With so many things to consider, choosing the right garage door for your home can be a challenging task. Visual appeal, function, material and price will factor into your decision making process. When you need advice, you can count on the professionals at Garland Garage Door Repair to guide you. Selecting a design that fits in with the home's architectural style is important because the garage door makes up a large portion of the facade. An unattractive door will have a negative impact on curb appeal and decrease the overall property value.

Wood garage doors

Wood garage doors are naturally strong and allow for a high level of customization. You have many wood species to choose from and can have the door stained or painted to match the rest of the home. Wood is the easiest material to work with if you need a custom garage door built to fit an opening that is not a standard size or shape.The biggest disadvantage to owning wood garage doors is the maintenance they require to retain their appearance. Wood will deteriorate quickly in regions where the climate is humid. Sealing or painting the door will help keep it from splintering, peeling and cracking but refinishing the door must be a part of the routine maintenance if you want it to last.

Wood or steel garage doors?

If you like the look of wood but do not want to keep up with the maintenance, you can purchase a steelback door with a composite overlay. This gives you the durability of a rugged steel frame and the faux wood finish looks very similar to the real thing. Many homeowners choose 24-gauge steel doors because they can stand up to minor impacts and do not dent easily unlike the less expensive doors, which are thinner and more fragile.

Aluminum Door

Aluminum is often the material of choice for a door that stretches the length of a double car garage. The lightweight materials puts less strain on the door's operating mechanism making the movement quiet and smooth. In addition to being light, aluminum is also relatively soft and can easily dent even after a minor impact. Some manufacturers produce aluminum doors with dent resistant synthetic panels but they are expensive. Because aluminum is not as popular as other materials, the options for finishes are limited.

Insulated garage doors

Insulated garage doors will increase the home's energy efficiency and save on heating and cooling costs. Doors that provide the best insulation feature two layers of high-quality wood, steel or fiberglass separated by a thick layer of polyurethane or polystyrene insulation. An insulated door is highly recommended if the garage is used as a functional living space such as a game room or a workshop. You can choose from a variety of styles to complement your home and landscaping design. Traditional carriage house designs look like the old-fashioned doors that used to swing out, fold or slide but their operation is based on modern overhead technology. Flush panel doors offer a seamless transition between the garage and the surrounding structure while raised panel doors add depth.
