Sonoma Design, New Colors Enhance Wayne Dalton Garage Door Lines

Wood-Grain Color Finish in Sonoma Panel Expands Dealer Offerings

LEWISVILLE, Texas – Wayne Dalton dealers have new design options to offer their customers thanks to enhancements Wayne Dalton is making to several of its garage door lines.

Model 8300 doors, part of Wayne Dalton's Classic Steel line, now offer realistic Walnut and Golden Oak wood-grain color finishes in the Sonoma design. Mimicking the look and feel of wainscoting, the Sonoma design is available on the Model 8700 Specialty Vinyl line and offered nationwide on Models 8000, 8100 and 8200, also part of the Classic Steel line.

"The Sonoma design has become a popular choice for homeowners who understand the importance of enhancing curb appeal," said Ali Isham, brand manager for Wayne Dalton. "Plus, more consumers are in the market for a wood-door look to complement their home. The new wood-grain color finishes on the Model 8300 meet this demand but without the maintenance that a traditional wood door requires."

The Sonoma design on the Model 8300 incorporates five vertical stiles and a faux wood-grain aesthetic that is attractive and what many homeowners are looking for in a garage door.  At the same time, the introduction of the Sonoma design to the Model 8700 gives homeowners, looking for a low-to-no-maintenance vinyl line, more options for enhanced style and curb appeal. Additionally, dealers and builders on the East Coast now have the option to offer the Sonoma design on the Classic Steel Models 8000, 8100 and 8200, which were previously available to West Coast customers only.
