Discovering "DoorWays(TM)": The New App From Therma-Tru(R)

by Lauren Busser, The House Designers’ Editorial Director

You have used your smartphone to pay for your coffee and shop for books, shoes, and clothes, but now there is even a way for you to use your smartphone to shop for your entry doors. Therma-Tru(R) has made it easier than even before to envision your new entry door with the Therma-Tru(R) DoorWays(TM) app.

DoorWays(TM) is available in the App StoreSM and Google Play StoreSM and is designed to bring mobile shopping and visualization together into a tool for trade professionals and homeowners.

Therma-Tru Doorways App

Start by tapping the DOORS or GLASS icon to choose one of your favorite collections. If you select DOORS, the app prompts you to select one of Therma-Tru(R) Doors' most popular fiberglass entry doors, and then selecting GLASS will give you all available glass options. It's similar to using the Build Your Door tool on the desktop website, but DoorWays(TM) is specifically designed for the way people shop on their mobile devices.

DoorWays(TM) is an entry door visualization app that gives homeowners the ability to select and configure a new door as well as try it on for size before they commit to a purchase. The app also helps homeowners find a local dealer.

Inside DoorWays(TM), users will find a portfolio of fiberglass doors in popular sizes alongside decorative, privacy, and specialty glass options. With social media integration, the app also lets users share their favorite designs and configurations with clients, friends, and family. And when you are done trying out different combinations, you can send them to your nearest dealer, complete with style numbers, to get more information and price quotes.

Therma-Tru DoorWays App

Configure your door any way you want. There are built-in spaces for a door, two sidelites, and a transom. Here you can see a door configured in Therma-Tru’s(R) Classic-Craft(R) Oak Collection(TM) with Bella decorative glass and two matching sidelites.

Opening the app displays one of Therma-Tru’s(R) doors, and then it gives you a blank canvas with spaces for a door, transom, and two sidelites. You can select single or double doors and a height of 6'8" or 8'.

Configure your door by clicking on the blank space. This brings you to a menu of options from Therma-Tru’s(R) portfolio. After that, you can select any door style you like and coordinate sidelites and transoms. Another menu lets you select glass for your door.

Once you are done, you can select the “Picture It" option, which allows you to superimpose the door over a picture of your home’s interior or exterior to get a good feel for how it will actually look. The app also allows you to move your configured door around and change its size so you can get the best visual from any angle. You can save these creations to your camera roll so you can find them later and access all the product info for ordering.

View all your saved doors in the SAVE tab so you can visualize them in their new space later. Alternatively, you can email the specs to yourself or your friends to get their opinions on your new Therma-Tru(R) door.

Once you have decided on your favorite design, the app helps you locate your nearest dealer for more information and price quotes. The best part of this app is that when you build your door, it saves all the product details your dealer needs to help you order your favorite configuration.

This is a very useful tool for homeowners and builders alike. Visualization is always important when it comes to realizing your dream home, and your entryway is no different. So give the DoorWays(TM) App a try and see how easy and fun it is to find your perfect entry door combination.
