  9. 9. Who’s Painting/Staining Your Door? Did you know that when you buy a door from a big box store that it generally doesn’t come stained or painted? Most door manufacturers ship unfinished doors, making applying the finish the job of your installer or a subcontracted painting company. With ProVia, custom entry doors are hand-stained or professionally painted, right in our plant.
  10. 10. Who Paints, Stains Your Door Matters Understanding who will be responsible for staining or painting your new entry door is important as the finish will be one of the most noticeable qualities of your door for a very long time. Most door companies offer a 90-day to 1-year warranty on finish. At ProVia, our professional stain and paint processes enable us to offer a 7- to 10- year warranty, depending on the product. Learn more about ProVia’s professional finishing processes.
