In the never-ending quest for a unique entryway that sets their home apart and adds striking curb appeal, owners of high-end homes are clamoring for doors made out of woods that don't grow in their backyard. Tropical hardwoods like mahogany, cherry, and walnut, and even rarer woods like teak and ebony, offer colors, grain patterns, and distinctive characteristics that traditional woods like fir, pine, and oak can't match.

"What's happened is that people have wanted to diversify, personalize, do different things," says John Simpson, manager of new business development for Marvin Windows and Doors. "Customers are saying, 'Got anything different?' They don't want something that looks like their parents' house."

With builders and homeowners requesting entry doors made out of everything from eucalyptus and Honduran mahogany to white zebrawood, manufacturers are delivering.

Because there are no growing seasons in the tropics, the woods tend to have an interlocking grain pattern rather than the rings common in trees from cooler climates. And builders are taking advantage of the variety of hardwoods to create entrances that wow their clients.

"We feel that the entry door is the eye of the home," says Deborah Malone, president of JP Malone Construction, a custom home builder in Scottsdale, Ariz. "It's the tell-tale sign of what's to come."
