The curb appeal of your home can make or break a sale. Get the curb appeal right, and you can potentially add thousands to the value of your home. However, as a fellow Florida resident, you know there’s more to your front door than just its looks. Your front door needs to be energy efficient to help keep your home cool and strong enough to keep your home protected in a storm. The Therma-Tru Doors from Plastpro deliver top-quality looks and performance for your Florida home.
Why Consider a Fiberglass Door?
Traditional exterior doors were made from wood. Steel and fiberglass have become more popular as these materials are lower maintenance and more durable. Fiberglass doors are made with a rigid core made of fiberglass, which is a fiber-reinforced polymer. Covering the core is a skin that’s finished to mimic the look of real wood. These doors resist cracking, shrinking, expanding, and bowing like real wood. They are also lighter than steel and won’t rust or rot like steel. The upkeep for a fiberglass door is minimal.
This unique feature is exclusive to Plastpro and helps to protect the doors from moisture infiltration. This makes them ideal for use in Florida, where home experience records numbers for humidity.
Extreme heat in Florida makes it a challenge to keep a home cool while also maintaining an affordable energy bill. The higher quality and additional insulation in Plastpro doors help to insulate homes better by reducing heat transfer through the door. This helps to keep your home cooler for more efficient energy usage.
Each door produced by Plastpro is WBD-rated to give you the highest level of security. Unlike other security doors, the wood grain finish ensures you never have to comprise design for security and safety.
Fiberglass doors go through expensive testing to ensure they are strong enough to withstand heavy impacts. This makes them a smart choice for regions that are prone to hurricanes, like Florida. Most of Plastpro’s standard doors are Wind-Borne Debris WBD-rated. These doors will give you a solid level of protection and security. However, if you’re looking for a bit more, Plastpro’s High-Velocity Hurricane Zones (HVHZ) are certified to withstand hurricane-force wind speeds and debris. Unlike other manufacturers that use a foam honeycomb core and steel skin, Plastpro uses an extra thick fiberglass skin and HydroShield Technology for better performance.
Customize the Look of your Home
Your home should be unique to you. Because your front door plays such a big role in your home’s first impression, the front door that you choose should reflect your personal style and taste. Your front door also needs to blend well with the design of your home. This means that a one-size-fits-all approach just won’t work.
Paltropro has several design lines that give homeowners a wide range of options.
The Limited Series has a truly unique look that’s perfect for Florida homes. The doors showcase the beauty of Knotty Alder and Teak with rich graining, knotty detailing, and interlocking designs. This gives your home a luxurious yet geographically authentic look.
