A Great Choice to Add Value to Your Home

Homeowners continue to look for lower cost ways to enhance their home’s value by upgrading, expanding or adding a new deck. When building decks with composite materials, on average more than 90% of the cost is recouped at the time the home is sold.

trex-deckMore Time Relaxing. Less Time Maintaining.

Henry Poor carries Trex, the leader in high-performance wood alternatives including composite decking, railing, fencing, and trim products. Decks and railings made from these materials require minimal maintenance, will not warp or splinter, and offer superior beauty and comfort. As a result you will spend more time relaxing on your deck than time maintaining it.

In Stock, Ready To Go

Henry Poor stocks the popular Trex Accent and Contours decking, and the Trex Artisan Series railing. These products afford a homeowner a variety of colors, design flexibility, and durability backed by a 25 year warranty.

To learn more about the extensive Trex product offering contact a Henry Poor Specialist.

Therma-Tru Doors Add Value to Your Home

Therma Tru at Henry PoorAn attractive front entrance not only adds to a home’s curb appeal, but can also boost its perceived market value, according to a national study commissioned by Therma-Tru. The study, conducted by an independent research company, found that a home with an enhanced Therma-Tru entryway added to its perceived value by as much as five times the cost of the door itself.

At a time when homeowners are looking to get the most out of every dollar they spend on their home, installing an attractive new front entryway is a cost-effective investment that can have a big impact.

Energy Efficient Front DoorBeautiful, Energy Efficient Entry Door Systems

Therma-Tru entry door systems are the brand most builders prefer because of their broad selection of steel and fiberglass doors and unmatched warranties. With a new front door by Therma-Tru, not only will you see an increase in comfort, energy efficiency and performance, you will also see an increase in curb appeal. Come visit our Gallery Showroom at Henry Poor to see firsthand all Therma-Tru has to offer.

Fiberglass Doors for Value and Performance

Beautifully crafted, energy efficient, secure, and easy to maintain, Therma-Tru fiberglass entry doors are a durable alternative to wood or steel. Therma-Tru fiberglass doors offer up to five times the insulation of wood due to their polyurethane foam core. Therma-Tru’s Classic-Craft® line of entry doors have an authentic wood grain look you’ll love. Learn more about our full line of fiberglass entry doors.

Replace Patio DoorSpring is Here! Upgrade Your Worn Out Patio Door

Get ready for great outdoor living by upgrading your old patio door with a Therma-Tru patio door system. These doors offer the same quality, beauty and durability found in our entry doors. All Therma-Tru hinged, French, and sliding patio doors systems are backed by full-system limited warranties.

ThermaTru Doors Eligible For Energy Tax Credit

Not only do Therma-Tru doors help save you money on energy costs, but now homeowners can get up $1,500 cash back through The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Homeowners are eligible for a 30 percent tax credit on qualifying products used for home improvements made in 2010.

To help homeowners better understand the energy tax credit and more quickly recoup up to $1,500, Therma-Tru has launched an educational micro-site on www.MyEnergyTax.com. Through the micro-site and a video, Therma-Tru simplifies the tax credit, provides the tools needed to claim the credit and offers a frequently asked questions section so homeowners can easily find the answers they need.
