Ovation OV-25 Plus - "Shadow line" design that is similar to a raised panel style. 25 gauge steel, three color options, and insulation options are available. 10 year warranty.
Prestige PR-24 Plus - Colonial style, similar to Ovation model. 24 gauge steel, three color options, with insulation options available. Lifetime warranty.
Custom Wood Doors - Delden manufactures five basic styles of wooden garage doors. They can be ordered with a stain grade surface or primed and ready for paint. Cedar is the standard species of wood, but almost any species of wood can be ordered.
Most of their wooden models have a styrene-insulated subpanel which adds to the strength of the door. They also make conventional stile and rail design wooden garage doors, and custom sizes are available for non-standard door openings.
Delden uses a single glass panel for their windows, with three different designs of removable inserts (except the Classica, which has eight different options available). The removable inserts make it easy to clean the windows, and you can even change the look of the door by installing a different style insert. However, the single panel means that a break requires replacing the whole piece of glass instead of just one pane.
