Things to Know About MDF Interior Doors – Basics, Benefits and Maintenance
To All Our Valued Customers, Over the past few years, the Covid 19 Pandemic has forced us to adapt and change the way we do things on a day-to-day basis. Florida Lumber is no exception. To make sure that we remain strong and competitive in the market for the years to come, Florida Lumber has had to adjust and change our vision for the future. In the last 2 years, we have stopped selling Sheetrock and drywall products, roofing felt and roofing materials, and have even closed on Saturdays.
Over the last few months, we have been transitioning our way out of the door supply business so on August 31, 2022, our door shop will stop assembling doors. We will continue liquidating our doors from inventory until we are out of material.
Some customers have asked if we are closing or even moving locations. To set the story straight, we are not closing or selling the business and we are not moving. These changes are all part of our new vision and path to continue serving South Florida and increasing our footprint in the construction supply industry.
Our focus is going to be on Lumber, Construction Materials, Rebar Fabrication and Rebar Accessories. As we have liquidated some of the items that we don’t sell anymore we have created more space to buy a larger volume of our core items and pass on the savings to our customers.
In the next year you will start seeing changes that will help improve our ability to serve you, our customers. We appreciate your business and your patience as Florida Lumber’s new vision becomes reality.

On the surface, selecting the most appealing and the suitable interior door may seem similar to choosing a design, but there’s substantially more to the task. Doors not only act as room separators, but also play the role of noise controller and privacy provider. MDF doors are built of a medium-density fiberboard, which is a processed wood product, and are usually applied in paint-grade applications. MDF doors are superior in terms of quality compared to molded doors and can be apportioned for the purpose of constructing vertical panels and rails. They may be built as a full door or in concert with wood. MDF wood affords the profile of a door with a crisper touch than a molded door, and it highly resembles a wood door once painted. MDF doors are also substantially heavier than other doors while delivering a superior level of privacy and noise control. Given all the advantages they provide – and their affordability --MMF doors are often considered to be the best home interior doors.
Basics of MDF Interior Doors
Usually, in the construction sector, it’s common practice to discard almost one-third of a tree’s bark when processing it to solid lumber. Beginning in 1966, some New York manufacturers started using the leftover wood scraps to develop a wood-like composite, a development that led to the creation of MDF, which utilizes up to 95 percent of the tree’s bark.
MDF is the by-product of the remains of a tree that is left out of solid lumber creation, which includes planer shavings and sawdust. Of late, many manufacturers have taken to fusing some other organic materials -- like post-consumer recycled wood and wheat -- to create MDF doors. This has refined the doors by providing offering a more uniform and sleek surface. This entire process is completed in just a couple of days, at which point the MDF is ready for a variety of uses.
Benefits of MDF Interior Doors
MDF’s numerous benefits make it a highly popular choice. It is easy to shape, and, unlike wood, it does not contain knots, making its surface smooth and spotless. Additionally, MDF interior doors are considered to be much sleeker, uniform and simpler to clean and maintain than other types of doors. MDF doors can also be easily painted and finished. Furthermore, they are very receptive to a faux wood finish, which adds a more elegant look.
Additional benefits include durability, strength and sturdiness. MDF doors are known for resisting denting, deforming, rotting, and other types of damage that standard wood doors are typically susceptible to. MDF doors are awesome sound resistant, giving you enough privacy at every corner of your house. They are fabricated from sustainable material and leftover wood products, rendering them thoroughly eco-friendly.
Maintenance for MDF Doors
MDF doors are actually quite simple to maintain and are cleaner than solid wood doors, as they are free from rotting, warping and other types of damage. Additionally, their sturdy fabrication means that maintenance is typically limited to a fresh coat of paint or finish, along with occasional cleaning with a damp cloth.
An Affordable and Sustainable Choice for your Home
MDF interior doors are a great choice for your home due to their affordability and sustainability. They are essentially maintenance-free and serve as a long-term, reliable option. They are easy to paint and finish as well, giving them an elegant and delicate appearance.
Medium-density fiberboard, which is also termed as MDF, is composed of the leftover tree scraps that are widely used in home construction.
