These affordable homes are built using time and labor-saving products like the Therma-Tru pre-hung exterior door that has fiberglass skins on the interior and exterior faces, with a high-density polyurethane core for an R-value that is five times higher than wood. Bob walks through the basics of pre-hung door installation with Michael McDevitt of Therma-Tru Doors and general contractor Wes Lohr of Lohr Construction. Inside, Bob meets with Tom Sullivan of Bellawood for the installation of their natural Maple hardwood flooring. The planks are laid out to create an aesthetically pleasing non-squeak floor with rosin paper installed underneath. LeafGuard gutters are fabricated on site by GutterPro and installed to divert debris and capture water as it travels over the cover and into the gutter underneath. Inside the rooms are being trimmed out with affordable doors and trim stock. Jeld-Wen pre-hung, pre-trimmed, molded wood-fiber doors are installed throughout the house. These affordable doors come ready-to-install and are priced to include the lockset. The primed, finger-jointed wood trim from Stock Supply is cut and installed around the windows.
