Looking for Hardware?
One of the hardest decisions to make when buying or replacing doors is to choose what hardware you will want to use. Below are some Facts & Questions that may help you when deciding what hardware you should use for your new door.
Here are some FAQs you should know before buying hardware:
What is the size of the door(s) to be replaced or the intended entrance size?
(hint: there is no such thing as a “standard” door)
Do you want the new doors to be installed on the existing door frame or do you want a new frame & trim?
People select a new frame because either their existing frame is old and beaten up or because they would like the frame/trim to be the same wood as the doors and be stained to match.
How exposed is the door to the elements? Is there a large overhang?
What direction does the door face?
We love wood doors but if they will not be adequately protected by a suitable overhang then you may want to consider our composite doors.
Do you have your own contractor or installer?
We are delighted to work with your own contractor to ensure that you have exactly the right door(s) for your project. We are also happy to help you to arrange installation (we want this process to be easy for you).
If you have a photograph of your house that you can bring with you that is often helpful in describing what you would like to achieve. If you have seen a door that you particularly like then please bring in a picture – if we don't already stock that door we could get one built to match it!
