Traditional Entry Doors

Entry Doors

Steel doors have energy-efficient foam core insulation and are fully weather stripped by the manufacturer. They're highly resistant to shrinking,swelling and warping. Their tough,steel construction will withstand years of extreme weather conditions with minimum maintenance.Exterior Door AccentsThe doors can be purchased with pre-drilled door knob and lockset holes,making installation even easier. Steel doors come pre-primed and ready to paint.

Fiberglass doors offer the same energy-saving and easy installation qualities as steel doors. Fiberglass doors have wood-grain texture molded into the door so they give the appearance of a real wood door when painted or stained. Their high-quality composite construction makes these doors resistant to all sorts of weather as well as scratches and dents. These are an excellent choice for extreme climates and high-traffic entrances.

Wood doors offer the most traditional look. The familiar look and feel of a well-crafted wooden door sends an inviting message of home and hearth. The substantial weight of a wooden door adds a sense of security and sturdiness to your home. These doors may be painted or stained for a natural,warm appearance. Wooden doors are usually made using frame and panel construction to counteract the effects of climatic or seasonal changes.

Looks like what we refer to as "jamb up"

Alumin/vynal bulb/flap weatherstripping that comes in a "weatherstrip jamb-up kit"--2pcs 7feet long for side jamb, 1@4foot for head jamb. You hacksaw pieces to your size. The long leg is hole pre punched, and kit comes with a small bag of #6pan head phillips 1/2in metal screws which we promptly discard in favor of chisel point selp-tapping short screws when used on metal door frames. The included screws work for wood, but must be drilled with 1/8in bit for steel jambs. You can cut to any size for other uses.
Door jamb up weatherstripping kits can be had at Commercial Builing Hardware in yellow pages, maybe box fixit stores still sell a flimsyer version [ alum pcs are of much thinner ga on the ones I've seen at those places ]
