Rot-Resistant Doors. Endura's FrameSaver Door Frame is solid wood except for a 4-inch-long piece of composite finger-jointed to the bottom; this material, the maker says, is impervious to rot and insects and doesn't wick moisture. The entire frame is coated with a 180-day primer and comes with a fully transferable lifetime warranty. It's sold in standard sizes for entry and garage doors (mulls and brickmold are also available). Entry doors with the feature cost 5 percent to 10 percent more than doors with traditional wood frames. Endura Products, 800/334-2006, enduraproducts.com
