Custom Carved Interior Doors

 
Jeld-Wen

Klamath Falls, Ore.

Jeld-Wen Custom Carved interior doors provide a simple and affordable way for builders and homeowners to add their own creative, personalized touches to any home or building. New technology available for the Custom Carved line includes the ability to replicate historic doors with raised panels and fine detailing. Owners of older homes who would like to update their doors, while keeping with the home's historic look and feel, can now do so easily and affordably.

The doors are manufactured using solid MDF sheets, so there is no risk of separation of stiles, rails and panels. Thirty-three percent lighter than most MDF doors, each interior door has a core material, which provides some of the best noise reduction of any residential or commercial door. The technology can achieve designs that in the past were only available in wood stile-and-rail products, providing a stylish, affordable option. Homeowners can create their own unique design, or choose among 70 standard designs, from traditional Colonial to Contemporary styles.

Customization is a growing trend as homeowners look for ways to personalize their spaces. As "featured" rooms (home theaters, wine cellars, libraries, playrooms) become more popular, the doors offer a canvas for creativity and can help highlight a home's special features. The custom doors contribute to the overall interior design of a home and allow homeowners and builders to express their own creativity.
