Seeing the West

DALLAS/FT WORTH - Since 1925, over 30 movies have been filmed in and around Durango, CO. The beautiful scenery lends itself perfectly to the western film genre.







    In Texas, Durango Doors lets one look outside through beautiful doors and windows to the scenery.
    Durango Doors started in 1999 in Austin by John Gibbs.  Scott Pereth, who had been in the door and window industry prior, approached Gibbs about letting him open a Durango Doors shop in Fort Worth, which he did in 2002. Pereth also runs the Houston branch as well, commuting to Space City about every other week.
    Durango Doors has two primary lines of door design: the Millennium Line and the Wrought Iron Line. The difference in the two is the Millennium Line is contemporary, while the Wrought Iron Line is traditional. Pereth introduced the Millennium Line about seven years ago, and “it’s really taking off,” he said. “It accounts for about half our sales.”
    Durango does both residential and commercial structures. It has done banks, medical and business offices, distribution centers, and many private homes. Pereth has welders and blacksmiths on hand in Fort Worth to do much of the crafting, while maintaining a fabrication shop in Monterrey, Mexico, as well. The Fort Worth showroom opened in 2005.
    “We work with architects, specifying the projects,” Pereth said. “It works better if we install the product.” Durango does both new construction and “a lot of retrofits.” Their bi-fold doors are made in-house locally.
    Pereth has done work in most of Texas and into Oklahoma.  Interestingly, Pereth sells other products that the main Durango Doors office doesn’t. “Eventually,” he said, “I’ll have to change the name [from Durango] because I’m bringing on different lines.”
    Durango: home of beautiful western scenery, as well as the name of the company that lets one sees the scenery through beautiful doors and windows.
