By Suzanne O'Connor

Spring and Summer are the time most of us think of doing some home improvement projects. If you’re tight on time and a budget too, don’t settle for Home Depot or Lowes just because it’s easy without checking out these great discount sources for Home Improvement projects:

Doors and Molding

Door and Window Plus out in South El Monte specializes in buying up closeout entry doors and selling them at wholesale or below pricing to the public. traditional door with lead glass window retail at $2400 but is here at $1199.  A Spanish distressed door with side lites and wrought iron detail in the windows retails at $2599, but is here at $1299. A discontinued door is $999 instead of $1800 and some unfinished double doors were $1000 instead of $2000. They also have some great buys on molding!
