GreenTex recently completed this door project for the Wagner family at their beautiful home in Lakeway. The couple first contacted GreenTex after they were referred to us in their search for a reputable company to replace their home’s original builder grade doors. Like with many beautiful homes in the Austin area, the builder opted for lower quality doors, and after a few years of wear and tear the doors were beginning to become a hassle.
The Faux-French doors original to the home were a much smaller size than we typically see when only one panel is operable. A standard set of French doors would be six feet wide, while this unit was only four feet wide! This severely limited the functionality of the doors, and on top of that they were facing a much larger issue in that the door was allowing water into the home. This caused wood rot in the frame of the door and the decorative molding surrounding the door.
The back door was installed improperly by the builder of the home, and was having several issues with the alignment and operation of the door. With the door issues severely limiting the functionality of their home and outdoor living space, the Wagners were ready to be done with the headache!
GreenTex came out for an initial consultation, and it was immediately apparent that we could give the family a solution to these problems for LIFE! With the help of our go-to door manufacturer, ProVia, we designed two beautiful new entry door systems built to withstand the worst elements Central Texas has to offer. The frame system features a composite base that is resistant to rotting, warping, and water intrusion, and the whole frame is completely cased in aluminum for maximum strength. The 20-Gague Steel door slab offers 50% more steel than a standard steel replacement door, along with a Polyurethane insulated core for maximum energy efficiency.
After considering a few different bids for the project, the Wagners decided that GreenTex was the right fit with the highest quality products. We were extremely excited to get this project rolling, and once the doors were in GreenTex completed a beautiful, timely installation.
The family absolutely loves the look of the new doors, and the added functionality greatly improves their day-to-day lives.
