Door Finishes and Wood Texture:
Rustic Doors are mostly made from Knotty Alder and are not finished to a smooth paint grade. It is normal to have large knots in the wood that give it character and a rustic look. Traditional Doors are made from Engineered Alder for a smooth paint grade or stain.

Kitted Doors:
Kitted doors are shipped unassembled and unfinished. If you are assembling your door yourself, ensure you have Assembly/Installation Instructions before you begin assembly. If instructions are not included, call us at 424-282-0525. All door kits are assembled to verify that they fit properly before they are shipped and then are disassembled for shipping. To prevent possible warping, we recommend having your door finished, shipped, and assembled. If you are having trouble assembling your door please call Specialty Doors at 424-282-0525 for customer support.

Delivery Inspection:
Upon delivery, if you observe damage to your hardware packages and/or door crates, you must note the damage or refuse the delivery due to damage with the driver. Claims will not be allowed without doing so. We ask that you open and inspect your packages thoroughly for any missing or incorrectly shipped items which must be reported to us within 3 days of receipt.

Shipping damage:
The damages must be reported to the shipping company driver and to us immediately as mentioned above in Delivery Inspection. Replacement orders for damaged goods are given priority.
