Inspect the Door
Do not discard the crate
in case of product return.
The Crating department builds fork-liftable custom
sized crates on pallets from scratch for each and every order.
We completely encapsulate the load in 1/2" OSB plywood and
use Styrofoam inside the crate to protect the wood doors while in transit.
CRATING TYPES: Please talk to a sales rep about how your door will be shipped. We can ship "KD" or "knocked down" where your jambs, threshold, doors, sidelights, and trim pack are all loose in the crate, assembly will be required. Ideal for unfinished (needing to be stained on site-doors). For easier installation, we'd recommend shipping your door completedly assembled (exteriors only).
