Custom Entry Doors

Why a custom entry door is the best option for your home.

You’ve made the decision to replace your front door and you’re ready to head down to the nearest big box store.  Hold one there!  Before you start your entry door shopping, it’s best to consider whether a custom entry door would be the better option for your home.

Most people think of custom entry doors as a solution only for the grandest of homes, new homes or homes where the homeowner wants to make a statement with personalized design choices.

In actuality, custom entry doors are a better fit to replace existing doors, especially in older homes, in situations where one is replacing a very old, original door that was built right on the jobsite, often in a size that isn’t available as a standard offering, or where the old entry door has simply worn out.

It’s a purchase you won’t make often, so select an entry door that can provide you the highest level of satisfaction for the many years you’ll own your home and your door. When replacing an existing entry door, ordering a custom-sized door can eliminate installation issues and unnecessary extra work.  Unfortunately, most manufacturers can’t turnaround custom-sized doors quickly, if at all, because of automation issues, floor space, or because they’re more focused on new construction (where standard sizes are typical).

That’s where ProVia stands out from the rest.  ProVia specializes in working with the remodeling industry, so every door that is assembled in our plant has been custom ordered. By building only doors made to order, ProVia can provide sizes, options, quality and service unavailable with any other door manufacturer.  

Have a non-standard door opening?  No problem.  Unlike consumer-grade doors, which are cut down to fit your need, ProVia’s professional-class doors are built to your exact measurements for a better fit and a more secure and energy efficient door. Are you worried about wall damage or unsightly paint lines when the original door frame is removed?  ProVia’s 2½" and 3½" interior casing provides additional coverage of the door frame area so that your contractor won’t have to do extra work to fix the wall.   Does your home have Craftsman-style trim that you want to preserve or match?  ProVia offers custom casing styles, including Craftsman-style, to preserve the design integrity of your home.   Need to replace a door to meet ADA (American Disabilities Act) standards?  ProVia can provide entry doors with a lower threshold.

Choosing a custom entry door with ProVia offers much more than design personalization, it provides the confidence that the door you are installing will be a significant upgrade from the one you are replacing, with better comfort (no drafts), more energy efficiency, more security, better performance and longer life expectancy.
