At Rocket Doors, we’ve done our homework. When you offer only two manufacturers, you need to make sure they stand up to rigorous standards.
Jeld-Wen’s Aurora custom fiberglass doors match our criteria:
- We insist that the doors and jambs are manufactured in the same factory at the same time.
- The doors must be pre-hung in the same factory.
- No finger-jointed material is acceptable on the jambs.
- The doors and jambs must have a baked-on finish applied at the same time in the same factory in which they are made—no third-party vendors.
- They offer only ball bearing hinges.
But here’s why they should also match yours!
Do you want your door to look like fiberglass? It’s OK to admit this isn’t your thing. That’s why Jeld-Wen’s detailed fiberglass skins are created from actual wood, creating the most authentic-looking doors, right down to the knots and cracks. So you’ll choose from among mahogany, oak, knotty alder, and fir woodgrains in a wide range of stain and paint colors and with distressed texture options.
As for the foam core, you can feel great about that, too. Each Jeld-Wen product features Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) certified door slab made using 35 percent recycled content. They are also recognized for their reduction in volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions, so fewer toxins are emitted in the air in both the manufacturing process and once the door is hanging in your home.
It’s not an accident that Jack Nicklaus chose the company’s Aurora custom fiberglass mahogany doors for his country club clubhouse remodel at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio. The team removed the styles in a two-door unit to create one picture unit that presented an unobstructed view of the lovely golf course. Likewise, you’ll find Jeld-Wen doors at Martis Camp Lodge, a five-star resort in the High Sierras, and at the first private residence in Orange County, California, that the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Homes Program awarded a Platinum status (psst, they needed 100 points in the survey and scored 104!)
You can even enjoy this manufacturer’s work at the Umpqua River Lighthouse in Winchester Bay, Oregon, where state-of-the-art technology allows the front door to withstand harsh coastal conditions—but you’ll swear it’s the original wood.
Jeld-Wen has been in business since 1960, founded with just 15 employees. Today, the Charlotte, North Carolina-based company supports 21,000 employees—living its mission to invest in people.
