Why Northwest Garage Door is a Smart Choice for Your Home

ExCello works with many different garage door companies, but Northwest Garage Door is one of the best. We like them not only because they’re a family-owned company, but because they create quality doors at affordable prices our customers love.

No matter what kind of garage door you’re looking for, Northwest Door has options for you. They manufacture steel, wood and aluminum doors for both residential and commercial applications. If you choose ExCello to install your Northwest Garage Door, we will help you pick the best option and provide any necessary maintenance it needs for years to come.

Here’s an overview of some of the best residential door options Northwest Garage Door has to offer:

Popular Northwest Garage Door Options

Infinity Classic

The Infinity Classic offers the best of both worlds: the visual appeal of a wooden carriage house style door and the durability that comes from an aluminum door made with the latest technologies. Using a wood grain powder finish, the Infinity Classic looks like real wood even to the trained eye.



Few garage doors last as long as a home does, but the Infinity Classic is one of them (with proper maintenance). Made from 2” thick extruded aluminum with a polystyrene insulated core,  it’s weather resistant and durable beyond most other garage door models out there.

The Infinity Classic comes with numerous carriage house style designs; it’s unlikely you won’t find the look you want with their options. Glass window options include clear, mirror pane, plexiglass, polycarbonate, bronze, and more. For finish, choose between various shades of ash, cherry, fir, mahogany, walnut, Italian rosewood or white polycron to get a door look that compliments your house.

You can add on options that extend the life of your door, such as 25,000 Cycle Torsion Springs, Heavy Gauge Hinges, and Heavy Duty Cables. Even if you can’t opt for these improvements, Excello will take care of you if your door needs any fixing or maintenance in the future.

Modern Tech

The Modern Tech is the perfect option for people who want a modern-looking door at a price they can afford. As a steel door it’s very durable while maintaining the appealing look of aluminum.

You can choose from four finishes: Black Satin, Dark Bronze, Brushed Nickel and Bright White. Design choices allow you to customize the number of windows as well as their size and position with various rectangular and square window options.

The Modern Tech door is made of several materials sandwiched together, including a 24 gauge steel face and a 2-inch thick expanded polystyrene core. This makes the garage door very durable and energy efficient.

The Modern Tech also comes with various customization options, such as low clearance, high lift, or vertical lift hardware and an angle mounted track. It doesn’t matter what kind of home you have, we can make the Modern Tech door fit it.

Therma Classic 

The Therma Classic is another carriage house style door. It looks like a traditional swing door but includes modern features that make it a great option for most homes. It also has a sandwich construction with a flexible joint seal and Thermal Break to keep your garage warm. All doors have a white polyester finish, but if you’re looking for something a little different, ExCello can paint the door before installation.

With 90 design options to choose from, it’s probably the most adaptable garage door option Northwest Door offers. The door patterns are deeper than what you see on most steel garage doors, making it a noticeable option that can improve your home’s curb appeal.

With the Therma Classic you can add on options to extend the life of the door. You can also choose between single and insulated pane and insulated glass options, double end hinges and long stem rollers.

500 Series

The 500 Series is a great option that allows you to choose a style you like at an economical price. It’s an embossed door with a wood-grain texture and steel end caps, so you don’t have to sacrifice beauty to avoid maintenance issues.
The 500 Series offers the following panel types:

  • Standard raised panel
  • Traditional panel
  • Longer raised panel
  • Ranch panel
  • Short carriage style panel
  • Carriage panel
  • Long carriage style panel
  • Cottage panel

If you want a door with windows, there are 15 style options to choose from, including arched carriage, plain, diamond, cathedral, sherwood and other window shapes. You can choose between four standard colors for your door: bright white, almond, sandstone and brown. If you’d like something different, ExCello can paint your door another color before installing it.

Like the other doors, the 500 Series offers optional add-ons to extend the life of the door. If energy efficiency is a priority for you, you can also opt for an insulation package including 1 ¾ inches vinyl backed polystyrene insulation.

Which Option Should You Choose?

Every garage door that Northwest Door offers has some unique features and benefits that make it worthwhile. It’s also important to remember that these are just a few of the many residential door options available. This post doesn’t even discuss the Tri-Tech, Therma Tech, Heritage Classic, Builder Collection, Township Collection, wood panel door options, and more.

Choosing the right door really boils down to which features are most important to you:

  • Classic vs modern style
  • Customization options
  • Energy efficiency
  • Longevity and maintenance
  • Curb appeal
  • Cost

Start by prioritizing which features are most important for you then start looking at different door options with these in mind. With a little research you can pick an option that has the right visual appeal, insulation and price that you’re looking for.

One of the benefits of working with a garage door installation company like ExCello is that we will talk to you about your unique needs and help you go through all the best garage door options. That way you can make an informed decision to buy a door that you’ll love and benefit from for years to come.
