Raynor Garage Doors
Kooler chooses the Raynor Garage Door for a reason. Raynor Garage Doors are quality doors that are American-made out of Dixon, IL. While Kooler brings in other manufacturers on occasion, the price point and quality of Raynor doors are hard to beat.
The Aspen Door is our most popular selling residential door for Gunnison County and Grand Junction, CO. It bolsters an r-18 Insulation Value in the AP200 Model and has a tight panel-to-panel seal to prevent wind flow, along with a true thermal break. We use this or a commercial insulated model most often for our custom overlay doors.
It’s your vision. Let’s bring it to life.
Your custom garage door should be special and designed for your home. We can customize to your specific design specifications by placing your initials, utilizing unique wood finishes, and customizing window sizing for a truly unique garage door look.

Scaled Sketch Drawings
In our selling process, we now offer scaled sketches of all custom doors. This ensures we get the design correct at the forefront, and it ensures our pricing is as tight as we can get it for each door.

New Garage Door FAQs
Got a question about purchasing new garage doors? We’re here to help.
What do I look for in a new garage door?
Garage doors primarily come in two different utility styles—what we mean by this is you can have insulated garage doors with both the inside and the outside having a metal skin—a sandwich steel door—or you can have a non-insulated door with the inside open—a steelpan door.
Steelpan doors can have an insulated backer and we often refer to these garage doors as the “economic workhorse”. Typically the steelpan doors are lower in price point with less focus on quiet operations. They can be louder and yet very effective for storage sheds or detached garages where warmth is not important.
Sandwich steel doors run very quietly and, generally, these doors are specified with nylon ball bearing rollers, which helps make sure the operations are even quieter.
For homes where the garage is attached, insulated sandwich steel garage doors are the way to go. Insulated doors can gain an r18 and even an r26 insulative rating.
Both of these door models can then be dressed up with multiple exterior design options, colors, prints, hardware, windows, and more.
You really want to visit a design center to explore the aesthetic design options—and first decide on the utility design. Do you want warmth and insulation that runs quietly? Or the economic workhorse?
How long does it take to get my garage door once I order?
There have been many variables in the supply chain of all products and industries, and the garage door indsutry has not been missed.
With that said, our main garage door manufacturer is Raynor Garage Doors – a U.S.-based manufacturer with factories in Illinois.
Depending on the model, color, and design, we are seeing lead times from 3-12 weeks. It’s quite the spread!
What we don’t know is the actual lead time, and we don’t know this until we order the door(s).
Oftentimes, colors, such as charcoal or auburn, can run a little slower than others. And it really does change week by week.
The best thing to do is to get an order together before you think you need to close up openings or replace a door. It appears that the supply chain is improving, though we don’t really know what to expect just yet.
And occasionally we have doors in stock that may meet design qualifications which would shorten the lead times significantly!
What do I need to do to prepare for my new door?
If you are replacing an existing garage door—all we need from you at the time of our installation is a clean garage.
We need personal items, vehicles, and shelves to be removed and out of the way from the sides, middle, and front of the garage. This way we can access the door systems fully and have the freedom to move longer pieces and our ladders.
If this is for new construction, the above still remains. We need space and items cleared from the garage. In addition, we need to have solid anchor points which we refer to as “goal posts”. This includes a full piece of wood (1×4 or 1×6 boards) running the full length of the door on both sides and up to the ceiling with a full board coming across.
What does Kooler do that others do not for new garage doors?
We are so grateful to all the customers that entrust us with their garage doors.
We celebrate with you. It’s a big deal to get a new door and opening system and it’s exciting.
On the door itself we will always have a heavy-duty rubber bottom seal—the standard seals that come with most doors don’t cut it when we have melting snow and the potential to freeze the door to the ground. Doors that freeze shut are strained when opened, and this increases wear and tear.
Our heavy-duty EPDM Rubber comes standard for this reason.
We also come back after 6-12 months to perform a courtesy inspection of the door and all systems to make sure anything that may have settled is in complete alignment.
And finally, you’re in the club. We take care of you for the long term.
What does a new door cost?
This is the golden question, and honestly, it is really difficult to say.
There are so many options and styles available that can meet specific needs for a home and homeowner that it’s not worth quoting any pricing without knowing all the details and context.
We can “ballpark” doors coming in around $1,500-$5,000 for single-car garage doors—and that truly is a wide range that does not capture every option.
Our focus at Kooler is to work closely with homeowners to determine their true needs and desires – and then put together the ideal package of looks and systems to attain those goals.
What are my customization options?
Garage Door Customization options are just about unlimited.
From our manufacturer direct we can explore custom paint colors, multiple window options and locations, and decorative hardware.
And from the Kooler Garage Doors shop we can build anything you can imagine.
Our design center is built specifically to explore the options. We have a few custom overlay and manufacturer options hanging so you can look and feel at just a few ideas to get the creative juices flowing. Then we can design with you.
Place fastener-less metal overlays with tight contemporary seams together or go full barn wood reclaimed lumber and have the classic vintage look of the mountain west.
The sky is the limit when it comes to customization and this happens to be a passion and specialty of Kooler’s.
