** Each year, our molded door facings supplier hires a third-party testing agency to certify the exact amount of pre-consumer recycled materials that go into the production of door facings for our molded doors. These levels are subject to change, year to year, as sources of raw materials change. We post each year's results to our website as soon as they are made available.
