Millwork companies still offer hefty wooden screen and storm doors in styles plain and fancy. Coppa Woodworking, for example, catalogs about 300 designs including arched and double doors—plus doors with hidden pet flaps, and wood window screens and storm panels. Beloved Victorian-style doors feature spandrels with turned spindles, corner fans, and other ornaments.

This family business makes their doors in pine, Douglas fir, oak, cedar, redwood, or mahogany, with options for screen, glass, and hardware. Styles include full screen and oval-framed, raised-panel, lattice, cross-braced, Queen Anne, Eastlake, and Prairie. Or send your own design! Doors come unfinished or may be stained or painted before they’re shipped. Prices range from about $200 to $700 (the latter for a beefy mahogany door with both storm and screen panels). Shown is model 360DF2, with copper screen and custom-matched paint. Coppa Woodworking, (310) 548-4142, coppawoodworking.com
