Bill Barrett opened Southern Custom Doors & Hardware in 1997 as a one person shop offering custom made doors. Soon the business expanded, offering the finest products available, emphasizing craftsmanship, service, quality and design. The company’s doors grace homes throughout the United States and beyond, with some of their favorite designs located here in South Carolina.
The company’s philosophy remains the same today as when Bill built his first door: “We appreciate the individuality of our customers and demonstrate that by delivering a quality product reflecting their personal design style.” One customer said their doors are “furniture on hinges” and the company could not agree more.
The company has continued to expand to include stock interior and exterior doors, garage doors, gates, screen/storm doors, custom iron doors, custom windows, garage doors and more. Five years ago, the company added decorative door and cabinet hardware lines such as Baldwin, Rocky Mountain, Nobilus, L.B. Brass, Omnia, Emtek and more, all on display in the showroom. Bill’s knowledge of door construction quickly set him apart as the door and hardware expert. He assists customers with selecting not just the hardware design they want but the proper functionality of the hardware they need.
At the end of 2011, the company increased its showroom once again to display more hardware lines, lighting, folding door systems, wood and iron doors and gates. With the addition of decorative artist Thersa B. Giffin and her onsite TBG Surface Design showroom, the location has quickly become a design center for home decorating consulting and coordination services, including faux artistry and textured painting. Thersa’s showroom has many examples of her exceptional faux finishing. Decorative finishing adds dimension and style to any room, and it’s as durable as it is beautiful. From walls and floors and ceilings, to furniture and cabinetry, Thersa transforms ordinary rooms into one-of-a-kind spaces.
