FAQ

Garage doors vary according to size, strength, level of customized design, insulation value, etc. Our sales staff is trained to provide you with the information you need to find the right door for your home.

We give free estimates for sales of doors.

Overlay Collection recommends you to use a professional installer.  Please call one of our sales reps for more information.

Garage doors are the single largest moving objects in your home or building. Their installation is highly technical. Springs can be particularly dangerous and proper installation is critical to the performance of your door. Overlay Collection recommends you to use a professional installer.  Your professional installers can typically install a door in only a few hours and are careful to make sure safety requirements are met. Please call one of our sales reps for more information.

Overlay Collection steel based overlay doors offer many benefits including the following:

  • Steel based doors are low maintenance.
  • Steel based doors have longer warranties than solid wood doors.
  • Insulated steel based doors are far more energy efficient than solid wood doors.
  • Steel based doors provide more stability and structural support.

Overlay Collection 7 Series combines steel’s benefits with a beautiful wood exterior. It is a perfect blend for homeowners seeking the beauty of wood with the advantages of steel.

Insulated doors help keep your garage more comfortable for you. This is especially important if you have an attached garage where any air in the garage can travel through the doorway to your living area. If you use your garage as a workshop, your comfort will be a top priority. If your garage is below another room in your home, air can travel through the ceiling of the garage into the floor of the room above. An insulated door will keep temperatures in the garage fairly stable to reduce the temperature fluctuation in the room. Finally, an insulated door is generally quieter and has a more attractive interior than an un-insulated door.

Yes. We specialize in engineering doors for almost any size opening. Contact our sales staff to determine the best solution for your situation.

Average Lead time is 6-8 weeks using standard material.  Lead time for special orders is dependent on the material you selected.

To install the doors efficiently, your technicians need the space to be free of debris. Please have all vehicles out of the garage during installation. Overlay Collection recommends you reach out to your installer for their specific requirements.

Yes! Overlay Collection doors can be painted with a quality latex paint. Never use an oil base paint which will cause the original finish to bubble up and peel off. With latex paint, there is no prep work needed other than to make sure the door is clean and dry before painting. If the door has any overlay make sure to use the correct paint, please reach out for more information on what paint is safe to use.

Performance requirements for your door opener depend on the weight of your door. Heavier carriage doors like the Overlay Collection Series 7 and Series 5 doors usually require 3/4 horsepower openers. 1/2 horsepower openers are often adequate for single stall Overlay Collection doors.  Reach out to one of our sales reps for the requirements for your specific door.

After talking with six other door companies, I chose Overlay Collection because I was impressed with the knowledge and follow up of their sales person. Their service technicians made sure that all three of our doors perform exactly how we want them to. You do extremely good work and our doors perform extremely well. I don’t think that there’s been any work done on our house that I am more pleased with than my garage doors!

Overlay Collection provided me with hassle-free customer service and left my garage cleaned up. No mess left behind! It was stressful enough having a garage door that wouldn’t open during a difficult time in my life, but you sent me a competent and trustworthy technician. I appreciate your company’s quick response. Thank you for a positive customer service experience.

We LOVE our new door. I can’t believe how quietly it opens. It’s really an incredible design and it looks great! We went to the State Fair yesterday, and went through the home improvement areas. The garage doors we saw were all so cheesy. Really left us feeling quite smug about our door. You can definitely count on us for referrals.
