Therma-Tru Doors are the country's leading manufacturer of fiberglass and steel exterior door systems, so most builders and remodelers prefer Therma-Tru entry door systems. The intent of this blog post is to give you an idea what to expect if you decide to purchase a Therma-tru entry door.

Security

An exterior door must not only be beautiful, but you also want the best entry doors to provide maximum-security home doors can offer to protect your loved ones. When it comes to security, fiberglass, wood, or steel replacement entry doors are acceptable. Regardless of which door you choose, you want to make sure it fits tightly into the frame with no more than 1/8" clearance between the door and the frame and is fitted with secure, high quality door locks. Not only will these features give you security, they'll also help prevent drafts and reduce heating costs.

Fire-Rated

These steel exterior doors safeguard your family and home from a possible fire. Therma-Tru's fire-rated doors give you 90 minutes of fire protection and are an excellent choice for garage and exterior entryways. While sturdy and durable on the inside, fire-rated steel doors have many refined decorative options.

Privacy

Your entry door should be an acoustic barrier.  The thickness of your door largely determines how well it blocks noise; however, glass components can diminish the door's performance as an acoustic barrier.  Therma-Tru Entry doors have triple-pane glass to reduce sound transmission.

Curb Appeal

According to a national study commissioned by Therma-Tru, a home with an enhanced Therma-Tru entryway added to its perceived value by as much as five times the cost of the door itself. Choosing a Therma-Tru door means you are adding style and curb appeal to your home. At a time when homeowners are looking to get the most out of every dollar they spend on their home, installing an attractive new front entryway is a cost-effective investment that can have a big impact.

Pricing

The price of a replacement entry door will depend on the size of the door you need, the number of panels you choose, and whether or not you choose lites and/or sidelites to border your entry door in ct. In general the more panels a door has, the more expensive it is. Adding lites to a door can also increase the cost, and if you do select lites, the type of glass you choose will be one of the main determining factors for cost. Price also varies depending on the material you choose and the manufacturer. In terms of value, Therma-Tru Reviews come out on top.
