Things to Consider When Choosing a New Garage Door

The garage door is one of the most significant components of your garage. It can make a major impact on the style and beauty of the exterior of your home. From the material of the garage door, to the style and size, there are many decisions that come along garage doors.

Material

Garage doors are typically made of wood, fiber glass, steel, or aluminum. Wood garage doors allow for multiple designs, paints, and varieties. Although wood garage doors provide a timeless feel, they are also the most expensive and need continuous refinishing and upkeep. Fiber glass is quickly being a popular option due to its resistance to moisture and warping. There are many techniques that can make fiberglass look like real wood by imitating grain patterns and colors. Steel garage doors are the most economically smart option with relatively low maintenance. A downside to steel is that they cannot be repaired when dented. Aluminum is the least popular choice but can be made into any specific color. They can be powder-coated in several different colors.

Style
