Kent Forsland started out as a door dealer in Minnesota installing "regular" garage doors. He was replacing doors from more than 100 years ago and was so impressed with the quality, he bought one to study. His study door was an old barn door that had taken 100 years of the upper Midwest's extreme weather and was still sturdy. He took it apart and studied the construction that made it so durable. He and his team then figured out, not only how to replicate that old world quality of construction, but how to modify it so that it could be built as a sectional overhead door.
