An All-American Entrance

If you find old time details inspiring then the American Style Collection™ from Therma-Tru® is the collection for you. The designs for this fiberglass entry door system were inspired by early 1900s residential door styles and compliments craftsman, bungalow, cottage, and colonial revival styles well. These doors use AccuGrain™ technology to give them the look and feel of real wood with the durability of a fiberglass door system. Unlike doors made from real wood, the American Style Collection™ by Therma-Tru® resists splitting, cracking and rotting, making this door the best of both worlds.

Integrity® from Marvin Casement and Awning windows provide contemporary frames that can accommodate large panes of glass, but still swing open to let in fresh air. The IMPACT line has the benefit of also meeting coastal storm requirements without unsightly reinforcements. Additionally, the folded handle and multi-point locking system ensures weather-tight performance, perfect for a southern plantation style house that might weather a hurricane or a New England cottage that will experience many types of weather.
