A beautiful door is the focal point of your home. But a beautiful door that also provides superior weatherability and durability can make all the difference. Classic-Craft doors from Therma-Tru offer the best of both worlds by combining the performance and strength of fiberglass with the timeless beauty of a woodgrain finish.
Proven performance built right in
When it comes to performance, nothing delivers like fiberglass. That's because fiberglass won't crack, rot, split or splinter like wood. It won't dent or reust like steel. And since Classic-Craft doors are built with a solid polyurethane foam core, they offer five times the insulation value of wood.
We've built Classic-Craft doors to provide added protection, too. A full-length wood lock stile helps reinforce the deadbolt and lockset. Plus, our proprietary security strike plate resists up to 450 points of force. We even added extra reinforcement along the door's sides, from top to bottom, to ensure maximum strength and security.
More than a door. A door system.
Classic-Craft doors are beautiful on their own. But when you add options like decorative glass, sideslites and transoms, you can customize the look of your home's exterior and take advantage of a host of performance benefits. That's because all the components of the Classic-Craft door system are designed to work together to provide the utmost in weather-resistance, safety and performance.

What to know before choosing a door
Selecting the right door can be confusing with so many styles, materials and performance features to choose from. By arming yourself with a little insider knowledge, finding the right door couldn't be easier. Here are a few things you may want to consider before making a decision.
Your home's architectural style. If your home has a traditional design, you'll probably want to choose a door that also has a traditional look. More contemporary homes call for modern doors. Classic-Craft doors come in a wide variety of styles, making it easy for you to find a door that complements your home's design.
Your home's interior design. Is your interior trim stained or painted? Will your door be open often, so that the front is visible inside your home? The answers to these questions can help you choose a door that fits your needs. The Therma-Tru Finishing System allows you to customize your door's finish inside and out, so you can match virtually any interior decor.
Energy efficiency. Save money by comparing energy effeciency. Classic-Craft doors have five times the insulation value of wood because of their solid polyurethane foam core. Look for generous weatherstripping, leak-proof door bottoms and high performance sills to maximize energy efficiency.
Security. Protect your home with added security. At Therma-Tru, we build doors that offer superior resistance to forced entry. Our doors are reinforced along the lock side to make locksets and deadbolts even more secure. We also added features like tempered glass to maximize the door's strength and security.
Warranty. Not all door warranties are created alike. Classic-Craft doors come with a lifetime limited warranty backed by one of the largest companies in the door business, Therma-Tru. So you get the peace of mind and the assurance that your door will stand up to years of use.
