Faux Wood Graining on Garage Doors
The look and designs for garage doors can vary quite a bit. Manufactures haven’t really given the consumer many options to replicate real wood, they produce stamped steal with raised panels with various paint colors. This makes a perfect canvas to take it to the finish line! Make it really look like real wood!
That is where we can give the door system a whole new look and curb appeal. Our durable materials, matched with true renderings of what wood should look like.
Mastering the art took some time and energy in fabricating our own tools of the trade to give the look of real wood. Real wood on garage doors has been used in the past, but with problems being exposure to the elements, manufactures have moved away from that technology.
Our application to replicate real wood are combinations of semi transparent 100% acrylic mediums. We start with a yellow tinted primers and then clear acrylic layers tinting the hues, values and sheen’s to give the finish, the desired look. As there are many choices of woods to replicate, so can the finishes. each door will have its own unique look.
