Doors rely on strong joints and proper wood selection to remain functional over time. The mortise and tenon is the only joint that will stand up to daily use and it’s the only joint we use in our rail and stile doors. In order for a door to remain true and flat, the lumber it’s made of needs to resist warp and twist. For a quality door, this rules out many of the wood types offered by manufacturers who accept a certain rate of failure when using lower cost materials.¬†With this in mind, we design doors and windows with full, true mortise and tenon joinery, weather stripping and gaskets of the highest quality, and finishes that withstand the elements and are easy to maintain.
