Wood Species

Wood is unique in that no two pieces are identical.  Each piece of wood has its own distinctive personality, which stems from its grain-pattern, color, and texture.

While doors are displayed in Fir, Cedar, or Knotty Alder, any door can be built in any species at your request.

Most clients select VG Fir for stain-grade applications due to its attractive color, grain structure, and lower cost compared to exotic hardwoods. If you’re looking to paint your door, Paint Grade will be the lowest cost material available.

Embrace the exclusivity of wood by selecting the species that best suits your tastes and budget. Please ask your B.C. Door representative for a quote on the specific species you are interested in.
