All The Right Features
A Medallion door is our finest wood door delivering the elegance and beauty of a stained real-wood door or a carefully crafted paint-grade door for your custom paint finish.
Our stain grade doors are available in our standard, select wood species that include Red Grandis, Sapele Mahogany, Spanish Cedar, and Western Red Cedar.
Custom wood species are easily accommodated depending upon your design and the availability of appropriate sizes. Just ask for the species of your choice.
Need a custom size door? No problem. A wood door is easily customized to fit any size opening.

Our standard Medallion construction includes:
- Standard core frame is an LVL (Laminated veneer lumber) stile and rail frame with a urethane insulated foam core and smooth, exterior-grade Mahogany Luan panels pressure laminated on both sides for added strength. The frame has a calculated R-value of 9.1.
- Hardwood overlay face frames are coped together with hidden pocket hole and screw joinery and are high-pressure bonded to the core frame for tight seams.
- Simulated divided lites that feature both exterior and interior grilles with profiled edge milling for a rich, architectural detail.
- Window muntins interlock together with the sub-frame.
- Standard window glass is Double-Strength clear glass.
- The frame overlay is milled with profiled Ovalo edges to add elegant detailing. Square edges are a no-cost alternative edge finish.
- Fastening to the core frame is NOT done thru the front face, which eliminates exterior fastener filler marks.
- A square kerf accentuates the look of the door style selected by defining the swing, bifold or trifold look of the door.
- Bottom rail is designed to shed water away to help preserve the wood frame and panels.
- Bottom astragal is an EPDM rubber mounted in an aluminum retainer.

Our Medallion door is a hand-crafted wood door. Exposure to the sun, wind, and water will impact the care your Medallion door requires.
Long exposures to southern or western sunlight and significant wind will thin the top coat over time. Wind wears it away, and sunlight’s UV rays will break down the top coat, effectively thinning it out. Left alone, the top coat can be removed/destroyed by these natural elements in a very short time.
Paint finishes will weather like the paint on your house or other outdoor furniture and structures. The better the paint is applied, the longer the life of the paint finish.
Stain and faux stain painted finishes have 2 layers of clear protective material coating on top of the stain layers when they leave our factory. The top coats must be maintained and periodically replaced or refreshed in order to prevent more significant maintenance work.
- We recommend an annual inspection to ensure your paint finish or top coat (on stained and faux stain paint finishes) continues to provide an uninterrupted and sealed coating to prevent the intrusion of moisture.
- Paint finishes: Follow the instructions from your paint manufacturer for touch-up and general maintenance. Check out our Care & Maintenance page if you had a factory-applied paint finish.
- Stain finishes: We recommend that you reapply at least one coat of a clear, marine-grade polyurethane finish every two years.
- Visit the Care & Maintenance page for more details.
