The Andean Walnut also known as Tropical Walnut or Peruvian Walnut is a hard, durable wood highly prized in cabinetry, flooring, walls and other forms of decoration.
The wood is dark brown with blackish streaks. The grain is straight to wavy and sometimes curled. The texture is medium to fine and not always even.
The Andean Walnut features natural distress and blackish streak marks (sometimes confused with warm holes) which are all desired characteristics of this wood species and are not considered defects.
The natural distressing gives each door a unique look.

If you live in a severe climate or your entry receives a lot of direct sunlight from a southern or western exposure, an overhang right above the door is required per the manufacturer's warranty.
An overhang that protects the entire door from direct sunlight, rain and snow will increase the longevity of the door and will keep maintenance to a minimum.
If your entry is lacking an overhang or not adequately protected from direct sunlight and the element, please consider a fiberglass door instead.
At Doors4Home we offer a factory pre-hanging option. By selecting the pre-hanging option, you will receive a door hinged, prepped for handle and assembled in a frame (also called the door "jamb").
Factory pre-hanging ensures easy installation with a precise fit ready to install in the door opening, with no on-site assembly required.
This reduces construction time and lowers project cost. If the pre-hung door is also factory finished, this further reduces steps and cost in the overall construction process.
Each pre-hung door unit is weathertight and includes:
Doors are hung on rabbetted jambs kerfed (slotted) for weather-stripping.
Jamb's width: To measure the width of the jamb, open the door and measure the jamb.
Do not include any of the trim work or casing.

A standard milled brickmould is 2" wide and will match the jambs' wood species.
