Craftsmanship - Glenview Doors

For centuries, natural wood has been used to create a perfect combination of beauty and durability. Each piece of wood is truly unique and naturally becomes the best choice for a sophisticated and individual look. Individual wood types have its own distinct personality and feel. Wood is also a practical choice. It is known for superb insulation qualities. When properly finished and maintained, wood is exceptionally durable and resistant to time and elements. Moreover, wood is a naturally renewable resource.

Modern Solid Wood Engineering Delivers the Best Performing Custom Wood Doors

Regardless of the material selected, we kiln-dry and hand match all of our wood to ensure uniform color and consistent performance. Our modern solid wood front doors are designed and engineered with advanced stile and rail components.

Solid Wood Door Structure

To enhance stability even further, the core of our mahogany doors contain the same solid mahogany species. For our engineered banded stiles and rails, each stile features a solid mahogany edge band. The engineered stiles and rails are stronger then single, solid wood pieces, reducing the possibility of the door warping or splitting. Our durable 3-ply wood panels will not twist, warp, shrink or expand.

In our finished series, the panel is completely prefinished and sealed on all six sides before being installed, and as the panels are free to float between fixed edges, there is no unfinished part of the panel that may show up with time. There are no nails that hold panels in place.

We encourage you to visit our showroom and recognize how professional stain stands above hand-applied ordinary dull finishes.
