All the pro-via options have the same panel style and same glass options as all the big-box brands. I'm not seeing anything more interesting than standard 6-panel doors and art-glass on their website. And they only have like 2 glass options for a half-circle transom. Not much to go on here.
But THIS is interesting:http://www.jeld-wen.com/catalog/exterio ... lass-panel
Look at the A252 or A250 in the Jeld-Wen Aurora Custom Fiberglass line. I don't see any other manufacturer making interesting unique doors like that (outside of custom wood).
The only reason I'm not jumping the gun on it is because my preferred contract said anything Jeld-Wen is junk. But I wonder if this aurora custom line would be as good as the signet or not? It might be only the lower-end Jeld-Wen lines that are junk.
The other thing I found was Albany Door Company, Inc. Just look at the line-up of door styles, there's about 4x as many options as ProViahttp://www.albanydoor.com/styles.php
And these glass options are worlds above the stock provia options (which all remind me of menards light fixtures)http://www.albanydoor.com/gallery-glass-examples.php
Anyone know if albany windows are any good in terms of quality?
If I'm going to spend 5K on a new door, I want something that looks unique and interesting and performs well. Unless I'm missing something on the provia website, it just seems to be a rather banal selection of panel styles and glass options. But provia seems hands-down the best performing/quality door around.
I'm willing to settle for 2nd best quality if it looks loads better. But I don't want a piece of big-box crap either.
