Aluminium Craftsman Garage Door with Colonial Windows

The "Craftsman-style" Aluminium TGV & Batten with Colonial Windows offers a low-maintenance alternative to the traditional cedar option. 

Key properties:

- No surface maintenance required due to the Powdercoat Finish*

- Lifetime Welded Frame Warranty

- Fully customisable design including overlaid battens, windows, fixings, and insulation

- Traditional design popular amongst many styles of home including craftsman style or weatherboard clad

- Extensive warranty package on Garage Door & Opener

The Craftsman-style of garage door has been popular for years across the globe. While this style is timeless, the original use of timber requires constant re-painting or staining in order to maintain both the aesthetic and structural properties. 

While Aluminium can adapt to the moody NZ environment, the ever-changing weather from wet to dry and hot to cold causes changes in the cedar. This often leads to drying out, warping, shrinking, and cupping of the timber. Darker colours are particularly susceptible to this damage, in fact, most cedar suppliers will not warranty dark finishes at all.

*By utilising Aluminium, the requirements for constant upkeep are removed. Simply a wash with soapy water is needed to maintain the powdercoat. The powdercoat finish itself holds a 10, 15, or 20 year Warranty. With many powdercoat ranges and finishes available, there are options for every home.

This door is constructed on a Welded Box Frame with a Lifetime Warranty. Included in the low maintenance offering is your First Service Free for all doors installed within Prestige's designated Auckland area.

Scope of use

Suitable for Residential or Commercial Application

Given the Welded Box Frame Construction, this style is suitable for oversize application.

As this door is constructed from 100% Aluminium and delivered in Powdercoated finish, this door is recommended for Coastal or Salty Environments given the resistance to rust. 

Customisation Options

While the base door is available either vertically or horizontally clad, there are many other customisation options available to suit.

Overlaid battens can be used to create a border, separate the door into bays, or even be used diagonally.

Whether plainlite or colonial style, windows can be added to bring character to the home while also bringing light into the garage space.

The extensive powdercoat ranges give customisation options for the front of the garage door, but this can also be utilised internally on the hardware. The Welded Box Frame is also finished in powdercoat.

Prestige have a range of insulation options which can be used to provide thermal and acoustic protection to the garage space.

Care & Maintenance

Every garage door is different, but every door should be given some TLC to make sure it lasts as long as possible. All doors need servicing within the first year of installation, and ongoing maintenance throughout it's lifecycle. To ensure your garage door remains healthy and long-lasting, take note of the different things to look out for in our care and maintenance sheet within the downloads section and how you can deal with them.

Surface Cleaning

Maintaining the integrity of your powder coated products is just like caring for your car – and is a smart way to protect your investment. Over time with exposure to the elements, powder coatings may show signs of weathering such as loss of gloss, chalking and slight color change. A simple regular clean will minimise the effects of weathering and will remove dirt, grime and other build-up detrimental to all powder coatings. Please refer to our care and maintenance document below.
