Re: Door cards

Hi Chris.....mdf is far more stable than standard ply...unless you go for marine ply.......you can waterproof standard mdf by coating with varnish etc....or you could use the premium moisture resistant Medite board.....dont forget that you fit a plactic membrane between door and card.......Steve
