Street facing metal garage doors are a tough design problem to overcome. If a beautiful wood door system like Clopay is out of your range but you still covet the look of wood, you are in luck. Rick Medlen of Creswell, OR has invented GarageSkins. This product will allow any homeowner with a standard metal overhead garage door to add the look of a real wood carriage house door in under an hour and for less than $1000.00
These patent-pending do-it-yourself panels attach directly to your existing metal garage door via the embedded rare-earth magnets and mesh together to give your basic metal overhead garage door the look and feel of a high-end wooden carriage-house styled garage door, including wrought-iron decorative hardware.
Sold as a kit, the entire system weighs between 30-40 pounds for a standard 2-car garage door, and can be installed by anyone in under an hour. GarageSkins panels are designed to work seamlessly with your existing metal garage door, allowing the door to open and close just as before. There is no alteration necessary to your existing garage door; you simply attach the magnetic panels and enjoy the look of your new door.
GarageSkins are manufactured in Eugene, Oregon using the finest wood veneers and materials. And available via garageskins.com and warrantied against craftsmanship defects for two years.
