Kolbe Front doors

Posted by lzerarc (My Page) on

I received my window bid package from my Kolbe rep and I had him include the front door. Its an 8' full glass fiberglass door with their multi-point locking hardware.
The price sort of surprised was lower then I thought it would be. Infact the lowest front door price I have so far (got numbers from Thermatru, Taylor, Pella).

Does anyone have any feedback on their doors? I also have a few french doors as well.
The window package to go with it would be the Ultra in casement and fixed designs, mixing double and triple pane windows, or possibly all triple pane.

I have never sold any of their entry doors as the dealer I worked for at the time sold mainly very high end builders on Long Island and we sold mostly wood windows and doors. That said we used a company that made custom mahogany doors and never did any type of fiberglass or composite doors. That being said I had a friend of mine use their entry doors and I saw several on display at both the vendor I used and when I was at the Kolbe plant and I was impressed by the quality of them. The locking hardware is the same they use in the french doors and is very high quality and made by Hoppe. As a side note one of the selling features here on Long Island was the fact that their doors are a true height not undersized and at the time they offered a true New England style Solid Wood Sill for their doors.

RE: Kolbe Front doors

thanks for the feedback. I assumed they would be quality since the windows are as well. If I go with this window package, I might get all the doors from them as well. I did feel like they were sort of limited on the decorative glass options however. But that may just be what is posted on the website.

Yeah I do not remember as far as that goes but I would check with them on that.

Thank you for the positive feedback on our window and door products! We have many options when it comes to our fiberglass doors. In terms of decorative glass, there are 12 different standard patterns and we also have the capability of utilizing custom glass. Please see the attached link to browse all fiberglass door options.
