garage door brandsThere are many different garage door manufacturers to choose from when shopping for a new door for your home or business. Each company has its own benefits in terms of style, selection, quality, and pricing. At ExCello Overhead Door Company, we work with 4 top garage door brands to ensure all our customers get a door they love at a price they want.

Here’s an overview of the door manufacturers we work with and what makes each of them a great option:


Amarr is a long-standing company that offers a great selection of residential garage doors, including Carriage House, Traditional, and Specialty options. Founded in 1951, Amarr has had many decades to build up their distribution network, meaning their doors and spare parts are readily available no matter where you may live. They work with more than 3,000 garage door dealers around the US, ExCello included.

Amarr offers 12 residential product lines for residential doors, prioritizing style and safety in their designs. Probably the most unique door design they offer is the Amarr Classica collection, which is a Carriage House door made with 3 sections (instead of the traditional 4). This makes it look more authentic than other Carriage House options.

Amarr Garage DoorsNearly all Amarr doors include their SafeGuard Pinch Protection System to reduce risk of hand and finger injuries. They also offer varying levels of energy efficiency and noise reduction through insulation, based on your needs. Amarr is also one of the door manufacturers that builds using up to 90% recycled content. Approximately 5-10% of the steel from their doors is reused at the steel mill. This makes Amarr doors a great option for environmentally-conscious families.

C.H.I. Overhead Doors

C.H.I. Overhead Doors offers a variety of residential and commercial garage doors. Their commercial products are designed to withstand daily use in tough industrial environments. Some of their commercial door options include insulated sandwich, ribbed steel, and full-view aluminum, each perfect for different types of business needs.
