Residential Product Launches and Innovation Lead to Recognition
LEWISVILLE, Texas – An annual poll of garage door industry professionals has named Wayne Dalton as the industry’s top manufacturer of residential garage doors.
Professional Door Dealer’s 2013 Best of Business poll awarded Lewisville, Texas-based Wayne Dalton first place in its “Best Residential Doors” category. This industry honor follows last year’s first place recognition of Wayne Dalton in the “Best Commercial Doors” category and demonstrates a significant increase in Wayne Dalton brand preference among independent garage door dealers.
“We’re incredibly honored that our industry colleagues selected us to be a Best of Business winner for two years running,” said Ali Isham, Brand Manager of Wayne Dalton. “We work hard to provide our dealers and customers with a wide selection of high-quality residential and commercial products, and this year’s award, on top of last year’s, recognizes that commitment.”
Over the last 12 months, Wayne Dalton has introduced a number of new residential garage door models and designs into its portfolio. Those include the new carriage house-style Model 6600 steel garage door, a new bi-directional wood grain finish on the Model 8300 Sonoma panel design, as well as the addition of the Sonoma panel design to the Model 8700 Specialty Vinyl line and the Classic Steel 8000, 8100 and 8200 models.
The company’s extensive selection of residential doors – available in wood, classic steel, aluminum, fiberglass and vinyl – are built to complement virtually any architectural style while satisfying the personal taste of a wide range of homeowners. Combined with Wayne Dalton’s color, window and decorative hardware options, Wayne Dalton dealers have the ability to offer their customers virtually unlimited customization.
