Yes, we install and service garage doors year round.

Steel garage doors can be painted in the color of your choosing, with 100-percent acrylic latex paint. Some doors can also be powder coated, and we offer 1800 powder coat colors to best complement the look of your home or your facility.

R-value is a standardized measurement of thermal efficiency. The higher the R-value, the greater the garage door’s insulating properties. Active Door offers a wide variety of insulated garage doors for residential and commercial applications, with a broad range of R-values designed to meet any need.

If your garage door does not operate, the door is a potential hazard. Do not try to fix on your own, instead contact a professionally trained garage door dealer. Another reason to replace a garage door is to enhance your home’s curb appeal. According to the 2010 Remodeling Cost vs. Value Report, garage door replacement is the #2 remodeling project in regards to return on investment. Lastly, your current garage door may be fading, sagging and just in need of a replacement. If you have a wood garage door that needs re-painting, replacing it with a new pre-painted steel garage door may be a better value.

A Carriage House door is a type of garage door that replicates the look of doors found on carriage houses in the early 19th and 20th Century. Active Door distributes a variety of striking carriage house designs made from three different materials, steel, wood and composite. These garage doors look like they swing open, but they actually move up and over your car

Yes. We offer residential doors in widths between 4′ and 20′ in one inch increments and in heights between 6′ and 12′ in 3″ increments.

2-3 week is typical in most cases. However, some custom and wood doors can take as long as 4-6 weeks
