ProVia Hand-Glazed Entry Doors – A Great Alternative to Real Wood for Minneapolis Homes

We realize the appeal of genuine wood entry doors is strong, especially here in the Minneapolis area where the natural look is desired. But unfortunately our climate isn’t kind to wood exterior items.   The heat-freeze cycle can cause warping, and the exposure to moisture like ice, snow, hail, and rain can hasten deterioration of the wood. Even exposure to direct sunlight can cause problems.  Plus they require regular refinishing.  But fortunately we’ve got a terrific alternative for those who love the look of wood but hate the drawbacks.  ProVia has a terrific line of fiberglass entry doors with hand-applied glazing that replicate the look of wood without all the maintenance required.

  • Fiberglass entry doors are superior to wood in terms of strength and durability.
  • Fiberglass doors are more secure than wood doors. 

Shown below is just one example.  This door and sidelight combo is from their Signet line.  It has a fir look plus a hand-applied glaze in Natural leather. The finish is just one of many things that make this door stand out.  Yes, you could get the look with a real fir door, but that finish won’t last like ProVia’s.  ProVia fiberglass doors are finished in a controlled environment in their own factory.  The process is multi-step, hands-on, creating a consistent look that lasts – every single time.

Homeowners here in the Twin Cities who have chosen ProVia fiberglass doors rave about them.  They’re strong and secure, plus they are very energy-efficient.  Year after year ProVia earns the EnergyStar Partner of the Year award, which means you can count on energy savings.

If you’d like to learn more about ProVia fiberglass doors with a real wood look, we’d be happy to arrange a private showing at our exterior door and replacement window showroom in Savage.  We’re also available for free, in-home consultations.  Just reach out to us to schedule.  (Oh, and did we say we’re a ProVia Certified Installer as well as a Platinum Dealer?  That’s your assurance your new entry door will be installed according to manufacturer specifications.)
