Bold Red Garage Door

Wood Garage Door Finishes


Many types of wood can be used as the base for your garage door. Beyond that, you can have it stained, or painted. Bases include vertical grain cedar, incense cedar, red grandis, and mahogany.



Stains allow the wood grain to show through, while enhancing the natural beauty and warmth of your wood garage door. Oil based stains are the most appropriate for overhead doors. Paint is also a wonderful option. An equally interesting take is distressing the wood garage door, if you would like it to have a rustic, weathered look!




Steel Garage Door Finishes


Steel garage doors are among the most customizable out there. They can be painted in any color, embossed with a wood grain pattern and stained, and more. The variety of panel styles available lends itself well to building an overhead door as unique as you want.
