Doors in dramatic shapes and sizes, from arched to gothic to elliptical, you design the door that will enhance your homes existing architecture. Once you decide on the perfect door you can then add striking sidelights and transoms in stained or bevelled glass that can complete the visual impact of your entryway with the added bonus of bringing natural light into your home.
Installation should be considered. For one, the door components do not disassemble easily. The actual door is likely attached to the frames of the sidelights, or a joiner accommodates the door unit and the sidelights. The threshold of the door is likely one single unit under the door and the sidelights. Replacing either just the door or the sidelights, or the frame from the threshold, may cause real damage. When priming, pre-finishing or pre-glazing comes standard with the product, it adds magnetic appeal to remodelers and homeowners. Glazing ensures that glass is protected and easy to clean.
