You finally have a home with a nice garage, now you want it to look great too. You need a new door that matches your property but it should also suit your needs - it needs to be sturdy and built to last. Read on for a list of materials to learn more about the pros and cons when considering which one is likely to be right for you.
The Natural Look: Wood
If you are looking for an authentic, original and stylish look, wood may be the material for your door. However, it can come with a price tag and is also prone to decay and rotting if exposed unprotected to the elements for too long. To keep it in great shape, it may need more maintenance attention than some of the other options available to you.
Light And Affordable: Aluminum
If you prefer a simpler and more affordable option, aluminum - this option tends to be cheaper and it's also a really light material which usually requires little in the way of regular maintenance. The one thing to be aware of is the risk of denting, this material can be a bit more susceptible so just take extra care when driving your car in and out of the drive.
Fiberglass And Vinyl
If you're after a strong door that similarly does not need a lot of maintenance, a fiberglass or vinyl layer could be for you. Typically these come with a steel core with all the strength you need, then a fiberglass or vinyl layer is added to the surface. The great thing is, these options allow you to create other looks in a simple way - for example, you could give your door a 'natural' 'wood' look without opting for wood itself.
Those were three options. Did not find what you were looking for? Don't worry! There are always other options to suit your personal needs. Contact us if you want more information on either these or other options.
