5 Reasons To Be Grateful for Your Faux Wood Garage Door This Thanksgiving

Maybe you just installed a faux wood garage door, or perhaps you’ve been living with one for years. Either way, you sure do have a lot to appreciate! We dedicate this blog post to your faux wood door, a part of your house that may have been underappreciated until this moment. Below we’ve listed the top 5 things to love about your faux wood garage door this Thanksgiving!

1. Low Maintenance

Even people who love real wood will admit that it can be a pain. Real wood needs to be sealed periodically or it can be vulnerable to wood rot and wood-eating pests. If you love the look of wood but don’t have the time to maintain it, your faux wood garage door is the best of both worlds.

2. Looks Like Real Wood

If you bought your faux wood garage door from Overhead Door, you’ve probably noticed that faux wood doors look impressively real. In fact, it can be hard to tell the difference between real wood and faux wood. That’s the point! The durable, ultra-beautiful, authentic appearance of faux wood has all the characteristics of natural wood, without the downsides.

3. High Value, Good Curb Appeal

Homebuyers are impressed by faux wood – because, at first sight, it looks like real wood. Your faux wood doors could even contribute to a higher sale price and a faster home sale if you decide to sell.

4. Classic Architectural Beauty

A lot of the best garage doors have classic architectural beauty, including paneling and carpenter-like details. Your faux wooden door likely has all that and more. Even if you opted for a cleaner, more modern look, your garage door probably has unmistakable architectural beauty.

5. Can Be Painted

Just like a real wood garage door, faux wood can be painted. You get to pick the color! Now and for as long as you’ve got a faux wood garage door, you’ve got the flexibility to paint your garage door and pick a color that works for you. Remember that once your faux wood garage door has been painted, it’s hard to undo – so be sure it’s the right move for you before getting started.

Friendly customer service. Bought a hard to find remote for an old garage door opener. Opener has 3 buttons so I can program both doors to it. Easy to find location right off 29th St.

I was given a very fair quote. A week later a tech came and installed. Then came back to install lock. Tech was very professional and polite. Spen time with me making adjustments to my liking. I totally recommend Overhead door to my fellow Okies.

Overhead Door did a great job. They got me on the schedule the next day and fixed my spring in 30 minutes or less. Joe was great, professional, and courteous. Awesome service, and he didn't tell me I needed extra materials like the previous garage door people that quoted me $575. Overhead Door told me a price over the phone and it didn't change. I'd recommend them every time.

Pleased with their services. Coil spring broke and door stopped working. Spoke to Ron, and less than 24 hrs later the technician had us up n running again. These guys did exactly what they promised to do, with no nonsense. I like that.
