Why Builders Choose Masonite Doors

The quality of your finished build can be impacted by the quality of the products you choose.

At National Lumber, we work with our builders to identify which products will best meet their needs. Today, we want to highlight one such manufacturer that has become the builder’s standard for interior doors (while also carving their own name in exterior doors). Today, let’s look at why builders choose Masonite.
