Does anyone know or have experience with wood garage door? I am thinking about installing a pair of real wood garage doors but I have heard about maintenance issues related to wood doors. I'm thinking about composite doors that have wood grain patterns. However the ones I looked...Clopay and Amarr do not look like real wood. has an interesting product but I am not sure about it. Anyone know about Fatezzi? Looks like faux wood. Not sure what it is made of. What are the pros and cons of wood garage doors? Any particular pointers to look for in selecting a real wood garage door company would be helpful.

RE: Custom Wood Garage Doors

I'll probably get pummeled by the garage door experts for writing this, but I love my wood garage door. It's from Overhead Door's Ranch House collection (Series 147) in cedar and it's gorgeous. I agree with you about not matching the look of real wood. Granted, I've only had it for a year now but I love how it looks. I've stained it twice so far and expect to do so every year. We're DIYers though, so it's no big deal to us.

I hope I don't regret my decision down the road. I'd be interested to read what some long term owners have to say. Good luck!
