ID 100206688Kristen Bosse of Georgia State Homes was kind enough to do an interview with Brian Clark, our Director of Sales and Marketing in an effort to get to know more about our business and why we do what we do.  We have copied a part of the interview here and have included the link where you can read the article in its entirety.  Thank you Kristen, for taking the time to get to know about us! Enjoy the article!

 

Can you briefly go over the main options that homeowners need to decide on when they're considering a new custom garage door?

Whether it is a replacement door or for new construction, a great place to start is your local garage door dealer who's familiar with what's out there. Here are some key topics for discussion with your dealer about your composite door purchase:
Can I have any design I want?
Would I like to add windows to one or more sections?
Can I have any color that I want?
Can I match a wood that I like or that is already on my house?
What level of insulation is appropriate?

 

What are some of the most popular garage door styles and features for most homes?

In terms of style, customization is what distinguishes us from the rest. Our attention to detail and dedication to quality are the cornerstones of our success. We do have some designs that are requested more frequently than others, but when it comes to a custom composite door, the design and finish are as individual as the owners and their homes.

As for features, you may wish to incorporate windows into your door or embellish the door with some decorative hardware. It's totally dependent on your vision.

 

How well do your garage doors stand up to the environment?

We have a large number of our doors installed in Florida. That is one of the harshest environments anywhere with its extreme heat, humidity and coastal exposures. The main advantage of using composite materials to clad the door is that it is fully customizable and it is a better alternative than wood. The composites we use will not rot or decay. The finishes we apply, be it paint or stain, are from the highest quality manufacturers and are designed to stand up to all temperatures and harmful UV rays.

Is there a comparable alternative to the Jeld Wen garage door?

Jeld-Wen Alternatives

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!
