JELD-WEN Custom Carved Doors Add Instant Charm To Ronald McDonald House Renovation
March 06, 2012
KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — When the remodeling team for the Ronald McDonald House in Des Moines, Iowa started searching for ways to add style, charm and warmth to the home’s interior design, there was no need to look any further than JELD-WEN’s Custom Carved door line.
With the ability to incorporate different designs, panels and options for moulding, the style combinations for this door line are nearly endless. This flexibility–including the ability to custom carve nearly any two-dimensional design imaginable–allowed interior designers to get creative by adding a heart-shaped design to the door of each room, immediately incorporating a sense of comfort for families staying at the home. The remodel, which was completed in the summer of 2011, is showcased in a 9-page feature story in the March 2012 issue of Midwest Living magazine.
“I saw the Custom Carved doors at the International Builders’ Show and thought they would be perfect for this project,” said Carol Schalla, senior home editor for Midwest Living magazine. “JELD-WEN took my drawing and replicated it on the doors. They add to the charm of the home and everyone has been blown away at how modern they make the space feel.”
This innovative technology isn’t reserved just for special projects like the Ronald McDonald House. According to JELD-WEN, any homeowner can add a special design touch quickly, easily and affordably with JELD-WEN® Custom Carved interior doors. Available in a variety of styles and sizes, these doors are made of medium density fiberboard (MDF) that offers reliability without the risk of separation of stiles, rails and panels. Custom design details, including graphic designs and text, can be carved into the door using router technology that creates a detailed and polished appearance. The doors also have a core that provides exceptional sound reduction benefits, providing up to 50 percent more sound reduction when compared to a flush, hollow core door.

JELD-WEN also offers the latest technology when it comes to installation, making the door replacement process just as easy and elegant as the Custom Carved interior door offering itself. Called the JELD-WEN Perfect Fit program, doors can be installed quickly and with minimal hassle. By taking 3-D measurements of each door opening and sending them directly to the manufacturing facility where each door is built to fit right into the existing door frame, this solution saves time and money. At the Ronald McDonald house, the Custom Carved doors took less than three weeks to order and the Perfect Fit program made it possible to install all 24 doors in less than a day.
