Steel Garage Doors

The “Plain Jane” sectional door used by most Valley builders is made from steel and has and embossed design in the sections. This design can be “short panel” or “long panel. The doors are usually not insulated although insulation is an option. Windows and designs can be added to give character to your door. Most manufacturers offer various factory painted products in a variety of colors.

Wood Garage Doors

Wood garage doors come in two basic styles. The first being a true wood garage door and the second a wood overlay placed over a steel garage door. The second choice was developed because of cost but either choice tends to be expensive. The doors are high maintenance but will dress up the front of your garage and home.

Ultra-Grain Finished Doors

Clopay Ultra-Grain is a distinctive and affordable “stained wood look” door option for homeowners in the market for a high-quality insulated steel garage door.

Clopay’s Ultra-Grain painted steel surface simulates the appearance of stained wood door without the maintenance requirements of the real thing. The grain runs in two directions, both horizontally and vertically, following the stiles and rails. This detailing, along with the stucco surface texture on the door, provides a more natural looking appearance.

No special maintenance is required to preserve the finish, beyond standard garage door manufacturer recommendations to wash and rinse the surface periodically.

Ultra-Grain is available on Clopay’s vintage style polyurethane insulated Gallery Collection garage door in three finishes: Medium Oak, Dark Oak and Walnut.

Polyurethane insulation delivers twice the thermal performance of polystyrene insulation of the same thickness. It also adds strength and rigidity to the door panels, which helps reduce noise and minimize unsightly dents and dings.
