Aluminum Closet Doors are built with a lightweight yet durable extruded aluminum frame available in numerous colors to compliment your home. Aluminum Closet Doors combine the extruded aluminum frame with an insert of your choice ranging from a mirror, frosted glass, white laminated glass, painted glass, or glazed vinyl hardboard, to any one of our numerous options. Aluminum Closet Doors are our most popular Closet Doors.

Refer to our Bypass Features or Bi-Fold Features section for further details.

Composite Wood Closet Doors are available in Hollow Core, Solid Core, or Ovation doors.  Also known as Molded Panels, the Hollow Core, Solid Core, and Ovation doors all look almost identical to each other but are structurally different.

Hollow Core Closet Doors
They feel light-weight and almost insubstantial in your hand, but Hollow Core Doors are not truly hollow. A think and rigid cellular honeycomb is sandwiched between a thin plywood exterior. The cardboard is used to hold the plywood together and to act as a minor sound block.

Solid Core Closet Doors
Solid Core Closet Doors are about twice the weight of Hollow Core Doors with a solid particleboard material inside of the thin plywood exterior. Solid Core doors are even heavier than solid wood doors because composite wood is an extremely dense material.

Ovation Closet Doors
Ovation Closet Doors, made of medium density fiberboard, are an upgrade from the Solid Core door.  This uniquely layered construction offers over 140 standard designs plus custom design flexibility.

Composite Wood Closet Doors come standard as a factory primed panel or with a flush stained skin. All of these closet doors are perfect for painting to the color of your choice.

A Hollow, Solid Core or Ovation panel can be custom-built to one of the numerous designs and textures we offer. Designs range from Colonial, Rockport, Santa Fe, Camden, Continental, or any one of our other design options.

Refer to our Bypass Features or Bi-Fold Features section for further details.

Steel Closet Doors are built from a steel (strong alloy of iron and carbon) frame that is heavier yet slightly more affordable than an aluminum frame. Steel frames are available in a handful of colors and combine with a mirror or vinyl hardboard insert to form Closet Doors.

Steel frames are not available for Bi-Fold Closet Doors.

Refer to our Bypass Features or Bi-Fold Features section for further details.

Wood Closet Doors are available in an assortment of wood species. Wood Closet Door designs include but are not limited to Molded Panels, Louvered, and Raised Panel. Glass Inserts are also available and the most common include Mirror, Painted Glass, and Frosted Glass.

Wood Closet Doors come in either an unfinished wood, factory-primed wood, or one of the many factory-applied paint or stain finishes. Even though identical finishing processes are applied it is not possible to guarantee an exact match in finish between two pieces of wood due to the natural characteristics in color and grain.

Certain panels are available in a texture while other panels are only available in a smooth finish.

Refer to our Bypass Features or Bi-Fold Features section for further details.

We offer a diverse selection of Glass Options for Closet Doors. The most common Glass inserts include Mirror, Frosted Glass, White Laminated Glass, and Painted Glass.

If the opening in which the Closet Doors are to be installed in is not square, it will be necessary to bring it in line before the Closet Doors are installed. Installing Closet Doors in a non-square opening will result in a subpar installation and appearance.

Squaring up a Closet Door opening is accomplished by adding left and right side jambs and leveling the jambs until they are perfectly even in width. It is not uncommon to have to add a jamb to the top of the opening as well to get the opening height in line.

A Finger Pull is a recessed circular pull handle for Bypass Closet Doors. Finger Pulls are available in Black, Dull Silver, Gold, Oil-Rubbed Bronze, Polished Chrome, and White.  Rectangle Finger Pulls are also available upon request.

Our website is just a sample of what is commonly ordered. Every Closet Door is custom-built and can be designed as so. If you can imagine it, chances are that we can build it for you.
