With many models and designs on the market to choose from, choosing a new residential garage door may not be an easy task. Garage doors for your home are available as a swing-up or a sectional roll-up. In the last decade sectional doors have become the #1 choice for consumers who are looking for a quality garage door, while remaining economical.
Overhead doors come in many different materials; wood, steel, metal composite , aluminum and fiberglass. Although wooden doors have a lot of appeal, they are not as durable as some other materials and require periodic painting. Today’s composite doors have the look and feel of real wood, minus the maintenance headaches. Aluminum doors have the advantage of being lightweight and inexpensive. Steel doors come in various gauges of steel and offer insulation. They can also be coated with a baked-on primer for maximum rust protection. Fiberglass doors are not great choices for colder climates as they offer little in the way of insulation and can easily dent or crack due to the cold weather making the door brittle.
