How Important is a Functional Custom Wine Cellar Door Constructed and Installed by an Expert in Washington, DC?

Preserving wine’s desirable characteristics is the primary purpose of most people who invested in a wine cellar. Wine collecting is an expensive hobby. Therefore, it is imperative that you spend time and money in building a wine room that will keep them safe for many years to come.

Before your wines reach their peak maturation, you must keep them in a space with stable conditions. If you want to enjoy the true bouquet of your favorite vintages, you must store them in a wine room equipped with an efficient wine refrigeration system. In addition to that, your wine cellar must also have an airtight seal.

Sealing and insulating Your Custom Wine Cellar Door: What are the Benefits?

At Harvest Custom Wine Cellars and Saunas, we make sure that every wine room we build has correct insulation to prevent air leakage. Keep in mind that your wine cellar door must also be tightly sealed and insulated to help achieve a stable environment essential for the graceful aging of your wines.

A custom wine cellar door built by a professional will not only prevent wine damage; it will also save you money on energy bills. How? A wine room door with poor insulation will force your cooling system to work harder to achieve the ideal wine storage conditions, resulting in higher energy consumption.

Exterior Grade Custom Wine Cellar Doors Manufactured by Specialists in Washington, DC

To ensure that no warm air enters and no cold air escapes the cellar, we use exterior grade doors in all of our custom wine cellar projects in Washington, DC and the surrounding areas to ensure that every entryway can withstand the humid conditions in the refrigerated wine cellar.

A wine cellar door made of a poor material will result in warping, causing varying humidity levels and temperature fluctuations. All of our doors are constructed with 1 ¾” in thickness.

Another way to seal the entrance to your wine cellar is by making sure that it is equipped with sealing components. To ensure that there is no gap around your door, we install weather stripping on all the edges and along their jambs.

We also add an automatic door bottom to prevent cold air loss. This door component helps seal your wine cellar by shutting the door automatically when someone forgets to close it after entering or leaving the room.

Insulation of Doors: a Crucial Step in Custom Wine Cellar Construction

At Harvest Custom Wine Cellars and Saunas, we use the LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber) technology in door construction. This process will increase your door’s durability, stability, and strength. It involves connecting multiple layers of thin wood using adhesives. The wood produced is highly resistant to shrinking and warping.

Additionally, the LVL technology also provides better insulating properties to your door. A wine room with better insulation will prevent environmental factors from interfering with the refrigeration unit’s cooling efficiency.

Nowadays, we still use Mortise and Tenon, which is a traditional technique in manufacturing doors. This process involves joining and interlocking the two components of the door (Mortise and Tenon) to create corners with maximum durability.

For glass wine cellar doors, we use dual paned and thermally insulated glass panels to help prevent condensation from forming inside your cellar. The two glass panes are joined together, leaving a small space filled with gas to minimize heat transfer.
