Landcaster Series Carriage Style Garage Door with Vinyl Overlay

To create the look of depth and subtle sophistication, a steel four-layer sandwich construction garage door with flush panels can be modified with vinyl to create the perfect design to match any home. The bright white vinyl overlay highlights the design of these carriage house doors. Expansion due to increased temperature is not an issue. The white surface of the overlay reflects most of the sun’s rays. Adding custom window frames and decorative hardware is sure to enhance the appearance of any steel garage door. The Vinyl overlay adds detail that defines style and can distinguish your garage door from the rest. Flush panels are built with the highest quality materials that not only look great but have virtually maintenance free exteriors. Choose from a variety of door sizes and elegant colors finished with natural wood grain texture. Get the timeless look of a wooden carriage house door with the strength and durability of steel. These long-lasting doors wont chip, expand, rot, or warp. Not only can you boost the curb appeal and value of your residence, but you also increase safety and security with a new steel garage door with vinyl overlay.

For homeowners or home builders who want the timeless look of an authentic carriage house door, including an oversize window section, built on an insulated core with virtually maintenance-free materials, General Doors offers the Lancaster Series of overhead garage doors.

The white surface on the PVC overlay as it is supplied reflects most of the sun’s rays, so expansion due to increased temperature is not a problem.  However, painting PVC can change this by creating a surface that absorbs much more heat from sunlight.  This property is measured by LRV (light reflective value) of the paint.  A lower value, usually a darker color, absorbs more heat.  If exposed to direct sun, this could cause expansion and bowing of the overlay.  Avoid painting the PVC with a paint having an LRV value of less than 55.  Doing so will void the warranty.  Painting the base steel door with a high quality exterior latex paint will not cause any problems.  Consider using a Cambridge Model door with composite overlays if a darker color scheme is required.

Window Options

Garage door windows have a great deal to do with the overall look of any garage door.  The lite styles shown here can be matched with any door design except for the barn style designs, which are solid only.
