How To: Build A Door

You are four easy steps away from a new entranceway for your home.


Select a HOME GUARD® door style from the 24 unique families of glass and doors styles.


Choose from our seventeen decorator colors or seven hand applied stain finishes for the inside and outside of your new entry door.


Select a knob, lever or handleset (even keyless!) from the many styles and finishes offered to compliment your door.


Add functionality with a peepsite, knocker, kickplate or magazine slot. Add strength and beauty with our exclusive HGI Burglar Guard or Timberframe door frame options.

To let the sun shine through, choose clear glass for these traditional door styles. For privacy, many American Home style doors may be available as a Privacy Lite (Textured Rainglass or Micro-Granite glass). Please contact your HGI Inside Sales Representative for availability and pricing.
