Window and Door Magazine’s May issue was all about custom curb appeal. The latest trend toward personalized entry ways was discussed by industry leaders. And they turned to our very own, Brad Loveless, Marketing and Product Development Manager.

In the article, Brad highlights some key points to consider in this new personalization trend.


When you choose a personalized, high quality door from Simpson, you can expect it to stand the test of time. And knowing a little about what wood door features make a difference for any tough environment will ensure your door will perform as good as it looks.

Choices All Around

If you are under the assumption that size, shape, and paint color are your only options to choose from when personalizing your wood door, you are going to be in for quite a surprise. Size and shape are just the beginning of your door design journey. You can select virtually any wood species, glass size, textured glass design, panel and sticking profile, and the list goes on.
