When you are looking for an entry door for your home or remodeling project, you have many factors to consider. First and foremost, you want a quality product that will stand the test of time and will hold up to the elements. One could argue that our entryway doors take the biggest beating of any other feature in our homes. It has to withstand weather, animals, boxes propped against it as we try to open doors and items scraping against it as we struggle with the keys. That’s why we offer the best at Gilkey Windows & Exterior Solutions and carry ProVia Entry Doors.


ProVia offers four lines of entry doors, made with fiberglass and steel and meeting the highest standards. First, Embarq™ doors feature a realistic woodgrain exterior with a fiberglass construction that is more energy-efficient than any wooden door. Available in Cherry, Mahogany, Oak or Knotty Alder, you can select from a variety of popular door styles to match your design preferences. Combine the appearance with the construction, and you’ll see why this door is at the top of its class. The door and sidelights are thicker than the standard exterior door, and it also features a dual perimeter seal to prevent drafts and energy leaks.


With Signet® Fiberglass, ProVia offers maximum customization. These doors look like real wood thanks to an embossed woodgrain with seven stain finishes for each of the four-style series. Plus, the structure is superior to standard fiberglass doors with thick hinges and strike stiles.   You can customize the height and width to your preference. If you’re a fan of old-world craftmanship where wooden grids were used to pull separate pieces of glass together, then Simulated Divided Lites would be a great option for you. This feature delivers the traditional look with the benefits of energy-efficient materials.


Customizable heights and widths are also available with our Heritage™ Fiberglass Doors. This product looks like classic woodgrain but has the strength of fiberglass. The textured doors are painted or stained with a durable finish, in an oak grain pattern, hemlock grain pattern or smooth fiberglass for those who prefer a modern, non-wooden appearance. To ensure the durability of our paint and finishes, each door goes through a five-step process.


ProVia also offers Legacy Steel™ doors as an alternative to fiberglass. These doors are customizable and available in woodgrain textured steel or smooth steel. You can also elect to have your door treated with high-definition embossing. This creates shadow lines to add depth and emphasize design elements while creating the look of a traditional panel wood door. Steel doors do require more maintenance than fiberglass since they can rust if they are scratched. However, both fiberglass and steel are durable options for an entry door.
