Why Your Garage Door Material Is Important

Choosing the right garage door material is important for more reasons besides the aesthetic.

You can find garage doors in a number of different materials like wood, steel, fiberglass, and aluminum. Each option has it’s pros and cons, especially when it comes to your budget and climate. With Affina Door Company, we can give you valuable insight into which type of garage door material is right for your home. 

Wood

Wood garage doors are a great option if you’re interested in a more unique or rustic look. While beautiful, it’s also one of the pricier options and requires maintenance and upkeep in order to preserve the look. These types of garage doors are best for mild climates since severe temperature changes, rain, and humidity can warp or rot the wood. 

Steel

Steel garage doors are one of the most popular choices on the market. These doors are light-weight and durable, and one of the cheaper options available. You can find them in a number of design styles and work well in all climates. However the bottom of the door can rust over time and it’s not a good insulator. 

Fiberglass

Fiberglass garage doors are perfect if you want the look of a wooden door without the hassle of cost and upkeep. These types of doors won’t warp or rot like wood, so they’re a great option for warmer, humid climates, except for those with high winds.

Aluminum

Aluminum garage doors are very light-weight and fit best with more contemporary and modern homes when paired with glass. They work well in any climate, but aluminum isn’t the most durable option and can dent easily. It’s also low-maintenance but severe damage will require a specialist to fix it.
