Hi. I live in southeastern Wisconsin and I'm looking at replacing our 2 entry doors with fiberglass doors. In doing my research it seems that Provia is the clear leader in doors, but also substantially more money. I do not necessarily need the best, but I still want a quality door. The following are the names of companies I've been suggested: Polaris, Homeguard, Therma-tru, and Plastipro (not sure I spelled that one right). I've also recently been suggested Albany doors as one that is a very good door just below the quality of Provia. I can't find any information in terms of quality of Albany doors. Does anybody have any info on them? The place that sells them carries Provia, Albany and Therma-tru. The person I talked to said they don't try to sell the Therma-tru unless the buyer is adimate as they are not near the quality of the other 2 brands.
I was also suggested to replace the front door with fiberglass but use steel still in the door to the garage. Is that common practice?
Thanks for all your help. I used this forum when just replacing my windows and it was key to my decision.
