Glenview Haus Offers Euro Entry Doors as Perfect Solution to Extreme Chicago Weather Conditions
European Construction Doors are designed to resist the common issues that solid wood front doors typically experience in Chicago weather conditions. In addition to increased weather resistance, these high-tech doors are incredibly energy efficient because of their insulation properties.
Modern Commercial Doors – 33 W Ontario Street Chicago Townhomes
Glenview Haus recently renovated the entryways of an unusual collection of luxury townhouses at Ontario and State that really put their front doors to the test. Creating custom modern commercial doors for these units required both a designer’s eye and an engineer’s mind. The entries to these modern townhouses sit on the pool deck of a high-rise, 14 stories above street level. This lofty location and lack of entryway overhangs mean that the front doors endure heavy exposure to the elements. As a result, these wood front doors get more than their fair share of rain, snow, and especially wind.
Transitional Mahogany Front Door with Espresso Finish – 1722 N. Burling St., Chicago
Barrett Homes recently completed construction of a gorgeous home on N. Burling in Lincoln Park. Burling Street boasts a broad array of beautiful residences, and it’s one of maybe a handful of Chicago city streets known nationwide for its prime real estate. Each impeccably appointed address is carefully designed and well-considered. With its flawless facade and custom transitional front door, this latest addition to the block is no exception.
Transitional Mahogany Wood Front Door with Espresso Finish – 1702 N Burling St., Chicago
Using advanced engineering and construction methods, solid wood stiles and rails surround a polycarbonate core, encased by a real wood veneer. The outcome was a door that looked just like solid wood but resisted the symptoms — such as warping, splitting, and cracking — of exposure to moisture and fluctuating temperatures. The Euro Construction door also had far better insulation, keeping the home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
