Chris Miles, builder and Bill Peck, architect, say the sound reduction provided by solid core doors is worth the investment. Here’s how doors can help keep the peace!

Miles owns GreenCraft Builders, L.L.C., in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. He helps his clients create the ultimate spaces for peace and quiet by using sound dampening building technologies. Solid core doors from Masonite are an integral part of his construction.

Also specializing in sustainable or green commercial/residential building practices, Peck is principal of William Peck and Associates architects in Lewisville. He starts his home designs at the front door, walking clients through two-dimensional models to help them understand the role doors play in design and function.
