Is it possible to fall in love with a garage door? I would have said "no," until I saw ours installed. It seems so silly to love a garage door so much, but I can genuinely say that I am smitten. Not only does the door substantially change the curb appeal of the house, it is quiet as a whisper.
Paul Goudreault of Designer Doors in Wisconsin—seen here standing between me (LEFT) and our site supervisor Angel Leon (RIGHT)—helped us design our new wooden door so that it fits perfectly with the Spanish Colonial styling of our house. It has metal accents to match our ironwork, and we chose to paint it the same chocolate brown accent color we used on the window casings and corbels. There was some debate regarding staining versus painting the door, but we finally settled on paint. The most sun-resistant stains are illegal in California, and paint would hold up better over time.
I am looking forward to pulling up in our driveway every day and seeing this beauty!
