Press Release Summary: New product offerings better compliment popular hardwood
flooring and cabinetry choices.

Press Release Body: Tampa, FL. February 13, 2008 - As American's migrate from
conventional cathedral grained wood species such as Red Oak to finer grained species
such as Cherry, Maple and Mahogany for upscale kitchen cabinetry and hardwood
flooring, so too has their demand for Mahogany doors.
"Although oak still makes up the majority of our sales, we have seen dramatic
increases in our Mahogany doors which compliment premium flooring and cabinetry,
whereas oak will contrast many of these warm, fine grains", says Doug Thompson,
Masonite's Senior Director of Product Management, Exterior Doors. "The natural
beauty of these hardwoods can transform an average living space, into a stunning
home. Nothing is more important when creating a stunning home than the first
impression that occurs at the front door."
Masonite, a leader in design and innovation for over 80 years, is proud to offer
four new Mahogany designs that will leave a lasting impression on both you and your
guests, while not requiring all of the maintenance typically associated with a wood
The universally accepted six panel design is available in our popular Belleville
line, and is the perfect fit for almost any home. Combined with Masonite's broad
selection of SpecialtyT Glass designs, the options to enhance the beauty to a home
are nearly endless.
The Barrington Craftsman has a traditional styling that fits beautifully on many
homes, particularly Craftsman influenced homes commonly found in the Midwest and
Northwest portions of the country. An optional dentil shelf, SDL (simulated divided
lites) bars, and a choice of glass designs provides the ability to customize to the
correct architecture and style of the home.
The Barrington SierraT line has been extended to include a one panel plank design
with a camber top. This popular line compliments Southwestern and Mediterranean
style architecture.
With clean and simple lines, combined with a master craftsman's attention to detail,
the Barrington FlagstaffT extends beyond traditional southwestern design into a more
contemporary architecture, such as open floor plans with ample natural lighting.
Most importantly this marks the dawn of Interior / Exterior door collections for
Masonite. This design is available in the Mahogany textured Barrington line with a
complimenting interior door to keep design harmony within the home.
