Fiberglass Door Manufacturers

I have had the pleasure to visit two great companies both of whom make awesome fiberglass exterior doors. It is an amazing experience to be able to walk through a manufacturing plant and see each step of how a door is made. The machinery and the processes are astounding.

To cut to the chase there are two major players in the fiberglass door market:

    • Therma-Tru
    • Stanley

There are other players, but these doors - and especially those made by Therma-Tru - are the the only ones I would consider for my own home.

Therma-Tru has been making fiberglass doors for nearly 20 years. They have perfected the process and refuse to cheapen their door. They are constantly fighting off cheap knock-offs of their styles and patterns, but these cheap impostors made overseas are no match for the real deal made right here in Ohio!

Their Own Stain

Therma-Tru also has developed their own proprietary stain system for their doors. Years ago the original stains were just ones made by traditional paint and stain companies and they did not hold up very well. So Therma-Tru decided to make their own. You can really tell the difference. Their stains are long-lasting and if you simply maintain the clear coat, you rarely have to restain the outside of your door.

Here are some other fiberglass door manufacturers. I have not used their products and cannot vouch for their quality.
