Can you make custom size screen doors?
Yes, custom size screen doors are our specialty! Please call us at (800) 404-8279 and talk to one of our screen door experts.
For our Premium Series, any size door up to 44" wide and 96" tall can be crafted to meet your specific requirements. Custom size quotes are available upon request and may incur additional build and shipping charges. If your door exceeds FedEx size limitations (max 89" high x 36" wide) or for multiple doors, we can ship LTL motor freight shipments to your home, business or nearest shipping terminal for pickup.
For our Standard Series, custom sizes may be available up to 8 feet tall and 44 inches wide, depending on the style chosen. Again, if your door exceeds FedEx size limitations, you will also have additional shipping and crating charges.
|Note: All custom sized doors have warranty limitations.|
How long will it take to get my custom screen door?
That is a great question and one we don't take lightly. Although each door is handmade and good things take time, we know you are excited and/or need your door as soon as possible. During most of the year, we can have your door made and out of our shop in 1-2 weeks. However, during our busy periods, it may run from 2-4 weeks. Just know, we will always be honest and do our best to meet your timelines. Do note that once your custom screen door leaves our shop in Whitefish, Montana, it may take up to 3-7 days for it to arrive to your destination.
Can I order more than one door online or do I need to call?
Yes, you may order multiple doors online if the criteria meets our shipping format. In most cases, we can save you money by talking through our shipping options and see what best fits your needs and timeframe. So please call and talk to one of our experts.
How much does it cost to ship a wood screen door?
We typically see our doors shipped to most areas of the country for $90 to $180 via Fed Ex. We know that is a wide range, but there are so many factors that come into play even outside of where you are. Our doors are made from solid hardwoods with absolutely no fillers, so they are heavy and beautiful. The weight varies by the door style and is between 32-55#, but the oversize charges by the freight companies are what adds up. We use our exclusive packaging system to keep the size and weight for a single door within the Fed Ex home delivery specifications. Our goal is to get it there safe, fast and as affordable as possible. Multiple door orders can be shipped via motor freight for additional cost savings. For more details see our shipping and receiving information.
Do you make screen doors for French Doors?
Yes! Two doors and an astragal are required (an astragal is a strip of wood that stops one door from swinging past the other). If you need an astragal, you may purchase it from the drop-down option when ordering your pair of French screen doors.
Are your screen doors handed?
No, you can hinge our doors on either side.
However, a few select styles of hinges we offer are "handed" and require you to specify the handing of your doorway. You can use the chart below to find the handing of your existing door.
How thick are your doors?
Premium and Standard Series doors are 1 1/8" (1.125) thick.
What is your screen made of?
We use charcoal-colored fiberglass mesh in our Premium and Standard Series screen doors. You can order any door with our Black Fiberglass mesh screen at no additional charge, or choose to upgrade to the "No See Um" or Super Screens instead.
Can you make a screen door with a dog / pet door?
Can you make porch screens?
Yes, we do porch screens for your screened in porch! One option is to design your porch around doors connected together in a pre-planned configuration. The more traditional way is to order custom size screens to fit your opening.
To see pictures of screened in porches we have worked on, see our Photo Gallery and scroll to the bottom of the page.
What kind of wood do you use?
We take great pride in sourcing only the highest quality wood species from reputable sources who care about the environment like we do. We use Fir and Cedar for our Standard Series doors and Poplar, Oak, and Mahogany for the Premium Series. In fact, with Mahogany getting more scarce and expensive, we are testing doors with a species, Sapele, that has all the characteristics of African Mahogany but sustainable and cheaper.
To learn more about the various wood species we offer, please see our Wood Screen Doors page.
Does the screen door come stained / painted / varnished?
We do not offer any of our doors stained, painted, or varnished.
All doors are shipped from our factory raw and ready to be finished. Wether you are choosing to stain or paint your door, keep in mind that some wood varieties accept these finishes better than others.
Fir, Poplar and Mahogany are the most paintable. However, we use stain-grade wood for all of our doors.
For more information of finishing, please review our finishing instructions.
Do your screen doors come with storm panels?
Our screen doors can and do accommodate storm panels. However, our doors are sold with screens only. We do not provide storm panels.
If you want storm panels you can purchase them from your local glass shop. When you receive our screen doors, remove the screen inserts, take them to your local glass shop, and tell them you would like tempered storm panels made the same size as the screens. This way you can be assured the storm inserts will be the right size and the frame will fit our screen doors. Tempered inserts typically cost from $70 - $100 depending on what part of the country you are in.
Do you work with builders and contractors?
Yes! We love working with contractors, so don't hesitate to give us a call to find out more about our special incentives.
What is the Montana Screen Doors / Screendoors.com warranty?
Montana Screen Doors wants our customers happy and satisfied and stand behind our products. Your custom screen door is built to last! We only use the finest hardwoods and products and build them the old-fashioned way- by hand, using time-honored techniques. Our door builders are highly skilled and take pride in each and every door they make and ship them to you with our patented packaging to insure its safe arrival. As discussed in our shipping, receiving and finishing tabs, you will find all the information you need to properly install and maintain your door for years to come.
However, because our products may be exposed to exterior conditions, they will experience normal wear and tear associated with finished exterior wooden products and hardware. Your door is made with solid wood and sent to you unfinished to allow you to finish it to perfectly match and become a focal point of your home. To insure its beauty, it is your responsibility to follow through with the recommended wood choices for your location and/or application and our guidelines for storing, installing and finishing. Even with our most diligent care in wood selection and workmanship and your attention to detail in all aspects of receiving and finishing, natural wood materials can falter. Montana Screen Doors guarantees our materials and craftsmanship against any defects (warping and joint failure) for 2 years. If a problem occurs you must submit proof of purchase and photos to us. Our service team will evaluate the product and determine whether or not a replacement or repair is necessary.
Please review our entire warranty for complete information.
