Therma-Tru Doors in Unique Home Showcase

February 5, 2013

When the new MainStreet America park in Houston opens its doors this month, visitors will walk through Therma-Tru fiberglass entry doors in some of the 12 show homes on display. The manufacturer has partnered with MainStreet America to showcase its fiberglass doors in four of the park’s show homes.

Located on a 14-acre site, the innovative park features a dozen fully-appointed showcase homes representing many of the home styles and architectural features found across America. Homes in the interactive park range in size from 1,800 square feet to more than 4,000 square feet.

Visitors can stroll throughout each demonstration home, gaining inspiration and information by using a hand-held electronic device that can instantly scan a programmed product tag on thousands of items in the park and immediately provide visitors with buying information and other details.

“The unique concept of creating a theme park focusing on home designs, products and inspirational home messaging is very appealing for homeowners,” says Brad Johnson, Therma-Tru VP of marketing. “This park gives people the chance to dream, find new products for their homes and be inspired to make changes to their future living spaces. We’re extremely pleased to participate in the MainStreet America project and look forward to meeting visitors at the park who are interested in enhancing their homes with fiberglass doors.”

Within the first-of-its-kind theme park, Therma-Tru has provided a Classic-Craft Rustic Collection entry door with Provincial decorative glass to the Alexandria House (featuring Greek Revival architecture), as well as six Smooth-Star door systems.  The park's Centennial House (featuring Craftsman style architecture) is equipped with a Fiber-Classic Mahogany Collection entry door in a Craftsman style with Sedona glass and matching sidelites and transoms. The rear door on this home is a Smooth-Star door system with raise, lower and tilt mini blinds.

The Cross Creek House (featuring Texas Hill Country architecture) features a Therma-Tru Fiber-Classic Oak Collection entry door with Saratoga glass and black nickel caming. Two Smooth-Star door systems also are incorporated into this home.  Finallly, the Midtown House (a contemporary townhome design) features Smooth-Star 8-foot-tall doors with low-E glass for all five entrances in the home.
