America's Ugliest Doors Found in New York, North Carolina
When the door experts at Maumee, Ohio-based Therma-Tru® Doors set out to find the ugliest entry and patio doors in America for the second year in a row, they didn't realize what stiff competition was out there. They encountered double doors plastered in hot pink, single doors that looked like they were hacked with a chainsaw and patio doors hanging off their hinges.
In the national "Ugliest Door in America Contest" with the Carey Brothers, hosts of "On the House" home improvement radio show, Therma-Tru invited homeowners to submit a photo and brief essay declaring why they deserved a new entry or patio door system from Therma-Tru.
An elite panel of expert judges from the home improvement industry waded through more than 100 qualified entries.
The two grand prize winners--Darrell and Marie Dunnewold of Clymer, N.Y., and Jerry and Gloria Schwartz of Matthews, N.C.--were announced during a live broadcast of "On the House" on April 15. They will receive Therma-Tru door systems worth approximately $3,000 to $5,000. The actual door model, style and size will be determined by Therma-Tru based on the home. Construction is set to begin later this spring.
