Door Construction

Built to Your Exact Specifications

Every TruStile door is made to order, each built to the exact style and size you require. TruStile still builds its MDF doors using traditional stile and rail construction, a method usually reserved for wood doors. Our solid MDF doors are never routed or filled with cheap core materials like those of our competitors. Instead, each door is constructed to provide superior, architecturally correct details and an unequaled finishing surface.

Perfect for Painted Doors

Why paint an expensive wood door? MDF doors are ideal for painted applications and make an affordable alternative to wood doors. The super-refined MDF TruStile uses provides a smoother painting surface than pine, poplar or lower-grade MDF alternatives. Each MDF door has been engineered for maximum stability and durability. They won't shrink, crack, expand or warp when exposed to environmental conditions.

TruStile MDF doors have been SCS certified to contain 75% recycled content — qualifying them for LEED credits on Green building projects. Our use of low VOC primers and adhesives keeps levels of emissions far below standards. To further reduce emissions, no-added formaldehyde MDF may be specified for those who demand it.

That’s why TruStile® pioneered the use of MDF (medium density fiberboard) as a preferred material for painted door applications due to its advantages over alternative materials like natural wood.
