We can help you choose the right garage door materials to create the desired look for your home. Our Bay Area showroom has a wide range of styles and finishes in different materials. If you are looking for a custom door, our garage door designers will create any style you want.
Tips on choosing the right garage door materials:
- Paintable wood vs. stainable wood: A properly finished and maintained wooden garage door can last for years. Most wooden doors come in their natural state, so you can decide whether to
paint or stain your door. While painted doors are easier to maintain, stained garage doors offer a unique look as they highlight the natural texture of wood.
- Steel vs. aluminum vs. vinyl: A steel or aluminum garage door gives your home a modern and sophisticated look. Steel is a popular choice because it is strong and relatively low maintenance. Custom finishes can also recreate the rich look of wood. Lightweight aluminum is budget-friendly but less resilient when compared to steel. It is rust-proof, however, and that helps keep maintenance costs low. Vinyl is more expensive than steel but a cost-effective option as it doesn’t need to be painted.
- Metal vs.wood: This choice is really a matter of personal preference. While a steel garage door will last longer, our high quality wood garage doors also provide many years of service and visual appeal.
- Insulated vs. non-insulated: An insulated garage door is energy-efficient and allows cost savings on your utility bills. It will significantly reduce the transfer of heat and help maintain equitable temperatures in your home. If you use your garage as a recreational space, an insulated door is a better choice than a non-insulated one.
