Our Process

We have worked with thousands of homeowners in your area over the years. We apply what we have learned to your home and project and take pride in every door that we do .

Attempting to simplify the process is an area that Heckard's Door can greatly assist you with. Because we are the door company and the contractor, you only have to work with one company to handle all of your door needs.

You can visit our showroom in Gainesville, Florida. Or, you can send us a picture of your door to start or set up an in home consultation. We will meet with you, measure, bring samples, literature and pictures to make sure that you get exactly what your options are and can make an educated and informed decision.

We handle the entire project from start to finish. From design and selection, to production and installation. We handle the hardware, the trim, the permit process, the inspection and can even assist you with the painting and staining. Heckard's Door Specialties is a full service door company.

A Door in Process:

Below is a 6 picture before, during and after process in which we did a complete retro fit of 8' tall sliding glass doors. One unit was 12' wide, 2 were 9' feet wide and 1 was 8' wide. As you can see, we were able to make the home look like it always had the new energy efficient fiberglass French Doors.

Below shows that we start with a plan and then execute it. This home is in Jumbo Air Aviation estates and is actually the neighbor of John Travolta. This is a 10' wide by 9' tall Entry Door unit that has textured, stainable, flush glazed fiberglass doors with low E glass and a custom transom to match.

Below is as complete as an entryway transformation gets. We removed the entire door unit, transom and stucco band. We made and installed this custom Knotty Alder unit with 8' doors and sidelites with true divided, insulated, beveled glass and transom to match. We then trimmed it out with Knotty Alder instead of stucco to finish it off. This entryway in Ponte Vedra Beach has been featured in magazine articles and is often a conversation piece for the owners. Shown before and after staining. What do you think?

Below we show how you can go from very basic to very nice. We removed the builder grade metal doors and transom and replaced with fiberglass doors and transom with ODL Paris Glass to give this home in Gainesville, Florida a face lift.

Below we show that we can create door space if you do not have it. This homeowner wanted to put in a pool but needed access. We removed the windows, the brick wall underneath and installed beautiful, energy efficient French Doors with internal blinds and grills. Now they are ready for the new pool!

This lake house needed access to the rear of the home. We removed the old windows, knocked out the block under and installed a custom french door unit with sidelites to transform the home, making it more functional and efficient.

This homeowner needed a new look. We removed the old drafty wooden doors and installed new Craftsman sytle mahogany doors with ODL Greenfield glass. It was done in four hours and now the owners love the entrance of the home.
