In 1921, the upward-acting garage door was invented by Overhead Door Corporation under the leadership of C.G. Johnson. Today, we continue to be a leading name in the industry for innovative, reliable, and strong garage door products. Throughout the years, we’ve seen new technologies, materials, and systems for residential garage doors but one thing remains true – there’s something to be said about a wooden garage door that is timeless and exudes a classic, sophisticated feel.
At Overhead Door Company of Lethbridge, Calgary & Cranbrook, our residential garage door wood collection is one of the strongest, most durable materials you can find. Look for The Overhead Door™ brand’s signature Red Ribbon to make sure you’re getting the genuine, original Overhead Door™ products.
