Historic Doors brings knowledge, experience and skilled craftsmanship — as
well as specialized research resources and equipment — to the design
and construction of a broad range of historic doors and entryways.
Some clients come to us with detailed specifications. Others come
with only a general idea. Historic Doors can research and design
for a single door or for an entire project of multiple entryways. For
each client, we prepare detailed shop drawings to ensure clear
and approval before beginning fabrication.
High-quality materials and authentic construction techniques are
trademarks of Historic Doors. Work is completed by skilled
craftsmen in our workshop
in Kempton, Pennsylvania.
Historic Doors is proud to help preserve our architectural heritage.
Working with restoration architects, building planners, historic
preservationists and owners, we can reproduce the original character
of doorways and
offer design assistance in providing authentic alternatives. Go

Renovations and additions that enhance older structures can bring
new life to valuable buildings. Historic Doors commits the same
careful attention to historical context and aesthetics for the
renovation projects as we provide to the work of historical restoration.

Whether a new building is designed in a classical or modern style,
for a private residence or public structure, its entryway should
character of the building itself. Historic Doors designs and
builds period-style entryways that embody elements of the building’s
overall architecture to create an integrated and inviting interface
with the public. Go to Case
Historic Doors brings a unique depth of knowledge to any project.
We have compiled several thousand measured drawings of doors
from the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS), and catalogued
drawings in our publication, Historic American Doors. Go
In business for more than 20 years, Historic Doors has assembled
a team of skilled and talented craftsmen who understand
how to work with
species of fine wood and appreciate the details of historic
construction. We are able to build doors and entryways
with efficient, but
historically authentic techniques on projects of varying
size, scope and style.
