Door Shopping? Look No Further than AVI, the Ultimate Door Store in Atlanta, GA
By: Architectural Visions
For customers looking to make home improvements or to remodel, AVI is a go-to resource. “As veterans in the window and door industry, we’re versed in the types of doors that Atlantans demand, and can meet those needs with satisfying and architecturally exciting results,” said Peter Morrison, AVI president. “We specialize in helping design and create made-to-order high end doors, but we’re equally adept at helping homeowners with even the simplest interior and exterior doors, including quality installation backed by a 10 year warranty.”
“At a time when homeowners are looking to get the most out of every dollar they spend on their home, installing an attractive new front entryway is a cost-effective investment that can have a big impact,” said Peter.
A national study by Therma-Tru doors discovered that homebuyers believe that besides beautifying your home, the right entry door system makes the entire home appear to be more valuable.
In a survey of homebuyers, 2,400 consumers estimated the value of various homes based on exterior appearance. The study found that consumers believed that a home with an enhanced entryway added to its perceived value by as much as five times the cost of the entry system installation. These perceptions were the same for both moderately priced and upscale homes.
In addition, Consumers Digest® designated Therma-Tru Classic-Craft doors as a “Best Buy” in the fiberglass entry doors category in their July/August 2011 issue.
“The improvements a new door can make aren’t just felt when selling a home,” continued Peter. “Besides increasing your curb appeal, the improved energy efficiency of new doors makes homes more comfortable, both summer and winter and reduces heating and cooling costs.”
“AVI carries high quality, energy efficient door brands, including Therma-Tru entry doors, Marvin, and Tucker. We also work with local craftsman to make iron doors and custom wood doors. We can make anything from elaborate and detailed to clean and spare, to fit any budget or style,” said Peter.
AVI ‘s architecturally designed showroom, located in Buckhead, offers doors for architectural styles from rustic, Craftsman, Mission and traditional to Victorian, Classical, and Neo-Mediterranean. A virtually endless number of wood species, including pines, African hardwoods, knotty alder, cedar, cherry, oak, fir and more can create the right door for these types of homes. In addition, AVI provides beveled and art glass, as well as textured, tinted, and energy efficient glass options for the doors they design.
“We’re also seeing new custom homes with a distinctively contemporary design, where Marvin’s made-to-order sliding glass doors, as well as bifold and patio doors have fit the bill perfectly,” said Peter.
In addition to French, patio and sliding doors, AVI also carries many styles and brands of designer door hardware including Baldwin and Nobilus, replacement door hardware, moldings, and millwork to make any replacement door project into a complete home improvement.
As a Marvin Design Gallery, AVI located in Atlanta, Georgia offers complementary products including fine millwork, architectural hardware, and interior and exterior doors. Making the customer experience the priority, AVI’s architecturally designed showrooms are staffed by veteran window design experts who guide architects, builders, and homeowners from concept to completion of home design projects.
