When it comes to a home, your front door is often the first impression a person has of your space. Classic-Craft from Therma-Tru has five different collections to perfectly match your style and make your entryway pop!
If you’re looking for a door that looks, feels, and sounds like an authentic wood door, but want a longer lifespan on your investment, these doors have you covered. Rather than a bullnose profile like many other fiberglass doors, Classic-Craft collections have a solid hardwood square edge further blending architectural character and detailed precision.
Plus, the doors feature handcrafted embossments that are deeper than standard fiberglass doors kicking your elegance up a few notches.
Now this is a front door we’re talking about and it will need to weather more than a few scuffs over the years. No need to worry because Therma-Tru has you covered. The doors are designed and tested to resist extreme weather conditions and the damaging effects of moisture. Each door is element protected by composite rails on the top and bottom.
They definitely will feel solid too with a 4-1/8” beam of engineered lumber running from the top to the bottom on the locking side of the door. You’re getting the best of both worlds, a natural wood feel and a thicker fiberglass skin for added durability and better long-term performance.

Painting your walls can be a lot of work, but following these three tips can help save you from making time-intensive mistakes. Steve Padgett has some useful tips to make a successful paint job.
Before painting, look for all your edges and anything connected to the wall. This is the best time to apply caulk and sealant to make sure everything fits well together. Inspect window sills, frames, molding, trim, and chair rails. You don’t want to paint over a crack and only rely on the paint to make that seal.
To get a more consistent flow from your caulk gun, start at your nearside and push the gun away from you. If you put consistent pressure on the trigger, you won’t have gaps or slumping with your sealant.
Lastly, make sure to patch up any wall holes before you paint, including large nail holes. But, instead of using a sealant, use a spackling paste or wood filler, such as DAP Crackshot or DAP Plastic Wood. Sealants dry to a rubbery texture, which is difficult to sand down.
