INDUSTRYNEWS Overhead Door ™ Brand Featured on Season Three of HGTV's "Desert Flippers" HGTV power couple Eric and Lindsey Bennett enlisted the Overhead Door ™ brand for the third season of Desert Flippers, giving Palm Springs real estate an exciting makeover. Through its Overhead Door™ distributor, Overhead Door Company of the Desert™, contemporary doors and garage door openers were installed on two projects, helping to transform not only the aesthetic of the homes, but the entire neighborhood as well. "This is the modern finish that this house needed. To put something so high-end on a home like this — it really brings it up a notch," said Desert Flippers host Lindsey Bennett about the crisp lines and sleek design of Overhead Door™ Aluminum 521 garage door, which perfectly complemented a home's metamorphosis from pigsty to posh pad. Another Desert Flippers project received a Thermacore ® garage door, one of the Overhead Door™ brand's most durable and attractive offerings. These doors deliver thermal efficiency in both cold and hot climates, making it a good match for the triple-digit desert temperatures of Palm Springs.

Late founder Jack Dourney began manufacturing garage doors in 1958 to supply his garage installation business. Since that time, the name Arm-R-Lite has become synonymous with welded glass garage doors. In 1991, Mr. Dourney retired from Arm-R-Lite and his wife Wilma Dourney was appointed as CEO. To this day, Mrs. Dourney continues to lead the company as CEO with daughters Shannon McGrady as president and Dr. Sharon McGrady as secretary/treasurer of the Company. Under the leadership of these women, Arm-R-Lite is a proud Women- Owned Business Enterprise (WBE). Since Mr. Dourney's humble beginnings in 1958, Arm-R-Lite has continued to provide groundbreaking products to the market such as an ADA Compliant Pass-Through Door, 1" insulated glass units into our door frames, awning windows, sloped bottom sections and other custom options. Arm-R-Lite has manufactured aluminum and glass garage doors consistently since 1958 and can provide replacement sections for any Arm-R-Lite aluminum door regardless of purchase date. Arm-R-Lite would like to extend gratitude for the 60 years of continued support to all customers, vendors and other garage door partners.
