Schueneman Doors

With one door not closing properly and the fear of extensive rot under the front entry door,

the owners felt is was time to address the issues and replace both entry doors to the front

of the house.


The new doors will be the always superb & dependable SmoothStar Fiberglass Therma-Tru doors.

They will both come pre-painted on the exterior and have vinyl door jambs to eliminate any future

rot issues. The main front entry will be trimmed with Fypon Exterior trim.
