We are local to Charleston, SC and have been supplying Charleston’s elite builders, contractors and lumberyards superior-quality custom millwork products at an extraordinary value since the early 1990’s.

Contact our shop today to learn more about our custom wood doors or to start your project!

Products sold as Impact-resistant comply with the Dade & Broward County Building Code requirements and the SBCCI Standard for Impact-resistant products (at specific test pressures). These requirements are designed to measure the performance of the glass and frame when struck with windblown debris and varying wind pressures. To pass these tests, the products must resist penetration from a length of 2×4 framing lumber weighing 9 pounds fired twice from an air cannon at a speed of 34 miles per hour. After receiving the impacts, the product is subjected to push and pull forces at variable cycles to simulate both the strong positive winds and negative pressures of a hurricane. The products undergo 9,000 inward and outward wind pressure cycles every 1-3 seconds over an extended period. Impact-resistant products may get damaged during a tropical storm or hurricane. The Impact Resistance of the products does not imply that the products will not suffer damage or glass breakage during a tropical storm or hurricane.

Our superb craftsmanship as well as a strong dedication to customer service before, during and after the sale sets us apart from our competition, and most importantly we offer competitive pricing and we will meet your custom millwork needs at faster-than-industry-standard lead times.
