“We just completed the first phase of our remodel. As with any construction, there are always unexpected challenges. What makes Renaissance Windows & Doors stand out above any other company I have dealt with is the culture of integrity and customer service that they instilled. They were with us every step of the way as we navigated challenges and came up with solutions. Bravo to them!”

The Anatomy of an Entry Door
Knowing the Lingo
The first step in any new construction or replacement door project is knowing how a door is constructed and the industry’s terminology.
Threshold covers the entry door sill and provides protection against the elements. The threshold directs water flow out of your home by adding a slight slope towards the outside.
Bulb and Blade Sweep form a seal between the base of your door slab and the threshold, virtually eliminating drafts and keeping your home comfortable year-round.
Weatherstripping helps seal the gaps between a door slab and its frame, keeping out moisture, wind and dirt.
Embossing is the raised or depressed design in the surface of your door which contributes to the overall style of your door.
Skin is the outer layer of the door slab. Fiberglass and steel door skins are available in a variety of textured and smooth options to give a wood or more modern look.
Glass styles and combinations fit in many doors to produce a unique and custom look.
Glass trim surrounds the glass. High-performance, heat-resistant window trim won’t warp, crack or pull away from the door, even in sunny or higher temperatures.
Door frame is the support around the sides and top of a doorway.
Hardware includes different types of knobs, levers and locking systems that provide basic function, security, and style.
Strike plate is located on the door jamb and provides extra security where the door latches, preventing unwanted forced entry.
Hinge is a piece of hardware that allows the door slab to open and shut. The hinge color typically matches the door hardware.
Casing is a type of trim designed to hide the gap between the door frame and the wall. Casings come in a variety of styles and finishes.
