Why Homeowners Are Staying Put And Remodeling

With real estate prices so inflated, many homeowners are faced with the prospect of selling and buying at the top of the market. Based on the latest industry data, they are opting to stay put and upgrade. 

While economic headwinds like higher interest rates may temper some discretionary remodeling, the underlying demand for home upgrades is expected to keep the US remodeling industry on a robust growth trajectory in 2024 and beyond.

When viewed in this context, it isn’t difficult to understand why the remodeling market in the US is expected to reach $424 billion in 2024, up from $390 billion in 2023. 

Long Term Outlook

Exterior remodeling, including projects like new siding, windows, and doors, is forecasted to be a major driver of the overall remodeling market expansion. 

So, if you’re standing on the sidelines thinking about replacing, say, an existing entry door like so many of your neighbors are doing, if you decide to go with a custom door, it would be in your best interest for you to choose a specialist over a general manufacturer. 

The Competitive Edge Is Specialization 

Most manufacturers are more focused on producing standard size doors for new construction projects. Although ordering a custom-sized exterior door can eliminate installation issues and extra labor, they may not be able to get it to you for months if at all. 

That’s why we work with ProVia. It specializes in working with the remodeling industry, so every door that is assembled in their plant has been custom ordered. 

By building only doors made to order, ProVia can provide sizes, options, quality and service unavailable with other door manufacturers.

Custom Fits

If you have a door opening that is unusually wide or narrow, a mass manufactured door isn’t going to work around your specs. Unlike consumer-grade doors, which are cut down to fit your need, ProVia’s professional-class custom front doors are built to your exact measurements. 

This allows for a better fit and a more secure, energy efficient door that doesn’t make you sweat about wall damage or unsightly paint lines when the original door frame is removed. 

Smooth Operators 

ProVia’s 2½” and 3½” interior casing provides additional coverage of the door frame area so that we won’t have to do extra work to fix the wall when we come to your home to install it. 

Even the casing styles are custom so if you have, for example, Craftsman-style trim that you want to match, ProVia offers custom casing styles to preserve the design integrity of your home. 

Universal Design

Should you need to replace a door to meet American Disabilities Act standards, ProVia can provide entry doors with a lower threshold consistent with the principles of universal design.

Since Provia ships entry doors as a complete ProVia Entry Door System, the brickmold cladding for the exterior and the color-matched casing for the interior can be ordered to ship along with the system, saving your installation crew assembly time. 

Choosing a ProVia custom front door ensures that your entryway will be more secure, energy efficient and durable, significantly upgrading the door you are replacing. 

But appearance is an important part of the decision as well, and ProVia’s fiberglass doors and steel entry doors are curb appeal game changers. 

The wide variety of configurations, stain or paint finishes, decorative glass styles, hardware, and options including pet and speakeasy doors, kickplates, and Craftsman-style hinge straps will provide you with ample opportunities to create your own unique design.

This level of customization and quality craftsmanship allows homeowners to create a truly unique and high-performance entryway that complements the style of their home.

Another important distinction is how your entry door is finished. Most doors purchased through other manufacturers have to be painted or stained by the contractor at their location or yours. 

ProVia paints or stains all its doors in a professional process that enables us to ensure a superior finish and provide a warranty on the finish of the door against flaking, checking, blistering or peeling for 7 or 10 years, depending on the product.

Or say you’re looking for a door tinted in a specific shade beyond the wide color palette that is already available. No worries. ProVia can match any Sherwin-Williams paint and stain color.

Do you want one door style and color to complement the inside of your home, and another to match your home’s exterior? Who doesn’t? 

Since Provia builds each door from scratch, we are able to mix and match different panel styles, skin types and colors to match your exact specification.

Buying a new front door is not an inexpensive purchase, no matter where you go. The key, however, is that it’s a purchase you won’t make often, so select an entry door that can provide you the highest level of satisfaction for the many years you’ll own your home.
