Wood-framed doors are becoming increasingly common in Zimbabwe, experts warn

Wood-frame doors are now being used in many countries in Africa and Asia, but it’s the popularity of these doors that is causing some concern. 

Zimbabwe is one of those countries and it’s no surprise that they are becoming more common in the country.

The country is known for their natural beauty and ruggedness and the country is also renowned for its timber and agriculture.

But with the country facing a population boom, it has seen an increase in the number of wooden doors.

Zimbabwe has over 300 million people and the majority of them are ethnic Zimbabes who have settled in the south-western parts of the country to escape the drought.

They have a strong affinity for wooden doors and are keen to have a home built for them. 

It’s believed that the Zimbaba’s love for these doors has led to a rise in the demand for wood-framing, and more than half of the buildings that are built in Zimbabwe are wooden. 

The demand for wooden wood doors is driven by the demand of home buyers, as it is a popular choice for homes.

In 2017, the number one request was for wooden door-tops that are made of timber.

A survey by the National Rural Housing Foundation found that nearly half of Zimbabweans are willing to spend up to $30,000 on the purchase of a wood-frame door. 

“People are more aware of the quality of the timber and they want to preserve the natural beauty of the land and trees. 

When you have a wood frame door you don’t have to worry about the size and the finish of the wood because you can use a different wood for it,” said Gweedo Gweeto, a professor of architecture at the University of Zimbabwe.

“It’s a bit more difficult for the average Zimbabwean to build a home with it but we’ve seen a rise of demand for the wood frame doors.”
