty in mind and lasting performance at heart. Traditionally, wood doors were made using stile and rail components machined out of solid lumber. Wood is a living organism that expands and contracts based on changes in temperature and humidity, and the bigger the piece, the more it moves. Many older wood doors show signs of these “changes” with warped stiles or split panels. JELD-WEN Authentic Wood Doors feature an “engineered” core construction with premium wood veneers on top for the best performance and stain finish quality, as well as matching solid wood sticking and edgebands for an even stain match.
With JELD-WEN’S Authentic Wood Doors, your doors are truly reliable to the core.

Sustainable pine is harvested from plantation forests. It is a softwood with a distinct pinstripe grain pattern and a uniform color. The wood will darken and yellow with age, adding character and charm. It machines to a fine, smooth finish and easily accepts lighter stains and paint. Staining is recommended to achieve a uniform appearance because pine naturally contains resins that can affect penetration. Knots should be sealed before painting.
While usually recognized by its darker tone, cherry can be stained in a variety of shades. The cherry we use varies from rich red to reddish brown in color. It features a smooth texture with fine, straight and close grain. Occasionally, thin gum pockets and small clusters of pin knots are visible. These character marks, along with random blonde streaks of sapwood, add a distinctive quality to the wood. Cherry will darken over time with exposure to light and contains miniscule pith marks as identifiers. Cherry stains easily and smoothly.
This hardwood is one of the most popular species used today. Oak is renowned for its dramatically pronounced grain pattern. This pattern varies from tight, vertical grain to a beautifully arched pattern. This wood may also feature pin knots and mineral streaks. The color range includes light straw and honey with a light pink hue. Very durable and strong, oak accepts stains evenly and is easy to work with.
A dense hardwood that has a prolonged life. Maple is a hard, strong wood with a smooth texture and uniform grain. The grain is fine and is similar to birch and cherry. It may exhibit random darker streaks and occasional birds-eye or worm track patterns. Over time, maple will melow in color dur to natural exposure to light and air. Traditionally used for interior applications. No grain filler required when finishing.
A popular species today because of its pronounced grain and uniform texture. This versatile wood species features a fairly straight grain with areas of burl clusters and small knots. These marks add character and will provide a darker texture and color when finished. Knotty Alder varies from pale yellow to reddish brown and it accepts stains exceptionally well. The knots are brown to black and vary in size, shape and color. This wood is the lightest and least dense. Knotty alder presents a more rustic look. When stained, alder blends well with walnut, mahogany and cherry.
Sustainable knotty pine is harvested from plantation forests and is a softwood that is usually light in color with pink-brown variations. Distinct color variations occur and the grain can appear straight or erratic depending on how it is cut from the log. The wood will darken and yellow with age, adding character and charm. It machines to a fine, smooth finish and easily accepts lighter stains and paint. Staining is recommended to achieve a uniform appearance because pine naturally contains resins that can affect penetration. Knots should be sealed before painting.
One of the less expensive hardwood species and often referred to as “affordable cherry.” This wood species is a smooth, fine-grained wood with a relatively smooth texture. It is mostly light in color, but it also features dramatic color variation, mineral streaks and small cluster knots that vary in color from light brown to green. Applying darker stained finishes or painted finishes to the wood will help minimize these color ships. This wood is moderately soft, easy to work with and takes paint well.
Primed doors are white in color and feature a smooth finish that is ready to paint.
