Doors are typically one of the principal ornamental and architectural features of historic buildings. They are a primary focus of a building’s front elevation and provide an important sense of scale, detailing, craftsmanship, proportion and architectural styling. Retention and repair of historic doors is the most appropriate treatment for historic property. Repair options should be evaluated prior to considering replacement. In cases where repair is not feasible or where historic doors are missing, replacement doors on historic property should either match the original appearance or have characteristics that are compatible for the building. The characteristics of material, composition and profile are the most important to consider when looking for a compatible replacement door.
