Design Like an Architect

Whether you find inspiration in nature, the neighborhood, or the newest concept, our goal is to offer solutions to bring your vision to life while offering beauty and durability you can count on. From residential to commercial and historic to contemporary, we rely on nearly a century of experience to craft a product built to last a lifetime and bring elegance to every environment. Whether you are the architect, the builder, or the homeowner, we truly believe that we have something that will make your life, your project, and therefore your bottom line, positively and profoundly better.

We know that projects from the onset have to respect the hopes and visions set forth, the environment in which the structure will cohabitate, the requirements of local codes, and the sustainability of the process and the outcome. The result must be a functional, beautiful structure that also suits the site.

Here's where we come in! We offer you more! 



More Creativity:

Using your unique design perspective, ambition, and talent, we offer you the opportunity to complete your vision with the quality and capabilities needed to truly round out your final project. Our doors allow you to capture architectural features used in original period designs or contemporary trends. For example, your windows can be nearly any configuration, any design, and nearly any location to tie features through the home to the garage door! You can accommodate any opening by customizing in 1" height and width increments or matching an uneven floor with a scribed bottom. The face of the door is fully customizable whether it's adding logos and routed designs from geometric shapes and windows to waves or anchors. you name
it!

But don't stop with the exterior, we offer interior elements to enhance every angle: interior grilles, ⅜" smooth backer, and powder-coated track sets among others! We can also factory finish the interior!

Not only can you count on our quality materials, but our nearly century long tenure in the industry gives us unmatched experience. Our team of Customer Service Representatives and Engineers will support the project with their 20+ years average experience to be sure you get what you need! Through the process you will receive a CAD drawing to hone in on the details of your design and ensure accuracy. You will see your vision come to life with the most comprehensive and sustainable doors in the market, and they will be uniquely yours. 

More Beauty:

We know the garage door is no longer simply a function of access and storage, but it has become a showpiece to many projects. At Fimbel we offer you more beauty. There is much to know about our capabilities, but you can be assured that if you can dream it, we can build it! The products offered today originated on old-world craftsmanship and classic designs, but we have added innovative technology and materials (more on a few of them below) to offer unmatched beauty and durability. You can design to your heart's delight.

We offer a wide range of finishing options from our faux stain and factory finish to two tone doors and custom color matching. We have recently published several other blog posts detailing our finishing, so if you want to learn more, please check out the value in our finishing! But our options don't end there. With Fimbel you can make selections for your door on the glass options based on the style and purpose of your space. You can also incorporate design details into the interior of the door to complement the splendor of the exterior. Adding decorative hardware is another way to enhance the sophisticated beauty of Fimbel Doors and no matter the size, we can customize most aspects of the door to accommodate. 


More Durability:

The first step in navigating our product offerings is to understand that we make our doors in two innovative ways to offer a vast variety of styles and solutions. When buying a Fimbel door, you can count on the look of real wood, durable construction methods, low-maintenance, precision fit, bold windows, reliable R-value, and more, more, more!

Our first construction platform offers carriage and traditional styles using a vinyl clad steel pan and applying vinyl overlays to create the look of a classic wood door. This door is exceptional for two main reasons – the first is the platform (pan) made of a smooth, steel base made for the elements that we coat (clad) in a thin layer of crisp, white vinyl. This innovation allows for the American Legends series to live nearly anywhere, even near the ocean, without rusting and rotting away in the elements. To this we add the smooth, solid white overlays made of sustainable material. Separating ourselves from the competition's fake wood grain completes the constructed look to appear as real, traditional wood. Both features ensure the longevity our ethics demand, the look we all crave, and a price point sure to please.

Our second construction platform truly shines in the blend between tradition and innovation. Using a hand placed wood frame and nesting in our insulation, we laminate a vinyl back cover and a solid vinyl exterior that encases the face. This slab now becomes a blank slate to bring you more for your door. Using both 3/8" and ¾" material, primarily Versatex, we have options to add select profiles and nearly limitless designs to satisfy inspiration. You will see these designs in our Euro-Dor and Presidential Collections offering both carriage, traditional, and modern styles.

To achieve a more classic carriage look, we offer the Roaring Twenties. This series starts with the same platform yet adds solid, sturdy overlays pocketed (nested) into the face. The pronounced look of this classic style can be modified in myriad ways to satisfy decorative features and historic applications. Each of these series offers incredible longevity and beauty we can all feel good about!

More on our Materials:

Our material selections are made with great care and scrutiny as we have learned how important it is to make the choice based on safety and quality. The three suppliers below have impressed us with their products, sustainability, and partnership. We are proud to showcase them for you!

Versatex is our material of choice for all of our white, unfinished doors. "VERSATEX is a free- foamed cellular PVC material that duplicates the beauty of wood, yet provides long lasting protection against rot, cracking, and decay—all without requiring any paints or sealants to protect it from the environment." We chose them as partners not only because of their unmatched quality but because of their values. 

Tricoya is our preferred material for our factory finished doors! Using this product allows us to knock out the obstacles of exposure and impact from heat. "Tricoya is a high performance MDF panel characterized by its durable and dimensional stability properties yet requiring no supplemental protection or finishing even when exposed to moisture."

AquaSurTech is by far the best coating system for our product! When combined with our proprietary processes for application, our factory finish leaves you with a cabinet-finish unmatched on exterior applications. "D200 is a high-performance single application exterior water-based coating system designed for direct application to PVC."
