Before and After: Fypon Door Surround Enhances Decaying Entryway

Dennis Sweeney’s home was built in 1995, but over just 20 years, the original steel door and wood brick moulding began to deteriorate due to the New England climate. This year, he purchased a new fiberglass door and needed a new door surround to replace the damaged wood.

“Moynihan Lumber, my local lumberyard, recommended Fypon’s polyurethane door surrounds,” Sweeney said. “I selected a one-piece crosshead with a built-in prominent keystone and for the sides, I used Fypon’s fluted pilaster.”

Sweeney mistakenly ordered the cross head 7 inches longer than needed. He called Fypon’s customer support and received instruction on how to cut the cross head to meet his needs.

“I followed the steps, and you can’t see any seams. It looks factory perfect,” Sweeney shared. “The reason I chose Fypon was the excellent customer support, the product is paintable, the choices are endless and the availability is just a few days away. The bottom line is that the results are beautiful and the solution is durable.”

Sweeney was able to complete the Fypon door surround installation on his own and suggests others take their time and review the instructions more than once.
