If you’re a Wayne Dalton dealer, it’s likely that one of your best customers is a local homebuilder. But if you don’t have a homebuilder in your customer database, you’re potentially missing out on a great source of revenue, especially considering that Wayne Dalton garage doors are built to be the garage door of choice for the home building industry.
Since our founding in 1954, Wayne Dalton has become known as a company that doesn’t just meet standards, but sets them for the entire industry. For example, Wayne Dalton invented pinch-resistant door panels, which help prevent homeowners from accidentally getting fingers caught between the sections of a closing door. Wayne Dalton also invented the TorqueMaster® Plus, a system that safely and cleanly contains garage door counterbalance springs inside a steel tube and results in faster installs because the springs are wound with a drill.
In the last year alone, Wayne Dalton introduced a new carriage house-style Model 6600 steel garage door, a new bi-directional wood grain finish on the Model 8300 Sonoma panel design, as well as the addition of the Sonoma panel design to the Model 8700 Specialty Vinyl line and the Classic Steel 8000, 8100 and 8200 models. These new additions increased an already extensive selection of residential doors – available in wood, classic steel, aluminum, fiberglass and vinyl – that will complement virtually any architectural style a builder takes on.
Here’s something else to keep in mind: our constant innovation and new product introductions are recognized year-after-year throughout the industry. For example, last year we were proud to have won first place in the Best Residential Doors category of Professional Door Dealer’s 2013 Best of Business poll. This came on the heels of winning a Silver Innovation Award in the garage door category from Home Builder Executive magazine in 2012.
These awards mean that as Wayne Dalton develops innovative products, the building industry takes notice! It’s also why many of our dealers tell us that from the smaller production home builder to the custom builder, Wayne Dalton is their choice for garage doors. The builders in your area should be making that choice too.
