Front Door Replacement - ThurmaTru
 
Thinking of going with this brand, the fiberglass that looks like wood to replace my current Stanley door.

Can anyone let me know if thay have had any issue with this or if it is a good brand to go with?

It is the model CCA230

I put one of these in for a customer about four years ago. A 4 panel with a 1/2 moon window. It was stained it with a solid pigment stain. Faces West and gets brutal Sun. Has held up great. Even with a black storm door the plastic holding in the window has not deformed a bit. The unit ran about $775.00 as I remember. I have no problem recommending this compamy.

Therma tru puts out a quality door. Just recently did a replacement with my front entry door with two side-lites. The door has 3/4" oak jambs which I stained with conventional wood stain. If you go with Therma tru, get their stain kit which includes the fiberglass stain and a satin clear coat finish. Therma tur has a web site which will help you with installation and staining. When you get to the staining of the door remember to put the stain on with a rag and then using their brush and another clean rag "work" the stain with the brush and dab the brush into the rag to lighten up the stain. After I finally completed the door the fiberglass looks better the and oak trim.

Best of luck with the project, rredogg
