A Victorian screen insert for the combination door
gives you two distinct looks for your home.
A full view screen only door with a "T-bar"
dividing the screening in this case into 4 sections. The row of
spindles is what we call a ladder.
Above you can see a 1 3/8" thick Hoffmeyer custom
fancy Victorian combination screen and storm door. The exterior
entry door behind we also made. This 1 3/4" thick door is
a 4 raised panel design, also milled from #1 common solid Ontario
White Pine with an extra panel moulding for more detail. All doors
should be fit and hung with all hardware installed and working
before it is stained or painted. Once you are satisfied with its
operation, you immediately remove the door from the jamb, take
off all hardware and proceed to finish the door equally on all
of its surfaces. An even finish is very important on any wooden

Give us the sizes and we can match proportions. Each
door is made to order!
Full screens are not as pet/child friendly, adding a raised
panel makes the screen last longer as it is higher up on the door

Fir , Cedar or other woods can also be used.
"Reg" style in blue and "Steve" style in
Red with a bit of both beside. Combinations are endless. Each
door is a one of a kind, built to your specifications to fit your
style or application. You don't make it fit, we build it to fit.
Customer supplied bracket designs here. You can send
me a template for your own custom look.

with three raised panels and a double ladder screen. NICE!

door with a closeup of the panel mould detail below. This was
done to match existig doors in the home instead of using our usual
rasied panel design. This particluar door has a plain one lite
screen and matching one lite storm window insert not shown..
Custom round top combination door with 8 true divided lights.
The curved muntins which divide the glass are particularly difficult
to master. There is hours of handwork required in order to do
it right. See a close up below:
