Wood Exterior Slab Doors Exterior doors are usually 1-3/4" thick and solid core – a thin veneer laid over a frame but with foam or composition board filling the door cavity. Flush doors are smooth and flat, with no decorative treatment. Slab doors are the door alone, as distinguished from prehung doors which are sold with jamb, hinges, trim and threshold attached. Installation times for slab doors will be up to 50% faster when an experienced carpenter has the use of a router, door jig and pneumatic nailer.
