CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 9, 2018--JELD-WEN unveils Birkdale™, a Shaker-style interior door with the upscale feel of a Craftsman-style wood door at a molded door price point. Developed for both residential and commercial use, the three equal flat panel design meets the ever-increasing demand for a simple, modern wood-door look at the affordable price point and low maintenance of a molded door. The Birkdale™, which debuted at the 2018 International Builders’ Show, where its flexibility was showcased in both contemporary and Craftsman home vignettes, is now available for order.
