These doors have unique appeal because each one is custom made. The style, proportions and sizes can be tailored to match existing door and frame. Choose one of our styles or supply your own design/picture. Combination screen/storm doors are also available. Interchangeable wood glass inserts are custom made with wood stiles in 4 ,six or nine lite panes . The doors are machined from solid 1 3/8" #1 common or Select grade Ontario White Pine (Clear Pine, Fir, Red Cedar, Spanish Cedar also avaiable) and are made with "mortise and tennon" Joinery. The fretwork is hand sawn on the band or scroll saw, and the spindles are turned on the lathe. All in which have substance. One person makes and assembles the entire door. No finger-jointed wood or pencil thick spindles are used. Remember, these doors are made the old-fashioned way on historic equipment that dates as far back as the 1870's. We make them like they used to!
Proper installation and finishing will provide many years of enjoyment , not to mention the increased value of your home.
We can build many different types of Wood Doors for interior or exterior applications. If you are missing a door and need one made to match other doors in your home maybe we can help you.
Here is one combination door crafted here at Hoffmeyer's that is now located in Waterford, Virginia.
From June, 2003
Here is a picture of the screen door finished and installed. We love it. As you can see it's the most finished part of the back of the house! ( all in due time). The door visually lengthens our center hall by 50% and lets in much needed light. It's the best part of the house!
