Overhead Door Garage Doors and Openers Featured in Nation’s Only Home Building and Remodeling Theme Park

DALLAS — Home buyers and remodelers who want to learn more about garage doors and openers now have a new, and entirely unique, way to shop  – a home showcase theme park featuring the latest in building products, décor and Overhead Door garage doors and openers.

Overhead Door Corporation, one of the largest manufacturers of garage doors and openers for residential and commercial applications, is a participant and sponsor of MainStreet America®, the nation’s first and only year-round showcase of homes. Located in Houston, MainStreet America® is designed to inspire, inform and empower homeowners to build or remodel their home. MainStreet America® features 12 home designs commonly found across the U.S., from Greek revival and modern, to traditional brick and craftsman. Each house features installed building products designed for beauty, functionality and efficiency, so that homeowners have the benefit of a hands-on experience.

“MainStreet America® is a great project for us to be involved with because it gives us the opportunity to show consumers the broad range of Overhead Door garage doors, which can complement any style of home, from modern aluminum to custom wood to carriage house steel doors,” said Joe Dachowicz, Overhead Door’s vice president of marketing. “Once inside the garage, visitors can also try out some of the industry’s most advanced garage door openers, like the Overhead Door Destiny® 1200 and the Odyssey® 1000. Both deliver powerful, fast, quiet performance while featuring bright lighting and an optional accessory that assures homeowners that the garage door has closed.”

MainStreet America® is open to the public and will host official grand opening week activities from Feb. 2 - 9, 2013.  Consumers will also be able to view the 12 homes online in order to get the latest ideas in home fashion, fine home products, interior design and curb appeal upgrades.
