We hope today's blog finds everyone having a terrific summer thus far! Whether you've been hiking mountains or laying on the beach this summer, both the mountaintops and beaches have something in common. The commonality of both sun-beaten hills and salty-aired beaches is that Mahogany is the superior wood choice for these locations.
Mahogany is the finest wood selection if you live in a harsh climate or live close to the ocean. For example, the beautiful custom screen door shown below with the whale cutout was made for a customer's home on Nantucket island. This quaint beach community is very exposed to direct sun during the summer, sometimes snow in the winter, and salty air year-round. Naturally, Mahogany was the best selection for the Siasconset beach home. In climates like this, a dense wood like Mahogany, along with our mortise and tenon joinery gives you the highest quality screen door to take on mother nature.
Not only is this wood the strongest, it is arguably the most beautiful. The reddish-brown grain is an unmistakable characteristic of this gorgeous wood. The appearance, durability, and strength of Mahogany is enough to justify the extra cost of a screen door that can last you a lifetime... even in the harshest environments in the country!
