Upstate Door

Upstate Door has introduced their own line of bi-folding and lift and slide exterior doors. Utilizing high grade Centor E-Series hinging and operating hardware ensures long lasting and efficient operation. The Upstate advantage, over other manufacturers offering these opening styles, is increased panel configurations, infinite panel style selections, and choice of wood species for the door panels and jambs.

The opportunity to offer up 53’ in clear opening creates the high end architectural feature that is very desirable. Coupled with the upgraded performance of these products, Upstate Door allows you to design and offer a very high end product for a reasonable price.

Upstate Door will seal and base coat any exterior door and Shepley will apply the finish coat in whatever color you choose. All exterior wood doors require immediate painting and in our environment, that is not always possible, so consider this option the next time you invest in one of their fine door products.

Although these types of doors will not perform in our most harsh exposures, they can certainly be considered in sheltered exposures. All wood door manufacturers today require an overhang over their doors equal to half of the door height to protect the door to qualify for any warranty.

We welcome Upstate Door as a partner who offers a high end, wood, entry door system to match your requirements and design needs. Accurate shop drawings, design flexibility, and a high degree of attention to detail with reasonable pricing sets Upstate Door apart from the commodity door offerings for entry doors, interior doors, and storm door products.
