Lifetime Features

TIMELESS DESIGNS for lasting value and appeal!

PREMIUM 1-1/8" THICK, kiln-dried, solid wood door frames (no finger joints or short pieces) with 1" thick solid wood decorative components! Front and back decorative Mouldings together add 1" to the standard 1-1/8" frame thickness for an overall thickness of 2-1/8".

FRAME, including Moulding, is 5" wide at top and sides, leaving a 3-7/8" wide flat space for hardware (not included) on the front and 3-3/8" on the back. Bottom frame with Moulding is 9" tall, leaving a 7-7/8" flat space on the front and 7-3/8” on the back.

Mortis & Tenon drawingMORTISE & TENON FRAME JOINTS with lock-pin construction! Wooden lock-pins (like those found in the very finest furniture) assure it is nearly impossible for our door frames to separate, as each frame joint is quite literally locked into place!

RAISED FRONT and BACK MOULDINGS duplicate those found on the most expensive entry doors. Together these mouldings add about 1" to overall door thickness. See photos.

SCREEN PANELS (included) fit snugly behind decorative back mouldings. Secured by brass screws, these back mouldings neatly cover the metal frames of the screen panels. Replacement screen panels are locally available, since we use standard construction for our screen panels.

TEMPERED SAFETY GLASS STORM PANELS (optional) can easily replace screen panels on a seasonal basis. We use only tempered safety glass. In the very unlikely event the glass is broken, it will shatter into small pellets. (We've tested it with hammer blows with no damage!)

HINT damage by kids or pets to the lower screened portion of your door is a possibility, order a door design that includes a center push bar. This will separate your screen/glass areas into top and bottom sections. Since the glass faces in, you can leave the bottom glass in year round to protect the door from damage, while still enjoying fresh air through the top screened section!

PAINTING AND CLEANING! When installed behind our decorative back mouldings, screen or storm panels appear (and are) very permanent. However, since these back mouldings are secured with brass screws, these panels are quickly removed for easy cleaning or periodic repainting.

The Folks at Vintage Woodworks

PS - We have Vintage Woodworks Screen/Storm Doors on both the front and back of our own house. Returning home, greeted by our doors, we’re reminded of words from an earlier Vintage Woodworks Catalogue... “as shall be most pleasant to the eye, and uplifting to the spirit.” We do find our doors uplifting to our spirits, and wonder how we ever managed in spring and summer without the fresh air they now provide. To hear little birds singing, and smell the freshness of a spring morning... that’s almost heaven!
