Energy Efficient Entry Doors from Therma-Tru®

According to the 2012 National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) 'What Home Buyers Really Want' study, consumers focus on quality and appearance when looking at new entry doors for their home. Gaining in popularity are steel and fiberglass doors because of their energy-efficiency and durability.

"Savvy home buyers are doing their research and making energy efficiency a priority while simultaneously selecting products that meet their desires for quality and appearance," says Brad Johnson, vice president of marketing for Therma-Tru® Corp. "Fiberglass and steel exterior entry doors meet all of these quality and appearance desires for home buyers. 94 percent of the doors we offer meet ENERGY STAR® requirements."
