Prelude 2

Vinyl Garage Door

Prelude 2, our affordable vinyl garage door, simulates the look of traditional, carriage house-style garage doors, but it’s actually made from easy-to-maintain cellular vinyl. That means it’s naturally moisture-, weather-, insect-, and rot-resistant for an extended lifespan.

Standard Vinyl
  • Can be left unfinished or painted in light colors with a light reflectance value (LRV) higher than 60.
  • Vinyl gets very hot and retains heat with sun exposure, which can create problems for darker paint colors.

Finishes & Colors

Prelude 2 is an unfinished, white cellular PVC door and doesn’t need to be painted. Our Tricoya® composite upgrade comes primed, but we recommend factory-finishing it. You can learn more about your finish options below.

Finish Options

  • Leave the door unfinished.
