Subjected to 12 years of harsh New Hampshire weather conditions, the entryway to master carpenter Tim Carter's home was in bad shape. Having installed countless doors during his career, Carter knew exactly what he wanted to create his home's new entry area: an energy-efficient fiberglass door from Therma-Tru surrounded by low-maintenance Fypon® urethane trim.
How colorful are you? Can you envision the heartbeat of your home --- the front entry door --- painted in Harvest Gold, Quixotic Plum or Forward Fuschia? If your home design includes a Pulse™ modern-style door, then these are only some of the color options that would easily lend themselves to your home's entryway.
Homeowners who compare the attributes of fiberglass versus wood entry doors are often surprised to learn the realistic wood-like appearance of Therma-Tru fiberglass doors offer added benefits. Thanks to the proprietary AccuGrain® Technology used to create the Therma-Tru Classic-Craft® line of entry doors, the fiberglass doors capture the deep graining and authentic look of wood, while offering affordability, ease in maintenance and added energy efficiency.
Therma-Tru has ranked highest amongst remodelers in the category of “Brands Used Most” in the Doors: Entry category in the 2013 Brand Use Study by Remodeling magazine. This is the fourth consecutive time the industry-leading door manufacturer has held this position in the nationwide study.
