The overlay face and trim boards are made with cellular vinyl which is a popular wood-replacement product. Cellular vinyl has most of the good qualities of real wood but none of wood’s maintenance requirements. While it does cost more than wood, this product will not splinter, twist or warp. It is highly durable, resistant to insects, salt and impervious to moisture, which makes it a great choice for sea-side installations.
Panel options include:
- Beaded tongue and groove panels.
- Flat vinyl panels.
- Raised vinyl panels,
Trim board options include:
- Cross Buck (X-Buck)
- Z-Buck (A-Buck)
- Cross rails
The Symphony door is coated at the factory with our Easy-Care paint finish to seal and protect the exterior while producing a smooth, white luster that’s both durable and beautiful. Our special heat-reflective Designer White paint has a medium gloss finish.
Paint Finish Options:
- Factory-applied EasyCare Designer White paint finish (Included in base price)
- Custom EasyCare paint color
Factory-applied custom colors are formulated with heat-reflective paint that is designed specifically for vinyl. We can color match any color sample you provide from any manufacturer, providing that the color’s LRV is 60 or greater.
Symphony custom paint colors and field paint colors must have an LRV (Light Reflectance Value) of greater than or equal to 60 (light colors) in order to maintain our warranty. Darker colors absorb more heat from the sun that leads to fading, as well as excessive expansion and contraction at joints and seams. Due to the extreme conditions created by dark colors, any paint color with an LRV less than 60 will void our manufacturer’s warranty.

Our Symphony door is made from quality materials that have been manufactured to withstand many years of exposure to the sun, weather, and water while needing minimal maintenance and up-keep.
We recommend an annual inspection to ensure your paint finish continues to provide an uninterrupted and sealed coating to prevent the intrusion of moisture.
