2023 Door Project of the Year

Esh Builders' "Door Project of the Year" Transforms Home and Enhances Security

The entrance to a home is more than just a point of entry; it symbolizes the transition between the outside world and the sanctuary of one's personal life. Recognizing the importance of this threshold, Esh Builders recently completed a transformative door replacement project that not only resolved critical structural issues but also significantly elevated the home's curb appeal. Dubbed the "Door Project of the Year," this undertaking showcases our commitment to excellence and attention to detail.

Before & After

Addressing the Underlying Issues

Originally, the homeowner faced a pressing problem: the front entry door was succumbing to rust and allowing water to penetrate the home. This moisture intrusion had gone so far as to necessitate the replacement of not just the faulty door but also the compromised framing and flooring around the entryway. Esh Builders' intervention was timely, preventing further damage that could have led to more extensive and costly repairs.

A Custom Solution from Provia

To replace the deteriorating door, we selected a custom-built entry door from the renowned Provia's Signet line. This choice reflects the company's preference for high-quality, durable materials, and bespoke craftsmanship. The door and complementary components boast a series of impressive specifications:

  • Signet Single Entry Door in FusionFrame Textured
  • 36" x 80" Nominal Size with a 14" Sidelite Width
  • A unit size of 68 5/16" x 105 3/16"
  • Rustic Bronze color scheme throughout the frame, mull cover, and caulking
  • Enhanced security features, including a Lifetime Satin Nickel Electronic Keypad Deadbolt

The attention to detail is evident in the additional elements chosen to complement the door:

  • Satin Nickel Ball Bearing Hinges with Steeple Decorative Pins
  • An auto-adjusting threshold and a security plate for added stability and peace of mind
  • A comprehensive installation kit, complete with composite shims to ensure a flawless fit

Curb Appeal and Market Value

The result is not merely a functional fix to a leaking door but a stunning enhancement to the home's facade. The Signet door, with its rich Rustic Bronze hue complemented by the elegant hardware, has provided the residence with a striking visual upgrade that neighbors and passersby cannot help but admire.

The seemingly simple act of replacing a door has profound implications for curb appeal and, by extension, the property's market value. Prospective buyers or visitors receive an immediate impression of quality and care, which translates into tangible benefits for the homeowner.


Esh Builders' "Door Project of the Year" stands as a testament to the power of professional intervention and the value of investing in one's home. By choosing Esh Builders and their Provia Signet entrance, the homeowner not only rectified a critical issue but also invested in the beauty, security, and overall integrity of their home. This project serves as a shining example of how the right partnership and materials can turn a home improvement necessity into an opportunity for transformation and enhancement.
