THERMA-TRU DOORS CAPTURES MULTIPLE INDUSTRY AWARDS FOR PRODUCT EXCELLENCE
Maumee, OHIO, (January 07, 2011) - The top-quality entryway systems manufactured by Therma-Tru Doors have recently received an impressive amount of industry recognition. The popular fiberglass exterior door systems manufacturer has been cited by a variety of sources as an industry leader and producer of products and systems strongly preferred by building industry professionals.
For the 11th consecutive year, Therma-Tru has ranked highest in the Brand Use Study conducted annually by Builder magazine. For the 2011 Brand Use Study, Therma-Tru led the way with builders in the entry door category as the brand used most, the brand used in the past two years and the brand having the highest quality rating. Therma-Tru also led with remodelers in the categories of brands used in the past two years and brands used the most in the 2010 Brand Use Study conducted by Remodeling magazine.
Therma-Tru's Fiber-Classic® Mahogany Collection™ was featured in Professional Builder and Professional Remodeler's annual "101 Best New Remodeling and Home Building Products" list in late 2010. The company was also recognized in connection with Wayne Dalton's "Model 9800" fiberglass garage doors.
In a survey of readers throughout 2010, Therma-Tru was selected as the "2010 Brand Preference Product Winner" in the category of exterior doors by Peninsula Publishing, Inc., publishers of Builder and Developer magazine. Independent survey responses from the publisher's web sites, LinkedIn and Facebook pages all were tabulated to determine the winners in this annual poll.
During the fourth quarter of 2010, Therma-Tru also received the 2010 Best in Class Award (BICA) in the category of Fiberglass Exterior Doors presented by the LBM Research Institute. BICAs recognize outstanding building product manufacturers nationwide in comparison studies to competitive companies. The unaided survey means that participants freely named --- without prompting --- the companies they believe are the best in the industry in different qualification categories.
"The multiple product honors and recognition we received during the fourth quarter of 2010 and leading into 2011 perfectly positions us for the launch of many new products in 2011," says Heather Sonnenberg, director, product management for Therma-Tru. "These awards showcase the preference and popularity of Therma-Tru products nationwide by skilled builders and remodelers.
"The fact that builders and remodelers are singling out Therma-Tru products as their preferred brand tells us that they appreciate our ongoing commitment to producing on-trend, energy-efficient, quality products."
