Coastal Weather Doors
Homes built along the coast have some of the best views and access to nature. But they also have unique concerns, including the risk of severe weather and waves. With custom coastal weather door solutions from Upstate Door, you can rest easy in knowing your home is protected from the elements.
Coastal Doors for Life on the Shore
Our custom entry solutions don’t just protect your home, they help deliver an elegant and refined look to make your house look great as well. Our impact-rated solutions are 2 1/4″ thick as a minimum, and feature a standard sweep and weatherstripping. We use marine epoxy to glue joints together, minimizing movement and adding water resistance. With multipoint hardware, doors are also held securely in place, protecting from heavy winds and offering additional protection against water.
For doors with additional water rating, we use a drip cap along the bottom edge of the door to draw water away from the frame. We also use additional weatherstripping around all edges to create a more protective seal. By adding a screen/storm door, we create a secondary barrier to keep water at bay. Our installations also use stainless-steel screws and hardware, preventing rust formation and protecting doors from salty seawater spray.
Additional features include:
- Engineered drip and rain caps to push water away from the door
- Blockage sills help drain water away from the door
- Mahogany wood preferred for durability and weather resistance
- Factory finishing available to protect hard-to-reach areas and entirely seal the door
- Solid rails eliminate the potential for delamination
