All our swing out, slider or slab doors start with the same proprietary core frame. The next consideration is the selection of material for the exterior of your door, that includes:

  • Wood Composite that relies on Extira and Tricoya to provide a long lasting, superior paint-grade door exterior.
  • Real wood – select from our standard woods or order a custom wood species.
  • Vinyl offers a low maintenance option with the ability to withstand harsh environments
  • Composite overlay face also offers a low maintenance alternative to wood and can be finished in a Faux Stain paint finish that looks like wood.
  • Edges are banded with material that matches your door overlay face.
