This homeowner wanted to avoid the possibility of disturbing the EFIS / Stucco on their home. The original transom and sidelights were left intact. We installed this textured fiberglass door from the Therma-Tru Rustic Collection within the existing system. The new door was cut shorter and it's frame planed down so it would slip into the confines of the available space. It was a snug fit. ... See MoreSee Less

This is the Carriage House Museum in Story City. To stay in keeping with the building methods of the period, these 8' doors are face frame mounted. During business hours the exterior doors are open to welcome guests. The rest of the time they are kept closed to eliminate damaging UV rays. This was a fun project as it was out of the ordinary and the setting is unique. ... See MoreSee Less

This foam insulated door replaced the original hollow core door installed on this home in 67'. It has on oak textured woodgrain stained to resemble the existing woodwork. The initial plan was to reinstall the original 3/4 glass wood storm door but when it was removed we discovered excessive rot and had to scrap that idea. ... See MoreSee Less

This walnut and ebony door beckons your guests to come inside. There is no need to stain these hardwoods when a clear coat let's their true beauty show through. No entry is complete without a lockset that enhances the design of the door. ... See MoreSee Less

The shot on the left depicts a double door we installed last year. This year the customer wanted storm doors with matching finish. Before the doors were built the various components were taken to our paint shop and sprayed with automotive paint. The doors were then built, installed, then taken back to the paint shop for a final top coat to insure a uniform finish. A lot of time was spent transporting these doors here and there but the final product speaks for itself. ... See MoreSee Less

Not the best lighting or photography on this one. The color on the doors is actually spot on.

This double door was installed last year to provide light and privacy. This year they want me to install a double storm door to add light and a view onto the driveway so they can see their guests arriving. Keep yours eyes open for the big reveal after the installation. ... See MoreSee Less

After round 4 it seemed appropriate to throw out an easy one

This door and sidelight has miniblinds between the glass. It's easy to keep clean and does not slap when you swing the door. When company is coming you can level the blind or even raise it to welcome your guests. Or you can tilt the blind to offer privacy and block the sun. ... See MoreSee Less

It looks like a school... Hoover??

It's not Hoover, but you have the right area of town

The church on 34th St?

An excellent guess..but no cigar

The lodge on Urbandale Ave?

Another good guess. You are about a mile off though

I know, I know!

Round 3 coming soon

Outside the north doors at Sears Merle Hay Mall..by the lawn and garden and tools section if you need that as well😜

To stay in keeping with the originality of her Beaverdale brick home my customer was insistent the garage service door should be wood. I was pushing textured fiberglass because any current wood door is built from new growth lumber, which warps and changes shape. But to get the exact same look we had to go wood. I found a Simpson door with true insulated divided light (6 individual glass units), a composite bottom rail and very stable construction. I was very pleased and totally surprised to find a wood door built this well. ... See MoreSee Less

Besides being drafty, the original door was dragging on the carpet which left no room for a rug. Problem solved. ... See MoreSee Less

I Very Highly recommend Doors of Distinction for replacement of any doors in your home. He has a lot of pride in his work with good reason.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING THIS PROJECT SO EASY FOR US & MAKING IT LOOK SO BEAUTIFUL!

This is the largest door system I have installed to date. It was a four person job wrestling this monster into place. With most of the weight in the transom it was quite awkward. I wish I had an interior shot of this fiberglass door as it is stained to match the variations in their existing walnut woodwork. ... See MoreSee Less
