Las Vegas, Nevada – April 30, 2008: Visitors to the International Door Association Expo 2008 who were expecting to see the same products year in, year out were pleasantly surprised by Ackue's new faux wood product offerings including an industry first–faux bamboo garage door.
"We researched the garage door market and see a big opportunity in tapping into the green building and curb appeal architectural trends by offering something substantially different than current product offerings. An example is the Fatezzi faux bamboo door which is an "outside the box" design that is different than the traditional garage door product offerings," said George Acha, Managing Director of Ackue International.
Front-facing garage doors take up a large portion of what people see from the street and using plain vanilla garage doors can have a negative impact on a home's curb appeal. Although garage doors offered through the years have come a long way since the plain vanilla varieties, affordable products until now have not caught up with the gold standard of garage doors for curb appeal, which is real wood garage doors. The Fatezzi faux wood claddings are lightweight, yet strong and durable and avoid the maintenance problems inherent in real wood garage doors making them ideal in climates that wreak havoc on natural wood doors.
Carl Galloni, a 25 years veteran in the garage door business and owner of Galloni's Triad Door Services, Jamestown, NC said "it's good to see new innovative products for the door industry. It's very refreshing that Ackue is listening to the market. We definitely like wood but don't like the maintenance aspects of wood. Fatezzi claddings look and feel just like wood and finding your products at the IDA Expo makes my trip worthwhile."
