For a Truly Distinctive Entry Door, Choose ProVia Fiberglass Doors with Hand-Applied Glazed Finishes

Our favorite entry door supplier – ProVia – has given us one more reason to love them.  The high-quality, energy-efficient doors from this award-winning company are already stunning, but they upped their game just a couple of years ago by adding new glazed finishes to their already extensive options.  Available on both their Embarq and Signet fiberglass door lines, this nine-step process produces a gorgeous, durable finish that creates an even more realistic wood look to these doors, while giving homeowners color options to create a truly custom look.

Fiberglass Exterior Doors Stand Up Well to Minnesota Weather

We’ll admit that nothing comes close to the beauty of real wood, but wood exterior doors really take a beating in our climate.  They require lots of time and expense to keep them looking good and working well, which is why we suggest ProVia fiberglass doors instead.  They have the look of wood but are virtually maintenance-free.  Fiberglass isn’t affected by severe cold or high humidity like wood is. Strong and durable, it will protect your home and those inside even better than a wood door.

Now You Can Customize Your ProVia Fiberglass Door with Color Glazes

Colored entry doors – especially for the front entry – have been a hot trend for a number of years, and from the chatter we’ve been hearing from designers and builders, it’s on the rise.  But we know some people still prefer the traditional natural tones. Whether you choose a deep red or a traditional dark brown, you’re sure to find a shade that appeals to you and works with your home from one of these 7 colors.

Incredible detailed craftsmanship goes into the finishing process, beginning with their proprietary pre-finish.  The base coat/primer is oven cured for durability. The hand-applied stain and the final clear coat also get an oven cure.  A second clear coat has UV inhibitors to resist fading that is applied after hand sanding, and the final step is another oven cure that creates a durable finish with long-lasting beauty.

Oh, and did you notice those beautiful sidelights in the photo above?  These glazed finishes are available for those options as well.  Adding sidelights to your entry door can turn your front entry from ho-hum into WOW!
