Types of Materials for Overhead Doors
Garage doors tend to be made of three different types of materials: wood, steel, or aluminum. Each type of material has its benefits.
Wood doors are a popular look that homeowners are trying to achieve today when picking out a new overhead door. A solid wood door looks nice and can be painted any colour or stain; however, it requires more maintenance over the years to prevent warping due to moisture and are more expensive to manufacture. This is why faux wood steel doors are increasingly becoming more popular and add an insulation value as well.
Steel doors are the most popular option today because they are durable and require little maintenance over the years. They are stronger than wood doors and often come with a fibreglass overlay that allows them to be any colour. The fibreglass colouring may need to be repainted as it fades in the sun over time, but this is still a durable option that will stand up to the elements.
Aluminum Translucent or Glass
This is the newest style of garage door, and it consists of translucent window-like panels in an aluminum frame. They offer modern design and can be lightweight depending on the material used. Glass will add weight to the door and will require more maintenance over the years. Because the panels are translucent, they emit light from inside and greatly enhance the overall look of your home.
