I hale from the South Hills, just over the line in Washington County.
The companies on my list are Precision, Rowco, 84 Lumber, Costco,
Lowes, and Overhead - arbitrarily ordered. I should add Johnson Door
from little Washington. They did a great job on the first door and now
I'm reconsidering steel. But I think they only carry Clopay. I am not
too keen on Clopay having read some things here. Thanks for the tip on
I think you are right about the steel within the door. It also has
steel for hinges and brackets.
I am interested in this, having tired of painting my wood door. if i
get some time i will check a close by door company. I recently repaired
my door, some new pulleys etc. need new more energy efficent door and a
opener which i never had. although i use my garage for storage, never
had a car in there
i am in the n hills by northway mall

My wood door was literally rotting away at the bottom. It was replaced
by viny 6 years ago. The conditions have not changed, i.e. it's still a
wet area, but I no longer fear water. The steel bits at the bottom of
the door have a little a rust but the cables are fine.
Why do we call it a garage? It's really a storage area with a BIG door.
