The front of Gray’s home is getting a big boost, including a beautiful new entry door system from Therma-Tru. The makeover will be broadcast nationwide on “Today’s Homeowner with Danny Lipford” beginning the week of September 24.

The curb appeal transformation will include — Therma-Tru entry door installation, pressure washing, landscaping, painting, installing new light fixtures, mailbox and house numbers, and more.

“When I saw the contest for a new front door and landscaping I thought, ‘we so need this,’” says Gray. “Our entire family is looking forward to the whole process – being a part of the complete transformation of our curb appeal is truly exciting!”

“Curb appeal is extremely important to homeowners, whether they plan to stay in their home, are looking to sell or looking to buy,” says Mark Ayers, vice president of marketing at Therma-Tru Corp. “According to our National Home Valuation Study, homeowners who choose a stylish new Therma-Tru entry door can see more than 2 times the return on their investment.”

To assist homeowners with the selection process, Therma-Tru offers many online tools and resources. When Gray was notified of winning the contest, she “immediately looked at the Therma-Tru website to find out more about the doors they offered, and was instantly impressed with the variety of styles and colors available,” says Gray. “And the ease of use of their online customization and visualization tools was a bonus that I was not expecting.”

Therma-Tru’s Architectural Home Styles Guide offers inspiration and assistance to align personal style with the architectural style of the home. The Design Your Door tool intuitively guides homeowners through various door styles, design choices, finishes and other customization options to create the entryway that matches their individual tastes. And the Doorways App will allow the homeowner to visualize the door on their own home prior to purchase.

Gray’s entry was chosen from thousands of contestants who provided an explanation of why their home needs a curb appeal makeover. The contest offered a new Therma-Tru entry door, valued at up to $5,000, and up to $1,500 in labor and materials to enhance other elements of the home’s curb appeal.
