3 Most Popular Wayne Dalton Garage Doors for Builders

For decades, Wayne Dalton has been recognized by builders as a top provider of quality garage doors and one of the most commonly used brands. Builder favorites include Model 9405 Carriage House Steel, Model 9100 Classic Steel and Model 9800 Designer Fiberglass garage doors. These doors include a multitude of performance features, including:

  • Pinch-resistant door panels to help push fingers out of harm's way if accidentally placed near a closing garage door

  • Wayne Dalton’s TorqueMaster® Plus Counterbalance system safely contains garage door springs inside a steel tube

  • Foamed-in-place polyurethane insulation, which can help improve a home’s thermal efficiency (especially when surrounding garage walls are insulated). Insulation also reduces street noise from the home and makes the garage door operate more quietly

  • Bottom weather seal to block draft and debris from entering the garage
