April Wilkerson chooses Wayne Dalton’s Classic Steel Model 8300 with the all-window door option for maximum visibility when working in her stylish shop
March 25, 2019 – Texas-based blogger and DIYer April Wilkerson got her start in 2013 when she purchased her first power tool and set out to hand-make the stylish furniture she wanted for her home but could not afford. Fast forward six years, April is a staple in the DIY building community with more than a million followers who actively track her projects and the products she recommends. Recently, April chose Wayne Dalton’s first-ever Classic Steel Model 8300 garage doors with the all-window door option to complete the 3,000 square-foot barn-style workshop she was building in the backyard of her new home in the scenic Texas Hill Country near San Antonio, a big move from Fort Worth and the 600 square-foot workshop she outgrew.
“As someone who has built a reputation on producing high-quality works of art for her home through skilled labor, April is no stranger to working with heavy machinery. As recommended by our team, April allowed us to step in and provide her with exceptional professional service to install her new garage doors,” said Wayne Dalton Senior Brand Manager Sarah Schram. “Utilizing garage doors in place of a traditional wall has many benefits. April has access to ample amounts of light while in her workshop, which is especially important when filming, the doors are wide enough to move large projects in and out of the space with ease and on a good day a breeze can be let in for maximum comfort.”
Installed by Wayne Dalton dealer Hollywood-Crawford Door Co., the residential Model 8300 garage doors with the all-window door option boast the look of an Aluminum Full-View garage door with many of the same benefits of insulated steel. Amongst Wayne Dalton’s best-insulated doors, Model 8300 is durably made with two layers of steel surrounding a thick layer of foamed-in-place polyurethane insulation.
