Evaluating French Door Choices

avalpertSeptember 30, 2012

Hi, I need to replace 3 french doors and am trying yo evaluate my options. I am most interested in minimizing maintenance and finding the best cost/value point. I live in the DC area so i get a nice mix of cold and humid.

I have a quote for 3 Marvin Integrity Ultrex/Wood sets with GBG and only one active door for ~$9000 installed, a Provia steel set with two active doors for ~$11,100 and got a quote from Lowe's for a Benchmark by ThermaTru set for ~$6600.

What I am trying to evaluate is if the $2,400 more for the Marvin Integrity is really worth it over the ThermaTru from Lowe's and if there is any reason to consider the Provia for another $2,000.

Any thoughts?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I'd get a quote on the Provia Fiberglass. Check out the new Vantage line.
