Entry Slab Doors (cont.) Any exterior door can be use at the front entry of a home. But entry doors usually include decorative elements, such as glass panels set in a border of brass caming. Slab doors are the door alone, as distinguished from prehung doors which are sold with jamb, hinges, trim and threshold attached. Installation times for entry doors will be up to 50% faster when an experienced carpenter has the use of a router, door jig and pneumatic nailer.
