and the possibilities are endless! No matter what kind of custom door you are looking for, South Shore Millwork has the skill and products to meet your demands. We custom make a wide variety of doors from entry doors to interior doors to fire doors. Classic or modern, we can create the exact door you need. Like everything we produce, your door will be unique. We hand make every door, never using conveyor belts or production lines. Yet we utilize the most up-to-date CNC machining equipment for sizing and mortising your door hardware.
Interior doors include sliding doors, pocket doors, folding doors, blind doors, French doors, Dutch doors, flush doors, panel doors, and louver doors. Interior doors can make or break the interior design of a home or commercial space, however the importance of their design is often overlooked. Vanessa Brunner of Houzz explains “a beautiful door is one of those subtle necessities that can make a big difference in … style. Like trim or moulding, most doors go fairly unnoticed, but they can have a dramatic effect on the look of the room.” And you can turn to South Shore Millwork for help. We work closely with clients to ensure our work reflects the lifestyle and personality of each project.
Exterior Entrance Doors
When designing a home or business, the entrance is always a very important element of the overall design. We can create a front door that will set your project apart from the rest, creating instant visual impact and serving as a fitting introduction to the rest of the space. Whether you require a historic reproduction or a sleek modern look, commercial or residential, we can help you create it.
Fire Rated Doors
Fire doors offer homes and commercial properties protection against the spread of fire and smoke. If you’ve always thought that the requirement for fire rated doors meant compromising the design aspect of the job, think again. Here at South Shore Millwork we can create hundreds of different style fire rated doors. We can match existing non-rated doors to give a clean consistent look with the same details as standard doors. You won’t even be able to tell it’s a fire door.
And while most other fire door manufacturers only offer higher fire ratings with a thicker door, we have specially designed our fire doors to maintain standard 1 ¾” thickness for ratings up to 90-minutes. We also offer 20-minute fire rated glass doors, yet another way to maintain safety and style in your project.
Stave Cores & Stave Core Doors
Wood stave core is made by bonding together small pieces of wood to form a core blank. Once bonded, it is sanded to a uniform thickness. We offer stave cores for 1 7/8” to 2 3/8” thick doors and up to 120” long.
Finger-jointed hard, soft, or rot resistant stave cores provide stability for all types of wood doors. In addition “stave core doors offer greater stiffness and resistance to breakage” notes Algoma Hardwoods. They go on to say that “this is especially true at hardware cutouts and glass openings… and should be specified for use on projects or areas where doors may be subject to heavy usage or abuse.”
Whatever type of custom door you are looking for, leave it to the experts at South Shore Millwork to create it. We have built a reputation for uncompromising quality and unparalleled service; providing custom woodworking, mouldings, windows, and doors throughout the Boston area, New England, and beyond.
