Eden Coast Announces a New Addition to the Family!

Posted by Brian Clark on Wed, Oct 08, 2014 @ 09:15 AM

describe the imageWe have, once again, expanded the Eden Coast family! We welcomed our newest team member, Rosmery Mojena, effective September 29, 2014.  

“Rose” (as she prefers to be called) was born in Havana, Cuba.  The youngest of three children, she and her family arrived in the United States twenty years ago the old fashioned way – on a man-made boat with a paddle! Although she was very young at the time and doesn't remember much about the experience, she is forever grateful to her parents and their sacrifice in bringing them all to America in hopes of providing a better way of life. Now, twenty years later, Rose says she is living the American Dream.

She is “loving every minute of” pursuing her B.A. in Accounting and is looking forward to acquiring the real life experiences Eden Coast can offer.  She has lived in Georgia for the last 17 years, and has only been able to return to Havana once to meet her grandfather for the first time.  She says it was the best two weeks of her life!  She has two dogs and loves spending her time outside.  However, Sundays are spent indoors during the fall so she can watch her beloved Florida Gators, Dolphins and Hurricanes.  I wonder if we will have any luck converting her to a Bulldog fan!

We welcome Rose and the strong skill set she has developed over 7 years of experience in a fast paced office environment. Rose will serve as Office Administrator in our Lawrenceville, GA home office and will report directly to Duane Laricey, President.

7 Tips on Custom Composite Garage Doors

Posted by Brian Clark on Tue, Sep 16, 2014 @ 09:15 AM

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.

How can I create a unique composite garage door for my home?

Posted by Brian Clark on Mon, May 19, 2014 @ 07:58 AM

pic for blog 51514 resized 600Everyone knows that the finishing details of your home are unique and special. Have you every thought about designing your garage door in this same light? At Eden Coast, we proudly stand on our guiding principle, “If you can dream it, we can build it.” As you think about your unique design, here are some questions you may be pondering.

What if I have a very ornate or detailed design? In order to maximize every detail, we utilize a range of overlay board thicknesses which allows us to create the best detail in the industry. If you need a traditional wood color such as cedar, oak or mahogany, then it is certainly available. However, we offer the ability to further customize your “dream garage door” to match other types of wood and paint colors, including black!. Black (or any dark color) is never an option for wood doors. The dark colors increase the heat gain in the material causing wood and other less stable composite products to expand and contract significantly. This shifting of the material compromises the adhesive bond to the door and also encourages warping, splitting and cracking. The damaged material then forms gaps in which moisture can become trapped, making the wood wet and further exacerbating the problem.

Would I like to add the benefit of windows to my garage? Windows and glass options are completely customizable. Although we offer several standard designs, perhaps you have a unique window design surrounding your front door, or iron work on your front porch or terrace. You can easily build these unique details into the windows of your garage doors, too. In fact, we can create the illusion of windows without actual glazing using our “faux window” designs.

Do I need a special type of door because I live in a windy region? For our customers in wind-prone regions, we are able to furnish wind and/or large missile impact rated doors without compromising the beauty or quality construction of our products. So, whether you are in Florida, Texas or any other area requiring wind load, we’ve got you covered. Our staff is experienced with the component and cladding elements of structural design for both Miami-Dade and TDI building codes.

What sets Eden Coast apart is our dedication to you. We are committed to giving you the look you love without the maintenance of wood. Our superior craftsmanship, innovative manufacturing and finishing capabilities allow us to accomplish just about any architectural design you can imagine.
