When purchasing a garage door, you have three options: steel, vinyl/fiberglass composite, and wood. There are a variety of considerations to take into account in order to decide which type will work best for you. You need a door that will fit the aesthetic of your home, as well as provide you with appropriate durability and meet your specific needs in terms of maintenance and convenience.
- Wood doors. These provide a custom, timeless, rustic look to your home. Wood doors tend to take a little more maintenance, as they need to be painted about as often as the wood trim around your house.
- Composite doors. Vinyl and fiberglass are notable for their durable quality – they won’t crack or dent, even under forceful impact. These tend to be lighter, so they’re ideal for those who don’t have a garage door opener and must open their door by hand.
- Steel doors. These create a sleek, professional look for a home or business. Steel doors can be insulated, which will go a long way toward keeping your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. They usually come with a longer warranty. They’re also low maintenance – unlike wood doors, they never need to be painted. Steel is the strongest of the materials, so just one door will last a long, long time.
