Types of Doors 

Whether coming or going, doors are the way we’re able to travel from room to room, from indoors to outdoors, and in and out of the elements. Nowadays, homeowners have no shortage of choice in selecting a door, which can range from solid, flush styles to decorative, glass-paneled designs. Check out some of the types of doors, as well as their purpose below!




[bs_well size=”sm”]

  • Entry – The front or “main” entrance to your home, most often facing the street. These are the doors that your visitors will enter through, so this door usually makes a statement. These doors can also include a transom or sidelights. A transom is the fixed glass panel installed above some doors, while the sidelights are tall and narrow glass panels that can be attached on either side of the frame of your doors.
  • Panel – A classic style of door that usually has three or four horizontal rails and three vertical stiles.
  • Flush – These doors are simple, flat slabs. These doors blend well with contemporary settings, and are often the least expensive choice.
  • Hinged Patio – Panels made from mostly glass, that can swing in or out to allow entry. These doors have multipoint locks, which means that they use a system allowing one to secure their doors at two or more locking points. These doors often include what is called a ‘sweep’ at the bottom, which is a weather-resistant system at the bottom of the door that seals air and water outside. Most commonly used are French doors.
  • Sliding Patio – Panels made mostly from glass, with one panel sliding open and closed horizontally. These doors typically have a roller, which enables the door to slide open and closed. Many of these doors include a footbolt, allowing users to lock the door from the bottom, and is operated with their foot.
  • Storm – Usually used with an entry door for added protection from mother nature. Usually energy efficient, and provides light and ventilation. These are usually made of metal or vinyl, but wood models are also available. Some storm doors have locks that can be used as a smaller level of security.
  • Custom – Doors are available in a variety of sizes and shapes depending on your needs.
  • Scenescape – Doors with multiple panels in a wide array of configurations, allowing the doors to slide, fold, stack, or pocket to allow a view to the outside.

 They removed some hardy board siding that had been exposed to lots of water and was rotten...Took old out, replaced with new, primed, caulked and painted all in one morning. Schon Holman was magnificent. He knew what he was doing, came dressed suiting the quality of work I expected, did a thorough, perfect job, left site immaculate and was professional in his conversation and demeanor. Would definitely use Schon and BACK again. 
 Today concludes my home updating experience with Back Construction. It is with gratitude and satisfaction I review Shohn and my kitchen transformation. There were many just in time process changes that needed Shohns' expertise and patient consideration. He approached them through an experienced eye and one by one sought a solution , never an excuse. This is a testimony to.his professionalism and attention to detail. Thanks Back Construction for choosing top quality staff. Thank you Shohn for taking care of me like you would your family. 
 Back Construction helped turn my rental property from the ugliest house on the street to one of the best-looking by designing and building a super-custom open gable porch roof to replace an outdated awning. The project was complicated by the need to work with multiple residents and me, the owner, but clear communication from start to finish made the process easier. They were conscientious about my budget without cutting corners on the quality, appearance, or service. 
 I was very pleased with Schon Holman who repaired a faucet incorrectly installed and repaired cabinet damaged by water. Back was quickly responsive to my request and adjusted original estimate when work was done. I would highly recommend Back. 
 Highly recommend Back Construction! They screened in part of our deck and built a pergola. The project went smooth from beginning to end. The sales manager and project manager were easy to work with and took everything into consideration. The work crew were very professional, on time and cleaned up daily. Our screened in porch has become our favorite part of the house! We will definitely be using Back Construction again. 
 I couldn't speak more fondly on my experience with Back Construction. We had the columns on our front porch repaired and we are extremely pleased with the workmanship. Schon Holman and Tom Gebhart were very professional.The Home was built in the 1800s and with the original columns still standing, the team took extra care in the repair and their preservation. They also were able to lift the porch and level out the roof which seemed like quite a task. Im very happy with the outcome. They even gave advice and information on the products they used for future reference. Thank you very much Back Construction. I will be recommending your work to others.
