Chinook Prefinished Hollow Metal Doors
Prefinished Hollow Metal Doors
A prefinished hollow metal door is a commercial steel door that comes pre-painted. Normal hollow metal doors are coated with a rust inhibiting gray primer that is ready for paint, whereas prefinished hollow metal doors come finished in three different colors: gray, off white, or bright white. The main advantage of prefinished hollow metal doors is the time saving aspect. If your door application requires you to paint the door, a prefinished door can save you hours of labor. A typical hollow metal door paint job requires you to tape off the door, frame, and remove all hardware just to paint the door. However, if the door application requires a special kind of paint, your best bet would be to purchase the hollow metal doors in the gray primer finish, and paint them on site. Not all jobs require prefinished hollow metal doors. Many door installations use the gray primer finish as the final product, in fact that has become the standard finished look for commercial hollow metal doors. Prefinished hollow metal doors are very popular in residential home applications, where the homeowner is looking for a more secure door than wood, but wants to match the white trim work or siding of the home. For these reasons the off white or bright white prefinished hollow metal doors are very popular. There are a few disadvantages to prefinished hollow metal doors, and that is delivery and installation. When the door and frame come pre-painted they are at more risk for dings or scratches in the finished paint especially during the shipping process or installation process. In comparison, a gray primer hollow metal door is shipped, installed, and then painted last, ensuring no chance of damage to the paint job. Another disadvantage to prefinished hollow metal doors is that you are limited to three color choices: gray, bright white, and off white. If you choose the standard gray primer hollow metal door and paint the door and frame yourself, you have unlimited color choices to choose from.
