Entry doors are often at a loss for energy efficiency

Even with your entry door shut its materials and expansive seams can be leading reasons for your energy bills to much higher than needed. Fortunately, entry doors have come a long way over the past decade. The number one rated entry door in the United States is the Embarq, a USA-made door by ProVia which is the only door company to win the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award for Door Manufacturing.  

Embarq’s innovative fiberglass construction provides an impressive U-factor of 0.10 -- the lowest recorded heat conduction measurement for entry doors in the U.S. It is 2.5 inches thick, 43 percent thicker than industry average to allow for more insulation. It also has a dual perimeter seal and custom bottom sweep, locking in precious heat in the winter and cool air in the summer while keeping the outside conditions where they should be… outside.
In addition to being energy-efficient, the Embarq fiberglass entry door is durable and beautiful, and available in a number of styles, finishes, glass options and custom sizes.

When building a new home or upgrading an existing home invest in efficiency.  Not only will you realize immediate utility savings, but our resale value will much stronger.
