A great way to add comfort and security to your home is a new door. We offer great installation and some amazing door vendors, many linked to this page, who have some great door products to offer you and your home.
For Exterior Doors we recommend a fully pre-hung door. That is a door with jambs, threshold, and weatherstripping all built in one unit that is ready to hang. They run from $200 up into the thousands depending on the type of material and the type of glass utilized. This Mahogany beauty above on the right with sidelites and the transome window is about 8 grand as pictured. That's a great reason to think fiberglass.
Most doors are hung on a 4 9/16" jamb, but 5 1/4",and 6 5/8" jambs are also used on occasion. They come pre-drilled for deadbolt and door knob, with hinges included, but no hardware as far as handles and locks. Make sure to get new locks for your new door. There will also probably be some materials necessary to complete the install. We can provide you a materials list or bring standard materials with us at the time of your install. Most doors will require new interior casing, and either parting stop or other wood to full in the gaps on the exterior, if not brickmold and/or 1 X 2 or 4 exterior casing in select pine or rough cedar.
Most front doors are 36" wide, most back doors are 32" wide. The door units themselves are 81 1/2" tall with jambs and threshold. We are proud to offer an extensive line of tall doors in eight foot (8') heights up to 98" with all new door frames, threshold and weather stripping.

Doors with grids are available in almost every door style and type with the exception of blinds between the glass doors or stained glass type doors.

This picture is about installation. A new french door is a great thing as long as the installation is up to par. The new wood and trim on this patio enclosure says a great deal about the homeowner, the installer who hung it and even the dog who's door is at the end under the window. Would you have known how to trim out this patio enclosure? Would the average window and door guy? Probably not. Thirty years of experience in very high end homes for retrofit replacement is as tiny niche of remodeling and home improvements but it's one that I'm glad to be a part of. If skill, craftsmanship, quality of product and work as well as value and longevity, matter to you, we are the door installation contractor that you should get to know today!Flush Glazed French Door Observations
For the longest time I thought every french door had an ugly plastic frame and screws on the inside to hold it together. If you were lucky it would have some screw cover caps to put in the holes but those usually didn't fit, didn't look right or just fell out. Whatever the case may be, they were ugly. Go look at the Home Depot and it will refresh your memory. Our Doors have Low E Glass with Argon Gas and are four times more energy effecient than a wood door. Two inches wider and six inches taller a glass size means more light and a better look. We're very proud of the products we find and endorse and this is a great one if you're considering a french door. I think there is no better door and it's amazingly affordable as well. Not much more than the cheaper option adding just a few hundred dollars to the total cost of a door project.
