Houses built using natural-looking grey stone appear historic and distinctive. They call for garage doors made of natural wood that is stained grey or black but doors like these require sanding and re-staining every few years. There is another option; now we supply Clopay garage doors in two varieties of Slate Finish that look striking. They are Ultra-Grain® Oak andUltra-Grain®Cyprus.

When you see your garage do you think, “A garage door is just a door and it looks fine.” However, a suitably designed garage door can radically improve the appearance of your home.
Replacing the door on your garage is a fast and cost-effective way to give your house a facelift – that can be stunning. To illustrate the opportunities, here are fives houses where new garage doors improved their look – and value – dramatically.
If you are tired of repainting your garage door frames year after year, then Aurora Overhead Door has the solution for you. Capping is metal sheathing that weatherproofs the frames and makes them look sharp. The wood underneath is protected and will last a long time without maintenance. We have lots of colours to choose from. Contact us today for more details.
Here is an installation we just completed in Aurora, before and after. The wooden door frame is thirty years old, has been banged up and the paint is thick and peeling. The capping squares off the corners and makes it look like new!

When a door into your home enters from the garage it offers an easy way for burglars to break in.
A burglar can easily release the latch on an overhead door opener using a coat hanger. Here is a video that describes how you can prevent the latch being opened by using a plastic tie. You can also install a piece of wood that makes it more difficult to reach the latch.
When Aurora Overhead Doors installs garage doors you have the option to have weather stripping and other ways to increase security. Please inquire.
Also remember to keep your garage door closed when you are working around your home. An open door is an invitation to burglars to come and help themselves to items you store there. Here is a video from a Wichita TV station that describes the dangers.
