Carriage House Collection Garage Doors

Don’t be fooled by imitators! The wood overlay garage door is a Door Tech original. It all started with a customers request for an affordable wood garage door. Since then we have developed a whole product line dedicated to wood cladding.  We start with a high quality 2″ thick insulated garage door section and then both chemically and mechanically fasten the wood of your choosing to the exterior. We use a proprietary adhesive designed specifically for this purpose. This ensures your wood clad garage door lasts a lifetime.

The owner Luke is one of the most professional, thoughtful and detailed people I have come across. The company does A+ work at a very competitive price. Having dealt with MANY remodeling projects, his company is one that I KNOW you will not be disappointed. He shows up when he commits, he will work with you on the smallest details, and he communicates very very well.

Wood Garage Garage Door Design Options

Our wood overlay garage doors have an endless number of design options. These are a few of the most popular. If you don’t see what you are looking for please call and talk to a custom door specialist.

Selecting the perfect wood species will depend on several factors. The most important is to select a species that will hold up well outdoors. More importantly a species that holds up to your areas weather conditions. A couple of the most popular species of wood that are well known to hold up well out doors are as follows.

Western Red Cedar. This is by far the most popular type of wood used outdoors. In either the “knotty” form or the clear vertical grain form this species of wood holds up very well outdoors. It has several natural characteristics that allow it to resist rot, mold, and insects when used outdoors.

Mahogany would be next on the list of wood species suitable for out doors. This is a hardwood so it is heavier and more dense than the cedar. Mahogany naturally has oils in its pores giving it many of the same qualities as the cedar. This wood is often used for more of a furniture grade look for a garage door.

The texture of the wood can greatly impact the final appearance. It can be the difference between a door that looks like a fine piece of furniture and a door that looks like a weathered barn door. Everybody’s taste is different which is why we offer a variety of texture options.

Smooth – This is will give you a clean smooth finish. Much like a piece of designer furniture. In most cases the wood will be sanded to 150 grit prior to staining and then to 220 during the staining process.

Rough Sawn – This basically means we use the wood exactly how it comes off the saw at the mill. The wood will usually have a rough texture and add a rustic look when stained. The is a popular texture in our carriage house collection.

Wire Brushed – This texture gives the appearance that your door has been outdoors for years. The wire brushing technique will remove much of the softer grain of the wood leaving the harder grain behind. This same effect happens to wood with years of wind and sand blowing against it. We just speed up time and give you that look today.
