Step-By-Step Entryway Installation Video Available
Maumee, OHIO, (April 13, 2012) - Contractors needing inspiration and education on replacing an entry door in an older home can now find both at www.youtube.com/thermatrudoors. The newly-posted “Old House, New Door & More” video shows step-by-step instructions on the removal of the door on a 100+ year old home and its replacement with an energy-efficient fiberglass entry door.
Licensed contractor Mark Clement offers insights on the removal of the older door, lead-safe practices and tips for installing the new Therma-Tru® Classic-Craft® Canvas Collection™ door with a decorative Augustine® doorlite. Fypon® urethane crosshead and mouldings were then used to enhance the entryway surround.
“Remodeling older homes is always a challenge, especially if you want them to retain their period charm while being upgraded with today’s most energy efficient products,” says Clement, host of the MyFixItUpLife radio show. “This video showcases the exact steps contractors can use to easily swap out an entry door on an older home and add urethane trim to accent that new entryway.”
Therma-Tru created the video, which is also posted at www.youtube.com/thermatrudoors, to educate contractors on the exact steps necessary to successfully enhance an opening and install a fiberglass entry door.
