Entry Door Options for Kansas City, KS Homeowners Better Than Wood
There was a time when homeowners who were shopping for entry doors had few alternatives to wood if they wanted a fancy front door with a decorative glass insert and sidelights. Those days are long gone, and today’s homeowners can get the stylish, customized look they want for their home’s primary entrance while also enjoying the superior durability and energy efficiency that materials like steel and fiberglass can provide.
This is particularly good news for homeowners in the Kansas City metro area, where harsh winters, humid summers, and frequent windstorms can take quite a toll on ordinary wooden entry doors. And, even better, homeowners who love the rich textures of wood can turn to Johnson County Siding & Window Co. for a beautiful ProVia fiberglass or steel entry door that convincingly mimics the appearance of real wood.
Exceptional Energy Efficiency
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that doors made of steel or fiberglass can offer up to five times the insulating value of an ordinary wooden door of the same size. ProVia, a manufacturer that has won numerous ENERGY STAR® awards for its doors, has taken that concept to the max with the innovative Embarq® line of beautiful fiberglass doors that boast a U-factor of 0.09 – the lowest recorded heat conduction measurement for entry doors in the nation. These doors achieve their superior thermal performance through features such as:
- Extra thickness
- Dual perimeter seal
- Custom bottom sweep
- Specially engineered insulation channels in the side rails and header
Energy-efficient doors can help indoor areas maintain a comfortable temperature regardless of the weather outside with less demand on the home’s heating and cooling systems. This can translate into lower energy bills and a longer life for a homeowner’s HVAC unit.
ProVia offers two other lines of gorgeous, energy-efficient fiberglass entry doors, plus the tough-yet-beautiful Legacy™ exterior door crafted from 20-gauge steel. All ProVia doors are made to order and available with a wide array of options for color, finish, hardware, and glass.
