Design of the Advantage Garage Door

The finely detailed wood-grain surface has deeply embossed panels that give a sharp, well-defined woodgrain appearance to this garage door. A unique center bead in the door pannel creates an authentic old-time swinging door look. Here is a section of the door that shows the beaded channel:
