Steel Vs. Wooden Garage Doors

by:Gladman      2020-09-02

When you go out to find the right garage door for your home, you'll find that you'll be inundate with the amount of choice there is. Wood, steel, fiberglass, aluminum, copper, iron---there is a whole host of materials for you to choose from. And once you know what material you want, you need to consider what kind of door you would like-an overhead garage door, a sectional one, a roller garage door, carriage door...the list can go on. And once you've got that out of the way, you'll still need to decide on the accessories and windows!

Over the years, the garage door industry has boomed because people have realized that the front of the house is the first impression of the house and adds greatly to both the curb appeal and to the value of the house.

The first question, when it comes to choosing a garage door is however, the material. Among the number of choices out there, the most common choices are wood and steel. Following are the factors that you would need to consider when choosing between the two.

Price-Wooden garage doors can be comparatively more expensive than steel. Wood, as a material, especially if you consider teak or oak, can turn out to be quite pricy. On the other hand, steel doors are quite reasonable.

Aesthetic value-There can be no doubt about the fact that wood gives a traditional and classic look to any house. The expanse of a double garage door in wood gives the house a warm appeal that cold, hard steel cannot manage to do.

Maintenance-so that a garage door functions smoothly, it is important for you to get it serviced once every few months, whatever the material. Garage Door Repair Pearland will come and carry out the service for you for as little as 100 dollars. However, when it comes to the aesthetic look of the door, steel is much easier to maintain than wood. As the door is at the mercy of the elements all the time, wood warps extremely easily and even the paintwork begins to look quite tired. The door will have to be painted for it to constantly look good. Steel, on the other hand, doesn't require as much painting. However, if you have young children who are fond of playing ball games, dents can be an issue if you go for a low grade steel.

Both wood and steel have their advantages and disadvantages and while these are mere guidelines it is individual needs that will finally decide which of the two is better for you. Garage Door Pearland can help you decide what better suits your needs.
