How we’re unique
We’re specialists. At Rocket Door, we focus exclusively on front doors and provide complete, turnkey service from initial consultation through final installation.
Doors are our passion.
Rocket Door has deep roots in the door business. Since 1977 we’ve been involved in every facet of the door industry, from manufacturing components, jambs and moldings, to selling and installing doors for the full range of residential and commercial buildings. All told, our team has a combined 97 years of experience perfecting the art of the door. Simply put, doors are our passion. Because of that passion, and because of a glaring void in the marketplace, we’ve chosen to focus our efforts on the most important door: the front door to your home. Here’s why…
The better way to buy a door.
Today’s home improvement companies try to be all things to all people, selling everything from doors and windows to roofs, air conditioners – even solar energy systems. Almost always accompanied by high-pressure sales tactics and frustrated customers. If you want to replace your front door using one of these companies, you can either sit through a long presentation by an aggressive sales person trying to talk you into buying multiple services, or you can take on the role of project coordinator and be forced to deal with a variety of vendors and contractors.
The alternative is Rocket Door. We don’t dilute our skills by offering everything but the kitchen sink. We focus them on one area of expertise: the front door. While there are many places where you can buy a new door, only Rocket Door is dedicated to walking you through the whole process of designing, purchasing and installing a new front door system.
Only the best.
With literally hundreds of door manufacturers in the marketplace, how do you know which brand to go with? Rocket Door has done the research for you. In our four-plus decades in business, we’ve worked with every major manufacturer – the good, the great and the not-so-great. We decided to partner with only the two very best, based on our simple-but-rigorous criteria:
- The doors and jambs must be 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
- Only ball bearing hinges are acceptable
Insisting on these strict criteria is rare in our industry. Even rarer are the two manufacturers that actually meet – and exceed – our specifications:
- IWP (International Wood Products) has been making doors since 1948. They were purchased by JELD-WEN Corp. in 1986. In 1997, they developed the best composite door technology on the market today – Aurora composite doors. They are now a leader in the wood and composite door spaces.
- Provia – since 1977 they have produced high quality doors in the heart of Amish Country. With both the Signet and Heritage line of composite doors, this Amish owned company is the perfect fusion of quality and service.
Doorway to value.
According to Remodeling Magazine’s annual Cost-vs-Value Report, investing in a new front door brings one of the highest rates of return available. That’s partly because installing a new front door requires a craftsman with the highest level of skill in the remodeling industry. It’s much more challenging to replace a door than to install one in a brand-new opening. We have replaced thousands of doors and John Hull, our Installation Manager, is as meticulous a craftsman as there is.
