The garage door is often your home’s first impression on visitors, so aesthetics truly matter. But, these doors are prone to significant wear-and-tear, so homoeowners investing in a garage door want beauty that holds up to the elements. Add energy efficiency to the list and the gauntlet has been thrown to the garage door manufacturers. Wayne Dalton has responded with the industry’s first fiberglass-clad steel garage door. Its integrated fiberglass surface gives the appearance of real wood without the unattractive splintering and cracking that plagues wood garage doors. Pinch-resistant panel joints increase door safety, and a high insulation value brings energy efficiency and noise reduction to the home. The surface can be painted, stained, or ordered with a factory finish, which includes oak, walnut, and mahogany. This garage door offers the benefits of a steel door and the look of real wood. Available through Wayne-Dalton dealers, the new doors will be sold in seven and eight-foot heights, and widths of eight, nine, 16 or 18 feet.
