Project of the Month Winner – Kitsap Garage Door
Kitsap Garage Door is a family-owned and operated garage door installation and repair company in Bremerton, WA. They have been in business since 1975 and cover Clallam, Kitsap, Mason, Jefferson, and West Pierce Counties. For this blog post we interviewed Doug Womack, Sales Professional for Kitsap Garage Door. Doug entered into the garage door industry when he was attending college and has worked with Kitsap for 29 years. He used to work summers for a small independent company in Eastern Washington and the garage door industry just stuck with him! Kitsap Garage Door does approximately 90% residential and 10% commercial projects. The most popular Northwest Door products they sell are our Modern Classic and Heritage Classic doors. They pride themselves on customer satisfaction: “If our customer isn’t happy, then we’re not happy. We will do whatever it takes to make sure that they are happy.”

For this project Kitsap Garage Door worked with the builders from High Country LLC out of Tacoma, WA and the architects at BCRA of Tacoma, WA as well. The garage door installation incorporated a 16’Wx7’H Dark Bronze Modern Classic with Insulated Satin Etch glass and used a LiftMaster 8550W opener. The 43”Wx71”H custom gate was made with the same aluminum and glass as the Modern Classic and used a LiftMaster Magnetic Gate Lock. Doug said, “This house just screams Modern Classic! It was just a logical door to go with on it. [And] the gate was just a nice little touch that went well with the project.” Our Modern Classic doors are continuing to gain popularity as new homes being built tend to follow the contemporary style and aesthetics. With our high quality craftsmanship and heavy duty construction, dealers and homeowners continue to choose our doors over the competition.
Doug said one of the best aspects of working in the garage door industry is “the variety of work that we do. We’re on a custom home one day, it could be a 5 million dollar house, and then on a commercial job the next.” Variety keeps everything fresh for him and it “never gets old.” Kitsap Garage Door has a project coming up with an “oddball oversized” Heritage Classic door as well as a standard Heritage Classic. We can’t wait to see those pictures!
