We decided years ago that we wanted to build the finest quality screen doors you can buy. All natural wood screen doors with wide stiles and rails, doors, they need to look substantial, feel solid, and be available in traditional and fun designs.
We build our Custom Collection wood screen doors using high quality hardwoods. Poplar is cost effective and stable. But if you want a door that can last for centuries in all weather conditions, we recommend our doors built in true African Mahogany. And Red Oak is also an option, many medieval doors still exist today that were made of this heavy oak.
Our Budget Series Screen doors are made of either verticle grain fir or clear cedar. Both are very stable if finished properly. Fir would be the better choice to paint.
No matter what style of home you have, there is an Easy-Change Door that will capture its beauty. Our large selection of designer grille inserts can also add distinction to your home.
Our most popular "custom" Wood to use is African Mohogany. It is a very stable wood, often used on ships, and on caribbean islands because it will not twist, warp, or rot as easily as other woods.
Of couse all woods will last a lifetime if they are properly maintained, but for some of us the job never seems to be a priority.
