Overhead Door is a part of the The Green-Grossfield Project!

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.

Are Wood Garage Doors For You?

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. MDO panels has a grain free surface for a smooth finish. Wooden garage doors look great against other natural materials and colors that compliment brown.

If a wood garage door is not for you, we hold many other alternatives such as manufactured wood and faux wood garage doors that are made with steel or fiberglass.

Contact us today, to learn more or get in help in selecting the perfect garage door for your home.

Tips for a Cooler Garage in the Summer

Avoid a Garage from Overheating

Garages can sometimes turn into an oven during summertime, which magnifies the summer heat. Here are a few tips to surviving a hot summer in your garage:

  • Pick a Light Color – If you live in an area that known for hot summers. Take that into consideration when it comes to purchasing your garage door. Dark colors absorb heat while light colors reflect heat. Choosing colors such as white, off-white, or beige will help keep the heat out.
  • Insulation – The insulation of your garage plays a huge role in how hot your garage will get. Wood garages are natural insulators so they will repel heat. Consider adding insulation around window, doors, walls, and ceiling to keep the garage cool.
  • Bust out the fan – Keeping a fan in your garage to help circulate the air will reduce the heat.

If your garage door looks old, unmaintained, and run down, buyers will assume the inside of your home will be the same.

A New Twist on a Classic

Steel Garage Doors

Many home renovations focus on the interior of the home rather than the exterior. When homeowners decide to give the outside of their home a face-lift, they tend to think of landscaping and house paint. Garage Doors can make a huge difference to the look of your home.

Steel doors for your garage are a great way to add style to the outside of your home. A copper door paired with the natural wood or stone on the outside of your home is simply stunning (Shown Above). Or a silver steel door with a painted backdrop is also beautiful to behold.

For your steel door installation, look to Overhead Door Northland.

Choosing a Garage Door For Your Home

Great Garage Door Options

When searching for the right garage door for your house, it’s common to get overwhelmed. There are a lot of styles and materials in which you can choose from. To help out with this decision, we’ve compiled a few explanations and options that can work with a myriad of homes.

  1. Steel Doors: When selecting the right door for your garage, steel is an excellent option. Invented by Overhead Door in 1923, steel garage doors are the most popular choice for residential garage doors. Mainly because they are available in a number of styles and require very minimal maintenance.
  2. Fiberglass Garage Doors: Our fiberglass doors have a molded fiberglass surface over the insulated steel door. The result is a garage door that performs similar to a steel door but has the appearance of wood. You get low maintenance and high thermal efficiency. Perfect for these winter months!

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or need a garage door repair!
