Austin Door Specialties is a service company offering expert door installations, door replacement, door repairs and door finishing for residential doors and mill-work. Quality workmanship and friendly service is what we strive for on every job. With hundreds of door installations under our belt you can rest assured that your project is done right and within budget.
No job is too small. We will come out to install or replace a single interior or exterior door as well as the most elaborate entryway with doors, sidelites and transoms. We can also consult and advise you on door purchases and door installation details. Not all door openings are standard sizes and require expertise and knowledge to get the job done right.
All door repairs are welcome. We fix and adjust drafty or sticky doors. Threshold replacement, weatherstripping and sweeps (door bottom insulation) are common projects for us. Drafty doors run up your electric bill and put undo stress on your equipment. We have tried and true ways to seal the gaps!
Is your door faded or peeling? Door Refinishing services are available.
We have over 18 years experience specializing in doors only. Our unparalleled service, competitive prices, and overall value are why our loyal customers won't go any where else. We look forward to serving you.
Austin Door Specialties is locally owned and owner operated. Prior to launching the business in 2007, Jim Russell managed production at a custom door shop by day and ran a door finishing business in the evening for just shy of 8 years. The knowledge aquired of building, finishing and installing door units over the last 18 years is unsurpassed and truly makes A.D.S. a leader in this field.
Attention to detail and quality craftmanship has landed A.D.S on the preferred contractors list for BMC Millworks door installations. This same commitment to quality has allowed A.D.S. to generate a substantial list of satisfied clients who continually give word of mouth referrals.
Currently, Jim lives in Central Austin with his wife, son and two canine children. When he is not swinging a hammer, for work or for fun, he and his family enjoy hiking, biking, listening to live music, and all the other outdoor festivities Austin has to offer.
