Necessity is often the mother of invention and such was the case when the owners of Glenview Doors found it impossible to find high quality wood doors for their custom home building projects.
“Our owners discovered a real market opportunity to create a beautiful yet durable product” explains Yuri Nekrasov, general manager for Glenview Doors’ North Shore Gallery at Studio41, a branch that opened this spring.
“We’re excited to add Glenview Doors to our Highland Park showroom,” says John Mannion, executive general manager at Studio41.
“Their commitment to customer service and competitive pricing is what really makes them a great fit to work with us,” truly making Studio41 a one-stop-shop for those working on home building or remodeling projects. Ranked No. 1 in the industry for their high-end furniture-grade door products, and supported by more than 100 5-Star reviews on houzz.com, Glenview Doors intends to reach North Shore-based, architects, builders, designers, and most especially homeowners.
“Not everyone thinks of a door as a commodity product, but it often becomes this because of a lack of specialty product on the market—the lack of ability to make a front door that will have lasting, powerful statement for one’s home. Professionals in historical renovation struggle with this very thing and are forced to overpay for a decent product, be it an entry door, interior doors, or even windows,” says Nekrasov. “But, we have a solution.”
There are many beautiful historical homes in need of door replacement on the North Shore. People are keeping their original doors that were beautiful to begin with, but can be underperforming or losing their luster due to age. Door manufacturers have made huge advancements in recent years allowing for more flexibility in design and a much more durable product.
Glenview Doors is unique in that they manage every step of the process from start to finish, from measuring the space for the doors, to installing them in homes being renovated or new construction.
“Clients have one point of contact for every project to ensure that the entire process is transparent and enjoyable. There is no room for mistakes,” he says. Specializing in genuine mahogany, alongside numerous other exotic woods such as walnut, cherry, and Spanish cedar, the custom capabilities of crafting beautiful high-end entry and interior doors is what they are best known for. “Our custom finishing capabilities are second-to-none, as all doors are finished in a state-of-the-art finishing booth, within a dust-free environment before they are heat cured. Stain matching, high-gloss paint application, and split finishes will support every designer’s flair for the creative.”
Glenview Doors has more than 20 units on display in their Highland Park gallery—from stock single doors to custom double doors with transoms, from contemporary styles to old world design, from flat panels to more elaborate panels with carvings and wrought-iron elements. “Customers can see, experience, and learn about the product before they ever place an order.”
With many doors on hand to choose from, Glenview Doors can ensure quick delivery of their non-custom products. But, even most elaborate custom-designed doors can be delivered in a timely matter—most within 12 weeks from when the order is placed.
Nekrasov is proud of the Glenview Doors line of products and encourages people to visit their showroom. “Summer is a busy time for builders and those embarking on home projects. We’re excited to be a part of this process on the North Shore.”
Glenview Doors is located in the Studio41 Showroom at 3160 Skokie Valley Road in Highland Park, 847-981-9901, glenviewdoors.com.
