Exterior Doors

The garage door selected is a model 410, manufactured by doorLink Manufacturing, Inc.™ in North Kansas City, MO.  It is designed to meet the City of Wichita’s building code requirement of a 90 MPH wind load. Since it is installed in an unconditioned garage, it is non-insulated. The door is steel with a traditional raised panel design and includes a 1/2 HP chain drive operator and one transmitter.

Like the other products used to finish the exterior, the entry doors, manufactured by Therma-Tru Doors® in Maumee, Ohio were chosen for their durability and sustainability. They are all pre-hung insulated fiberglass wood edge door units and are all ENERGY STAR® rated. The wood grained fiberglass surfaces will not rot, deteriorate, rust, bow or crack. They resist denting and scratching and can be painted or stained.

Sill pans are installed under the doors to prevent moisture from penetrating into the wall below the door.View of the door to Master Bedroom from the Deck.
