93: LAKE HOME DOORS

1

Building a Hangar Home on Table Rock Lake and would like to discuss bifold liftstrap Hangar Home door options.

2

I have a lake home residence I am upgrading in need of a bifold overhead glass decorator liftstrap door. Opening 15' 7" w x 7'10" h. Want a carriage house look (windows, panels) without all the headache and costs for a custom set of outswing doors. Traditional roll-up's interfere with access into the home.

3

I am interested in installing one of your bi-fold liftstrap doors in a new lake house that we're building in New Hampshire. The door rough opening is 9'-2 1/2" wide by 7'-2 1/2" high. I'd like the door to be fully glazed. I could also be talked into doing your one-piece hydraulic door instead, but my first instinct and preference is to do the bi-fold system. I've read about the benefits of the lift straps, and was concerned about what they'll look like in a residential interior, then I realized they can be purchased in other colors than yellow. Do you have any photos of them used inside a home. I'm no longer open to using the standard cable version instead. Please let me know what other information you need from me in order to get a quote for this system. Also, what is your lead time from the time we place the order. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks. The door will be on the main wall that faces the lake. Thanks again.

Good evening, I have a 3000 sq. ft residential lake home on 6 acres about 100 miles north of NYC that is just about wrapping up the design phase. The open floor plan will basically have an opening of 28 feet wide by 21.5 - 23 feet high. I came across your bi-fold lake home doors and thought it might be an interesting option depending on price and insulation properties. Kindly give me a call when you have a moment to discuss. Thank you, Evan ...

We are looking to do a door on the back of our Lake home and saw the Pennsylvania garage door on your website. If I could get a rough idea on costs for something like that, I would be appreciative. We discussed using a 16' glass roll up door but this option is very appealing. We are not set on exact size but we would go between 7-8' tall by 10' 16' wide. Either a hydraulic or bifold glass door.  Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks Jeremy Josephson

We are building a house with a pool and outdoor kitchen. We are looking for a quote on a glass hydraulic OR lake home door to enclose our outdoor kitchen area in winter etc. We will be building our home on the water therefore we need protection from the elements at times. We like the type of doors that we have seen on beach houses that we have stayed in. They are open to air when you want and they appear as a a wall of large windows when closed so our view is not obstructed. The opening we will need to fill is 30 ft. long by 9 or 10 ft. tall.. Would this have to be 2 separate doors or could it be made as 1 unit? I would like to get a price quote for this type of door if you could get that for me? I would like to see the price difference in the bifold door vs using your hydraulic door as well.

15

I'm looking for options and prices for a Kenai River home garage door approximately 23' wide by 14' high. Can you give me an approximate cost for a bi-fold liftstrap door of this size? Can I build the frame and use your lifting gear? If this is an option can you give me costs for drive and lift components? Or buy the plans and hardware and build to your specs? This might be a cheaper option for me with shipping to Alaska?

We would love to meet a sales rep about your doors, if you have one near our location. If not we'd just like some info/catalogue and we'll probably discuss our project over the phone. It's a renovation of an existing lakeside residence on the southern coast of CA, and the clients would like a Schweiss glass bi-fold door as a unique feature of their home. Thanks!

Good day; NCA does not build hangars or garages, but leases lake land to tenants who do. As such, any information on your Schweiss bifold and hydraulic door product sthat I would be able to pass along to prospective builders would be beneficial. (Sizing & Pricing). Thank you.

I have a lake home where we are looking for glass vertical bifold doors for a house remodel. What is the approx cost of a double garage door size? Also are they energy efficient? Would also be interested in a one piece Schweiss hydraulic door for a boathouse. We'll be wanting cedar siding on that door, can you supply the siding or should I be doing that and putting it on myself?

30

I would like to price out 2, Schweiss liftstrap bifold doors to be used in a new house build on Lake Lanier. I believe they are your "designer" doors. I want them to clear glass. 10 feet wide. The basement walls are 11 feet high from floor to ceiling. Include remote opener and price any safety backup devices such as photo eyes, etc. separately.

31

I have an existing pool house that I want to put a Schweiss custom-made door over the opening. I can send pictures of what I have that way you will be able to better inform me on what I need. 

32

I have a cotractor lokking for a door for a boat house. The opening is 40' x 16', the only product I could think of that might cover that was a schweiss bifold door. Is this a possability for your product? I have not been to the job site yet so I do not have any information other than door size, so the info below is incomplete.

33

Hi, I'm intrigued by your doors, I just found the website! I would like to know some pricing and information about a single, aluminun, bifold door. My opening is about 9x7ft. Do the doors have double payned, sealed windows? I live in Canada with about 6 months of snow and winter. Would a door this small require hydraulics or would it be on some sort of strap and roller system? I would appreciate pricing for both types. Thank You, Jon
