Panel Design

This is one of the most basic yet important choices you will need to make as it sets the tone for the entire garage door. There are numerous panel designs offered:

  • The raised panel design has been an industry standard for years both in short panel and long panel designs.
  • The recessed panel design offers numerous panel options. This model from C.H.I. offers greater flexibility in design than nearly any other garage door product on the market. This door also lends itself to a carriage house configuration. There are numerous design options available and each offers maintenance and worry-free steel exterior.
  • The impact-resistant fiberglass garage door allows us to create a highly defined look that is impossible to create with steel doors.

Window Style

Another way to add curb appeal to your home is through the addition of windows to your garage door. This option helps to brighten your garage by allowing natural light to enter. Glass is available in a variety of designs including

  • Standard
  • Designer
  • Obscure
  • Glue chip
  • Seated

Any of these varieties can be incorporated into your door as glass alone, or with the option of inserts and overlays. The inserts in our doors can be interchanged at any time allowing your garage door to have a new look in minutes. Various window designs are available in either single pane and non-insulated windows or double panel insulation for greater weather protection.


Your garage door can have a significant impact on the energy efficiency of your garage, as well as your home if the garage is attached. It is important to take into consideration the type of environment you want to maintain in your garage and choose the right door accordingly. There are several things to consider while buying an insulated garage door. The best option for people looking for a well-insulated garage door is a sandwich door. A sandwich door is simply a door that has an interior and exterior steel skin with insulation laminated or pressure bonded in between. In addition to enhancing the insulating ability of your garage door, sandwich door construction provides a clean finished appearance, increased structural integrity, and an extra barrier against outside noise. C.H.I. offers garage doors with both polystyrene and polyurethane insulation. Polystyrene is a stable product that provides significant insulating value but is not the best option in the market. Polyurethane is the premier insulating option available in the market with a higher R-value and can be essential in increasing the energy efficiency of your home. A well-insulated home can provide you with significant energy savings and as the biggest opening in your home, garage doors are a large part of it.

C.H.I. uses only the highest quality polyurethanes available and works directly with DOW – the leading manufacturer of polyurethanes. The CHI and DOW developed a formula specifically for C.H.I. doors to ensure the most effective thermal performance. So, by selecting a polyurethane insulated door you’ll realize lower energy costs, a high return on investment, as well as superior strength and durability on your door.

If you expect extreme door usage, DUSTIN JOHNSON EXTERIORS & ROOFING can also install your garage door with heavy-duty hardware. This ensures a long and low maintenance life for your garage door.
