Supplier Spotlight! Masonite 

The savvy home renovation enthusiast knows what the right siding, windows, and doors can bring to a home. A memorable front door can be your exterior centrepiece, and a well placed window can make or break a room’s ambiance. Your home’s design isn’t all about positioning, either - quality goes a long way, and as home renovation fans ourselves, we’re pretty demanding of our suppliers when it comes to high quality products.

In our previous Supplier Spotlight, we featured the formidable local wood working and millwork specialists, Allen. This edition features the global door manufacturing organization, Masonite. For cutting edge design, we have no reason to look any further than Masonite’s unparalleled interior and entry door systems.


Masonite has a rich history in door manufacturing. It was 1924 when the company’s founder, William H. Mason, invented a new construction material made from wood chips. Today, you know it as high-density fibreboard. more than 80 years later and Masonite is now among the top 5 door manufacturers globally. To this day, Masonite is relentless in their pursuit of higher caliber doors.

Though the process of identifying a good door from a great one often (mistakenly) stems from the material a door is crafted from, there are a couple other factors worth your consideration. The first is energy efficiency, and the second is design (neither of which ought to be forfeit when choosing a material you love), and these are qualities that Masonite is committed to maintaining. For example, consider their Storm Guard series.

Designed for home owners living in climates prone to frequent hurricanes and severe weather, the Storm Guard is impact-rated and available in steel, with fibreglass on the way. A product that undergoes intense testing with the potential to withstand 120mph winds, these doors are attractive, practical, and sturdy. Outfitted with Masonite’s CoreShield Technology, glass components are more likely to withstand damage and retain their stylish appearance.

And just because the Storm Guard is tough doesn’t mean it isn’t attractive or energy efficient. With nine stunning glass designs to choose from, homeowners can exercise their creative freedom and pick a look that suits their motif. From rectilinear to free flowing lines, every model is poised to please the discerning exterior decorator. When you’re not admiring the new look of your entryway, you’ll be celebrating a reduced energy bill - the result of a door that meets all Energy Star requirements.

It’s no secret that we’re proud to be supplied by Masonite. They match our passion for incredible door and window service in Halifax with a drive to revolutionize function and fashion in their product. Explore the full line of Masonite doors, here.

Amazing crew, the two installers were punctual, of good humor, and very skilled in their workmanship, even with the additional repair required on a Friday morning before a long weekend. They were both truly professional and I commend them both! A job very well done!
