It all starts with our large inventory of products.
Every door is custom built to order. Since each door is custom built for you, we do not warehouse preassembled doors.2022 Full Line Catalog Featured Products Brochure
Prepare the Door Frame
When the door is ready to build, assembly tickets print at each work center to start the process. In the jamb prep area, we review and prepare the frame in which the door slab will live.
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.Exterior Jamb Option Guide Deadbolt Strike Jamb Prep Options
Prepare the Door Slab
We use our CNC machine to create custom doors with precision like no one else. The face of each door is prepared for locks, deadbolts, and lite inserts.
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 Slab Size Chart
Door Lites & Divider Bars
Associates pull the specified glass styles from inventory and insert them into the door. Custom simulated divided lites (SDLs) are also cut and fit for the door.
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.EnLiten Flush Glazed Designs Decorative Glass Designs
Associates join the door and frame to create the prehung unit.

Package & Deliver
The finished exterior door units are assembled, inspected for quality, and carefully packaged for shipment.
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.
