Choosing a New Front Door with Therma-Tru Benchmark

November 7, 2018

When I first moved into my house I knew the front door had to go. It was a drab, builder-grade installed in the mid-1990’s. Not only was it unattractive, but it was also inefficient. During the winter months, cold air would seep in from the sides and top of the frame. When the opportunity arose to partner with Therma-Tru Benchmark, I jumped at the chance!

Here’s the “before” picture. Zero points for curb appeal! The bland white door blends in with the white clapboard siding. The front door should be a focal point and this is definitely isn’t! Luckily, Therma-Tru Benchmark has a variety of gorgeous doors to choose from.

Therma-Tru Benchmark doors are sold exclusively at Lowe’s. Our local Lowe’s had many of the styles on display so we headed over there to see them in person. The doors were great quality and the fiberglass looks and feel similar to wood. The glass inlays were beautiful!

Therma-Tru Benchmark doors are energy efficient thanks to their insulating foam core, and low maintenance since they’re constructed using fiberglass. Fiberglass doesn’t warp or split, and it resists shrinking and swelling with temperature changes.

Therma-Tru Benchmark doors consist of a complete door system including all necessary components; jambs, weatherstrip, sill and hinges in complementing finish colors. This ensures a precision fit and makes installing the door so much easier!

After viewing the doors in person, here are some of the options at the top of my list:

After much consideration the winner is… Therma-Tru Benchmark 9-Lite Ready to Paint! I loved the traditional design and the windows will let a lot of light into my living room. Also, I had my heart set on painting the door a fun color so it stands out against my white house.
