We started working on our own garage door in 1989 when wood garage doors were not fashionable. We wanted our garage door to match the beautiful front door of our home thus enhancing its curb appeal. After spending a considerable amount of time researching the alternatives available to us, we decided not to spend thousands of dollars by purchasing an expensive wood garage door that would require sanding, restaining and revarnishing for yearly maintenance.
We realized that no matter how much money and time we invest on trying to get the right wood garage door, we would end up with one that would not match our front door. In addition, we would have to spend extra money replacing the motor and springs in order to operate the new “Heavy” wood garage door.
After 10 years of trial and error, we developed the right combination of marine proof oil products that would not fade, chip, or crack while delivering consistent results. Since 1999, we have been creating faux pained garage doors* that look as if they came from the same tree as your front door.
