what's included in provia's prehung exterior doors?

Everything you need is all in the box!

At ProVia, our mission is to serve, by caring for details in ways others won’t, and that includes all the components needed to install our prehung exterior doors quickly and efficiently. We take great care to ship all our entry doors as a complete system, ready for easy installation based on the components that you have specified in your order.

prehung exterior doors

Easy for installers. Quick for homeowners.

ProVia’s exterior prehung door packages include everything needed for installation, all in one box. All components are supported inside the box with padding, corrugated cardboard boxes, and clear wrap, to protect the door during shipment and on the jobsite.

Prehung exterior doors can be ordered to include:

  • Prehung door in the frame—our entry doors are assembled within the frame so you don’t have to put them together on the jobsite
  • Pre-finished door—the slab and frame have been finished with the specified stain or paint, and matching touch-up color is included in the shipment
  • Casing—the molding profile surrounding the frame is included, pre-cut and wrapped separately
  • Cladding—the aluminum covering for the brickmold can be attached, wrapped loose inside the box, or packaged in a separate box based on your preference
  • Mull covers—for doors with transoms or sidelites
  • Threshold—our airtight and weatherproof sill and built-in Z-AC™ or ZAI™ thresholds are pre-installed
  • Hardware—hinges, kickplate, mail slot, deadbolt, knockers and pet doors are pre-installed (if applicable), and the lockset is packaged separately
  • Installation kit—fiberglass installation and caulking can be ordered to ship with your door, along with silicone, steel drywall screws, and shims
