Made almost entirely out of recycled wood fibers, these carriage house doors have the look, feel and strength of hand-crafted wood, but at a fraction of the price.

That's only one advantage of EcoBuilt doors. The resin, wax and wood composite material offers better weather resistance than its wooden predecessor. The doors resist splitting, warping and cracking.

Manufacturer Overhead Door Corporation markets these doors as being environmentally friendly without sacrificing style.

Douglas fir shavings, the industrial byproduct of milling dimensional lumber, are bonded with exterior grade resin and wax to form the core of the door. Interior and exterior surfaces are formed from resin impregnated recycled newsprint, eliminating the need for priming before painting.

With a multitude of panel styles, graining designs, window style, glass and hardware options, the doors offer a custom look at a stock price.

Shown here is the Presidio door in the Verde collection, aimed at homeowners who want a period look. The doors are also available in a more contemporary raised panel style.
