The best material for a garage door depends on the type of door, the location of the garage and the budget. Doors made of aluminium and steel provide good durability and a wide range of design options.
Wood and wood composite garage doors are beautiful and stand well to wear but require frequent finishing and maintenance. Fiber glass and plastic have arisen as alternatives to wood doors. However, these doors react adversely to weather conditions and tend to break down or fade over time. Steel and aluminum garage doors, on the other hand, are available in a variety of designs and colors, and are ideal even for those with limited budgets. These metals take well to painting techniques that mimic wood, providing the same carved, textured appearance while being more durable and versatile.
