Wooden Doors

Wooden Doors are the basic, most used doors for rooms and as main doors. And why not, the front door of your home is the first impression a visitor gets. The first thing we grab when we arrive and the last thing we touch when we leave so its natural why many of us still like our doors to be made of wood.  The material’s warmth, durability and the many design options available makes it the ideal choice.

Wood Materials for the Doors

A solid core Wooden Door is the unanimous choice for the front door. For rooms, a hollow core Wooden Door is just nice. It’s good to understand the pros and cons of a solid core vs hollow core door

Wrought Iron Grilles
Classic Wooden Door
Nyatoh Wooden Door

Solid Core Door

Better with heat and sound insulation, since it embodies a solid piece of material

Better security against intruders and thieves, since these are difficult to break open

Pricier, but more suitable for exterior doors

Heavier, can withstand extra wear & tear and more durable against extreme weather conditions

Hollow Core Door

Air pockets inside allows more heat and sound to pass, so not as effective as solid core for insulation

Easier to break down, much weaker from a security standpoint

Less expensive than solid core

Lighter and succumb to weather conditions more easily, may need early replacement

Types of Wooden Doors in Singapore

At Grilles N Glass we deal in mainly in 3 types of the wood doors which are commonly found across Singapore, they are –

Solid Core Door

They are made or Nyatoh wood which is strong, resistant to denting and marring. Though Teak wood would set a higher standard in terms of durability, Nyatoh doors weather well for outdoor applications and is used as an alternative to Teak which tends to be more expensive. Solid core Nyatoh doors are commonly used as main entrance doors and take well to stain and polish.

Classic Doors

These provide a simple, elegant and cost-effective option. Available in a range of beautifully modelled front & back panels these are ideal for bedroom doors. These take on colors and varnish well, giving you the flexibility to match them with your room décor.

Veneer Doors

Veneer Doors offer a flat, consistent and uniform panel for doors, they are basically made of veneers (thin slices of wood) glued onto the core to give a neat finish. Due to their sleek looks and variety of designs and styles available, Veneer Doors are much sought after by homeowners nowadays. They tend to be a bit pricier than the contemporary doors though.

Fire Rated Doors

A Fire Rated (fire resistant) door is a door that is made specially to delay or prevent the spread of fire. These are often installed in public and office buildings but in Singapore these are mandated by HDB/BCA for residential units where the main door is along the fire escape route (i.e. opening into passageways and lift lobbies)
Fire Rated Doors are can only be installed by HDB licensed contractors such as Grilles N Glass. It entails applying for a permit. In terms of types and design we provide both the Varnish & Veneer styles.

Grilles N Glass has been fitting Wooden Doors for Singapore homes & offices since many years. All our door installations include good quality Door knobs/levers with a standard lock & key function.

Hats off to Mr Alex and his team, Kumar, Raju and Raki for installing window grilles. They did an excellent job! Great! After checking my kitchen grilles, Mr Alex raised concerns that removing the existing grilles could damage the tiles. However, he said that he will do his best to install the new grilles. His team did it! The workmanship was amazing. Thank you, Mr Alex and his team.

Alex is a very professional window contractor. Not the usual contractor. Before I contracted him, he honestly told me that he was not sure if he could fix my window as the aluminium bended quite badly. Through his experience and knowledge, he managed to get it fixed within 3 hours. If you need a window contractor, I would strongly recommend Alex and his team.

Alex was extremely professional throughout the process and provided information and advice without any pressure or obligation to use his services. We ended up purchasing a full set of grilles and windows (double-glazed casement and sliding) for the entire house around a year ago. During the installation process, Alex was punctual, very accommodating in terms of schedule, and also willing to make adjustments and provide replacements where needed. After around a year of usage, we are satisfied with the quality of the windows and grilles, and would recommend Alex/Grillesnglass if anyone is looking for windows/grilles.
Many thanks to Alex and his team for their great work on the casement window replacement and aluminum grilles for my 4-room resale HDB flat. Alex is very knowledgeable and goes out of his way to provide excellent service and after-sales support to his customers. His team demonstrated great expertise and skill in preserving my kitchen tiles and minimising the impact on the surrounding walls as I had done the windows installation after the tiling and plastering work had already been carried out. Highly recommend Alex and his team for the great value for money and high quality services.
Thank you Alex for the quality product, patience and great after sales service. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and relatives.

Got in touch with Alex after seeing many positive reviews online, and decided to engage him to supply and install our whole house windows and catproof grilles. Unlike other big names in the market who quoted high prices but were unable to demonstrate their worth, Alex provided us with fantastic soundproofing solutions for all our windows at a reasonable price. He was always very punctual for site visits and highly responsible throughout the process. Permit application with the authorities was always done on time, and his wife AJ was also very prompt in coordination and following up with us for subsequent installations or touchup work. His workers were also very careful with our flooring, making sure to lay protection before carrying out their works. All in all, my wife and I are extremely pleased with our beautiful windows and grilles, as well as the level of soundproofing. We would highly recommend Alex to anyone who are looking for serious and professional window contractors.

This is for a 4-room resale HDB kitchen window replacement. Decided to enquire with Alex after seeing many good reviews online. Unlike other contractors who were reluctant to come down for site-consultation before proceeding or very slow in response, Alex was quick to respond and agreed for free consultation even if we choose not to proceed. During consultation, he was sincere and patient with all our questions and recommended his solutions professionally. He also assured us that it would be done well, especially the hacking of wall tiles. On day of installation, Alex came down with his team. Once again, they assured us. Indeed, His team were professional and did a great job. After they left, I had couple of questions on the grilles and its rollers. Without hesitation, Alex answered them and sent his team down again to check on the same day. We are very happy with the results! Their services had been excellent! Highly recommend!
