Step 1

Inventory

Every door is custom built to order. Since each door is custom built for you, we do not warehouse preassembled doors.

Prepare the Door Frame

Consider upgrading to a low-maintenance jamb for better protection from the sun. Dura-Tech jambs are wrapped with a PVC film great for paint and stain, requires minimal upkeep from the homeowner and is backed by an industry leading warranty.

Step 3

Prepare the Door Slab

Each door we build is prepped in this step and our machinery offers a tighter tolerance than others. Warranties are also maintained even after a cutdown.

Door Lites & Divider Bars

Traditional lite inserts offer a wide variety of decorative glass styles and sizes and are complete with a scroll or flat frame surrounding the glass. EnLiten Flush-Glazed doors are constructed with glass built directly into the door creating an airy, open feeling in the home with larger daylight openings.

Step 7

Package & Deliver

Each prefinished door unit is photographed during the QC process. We thoroughly package prefinished and multi-units with foam, full coverage cardboard, and apply handles for careful handling. If the prefinished unit requires a Multipoint Lock, our team installs the handle so it is ready to go at the jobsite. Every door unit is securely strapped to the truck using corner protectors and rope. The units are then delivered to the dealer from a Palmer-Donavin air ride trailer.
