Custom Wine Cellar Doors – We’ll Create the Perfect One for You!
For wine to age beautifully, you need to keep the right balance of light, temperature and humidity.
Your wine cellar door should, first, help to keep that condition sealed inside the room, and second, and just as important, should also aim to reflect your personality and accomplishments. Here at Coastal, we intend to help you with both.
Time Honored Techniques Coupled with the Latest Technology in Door Construction!
We combine modern day construction methods with old world methods. We construct our wine cellar doors using a technique called Mortise & Tenon, which have been used by woodworkers for centuries because it is simple to do but effectively strong.
Our custom wine cellar doors go through a special process designed to fortify its strength and insulating properties.
The core of our doors is made out of what we call Laminated Veneer Lumber or LVL, which is a fairly new technology that few other manufacturers offer. LVL is a type of wood product where you have multiple layers of thin wood bonded together by adhesives.
This composite nature makes it less susceptible to warping and shrinking. Furthermore, a Laminated Veneer Lumber has much better insulating qualities than your typical wood.
Wait, Laminated you say? Yes, but only the core of the door bears this feature.
We added an extra step in the core building process by using a relatively thick layer of solid wood as veneer thus the end product would still capture the natural appeal and appearance of a solid hardwood door.
The use of Mortise & Tenon joints and Laminated Veneer Lumber as core gives our hand carved wine cellar doors exceptional strength and quality. Old world meets new world indeed.

All Things Glass and Beautiful
One of the most popular options for wine room installation projects is the glass wine cellar door. Whether you have a traditional or modern theme in your residential or commercial space, a glass wine cellar door will complement your existing décor. Its timeless appeal will surely impress guests.
Proper Installation of Glass Wine Cellar Doors
At Coastal Custom Wine Cellars, we use 1/2″ thick dual paned glass on our doors because it allows us to take advantage of glass’s aesthetic benefits and at the same time, preserve the integrity of the wine cellar room.
Dual paned glass is made by attaching two panes of glass together and then sealing it around the edges, leaving a thin space in between. This sealed-in space is the key in eliminating condensation forming around the door or the glass itself.
To add integrity to the wine cellar, we add a polycarbonate vinyl seal. It helps maintain the humidity levels in the normal range (60 to 70 percent) to prevent condensation forming or temperature loss. When condensation forms, mold and mildew will grow on the walls, ceiling, wine racks, and wine labels. The worse thing that can happen is when these fungi affect the cork. This will have a negative effect on the wine’s taste and aroma.
Benefits of a Glass Wine Cellar Door
Another advantage of insulated glass is its low heat emission. This property is important because it reduces heat transfer through glass panes. It protects the wine from ultraviolet ray exposure.
In addition to keeping your wines at their best, insulated glass also lowers energy consumption. It prevents your wine refrigeration system from working too hard because it reduces the cooling power required for achieving the optimum storage conditions. When your cooling unit is running normally, it will have a longer lifespan, which prevents additional cost for repairs or replacement.
Aside from dual paned glass, we also manufacture doors with Triple Glazed Stained Glass.
Modern and Minimalist Appeal
As you can see from the doors gallery this type of door is visually appealing. Each piece of glass you see in the design is hand carved, making every triple glazed stained glass door we make uniquely extraordinary and one of a kind. You can even provide your own design and we’ll turn it into an amazing work of mosaic art!
This modern door style will not only increase the resale value of your home, but it can also boost your business’ sales revenue.

Glass doors are eye-catching. They are in-demand in hospitality setting. Wine cellars with this type of door will attract potential customers easily because it allows your guests to enjoy the good view of your beautiful wine display while dining in your hotel, restaurant, or bar. You may even opt to enclose your wine cellar with glass so it looks like an aquarium!
No More Door Dragging
This mechanical device, which is built into the bottom edge of the door, automatically pops up into the core when you open it and drops down just before the door is totally shut. Unlike door sweeps, automatic door bottoms do not need door thresholds for it to function effectively thus allowing your floor design to be consistent throughout the house.
Aside from aiding in sealing the interior air in, our specially designed automatic door bottoms prevents damage to your floor due to door dragging. With the added step of weather stripping, Coastal Custom Wine Cellar Doors are truly exterior grade. This means you may also use them as front doors, as well as for patio or deck entrances.
The Wood Selection
You can choose from a variety of wood for the veneer. Your choice of wood is important because it lends its essence to your door. For example, clear alders give you a clean, smooth look while knotty alders give you a weathered, antiqued look. We could optionally distress the wood to different levels to make the wood look even older. This feature, the solid wood veneer, sets our doors apart from the usual solid core doors.
As standard features, you can select from 6 different stain and finishing choices: Early American, Chappo, Cherry, Chestnut, Rustic and Wheat. Staining and applying finishing to the wood adds to the door’s aesthetic value. We also have 7 different profiles of casement moldings to choose from.
Casement moldings are the decorative strips of wood that go around the perimeter of the door. We ship our doors pre-fit, complete with the appropriate door jamb, casement moldings, proper door swing and hinges.
