One Day Doors Arizona

Helping Customers Realize Design Dreams with Minimum Hassle

Marina DeWit and James Bernau became longtime family friends after meeting through their children’s mutual activities for over a decade. As with so many others, COVID brought lots of changes. It created a pivotal opportunity for these entrepreneurs to co-own a new business that can help the community. Drawing on their previous experience in both corporate and small business, they became the local dealership for One Day Doors & Closets of Arizona (

Easy Fix for New Interior Doors

New interior doors, whether bedroom, pantry, closet or others, can completely change the look of your home. And for many, their houses are getting older—meaning the doors look outdated or bland and can negatively impact the rest of the home’s style. The challenge for homeowners is that replacing interior doors has always been a substantial undertaking.

Until recently.

Choosing doors at a big box store typically means minimal options of door styles and sizes, along with the fact that doors off the shelf will not fit a homeowner’s existing doorjambs. Door installation is difficult in existing homes due to foundation settling, uneven flooring, odd door sizes, and bowed jambs. It becomes an invasive house project that involves removing existing doorframes, installing pre-hung doors, patching, and painting while taking weeks of living in a construction zone with a contractor or handyman constantly present.

“We’re Arizona’s premier interior door replacement company and have the highest customer rating over any other company,” says Bernau. “We replace your interior doors in just one day without any messy construction in your house. The doors are precisely measured to the existing frames, custom crafted, and professionally painted, ensuring beautiful doors that arrive at the home and are installed in just a few hours.”

The pair opened for business just a year ago and have been awarded “Rookies of the Year” by One Day Doors & Closets because of their commitment to quality and high standards of customer service.

The One Day Doors & Closets Difference

With the revolutionary 3D measuring technology, One Day Doors provides custom-fit interior doors without replacing the door frames.

DeWit adds, “We save you time and money while transforming your home to the style you want, stress-free.”

One Day Doors & Closets of Arizona offers a large selection of styles for interior doors, as well as closet doors, barn doors and closet organizers. Customers can visit the North Phoenix showroom to make selections to fit their unique tastes and transform their homes.

“We can replace 20-25 doors in just one day,” Bernau states. “For most contractors, that would take over two weeks. And we pride ourselves on the white glove service. We’re registered contractors and have over 30 years of combined experience with our employees.”

He continues, “We make it a smooth experience from beginning to end.”
