Real Wood Garage Doors
Custom Wood Garage Doors
by Cedar Park Overhead Doors
Cedar Park Overhead Doors builds custom wood garage doors in our workshop in Austin, Texas. After much experimentation research, we have decided that it is better for us to build our own Custom Wood Garage Doors. This allows us to ensure the quality and features of the doors that we sell. The Central Texas environment puts a lot of stress on a door and we feel that many door companies are not putting all the effort and materials required to build a quality door. In 2017 we built more than 220 custom wood doors mostly installed locally. If you are interested in a custom wood door give us a call or come to our showroom and see what we can do. If you have a certain wood that you would like to use, or you want a solid wood door, or you are interested in a Swing out door instead. We can and have built them all before. Take a look at our gallery of door that we have built and installed hare in the Austin area, Give us a call today at 512-335-7441.
We build wood covered doors here in Austin Texas. We are not the only company to do this. We believe that our doors are better. We offer better warranties and believe that we make a great door. There are very few door companies that make good doors in Austin TX. There are plenty of companies that screw, glue and nail fence wood to the side of a metal door and throw some fence stain on it to give you that Wood door you dreamed about and lasts about two years or less.
Take a closer look at the tract home builders wood doors as you are driving by at 30 MPH on your way home, it looks OK, nice even. Now get out of the car or drive the same street for 4 years and you see what begins to happen. The water that hits the door in the rain drips down the door and sits in the bottom boards of the door. The trim boards crack and warp. The nail holes open up and rust, the knots fall out and the sun fades the bottom half of the door. This isn’t just because the door was built with Cedar. It’s because the builder used a coat of fence stain that does not protect the wood from the water and the sun. To fix it, you have to paint the door with house paint and if you have to paint the door, you should have just put up a steel door in the first place. Steel doors cost less and can last longer with little maintenance. Because of the harsh sun here in Austin, we have decided to use Sikkens, a multi coat waterproof stain and sealant system that protects the door from water and sunlight. After 3 years in the direct sun, we recommend painting on a new coat of the UV protection with a brush. No sanding, no removing the old stain. It looks better with each coat.
We believe that a custom wood door that is built on a commercial metal door is the most durable and cost-effective method. This option involves using a galvanized steel 24-gauge commercial metal door and overlaying the wood onto the door. This 24 gauge steel door is strong enough to support the wood that will be mounted to it. In the event that you want a solid wood door, we can build that too. The hardware provided with our door is all commercial grade. Most of the doors we build are covered with Western Red, kiln-dried Cedar. This wood is very insect-resistant, light-weight and cost-effective. Of course, a door can be built of other types of wood as well, but the weight of the door and the cost of the wood make it more challenging. Cedar is also better at holding stain and wood preservative and tends to last longer in the Texas heat.
Warranties on our Wood Doors
We warrant the parts and labor on our custom wood doors for three years from the data of installation. This warranty covers the parts and the labor. It does not cover the wood on the door. The Wood on the door is covered for two years if we finish it with Sikkens. If you finish the door or your builder we do not cover the finish on the door or wood that cracks and warps.
Another concern with wood doors is protecting them during a new home build. If the driveway is not installed, we recommend temporary doors until it is done. We will install them for a very low fee and you can call us back when the driveway is completed. Another possible issue is if we are not finishing the doors and we install them “Naked” and it takes a couple of week to get them finished by the builder or contractor. They may change color in the sun or warp if they are rained on. It is best to protect the doors and finish them as soon as possible. If we do not finish the doors we will not warrant them against wood concerns. Finally, The wood used most often on these door is Cedar. Cedar is not a dense fine cabinet wood. The will be knots, rough spots, cracks and color variations. See our showroom doors for examples of this. If you want perfect wood, we can make them just let your salesman know.

Advertising Information. We compete with many other door companies in town. Some are door companies and some are not really true door companies, i.e. they ‘dabble’ in it. Our advertising states that we will beat any valid competitor’s price. We want you to know the guidelines we apply to this statement:
The price comparison must be from a real garage door company to include companies listed in the phone book as a garage door company or other company that is listed in county records with DBAs and a valid TAX ID. The valid companies can also include retail establishments, such as Home Depot and Lowes or similar stores. As an example, we will not compete with a quote from a painting company for a garage door install, or a handyman or a “brother-in-law.”
The price quote must be written or printed on a company estimate and a copy must be presented. The quote must also include a visual inspection of the site to ensure accuracy of the job. We will quote exact prices based on the estimate. We will match or beat prices on the items that we have in stock for that particular item. We may or may not compete on labor charges based on the site inspection. We will compete on used or non-standard items at our discretion. Hope this sounds fair.
