Old World Stone, Oak, & Concrete Thresholds are now something you can enjoy at your doorstep.

Grueter Construction introduces life-time concrete thresholds. Handsome in a variety of finishes and colors. Our proprietary concrete at 6,000 lbs. per square inch is 3,000 PSI stronger than sidewalk concrete. Unlike wood, there is no rot, split, warp, impervious to water or dog chewing. With an old world look I adapted from replicating the thresholds on the Craftsman homes and mansions along Pasadena’s Arroyo while remodeling these homes and adding doors that must look like the other doors in the home. In most cases we can have you walking on your new threshold in 8 hours. Call for a quote on your custom fit, color, and finish threshold.

We also offer stone, oak, and high grade aluminum.
