What a difference a new door can make. A worn-out front door is a real eye sore that makes our home look dated. Take a look at this Arlington Heights home of Woodland’s Ugly Door Contest winners. The owners nicknamed their original door “mouse maze” entered their ugly entry way photo in this year’s contest garnering 354 votes to win a new Therma Tru entry door.
The owners selected a Therma-Tru Smooth Star Mahogany Door. The style is Saratoga and they selected Maple Park glass with black nickel. Their hardware selection is a Schlage smart system in brushed black.
The Old Door Still Works
There is something about an old entry door that could have been replaced years before and yet it still welcomes its occupants’ home and keeps intruders away that brings to mind a quote by Dr. Seuss, “You’re in pretty good shape for the shape you’re in”. The reality is that it rattles in the wind, bugs slither in from the top, sides and bottom and the latch no longer lines up with the frame. Why not take a leap like this home in Bartlett with a sophisticated Therma-Tru Fiber-Classic Mahogany wood grain door, custom stain with 4-block dental molding, sidelites, and a Schlage aged bronze keypad? Fiberglass entry doors are the best choice for our rugged Chicago weather.
Ready for Curb Appeal
This third home in Geneva had a very ordinary entry door and now it has true curb appeal. The homeowners used their imagination to transform the look of their porch and entry. The owners selected a Therma-Tru Classic Craft American Door, 4-block dental molding, sidelites. And Schlage satin nickel hardware. They created a custom stain with Woodland’s pre-finishing center.
If you entered our Ugly Door Contest and didn’t win or if you find yourself coveting your neighbor’s entry door, remember the words of Dr. Seuss, “You’re in pretty good shape for the shape you’re in”, and you’ll feel better. Then again, you might also feel better if you replace your unsightly, leaky or malfunctioning door with a new Therma-Tru entry door. Visit our Door Design Center.
