News From Fimbel Architectural Doors

Fall in Love with Fimbel Finishing


For nearly a century, our family has manufactured garage doors, and in that time, we have

learned a great deal about the industry through our partners, products, and passions. Today, we
are proud to include in our already environmentally friendly product a paint and faux stain
coating that will endure the elements using molecular bonded paint to stand the test of time.
Using D200 High performance finish with our proprietary system, all Factory Finished products
will be delivered with a clean finish to last! While most of our products do not require finishing
and may remain natural white, adding color to your project can add the wow-factor that we are
after! Our vast and ever-expanding color palette includes blacks, charcoals, and dark greens as
well as faux stains to truly replicate the look of wood without the maintenance. With solutions
for replacement of damaged sections to black paint in tough exposures, we are sure our
finishing options will satisfy you with beauty and durability!

So Much to Love!
The finishing program offers myriad options to satisfy the needs of your project. From solid
colors covering the entire door or perhaps used in a two-tone application as shown below, we
offer custom color matching in addition to our extensive standard offerings.

The magic of this paint system is the versatility to allow us to create our faux stain! Using a two
part process of the same paint we use to coat our doors, our team of Artisans use their trained
hands to apply first the grain design and then the top coat offering the final overall richness of
color. The result of this process allows us to increase grain depth or decrease it as needed as
well as custom color match to your desired finish.

Love in Every Door!
Fimbel doors are hand crafted and every detail perfected from our patented construction
through the processes all the way to our logistics operations, so it's no doubt we apply this
same level of quality to our finishing. You can count on an Architectural coating with a cabinet
finish unseen in other exterior applications. The detail applied to the multiple applications to
achieve this look is engineered for the strongest adhesion and cleanest finish.
We know that vinyl garage doors tend to respond adversely to the extreme temperature and
weather conditions they face. This began as an obstacle that has since turned into an
opportunity. While our VERSATEX PVC doors are crafted to remain in their natural white, we
found a solution to the projects requiring dark colors in tough exposures. Using Tricoya and our
proprietary finish system, we have not yet found a stain or a color request we couldn't satisfy!

We Love our Planet!
Our factory finish, made with D200 High performance paint, is an exterior waterborne coating
system designed for sustainability and aesthetics. It's extremely fast air dry and quick clean up
offers efficient processes for in-factory and DIY finishing. Additionally it is formulated with heat
reflective pigments to minimize heat gain for dark colors and is considered non-hazardous by
EPA standards allowing for the vast color options in our palette. Above all else, D200 exceeds
all environmental and performance standards, and the result is absolutely stunning!
