Low-maintenance Garage Doors

Posted Monday, May 2nd, 2016


For decades, Cressy Door and Fireplace has performed numerous replacement, installation and carport conversion projects for a large number of Home Owner & Condo Associations and Property Management Companies. Every HOA or PMC has their own unique set of rules and regulations, and it is their job to assure the aesthetic appeal and safety of the community. They must ensure that any choice for garage doors and garage door openers adheres to the quality and standards set by each organization.

We understand, and that is why at Cressy Door and Fireplace, we recommend a stylish garage door that is durable, easy to maintain and low-maintenance. Vinyl garage doors are an exceptional solution. These doors won’t rust, fade, crack or dent. It is the ultimate door for easy-care living.

Benefits of Low-Maintenance Vinyl Garage Doors


While vinyl doors might cost a bit more up front than steel or wood garage doors, the low-maintenance benefit makes them the more cost effective choice in the long run. Vinyl doors require almost no upkeep. They are not susceptible to rusting, corrosion, cracking or denting. And they are definitely more impact-resistant than wood or steel doors.

Reduced Maintenance

The low-maintenance vinyl doors are manufactured with a UV-resistant technology, which keeps the doors from fading or losing their color. Also, these doors typically won’t peel or chip, reducing the need for repainting or sanding. Modern vinyl doors are made of through-and-through color, which hides minor scratches.

Improved Efficiency

Today, you have the option of having vinyl garage doors that have internal thermal insulation. These doors will reduce the loss of heat or cool air and can improve your home’s energy efficiency.

Wayne Dalton has a specialty vinyl garage door that comes in two designs. The Wayne Dalton Model 8700 is offered in Colonial and Sonoma. Choose from four color options: Glacier White, Adobe Cream, Monterey Sand, and Cape Cod Gray. You may also choose from a selection of four stylish windows with an option of etched window designs and insulated glass.
