Painted Wood or MDF?

Q: What is the difference between painted WOOD DOORS and painted MDF DOORS?

A: WOOD DOORS are built using 5 pieces (2-rails, 2-stiles & 1-centre panel) which create 4 joints when put together. Wood will naturally expand and contract throughout different seasons and humidity conditions in your home. When a wood door is painted, the paint covers the joints and depending on the humidity, the contraction of the wood can potentially crack the paint exposing the joint line. The lighter the paint colour the more visible the joint line. MDF DOORS are routed out of a solid piece of material and do not have any joints, so there is no potential for any visible joint lines through the paint.
