Garage doors that are made out of aluminum and glass provide a premium and modern look. You can choose from tons of different varieties of textures and designs and colors of aluminum. The glass used in the windows can be clear, tinted or obscure. If you want to have a relatively no-maintenance garage door, aluminum is the right material. However, these doors don’t offer great insulation, so they might not be suitable for areas with extreme weather conditions.
Before deciding on the material of the garage door, there are certain questions that you have to ask.
A. How long do you want your door to last?
B. What kind of stress will it endure?
C. How much annual maintenance are you willing to put into it.
If you want minimal maintenance and durability of your garage door, we recommend the steel garage doors. If you want even more life out of your door, consider the vinyl garage doors, especially if the door is going to endure harsh weather conditions. Vinyl doors are also a lot more resistant to dust, dent and are entirely rust-free.
If you’d like to have the classic wood touch for your garage door, try the fiberglass models that look just like real wood doors. If you’d prefer the real wood to the synthetic option, be aware that they require regular painting and maintenance. However, they surely add to the aesthetics of your home.
