We were ecstatic when Jordana and Marc asked Overhead Door of the Northland to be a part of their remodel being featured in Midwest Home Magazine! They chose a very dramatic glass and metal door from our new (Name) line, that fit the exterior of their house so well! The best part, according to Marc? You can open it with an app from anywhere in the world. That means he can let the kids or workmen in, while he is sitting at his desk at work! Jordana describes the garage doors as her “salvation.” We don’t know if there is a better compliment we could get than that!
Check out the video below to see their stunning garage door (it’s featured at 3:39), as well as several other of the Minnesota made products they are using in their remodel. You can also read more about the project here.
Wooden garage doors have the advantage of presenting a sturdy, natural, and rustic look for your home. Overhead Door of the Northland supplies expert Amish-built wood garage doors in Minneapolis that can accent your home in a traditional or a modern light. While there are many styles to choose from, it is important to find the one that not only fits your taste, but also stands the test of time. Here are a few questions to consider before you commit to installing a wooden garage door:
Do you live in a humid or rainy climate like St. Paul, MN?
Do you plan on painting your garage door?
Would the wooden aesthetic pair well with your house?
Choosing the right wood to make up your door is important in addressing these questions and making sure it will last. Cedar and redwood are popular picks for their durability and climate resistance.
