A few of the paint manufacturers we can match are Ace, Behr, Benjamin Moore, Olympic, Sherwin Williams, True Value, and Valspar.

Picking Your Color

With TruChoice™, your residential garage door or commercial door possibilities are almost limitless. Homeowners desire a garage door that fits their unique needs that not only enhances the value and curb appeal of their home but one that can become a focal point of the neighborhood. While business owners, on the other hand, stand out from the competition by bringing the company’s color palette to their building. Effectively turning their commercial doors into additional branding assets.

Visit your local Wayne Dalton Dealer for actual color samples to match with your home or business. Online color swatches are only digital reproductions of actual standards and will vary in appearance due to differences in monitor and video card output. These digital representations should not be used to finalize color selection(s).
