Cracks in Wood Stave Doors

Here, at Sing Core, we get calls all the time about problems associated with wood stave doors, especially if they are large, oversized wood stave doors. These problems, such as bending, twisting, cupping, and warping should be celebrated as wood’s natural tendency to adapt to it’s environment. Unlike other synthetic materials, wood stave is sourced from a previously live authentic tree unique unto itself, a valuable resource in the eco structure of our planet.

A tree is a living, breathing part of our environment, made of the same atomic stuff we are, a sort of shirt-tailed cousin, which survives consciously for years by continuously adapting to its environment.

Even following the harvesting of a tree’s wood, the wood’s independent slices fight for their right to continue to acclimate and survive, expressing their individuality and uniqueness.

That’s why designers, architects, and pretty much the rest of us love the look and feel of real wood. We appreciate the look of it, the design of the individual expression of the tree’s growth rings, and it makes you have a comfortable sense of being home in a virtual hug from Mother Nature.

When wood stave (natural slices of wood) is applied to a door core material, the wood will move to accommodate the environmental challenges and circumstances which it is presented with.
In the case of cracking wood stave doors, the surface crack is the nature of the wood to adjust to the tension of the door’s core. The wood is still trying to provide you with the best door ever, so it sacrifices the surface finish and moves to accommodate the needs of interior core of the door. A crack-resistant finish will result in the tension being spread over a larger surface area, developing a warped or cupped door which can be more problematic to deal with than a surface crack.

Natural wood stave doors will move, warp, bend, twist, and crack, unless they are uniquely engineered with the proper composite materials to result in a wood door that does not move.

Sing Core provides architects, custom door manufacturers, and millworks with the best structurally sound composite door core which is lightweight, insulated, dimensionally stable, and stronger than steel pound-for-pound. Properly laminated materials, including the application of the natural wood stave to the patented torsion box composite core in concert with patent pending straighteners, delivers to clients a natural wood stave door which can be guaranteed to remain warp-free, including a full structure warranty, for an unprecedented 50 years.

A cracked natural wood surface door is likely due to a moisture problem, which varies in intensity between interior wooden doors and exterior wooden doors. Any wood door needs to be properly acclimatized to avoid cracking and excessive movement, also contributing to a wood’s tendency to move would be considering the way in which the wood was sliced, cut, or sawn.

Wood stave is a much higher concept in wood-faced doors than wood veneer as wood veneer which is not susceptible to cracking or warping, it is very thin and cannot easily be repaired when slightly damaged. Wood stave is a thicker natural wood product which can easily be maintained using basic woodworking skills.

Sing Core Wooden Doors

Each professional Sing wooden door can be guaranteed to remain warp-free for 50 years, including a full structure warranty. This is why Sing Core wood doors are making such a huge impact on the door industry across the USA and abroad.

Any type or style of wood door can be made with Sing Core inside, such as exterior wooden doors, wooden barn doors, interior wood doors, wooden sliding patio doors, wood sliding room dividers, wooden French doors, wood stile and rail doors, just to name a few.

Patented Eco-friendly wooden doors with Sing Core inside are proudly made in the USA, using sustainable manufacturing methods using less energy, with responsible use of recycled and renewable resources, including natural wood fiber, producing little or no waste or loss of energy, leaving a negligible carbon footprint.

There is just no other way to make 20 ft. tall wooden doors that will not warp. Wood is a very difficult resource to use for anything over 7 ft. tall because of its tendency to move, especially in exterior wood doors. For instance a wood door that faces the elements on one side and the structure’s interior on the other is going to warp. That’s why no door company guarantees warp resistance of a wooden door for more than one year, that is, unless it has patented Sing Core inside.

So, how can you get wood doors with Sing Core inside? It’s easy, just go to your favorite architect, door manufacturer, mill work, or custom door company, and tell them what size door you want and be sure to ask for, “Sing Core inside.” We cannot sell or ship Sing Core doors directly to consumers or do it yourselfers, as we are the manufacturer supplying Sing Core door core only to door manufacturers and builders of custom doors.

Choose any available type of wood for your wooden doors with Sing Core inside, such as,

Large oversized wooden doors are the greatest hurdle facing architects and designers, because though there is little more impressive than a huge wooden door to catch your attention, so the bigger the better, but then there’s the issue with warping, which is a constant struggle for the owner to secure regular maintenance of such a beautiful wood door, likely at least seasonally.

Thanks to having Sing Core inside, you will never have to worry about warping wood doors again. While they are built to last for centuries, each professionally guaranteed Sing wooden door can be non-warping and include a full structure warranty for 50 years. No other Eco-friendly, lightweight, high strength wood door can have such a guarantee in the world.

And what if you’re looking to build a large door out of a material other than a natural wood grain? No problem, your doors could be made out of any available flat building material, such as aluminum doors, cement, concrete, fiberglass (FRP), glass, HPL, Kevlar, LVL, MDF, steel (cold rolled steel, steel diamond plate, galvanized steel, hot rolled steel, etc.) as well as the only unbreakable mirror doors, just to name a few.
