The doors are knotty alder with beveled glass and they are much different than we had before. We love them”

Customers have sent us pictures from Pinterest and Houzz and asked if we could duplicate them and many times we can and have.

“We found a door on Pinterest that we loved that we just knew that we would never be able to actually get, “said Pat of Atlanta, Georgia. “But I was looking online and found Heckard’s Door and contacted them about it. We sent the picture, they made us a shop drawing and put it into production and made just what we wanted. We love it and love to show it off.”_MG_9531-615846-edited.jpg
