Finishes & Colors

Benchmark 2 is a paint-grade garage door that comes factory primed for your convenience. You can learn more about your finish options below.

Finish Options

  • Paint the door yourself. We recommend field application of high-quality exterior paint that is applied prior to installation on all six sides of each door section.
  • Purchase a factory paint finish in the color of your choice or choose from our in-house standard paint colors.

Any Benchmark 2 door that is primed only before leaving our factory must be field finished on all six sides before installation in order to maintain the warranty.
