I know, I know. I promised to continue with the considerations for a composite garage door discussion I started last week. However, with Jeld-Wen’s announcement earlier this month that they are ceasing production of their composite garage doors, many people have found themselves asking this question and searching for alternatives. You may be asking yourself:
1. Is there really an alternative?
2. Will I have to sacrifice the design I chose?
3. What about pricing?
Is there really a comparable alternative? YES! There are other composite door manufacturers in the marketplace. We have been flooded with questions, and have comforted many a customer during this transition. If you already picked out a Jeld-Wen design, provide it, and see what the solution looks like.
Will I have to sacrifice the design I chose? Probably not! The benefits of custom manufactured composite garage doors are numerous. If you like a specific design, then get it! If you like a specific design but want to make some changes, even better. It’s your house; it’s your garage, and you should have your heart’s desire!
What about pricing? I think you will find that apples-to-apples, pricing should be comparable across the board. Jeld-Wen made a good door, but rest assured, there are quality solutions available.
So rest easy. The same benefits that attracted you to Jeld-Wen are available through a few select manufacturers!
