Trends in residential architecture have varied widely over the years: from Craftsman to modernistic, from neoclassical to the ever-popular ranch style homes. Drive through any neighborhood and you can see the varying styles, materials, colors, and design choices that give each home its own unique character.
One feature you may not notice? The garage door.
Notoriously overlooked in exterior design, the garage door features prominently on the front of many houses and quite literally blends into the woodwork, painted to match the home’s trim. And although the classic white raised panel door provides a seamless compliment to a variety of architectural styles, it doesn’t call much attention to itself.
Enter the woodtone door. A pop of color and an intriguing wood grain pattern breathe life into an otherwise blank space.
C.H.I. Overhead Doors has created a full line of woodtone doors that marry the appeal of real wood with the low-maintenance longevity of steel. Accents Woodtones is meticulously designed and manufactured using full color digital imaging and insulated steel to create the highest quality, most realistic woodtone doors available.
Featuring authentic, digitally imaged non-repeating woodgrains, each Accents Woodtones garage door is as colorful and authentic as real wood. Here’s how they’re made:
Step 1 – Hand-Selected Premium Lumber
The process starts with carefully selected premium lumber that is precisely milled to uncover each board’s unique grain pattern. Only the highest quality boards become part of the Accents Woodtones family.
Step 2 - Digitally Craft Each Door
High-resolution digital scanning captures each detail of the wood and allows design engineers to digitally construct each door board by board, ensuring a true non-repeating pattern.
Step 3 - Flawlessly Create Every Section
To ensure the classic woodtone appearance endures for the life of each door, the finished product is treated with an industry-leading UV topcoat, providing years of protection from the natural elements.
C.H.I. Overhead Doors has pioneered advances in woodtone technology and design, and they aren’t done yet. The newest addition to the Accents Woodtones lineup is Shoreline. Offering the classic appearance of real wood overlay doors, Shoreline features high-definition woodgrain designs overlaid on an Accents Woodtones base section. These steel carriage house doors give homeowners a factory-finished woodtone door and the durability and low-maintenance of steel.
Shoreline is available in 24 carriage house designs in Accents Walnut and Accents Driftwood.
