The door manufacturer highlighted its two new online design tools. To help make the decision process easier and ensure customers get the wood door that best fits their home and personality, Simpson Door has added Test Drive a Door to its website. The online tool allows users to upload pictures of their home and view different exterior and interior door styles. Users can choose among various door types such as traditional, decorative, French, sash, panel or bifold. When test driving an exterior door, customers also have the option to pick an architectural style like Arts & Crafts or contemporary, and include doors with sidelites and/or transoms. The Glass Taste Test tool allows users to combine a specific door design with any of the manufacturer's 24 standard glass options to find the best look and privacy level to meet their needs.
The manufacturer also featured its Nantucket Collection of doors, constructed to offer traditional beauty as well as durability. Offered in four weather-resistant wood species–Douglas fir (shown), Sapele mahogany, Nootka cypress and black locust–the doors feature mortise-and-tenon joinery with face-driven pins; two-piece laminated stile-and-rail construction; and a choice of Shaker or ovolor sticking profiles. The construction provides a door that will retain its rugged beauty and last for years and years, regardless of what nature sends its way, the company states.
Simpson Door also showcased its Performance Series options, including its WaterBarrier Technology, with dozens of new designs ranging from French to panel to decorative entry doors. The technology combines a moisture-resistant, medium-density overlay with a thermoset acrylic latex primer topcoat and PVC glazing beads on the door’s exterior side. This creates a smooth and durable exterior that resists moisture absorption and is ready to paint, while maintaining the allure of wood on the door’s interior side, the company explains. Also available is UltraBlock technology, which incorporates a composite block material finger-jointed into the bottom of the stiles to eliminate water infiltration. The option is said to minimize stile and rail separation and eliminate bottom rail and lower stile rot.

The Solar Powered “Fresh Air” Skylight is equipped with a solar panel that captures any available daylight to recharge a highly efficient, fully concealed, operator and control system, the manufacturer states. From Velux America, the remote-controlled, solar-powered venting skylight requires no wiring, which results in an easy and cost effective installation and the solar panel does not have to be exposed to direct sunlight as it works on cloudy days and with indirect light. There is an integrated rain sensor to close the skylight automatically in case of inclement weather. Both the product and installation qualify for a 30 percent federal tax credit, meaning that homeowners can receive an average of $850 of federal tax credit eligibility, making the new fresh air skylight very affordable–in some cases, less expensive than a fixed skylight or manual fresh air skylight, according to the supplier.
