At Chautauqua Woods, we refuse to settle for fleeting first impressions and “curb appeal”. Our custom entries are designed and built to please you up close, everyday.
Our fine doors and entries are created using a perfect blend of engineering and technology with old world craftsmanship.
We start with your dreams and desires. If you can dream it, we can build it.
Based on your preliminary concept, or architectural drawing, we design your entry on CAD for your review and approval. If required, we visit the job site for on-site verification.
Once your design is approved, we move to the next phase- engineering design, which combines maximum structural integrity with your creative concept and aesthetic appeal.
Selecting the very finest materials eliminates many problems – before they occur. Every piece of wood is hand selected from the finest grades of wood. Solid stock is used for all components. No cores, no veneers, no delamination, ever.
Once selected, these hardwoods are then ripped and reversed to form the most stable solid boards before moving into components and parts manufacture. Components are then assembled using ¾” x 5” dowel reinforced cope-and-stick joinery.
The assembled units are meticulously sanded and detailed using skill and technology.
Our hand-rubbed finishes start with staining and sealing all surfaces and profiles. Doors are horizontally positioned for uniformity and optimal coverage. In the final steps, we hand-wax all surfaces for the perfect finishing touch.
