We are building our own home and are trying to find the best quality door for a reasonable amount of money. Right now, we have information about a door from Pella. We've been told by a local lumber store that Therma-tru is the best steel entry door out there. We were told by another less reliable lumber store that Mastercraft was just as good as Therma-tru. The quote for Mastercraft for the door we want is about $200 less than Therma-tru. As we are building this ourselves we are trying to get pretty good quality materials without spending a fortune. Any thoughts on these 3 or other steel entry doors???

HI YOUNGBUILDER i have put in many doors over the last 20 years and like the Therma-tru products. but you might want to look into the fiberglass doors to me they seem to hold up better than the steel and dont get all dinged and dented like the steel doors do.also they come with a wood texture they can be stained or painted and they look great.hope this helps,good luck

Thanks for the info. I think we're leaning toward the Therma-tru and it certainly helps to get feedback from someone who's used them. We hadn't really checked into the fiberglass, but I think I will now. Thanks again.
