When it comes to the design of your home, you already have an idea in mind of what you want it to look like. There isn’t really anything we can say to sway you on that decision, and we don’t want to! We want to help you make your dream home a reality. When you’re going through the process of choosing and selecting your garage door, one thing you may want to consider is how the material of your garage door will do in the environment and climate where you live.
Wood for dry climates
As you may have guessed, some wooden doors don’t hold up well under the desert weather we have here in Utah. Wooden garage doors can give your home an elegant look, and if you had your heart set on wood, don’t worry! We have a solution. While it may be true that redwood is a material best utilized in humid climates (like the northwestern coast, and Texas), Cedar is a durable wood that will stand up well in the dry heat of Utah. When choosing wood, you’ll have to maintain it with a finish, to protect it.
Steel garage doors
One of the most popular types of garage doors, are steel garage doors. This is due to their versatile look and low price point. The good news with steel garage doors is that they work well in ANY climate. When in doubt, go with steel!
Vinyl garage doors
Vinyl garage doors are perfect for beach homes, and other coastal communities. The vinyl is durable, with a maintenance free finish that will be protected from sand, wind, and other elements. And it’s perfect for Utah, as well! It will uphold to weather incredibly well, and won’t need maintenance frequently. These are a great cost effective garage door choice for your home. It’s also a great alternative to wood.
