What If the Wooden Door Expands and Cannot Be Closed? How to Choose the Wooden Door

The application of wooden doors is becoming increasingly common in today's homes. Their quality is often guaranteed, ensuring durability and aesthetic appeal. However, in daily life, wooden doors can sometimes swell, making them difficult to close tightly. This can be a frustrating experience for homeowners who are unsure of how to address this issue. Fortunately, the solution to a wooden door that can't be closed is relatively simple. In this article, we will explore what to do when a wooden door won't close and provide tips on how to select the right wooden door for your needs.

When faced with a wooden door that won't close properly due to swelling, it is advisable to seek the assistance of a professional carpenter. They can assess the situation and determine the best course of action. If the gap on the hinge side of the door has become larger, the carpenter may be able to make slight adjustments to make it smaller. However, if this is not possible, they may need to plane down the swollen areas of the door. It's important to note that wood has a natural tendency to expand and contract with changes in temperature and humidity. If possible, considering choosing a door with good waterproof and moisture-proof properties to minimize the chances of the door swelling in the first place.

When it comes to selecting wooden doors, there are several factors to consider:

What If the Wooden Door Expands and Cannot Be Closed? How to Choose the Wooden Door 1

1. Know the type of wooden door: Wooden doors come in various types, including solid wood doors, solid core doors, and plywood doors. Understanding the different types and their respective characteristics will help you make an informed decision. Before starting the decoration design process, have a preliminary plan in mind regarding the type of wooden door that suits your style.

2. Gather knowledge about wooden doors: Before making a purchase, conduct research online to gain a preliminary understanding of wooden doors. Engage in conversations with sales associates in different stores and don't hesitate to ask questions. It's important to listen to their explanations and learn more about the ins and outs of purchasing wooden doors. When considering wooden doors of the same style and brand, compare the quality, price, and service offerings to make the best choice.

3. Choose a reputable brand: Opting for a wooden door from a trusted brand will provide assurance in terms of consumer satisfaction and after-sales service. Look for brands that offer explicit guarantees, such as a three-year warranty with unconditional returns and lifelong maintenance for any quality issues.

4. Consider the decoration style: Determine the overall decoration style of your home and select doors and windows that complement it. Additionally, consider the function of the door based on its intended use and placement. For instance, general decorative doors are suitable for household use, shutter doors are ideal for storage rooms requiring ventilation, and doors with glass panels can enhance the decorative effect in room lobbies.

5. Choose environmentally friendly wooden doors: It's important to be aware of the harmful substances that may be present in wooden doors, such as those from man-made wooden panels and paints. When purchasing, ensure that the doors meet environmental protection standards, such as formaldehyde emission levels below 1.5mg/l and limited levels of soluble lead, cadmium, and chromium. Look for lightweight doors with good rigidity that are waterproof, anti-corrosion, moth-resistant, sound-insulating, thermally insulating, and flame retardant. These doors should have properties similar to wood, providing a warm and fragrant feel to your home while ensuring the health and well-being of your family.

In conclusion, if you encounter a swollen wooden door that won't close properly, seek the assistance of a professional carpenter who can assess and repair the issue. When selecting wooden doors, consider the type, gather knowledge, choose reputable brands, match the decoration style, and prioritize environmentally friendly options. By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your wooden doors are both functional and aesthetically pleasing, contributing to a harmonious and comfortable living space.
