There is a large variety of doors that can be installed for a home or business. Different doors are used based on function, laws and regulations, security, price, etc. Below is a list of common door types:
Bi Fold doors are designed to be used in closets, pantries or as a partition between rooms. They also make excellent additions for a deck, patio or other area where you would want an easy large opening to the outdoors. Bi Fold doors come in pairs, normally either two or four doors but sometimes more depending on the design.
Bypass / Wardrobe
Wardrobe doors are designed to be used in closets. They are similar to a Bifold door (see above) but do not fold. They slide past each other on rails or tracks. These commonly have mirrors embedded inside the doors.
Not exactly a "normal" door, but still a door... These small doors are normally installed by the homeowner to easily let their pets in and out of their home. These range widely from a simple framed hole with a flap to electronically controlled doors that only allow your pet through because of their coded collar.
An interior door that has been designed to operate as a whole door or as two seperate halves (cut horizontally.) These are commonly installed as kitchen doors or in restaurants.
Entry doors are the most important door in a home. They are the door everyone sees when they enter the home and often are accompanied by sidelites and transoms. They come in either single or double doors. Our entry units are built by hand to your specifications by our gifted craftsmen. Entry door units are made from steel, fiberglass or wood and always have a solid core for security reasons. For more information please visit the exterior door section.
Exterior / Storm
Exterior doors are solid or hollow doors that are designed to weather the harsh environment and are used wherever a door connects to the outside of a home. These doors are used to create entry units (see above.) Common options include weatherstripping, thresholds and fire ratings (see fire doors below for more information.) Storm doors can also be installed over an exterior door with options such as shutters, windows, screens, etc. For more information see our exterior door section.
Fire doors are special doors that have been rated to withstand fire and smoke conditions. They help stop the spread of fire in a home or building. Some fire doors are specifically made with fire-resistant materials while others are a general door that has passed the fire door specifications to be rated as a fire door. Fire doors by law are required to be self-closing and are normally used as the door between a garage and the home.
French / Patio
French doors are used between rooms or as a large door unit opening to a patio or balcony. They swing open and are normally made with large windows and elegant designs.
Industrial / Commercial
Industrial doors include rolling steel doors, freezer doors, truck and vehicle doors, revolving doors, etc. Since they are used in commercial environments they are often made of steel or aluminum and are built to last a long time. For more information please visit our commercial door section.
Interior doors are usually hollow and are some of the most economical doors you can buy. They are made to be used between rooms and come in all sorts of styles.
