DUBUQUE, Iowa -- Adams Architectural Millwork Co. has completed a project to make wood garage doors to replace existing doors.
In carriage door fashion, these garage doors open on hinges rather than roll up. True divided lites and two large panels match other doors. The arched top and rich finish color set these Sapele Mahogany doors off from others.
Custom crafted at 2-14 inches thick, the double door measures 98 inches wide x 90-1/2 inches high. A solid wood core provides strength from warping, the insulating properties of wood increase energy efficiency, and the return on investment that a new garage door provides make this a good investment.
Steps in manufacturing include getting parts ready for assembly, assembling the divided lites, glue up of the door, preparation to clamp, door frames completed, flat panels added; and doors ready for finishing.
One of the highlights of Sapele Mahogany is the beautiful graining that can be seen in the doors. A final coat of marine-grade finish with UV inhibitors only enhances the appeal of these double doors. See www.adamsarch.com.
