Our 6th source for midcentury modern entry doors – fiberglass, from Home Depot

Midcentury-entry doorsEven Home Depot is getting into the market for midcentury modern front doors, with three midcentury modern entry door styles available on their website, for in-store delivery. The line of fiberglass entry doors — by Builder’s Choice — is available in a variety of factory paint finishes — including a pretty candy-apple red and a skylark blue — or in a primed and ready-to-paint version. Thanks to reader Kay for this tip!

Midcentury-entry doorsThe doors are available through homedepot.com only and retail for between $599-$959 depending on the style and options you choose.

Initially, Pam wondered if these doors might be made as a Home Depot “house brand” by Therma Tru, which offers the Pulse line of midcentury style doors But, I reached out to my media contact at Therma Tru, who verified that the Builder’s Choice doors at Home Depot are not made by them. She says that Therma Tru has an exclusive relationship with Lowe’s — so you will not find their Pulse line in any other big box retailer.

So far, these midcentury modern style Builder’s Choice doors are getting good reviews on Home Depot’s website.

We are chasing additional information about these doors, including (1) country of origin and (2) who is Builder’s Choice (we can’t find a website for this manufacturer.) Meanwhile, we wanted to get this info out there.

    Just bought 400 sf. of tile there for $281. A few weeks ago I noticed on Facebook that a local artist bought a retro door for an art project. Hopefully there is more when I’m ready.

  2. Cale says:

    It looks like these doors have been discontinued on the Home Depot website. Very sad because they are very affordable!

  3. Joan Becich says:

    I just saw the fiberglass door made by Therma Tru at the Medford, Oregon home show yesterday…it is called the Ari 3 lite. The same type of door is manufactured by Masonite.

    What I am looking for is a mid century garage door that has three panels, not four. Anybody with any ideas out there? It is challenging to make a very big and broad two car garage door look good!

  4. Gerry says:

    Therma-Tru now has the option of a flat profile lite frame around the door windows as well as the previous scrolled lite frame. The flat profile lite option really improves the look of the doors. I need to replace my “country style” door soon and the Pulse line with flat profile 3 lites will be my choice.

  5. Gerry Stairet says:

    I looked at the Masonite site and they have a Modern Line. It looks like the lites/windows have a flat profile frame similar to the new Therma-Tru option. Also the Masonite line has diamond lite options including having just 1 diamond lite in the top center of the door. I wish any of the door companies would features a 3- diamond or square design that would be offset similar to the old Grover from Crestview. But at least there are some more options.

    Recently ordered the 5 light with clear glass for a remodel we’re doing. Gorgeous door and the windows came marked with ThermaTru labels! Can’t wait to paint it and get it installed!
