ProVia (↗)

Brennan Enterprises is a ProVia dealer, you can find a catalog of their products on our ProVia Doors page.

ProVia’s business history dates back to 1977 when Bill Mullet and his brother Andrew purchased Hochstetler Door & Window, an Ohio window and door retailer and producer. They began offering fiberglass entry doors in 1992 and introduced Signet fiberglass doors in 2009. Signet fiberglass doors were designed to be far superior than traditional fiberglass doors and featured hardwood stiles and rails dovetailed at each corner. 

When ProVia rebranded in 2007 their new name was created to represent the company’s new category of professional-class doors.
