Tropical Storm Elsa is expected to impact Florida's west coast through Wednesday with high winds, heavy rains, and possible storm surge flooding. Mid to late week, heavy rainfall across Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina could impact freight as well.

Expect shipping delays if you have shipments heading to, from, or through any of these areas.

COVID-19 & Hurricane Elsa Update

As everyone is well aware, we are experiencing a global pandemic and have to navigate our business accordingly. We know that you are anxiously awaiting the arrival of your doors and hardware.

We are happy to announce that we are no longer experiencing lumber and wood product delays. Glass delays are an ongoing issue. We are dealing with major shipping and freight delays as well. Our current lead time is 10 weeks and all freight shipping, as well as small packages (UPS, FedEx, USPS), is experiencing longer than normal delays. Freight carriers are currently rejecting one in every four loads tendered under contract terms. Unfortunately, the driver shortage is still an issue. Backlogs continue to hamper some parts of the country due to weather, COVID-19 impacts, and overall capacity constraints.

Thank you for your continued support and allowing us to continue building your custom doors.  We appreciate all of you so much!!!
