Glenview Doors Partners with Hines Lumber to Expand Distribution of Euro Entry Doors
Glenview Doors is pleased to announce a partnership with Hines Supply as the newest distributor of exceptional mahogany front entries.
Selected by Hines Supply for their unique technology, quick availability, and remarkable durability, Glenview Doors entries are a favorite in the Midwest. Architects and builders love them for their high-end look and easy installation. Homeowners love them for their beauty, longevity, and low maintenance. Committed to bringing its customers the best, Hines Supply is a proud distributor of Glenview Doors’ Euro entry doors.
Euro Doors by Glenview are designed to resist common issues that typical solid wood front doors experience in Chicago and throughout the Midwest. The region’s climate is rough on doors. Fluctuating temperatures and humidity levels, harsh winds, frequent rain, and heavy snow take their toll on wood. Exposure to the elements causes warping, splitting, and cracking, especially in entries with little to no overhang.
Pete Rood, a long-time Hines Supply outside sales professional, believes Euro technology from Glenview Doors is among the best options for Chicagoland entryways. “We chose Glenview Doors for our customers because the Euro construction removes problems associated with typical solid wood doors while maintaining all the benefits,” says Rood.
Euro Doors are engineered with an advanced composite technology that makes them durable, stable, and incredibly insulating. Glenview’s unique door sandwich design includes stiles and rails made from solid European woods; an insulating core that guards against expansion and contraction; and veneers in Mahogany, American Walnut, and other fine woods. The result is a perfectly engineered front entrance that maintains the elegance and feel of solid wood but removes a lot of the common issues experienced with other solid wood products.
Pat Briody, the General Manager of Hines Supply Wheaton, believes Glenview’s unique technology is a compelling value proposition for his builders, architects, and homeowners. “Glenview Doors’ ability to offer a warranty on a solid wood door without the need of an overhang, combined with their ability to ship within 10 business days, makes it a go-to for our outside sales teams,” says Briody. “It’s great. It doesn’t even matter if the entry has an overhang. A warranty like this is unheard of in our business. Plus, the doors arrive pre-hung and pre-finished. High quality, easy to install, very low maintenance. Our customers love them.”
Dan Kittilsen, president of DJK Custom Homes and longtime Hines Supply client, agrees. “We use Glenview Doors’ products to differentiate our builds from the rest of the market,” says Kittilsen. “Glenview’s Euro Doors come standard in 2 ¾” thickness. Not only are they roughly double the thickness of a standard door, but they’re also so finely finished and weather resistant. Realtors constantly walk through our finished entries and then go back to check out what they just walked through. A solid 2 ¾” thick slab gives you a truly unique door that sets the tone for the rest of the home.”
