3. Initial contact by phone or email

During our initial contact we gather information about your project including dimensions, style, wood finish, location details, and security requirements. This information helps our engineers put together a formal price quote. Contact us today!

4. Project proposal

Using the information gathered in Step 3, our engineers put together a proposal for you that details the features, finishes, cost, and installation options included in your project.

5. Client approval drawings

After you accept the proposal our team designs the passageway using 3D CAD software. We then create a set of technical drawings which show exactly what your hidden door will look like and how it will operate. We make as many revisions as necessary (at no extra cost) until the design is perfect. We want you to love it.

6. Fabrication

Once you have approved the drawings package our craftsmen and fabricators being the process of building your secret door. Every piece of lumber is hand picked by our carpenters to ensure that only the finest wood is used. Once built, our doors are stained or painted in our dust free paint room to ensure a beautiful finish designed to last for years.

Our skilled engineers meticulously hand-assemble every secret door system in our factory. Our specialized jigs allow us to simulate the installation environment and build out every component. To ensure the product will last a lifetime each door undergoes a life-cycle testing procedure that simulates a decade of typical use.

7. Crating and shipment

After testing, each door is removed from its testing environment and carefully crated for shipment to the owner. Each crate we build is unique to the door it protects. The door and its additional components such as shelves, moldings, or cabinet doors are wrapped carefully and packaged along with the door. Our packaging procedure exceeds the standards established by our carriers.

8. Installation

Most projects come pre-hung and ready to install into the rough opening defined during the client approval process. This makes the installation so simple that it can be performed by any local handyman, trim carpenter, or door installer. Each passageway comes with a detailed set of installation instructions and unlimited (though rarely needed) free telephone support. Installation services by our technicians are available worldwide upon request.
