ProVia Signet vs. Jeld Wen Aurora Entry Door

Posted by pcweary (My Page) on

I have seen quotes on both of these fiberglass entry doors. There is a $3500 difference between them with the same specifications and both companies are reputable installers for their respective brands with excellent ratings.

Is there something I may be missing to have such a price difference?
Is there a difference of quality between the two brands?

Thanks for any input as I know nothing about doors.

Provia is a much better quality door and system as a whole. Anything Jeldwen in a door is just ok in mine and most of the pro's opinions.

I don't know every product that Jeldwen offers, but they are essentially a clearinghouse of lower end companies that failed such as Norco and others. My experience is that "ok" would be high praise. That said, again, I've not seen this particular product so I can't say for sure. One thing that I can say with confidence, is that the ProVia Signet is one of the finest doors that you'll find. Elite quality... If the price is above your budget, the Heritage is a step down but still very nice. There are some other quality products that you may find to be a little bit more budget friendly as well, like Thermatru and Homeguard.

From what I have researched ProVia, in print, seemed the better product.
The Aurora for a six panel door, no glass, sidelights with 4 panes, was
$9,000 and the ProVia was $5400 and included new frame which the Aurora quote did not.

Hardware is extra on both. Each quote was inclusive.

Sounds like a reasonable price on the ProVia. I'd disqualify the other choice based on the information given.

+1

If the prices were reversed, then it might require some thinking. In this case, the Provia is the better selection and at the better price.

+1 on Provia.

ProVia is worlds above Jeld Wen and ThermaTru in terms of quality.
HMI also make a solid door.

Thank you all for your help. My ProVia Signet door in Mahogany with Hazelnut stain color was installed three days before Christmas and I am very happy with everything. Again, it was thanks to you that I ended up with choosing this beautiful door.

Great choice and a beautiful door. I'm glad you invested in quality opposed to a Home Depot or lowes door.

Very nice looking entrance system!

Thanks for your kind remarks..I do not mean to belabor the issue but I neglected to mention that those are custom solid mahogany jambs stained to match the fiberglass door.
Forgive me, but aesethics were more important to me than maintenance and yes it ended up costing more. I would not be happy with the aluminum cladding.

I will say I agree that the frame looks much better on the Mahogany.

VERY high end look. The nice thing is that your porch seems to be fairly well covered, so that should minimize the abuse that it will see from the elements.
