Everyone has heard of oak and pine - but hemlock is maybe not as well known. Hemlock is a very versatile wood - used in many applications, from pallets and crates to construction and even furniture. And, you guessed it - it’s also a popular choice for doors. Hemlock is often combined with other timbers like fir, which is used as the engineered core. This method helps to strengthen the construction and ensure longevity of the product, whilst also helping keep costs to a minimum.

Hemlock actually gets tougher as it gets older, which is why it makes such a great substitute for oak. Easily worked with power tools, and providing excellent grip for screws, hemlock is a favourite amongst craft and tradespeople.

Hemlock is a light reddish brown colour and has defined growth rings which make for an attractive grain pattern. Hemlock doors are a dream to coat, so if you are looking to achieve a flawless smooth painted finish, or an even, saturated stain - hemlock is definitely worth considering.

Installing a glazed external door is a great way to let natural light into the home, using a wooden door makes customising your glazing options almost limitless.
