We are building a custom home. Which brand of door entry sets, knobs, deadbolts is recommended? I am willing to spend more if more durable.
We selected Emtek for our new build. They will be installed on Tuesday. I believe the quality and design to be very good.
Emtek or Baldwin are the higher end products with Schlage not far behind.
Finish on door hardware throughout the house.

I’ve used Emtek, and plan to use them again in my current project. The Emtek products I have are holding up beautifully.I’m not impressed with Schlage; I don’t like the designs as much at all, and the quality does not seem as good to me.Baldwin looks very solid and well-made; I’ve seen them in stores, but I have not used their products.
We put Emtek in three houses and the product has held up very well.
Our front door knob is Emtek but internal doors have Baldwin knobs. My purchases were more focused on design.
We have Emtek levers on all exterior doors. The mechanics are great, but the oil-rubbed bronze finish is not holding up (about 7 years old). I've been told that a different finish would have been better.
