The doors featured in Raven's Catalog of Reproduction Victorian Doors are truly unique and, to our knowledge, cannot be found anywhere else. Our doors are recreations of the most attractive surviving original front doors in the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout California. Our doors are unparalleled in quality and durability and represent our passion to provide the best of a past era of manufacture. We want thank our past clients, preservationists and the receptive homeowners who continue to extend invitations to us to document their front doors. Without those who share our interest, we could not accurately reproduce the millwork and ornamental details that make it possible for us to continue to expand our catalog every year.
Traditional wooden doors and windows were originally manufactured and installed to allow for periodic servicing. However, as the knowledge and use of hand-tools by tradesmen has waned, so has the practice of maintaining these distinctive architectural features, leaving many to fall into disrepair. Raven Restoration fills this void.
We are passionate about historic preservation best practices and our goal is to limit our use of modern materials and to retain as much of the original as possible. When we do need replacement elements, we match the quality and wood type of the original construction and use only the finest architectural conservation methods and products sourced from accepted architectural and wooden boat restoration texts.
Most Victorian & Edwardian homes we assess, retain their original windows. Unfortunately, original Victorian front doors are usually missing entirely. In these cases, we can offer a reproduction Victorian door that is true to the construction of the missing original in every way and can be chosen to be accordant with your particular facade. All of our catalog doors are custom made from solid heartwood and are assembled with interlocking mortise & tenon joints; never dowels, veneers, composites, or other lesser parts.
We provide free restoration estimates within our service area (see our google page). Our accurate written estimates clearly outline every aspect of our products and the work we will carry out. With Raven Restoration, you will find that quality and professionalism are no longer a thing of the past.
