At A Plus Garage Doors, we help Utahns install new garage doors on their homes and businesses in a variety of ways and styles. One type of garage door that is rising in popularity is aluminum doors, which are effective as a light, durable material that homeowners and businesses can use to create an aesthetically pleasing, yet highly functional garage door.

Types of Aluminum Garage Doors

What makes aluminum such an interesting material for garage doors is that there are two types of ways that it is primarily used in the industry, which means that you can bend it for a variety of styles. Here are the two major types of aluminum garage doors:

  • Standard: Standard aluminum doors are very similar to steel garage doors, and are typically just a change of material that makes for a lighter door that is more resistant to weather changes. Likewise, aluminum doors are usually injected with extra insulation.
  • Glass: Another common way that aluminum is used, often in conjunction with luxury homes, is by essentially creating a slotted aluminum frame that is filled in with reinforced windows. These types of garage doors are actually mostly glass, but function because of the aluminum frame.
