Cheri’s Twin Cities Area Front Door Replacement Project

Every year, the remodeling industry’s premier publications put together a compilation of the home improvements that add the most value to a home in relation to their cost.  On a consistent basis, front door replacement always ranks among the best improvements for this purpose.  However, the material a homeowner selects plays in heavily to the value the door adds to the home, with steel outranking fiberglass.  When it came time for Twin Cities area homeowner, Cheri, to replace her 1970’s era home’s front and storm doors, her hope was to find a solution that would stand the test of time.  Here’s why Provia® doors proved to be the optimum solution.

Provia Door Install


Steel Entry Door: A feature that makes steel entry doors workable for a variety of architectural home styles is their versatility and the array of features that can be adjusted to adhere to the homeowner’s tastes. This includes color, texture, and hardware.  In Cheri’s case, she opted for a ProVia® front door with a Tudor Brown Exterior and a Café Cream interior with smooth finish.  The hardware she chose had an antique brass finish.  When it comes to security, he installation of a ProVia® steel entry door offers the ultimate peace of mind.  The lock and deadbolt area are reinforced with a rigid composite lock block.  Cheri can rest assured that the door will continue to look its best for years to come, due to its resistance to warping, fire, and cracking.  An added benefit of the installation of a steel door is its energy efficiency.  During the manufacturing process, ProVia® doors are foam filled by a computer driven process.  This allows for the correct levels of foam fill for the utmost energy efficiency.  Proprietary adhesives are utilized to lower the level of cold and heat transfer.  Top and bottom endcaps also assist in creating an energy efficient door.

Storm Door: The purpose of a storm door is to protect a home’s entry door from nature’s elements such as wind, snow, and rain.  This allows the more expensive entry door to last as long as possible.  In addition, a storm door assists in promoting airflow throughout the home.  Cheri’s ProVia® entry door came with an InVent™ top screen.  The storm door also acts as an additional layer of security, which will act as deterrent to potential intruders.  It will also allow for additional natural light to enter her home.

"The windows and doors are the highest quality. The installation was spot-on and fast. The guys who installed the doors and windows were kind, friendly, helpful, and they cleaned up the entire work area after the installation even the windows were cleaned. I would recommend Lindus Construction to anyone thinking of replacement of doors and windows. Extremely happy customer. "
