If you paint your front door after its installation, it is vulnerable to unattractive dust and dirt as you apply the finish, and the finish won’t be uniform. Unlike most door manufacturers, ProVia® offers factory-finished, pre-painted doors that deliver a perfectly curated color that lasts. Simply order your entry door in your preferred color.
When you choose from a wide variety of stain, paint, or glazed color finishes professionally applied in ProVia’s factory, you get an enduring finish with optimal curb appeal.
Read on to discover the advantages of a factory-finished entry door.
Why a Factory-Finished Entry Door Beats a Field-Finished Door Every Time
1. Consistent color
Factory-finished entry doors offer consistency in their color, texture, and coating, delivering a great first impression to your family and friends.
2. Uniform thickness
If you paint your entry door after it is installed, you run the risk of an overall look that isn’t consistent. In contrast, if your door is finished in the factory-controlled setting before installation, you get uniform thickness to your paint. You’ll enjoy a perfect look on your entry door—the home’s focal point.
3. Unmatched durability
Factory-finished entry doors are more durable than field-painted doors because they have the advantage of a proper curing process, which delivers greater long-term performance for the door’s finish. And when a door is well sealed, your home is better protected from damaging moisture intrusion, saving you time and money in the future!
4. Fewer opportunities for problems
After door installation, a fresh coat of paint attracts unwanted dust and dirt to mess up your masterpiece. That messy appearance stays with the door until you repaint it, making it unattractive. The solution to this dilemma is a factory-applied finish.
A factory-controlled environment means the entry door has less contact with dust and dirt, while having adequate drying and curing time. This creates the best possible finished product for you to enjoy!
5. Outstanding warranty
When your entry door is factory finished, it comes with a warranty. ProVia’s 10- or 15-year warranty against flaking, blistering, or peeling gives you peace of mind that your home’s curb appeal and the finish on your front door will stay intact!
6. A systematic approach to finishing
How is ProVia so sure their factory-applied paint or finish has staying power? They have a systematic finishing process done in controlled conditions in their factory.
Depending on the type of door you choose, the paint or stain process includes five to seven steps that ensure the door’s finish is smooth, consistent, durable, and weather-resistant for years to come. Some of these include:
- Proprietary pre-paint and stain prepping
- Oven-curing that ensures the finish will adhere firmly and last for years
- Stains are hand applied by professionals with many years of experience
