New and Restored
Entry and Storm Doors
It is hard to find solid wood doors these days. They are either foam core with a wood frame and steel or fiberglass skin. Especially with older homes, replacing the door changes the character of the home. Round Top entry ways make the options even more limited. This is where I hope to bring more options to home owners and contractors.
I offer several options for those with Round Top entry ways for the main and storm doors. The first is restoration of the entry door. I can refinish and/or repair the door and the door frame. While I find that most wooden doors simply need to be restored, if the door is too far gone or if you want to change the look of the door, I can help you with the design of a new one.
In the past I have refinished doors and, where needed, re-veneered doors. In addition to restoring the finish of your wood door, I make all necessary repairs to fully restore your door to its original beauty (i.e., repair damaged window mullions, repair hinges and locksets).
Storm Doors back in the early 20th century were made from wood. While these are beautiful, they require regular care and maintenance (a fresh coat of paint or varnish every couple of years). If your door is in need of a facelift, I am happy to restore your wooden storm door. Most doors that appear to need replacing can actually be restored.
During the mid-20th century, many homeowners opted to replace their wooden storm doors with aluminum ones. While low maintenance, an aluminum storm door simply doesn't have the beauty of a wooden door, nor does it fit the architecture of these homes. I can help you restore the original look of your home by designing a new wooden storm door for your entry way.
