ACHIEVE CURB APPEAL QUICKLY AND AFFORDABLY
Therma-Tru Doors Gives Homeowners a Cost-Effective Way to Increase the Value and Energy Efficiency of Their Home with New Fiber-Classic® Mahogany Collection™
Maumee, OHIO, (January 15, 2010) - When it comes to home remodeling, the million-dollar question often is "How can I make impactful changes without breaking the bank?" One upgrade that can reap big financial and energy efficiency rewards is the installation of a new entry door. Considering your home's architectural style is the first step in determining a door style that makes the most impact. Next, it's the attention to detail that can take the entry from bland to grand. For this reason, Therma-Tru introduces the latest in great entrances with its new Fiber-Classic Mahogany Collection, bringing timeless style and a rich mahogany finish to the home.
The Collection includes new styles perfect for homes with popular architectural designs including Craftsman, bungalow, Arts and Crafts, mission and cottage motifs, as well as Victorian and traditional, among others. The doors offer high style and the rich look and warmth of mahogany hardwood, but at a price value compared with premium wood doors. Beyond traditional 6'8" height, the Collection is available in an 8'0" height to complement the growing popularity of higher ceilings and grand entry ways.
"Regardless of the homeowner's remodeling budget, they never lose the desire for a beautiful, welcoming home that has great curb appeal," says Derek Fielding, product manager for Therma-Tru. "This new Collection answers the need for economical, rich-looking mahogany doors that will last, and will enhance any home's appearance. And with an 8'0" height, homeowners can create a dramatic entrance that will only increase the curb appeal of the home."
Each door is constructed of durable fiberglass, is ENERGY STAR qualified; provides five times the insulation of a wood door; will not rot, split or crack like wood; and will not rust, dent or ding like steel. The doors create the tightest seal possible, creating an energy-efficient envelope that stabilizes interior temperature and helps you decrease your home's energy costs.
As an added value, homeowners who purchase and install certain styles of Therma-Tru doors may be eligible for a tax credit of up to $1,500 per household through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (also known as the economic stimulus package).

Incorporating decorative glass in your new door system can let more natural light into your home - another energy-saving consideration - while adding a custom touch. Homeowners can choose from seven decorative glass designs ranging from mission-style glass with red accents to patterned glass with Spanish and Santa Fe influences to clear Low-E glass that lets the door's warm mahogany color take center stage.
The Fiber-Classic Mahogany Collection offers an array of popular door and sidelite combinations. The doors are available in three-panel scroll, six- and eight-panel center arch doors, as well as a Craftsman choice, ideal for bungalow and Arts and Crafts home styles. Dimensions include a 6'8" height and 2'8", 2'10" or 3'0" widths, with full-lite sidelites offered in 12" and 14" widths; and an 8'0" height.
What's more, the doors contain composite top and bottom rails, ensuring the doors are rot resistant, and include LVL stiles to improve the overall structural integrity. Solid-engineered lock blocks ensure increased strength and security. And, when installed as an opaque door, a Fiber-Classic door serves as a 20-minute positive pressure fire door. Therma-Tru's Fiber-Classic Mahogany Collection maintains all of the benefits of fiberglass with a Limited Lifetime full system guarantee.
