Default Replacement Steel/Fiberglass Rear Entry Combination Door

Hi All!
I have an older home. The rear door is a combination window (aluminum slash) two panel wood door (Fir, I think). The thickness of the door is 1 3/8". Important: The width is 30". It needs replacing. I'm open between Steel vs Fiberglass. The door gets strong morning sun. At Lowes, I can get a pre-hung Steel door with the same aluminum vertical slider window I have in my present door. The one I prefer has a vinyl frame window that also slides vertically. The only problem is the minimum width is 32". That means redoing the door frame.

I have seen the exact door I want in a remodeled older home. The door was fiberglass, 30" wide, 1 3/8" thick, vinyl frame window that slides vertically. It also had room for both a keyed door lock and a standard keyed deadbolt lock above the door lock. Obviously, some manufacturer makes what I want, but I'll be damxxx if I can find out who makes the door. That's where I need help. Does anyone know who the manufacturer(s) is/are? Where would I order it? Online or retail store? I live in the Glendale/Pasadena, Calif. area. I really would appreciate any help/advice anyone can supply!

Welcome Collvan:
I'm sorry to have taken so long to answer your post.
Probably your best bet would be to go to a building supply store (Lowe's or Home Depot)and ask them to special order a door for you. They already have the connections and will know just how to go about it.

Default Weather King Doors?

Try this web site... Scroll down, number 17 and 67. I think.

Weather King Windows & Doors Inc. - Fiberglass Entry Doors

This might be what you're looking for... you'll have to call the company to find out if they make it in 30" - seems so, as it's a 'standard' door for them. But that info is actually not listed on the website that I saw...

Good luck...
