About Me


Hi folks, I'm Frank Anderson and I'm the owner of a small construction company and the creator of this web site, Door Frames. You may ask yourself, why a web site about door frames? Can anything be more boring? Well, quite frankly (no pun intended), one of the things in a construction project most people take for granted is a well functioning door. And it's not the door itself that makes a high-functioning door, it's the frame. And so I'm going to focus this site on this much ignored piece of of home or business construction. Take a moment to look around, read an article and look at some pictures. And if you have any questions, please drop me a line. Thanks and take care.
