Cedar Garage Doors

9x7s Cedar Garage Doors
We installed  these beautiful cedar wood garage doors recently. These garage doors are 9×7’s. In the picture, the cedar overlay garage doors are unstained. There are hundreds of different shades of stains to fit your needs.
All wood garage doors need to be treated in some way. You can treat them with a clear coat type protectant, stain it, or paint it. You should re treat wood doors as often or more often than you paint the exterior of your house.  Wood doors will last and look great for many years if cared for properly.
Before and After Cedar 9x7sThis customer replaced their old style wood doors with these cedar carriage garage doors. The difference is amazing.  We were also able to use their existing garage door openers to save some cash. Looks really nice. 

 

Need a Lift?

We had a customer this week that had a unique situation. He had a two car garage with two single garage doors.  He has three cars.

He came up with a brilliant idea to install a lift on one side of the garage.  That way he could pull one car in the garage, lift it up and pull the other car underneath it.

He ran into a problem after the lift was installed.  He couldn’t lift the car all the way up because of the overhead door.

He called us to get a quote on adding 12″ of high lift. We gave him a quote on the high lift as well as  a Liftmaster 3800. He has to use a jackshaft opener because a traditional trolley type opener won’t work due to the high lift.  He’s better off with the jackshaft opener anyway. It has more bells and whistles and it is much quieter.

He liked the quote so we scheduled it and got it done. What a great set up this is! It’s so quiet and clean looking. He could go ahead and do it to the other door also so it looks uniform on the inside. However, this didn’t change the appearance of the outside at all.

Here is a before and after picture from inside the garage.
