If Carnac the Magnificent, aka Johnny Carson, were given the Answer:  “convenience and consistency” …the correct Question could be:  “Name two reasons contractors are ordering more pre-glazed, pre-finished, even pre-assembled doors from Anderson Lock.”

Door Division Manager, Devin Wascher, A.H.C., notes that more glazing (fitting panes of glass into doors and sidelites) is being done by us, and more prefinishing is being done at the factories. Benefits of specifying prefinished wood doors include uniform color and texture; proper sanding prior to application of finish; more controlled humidity conditions; cost savings and shorter installation time on job sites, resulting in faster project completion times.

Contractors looking for ways to reduce lead times, to meet customers’ demands, look to our Door Division for custom fabrications and fast turnarounds. A fifth welding station has recently been added to the huge, busy warehouse / door shop. Additional shelving has also been added to hold increased door and frame inventory. State-of the art wood door handling and machining equipment is kept constantly busy accommodating orders.
