Wooden doors are most often used in custom or specialized design situations since they are easiest to manipulate. With the countless options (mahogany, side lights, transoms, decorative glass, etc.) you can custom design the specific look you want for your entryway. Another design advantage is that decorative transparencies such as glass are easier to install in wooden front doors.
A disadvantage to having a wooden exterior door is that over time, exposure to the elements can cause the wood to warp, resulting in a break in the door's air-sealing capabilities.
