Sing Core Garage Doors
The most common problem for garage doors is the continuous exposure to the outdoor elements. Which subjects one side of the door to daily changes in temperature while the other side sees a constant interior temperature. This is where a solid wood garage door would fail and crack due to the wood expanding and contracting inside the door. This is a major flaw which requires frequent maintenance, such as repainting and resealing to prevent water damage.
Now with a Sing Core door, a garage door can have any skin from metal to old growth Douglas-fir.
Aluminum and metal skinned
Aluminum is a great option for sliding barn doors. The aluminum produces a lightweight and strong finished product. To seal metal and aluminum doors from the elements we have discovered the perfect solution, vinyl wrap.
Vinyl wrap will adhere to any door’s surface. The glue will seal out any moisture. The vinyl is fully customizable to any design of your liking and will provide full UV protection of your door. Learn how to build a true flat long lasting carriage door here.
The best choice for a wood garage door is AB plywood or marine plywood. There’s no need to worry about the plywood cracking with the inclusion of proper finishing when using Sing Core thanks to our patented and patent-pending torsion box “honeycomb” design. This is why they are used on our Sing Core homes.
A superior addition to any door is to add wood stave to the face. Our most common wood stave products are clear cedar and douglas fir. With wood stave applied, the door looks like it’s made of solid wood.
Unlike a thin .020 wood veneer; wood stave can be sanded and repaired if damaged. Making wood stave a more durable solution to high traffic areas or commercial applications.
Does your customer need a rugged wood stave skin or a thin veneer? Ask one of our knowledgeable sales engineers about the pros and cons of different skin options and they would be happy to walk you through your options.
1/8″ wood stave is all that is necessary to make your door look like it is made completely out of solid wood. But the secret inside is that your door is exponentially stronger and more stable than a standard solid wood door. Your Sing Core door is also almost a third of the weight of a comparably sized solid wood door. Being lightweight expands the choices of hardware, reduces labor costs to install, and is safer in inclimate weather. This applies to all doors with Sing Core inside; pivot doors, sliding doors, pocket doors, carriage doors, bi fold doors, and other doors with unique hardware configurations.
