The Wooden Screen Door Company was established in 1994 by John Otterbein. John had been working for a local wood shop that occasionally made screen doors. John knew he could do a better job. He was right! He purchased our building that year and set up shop. The building was expanded in the early 2000’s to include a showroom and a much larger shop floor. John also had the foresight to purchase “woodenscreendoor.com” in the early aughts, which is where you are reading this now!
After 27 years, and thousands of screen doors, John retired in the fall of 2021. Jennifer and Neil Gutekunst purchased the business at that time. The production team, with over 15 years of experience, remained in place. Jennifer has a background as an HR analyst and Neil brings his experience as an officer in the United States Marine Corps. Jennifer and Neil also own a millwork shop in southern Maine, called New England Treads, which they have run since 2019.
Jennifer and Neil look forward to working with you to create the perfect wooden screen door for your home.
