Glenview Haus Historically Renovated Doors

Glenview Haus’ Historical Renovated Doors are designed to transport guests to another era while being built with modern technology. The team at Glenview Haus studies the original design of the door and works with you to recreate all of the unique details that initially adorned the door. They can replicate exact panel and sticking profiles no matter how complex and intricate, to ensure the aesthetic design is an exact match and meets the client’s needs. Historically Renovated Doors are redesigned with current technology and furniture-quality wood, so they have improved insulation qualities and can better endure the elements. Glenview Haus is also able to make historically renovated doors fire-rated to ensure the utmost protection of the building and its occupants while meeting compliance and local building codes.

Recently, Glenview Haus finished restoring the wooden doors for Chicago Temple First United Methodist Church, also known as First Methodist Episcopal Church. This landmark building was completed in the year 1923, and at the time was the largest building in Chicago. Glenview Haus was able to reproduce the features of the door unique to its time-period, such as the wrought-iron clavos and ornamental decorative hardware. This historical renovation project is only one example of Glenview Haus’ ability to recreate the past in the present.


Construction Methods

Focused on making sure that their Historically Renovated Doors are made with the highest quality construction techniques, Glenview Haus engineers the doors in two ways that add durability and stability. Glenview Haus’ solid wood historically renovated doors are crafted from the world’s finest hardwoods. The premium grade components of these doors are first kiln dried, and then craftsmen carefully match grain textures and colors to craft a beautiful wood door. Additionally, Glenview Haus’ manufacturing capabilities allow for the application of a European method of construction to historically renovated doors. The European construction doors are based on the door sandwich design. This means that furniture-grade wooden veneers cover a thermal insulation board with aluminum elements for added stability. This construction method delivers an excellent thermal performance and overall product durability so that your historical renovation and landmark projects will stand the test of time and last for years to come.

From replacing extremely elaborate doors in a landmark hotel to providing a custom designed church entryway, our fire-rated doors are perfect for historical restorations, landmark projects, religious organizations, high-end commercial and hospitality establishments and all other areas where a simple flush metal door will not do the job justice.

Glenview Haus offers rated glass and glazing options for rated doors as well to let in light but still keep people safe and meet code.
