Dear PoP – Seeking Historic Front Doors?

“Dear PoP,

Since you feature such fabulous entry doors on your blog, I thought your readers might have some good suggestions for mine. I’ve just bought a 1920s bungalow that has a great porch, original shingles, all its original windows, etc., but an ugly metal front door. I know there are sources for bungalow doors out there on the internet, but I’d love to deal with a local company. Does anyone know of a good local source for period-appropriate, solid wood front doors, and people who really know how to install them for maximum security and weather-tightness?”

Anyone ever replace their door with a solid wood front door? I’m guessing Community Forklift will be recommended. Any other spots?

For those who’ve done this – how much does a good solid wood door cost?
