With the housing market in the state it is at this time, many homeowners are opting to remodel for upgraded improvements rather than buy new. Does one of your remodel projects include a garage door replacement or repair? If your home was built around the 70’s or earlier, you may have a Frantz Garage Door. Since Frantz Manufacturing no longer makes garage doors, where will you find what you need?
The Frantz Manufacturing Company, started in 1909 by Peter Frantz, entered the garage door industry back in 1939 and manufactured conveyor wheels as a part of its garage door operations. In 1947, the Sterling Steel Ball Plant was started, establishing itself as the standard in manufacturing of ball bearings, steel wheels, and carriers. In 1994, Wayne-Dalton purchased the Frantz Building Products Division for its garage door productions, making Frantz a division of Wayne-Dalton.
If you are looking for parts for your Frantz-built garage door, you may be able to purchase what you need through the company located in Sterling, Illinois. The website is http://www.frantz-mfg.com/index.html. But if you are looking to replace the door with a similar model, you will need to contact Wayne-Dalton at 1-888-827-3667 for service. Wayne-Dalton can help you with any problems or needs you may have in repairing or replacing your Frantz garage door.
