Traditional Doors

Great River Door Co. has been crafting exceptional doors for over 20 years, combining the artistic vision of Brent Manley, a designer and carver, with the extensive door-building experience of Mark Erickson. As a small company, we pride ourselves on our close collaboration with customers to bring their unique door ideas to life. Our approach may be casual, but our commitment to quality is anything but.

Traditional Custom-Made Wood Doors

Our traditional doors are a testament to our craftsmanship and dedication to detail, echoing the same high standards as our renowned carved doors, but without the carved elements. Instead, they are adorned with custom hand-forged straps, grills, or clavos, creating an authentic “old world” or SouthWest look. These decorative details are crafted by local artisans, ensuring each door is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.

Every door is constructed from the highest quality woods, built a substantial 2 1/4″ thick for durability and stability. The use of mortise and tenon joinery, the strongest joint in door construction, along with an engineered core assembly, ensures each door can withstand the rigors of time and weather. Our doors are not just about robust construction; they are about aesthetics as well. Each piece of wood is carefully selected for its quality and visual appeal, ensuring your door is not only strong but also beautiful.

What Sets Us Apart

At Great River Door Co., we understand that a door is more than just an entryway; it’s an integral part of a home’s character. That’s why we offer fully finished door units, including single doors with jambs, double doors, and combinations with sidelites and transoms, all tailored to your specific needs. Our doors come prehung in custom-sized jambs and are ready to install upon delivery.

Our unique finishing process, developed over decades, highlights the natural beauty of the wood and protects it against harsh weather conditions. We work closely with our customers to choose the perfect stain color, ensuring it complements their existing color schemes.
