There are a number of variables to choose from. What style do you want to choose? Preferably one that matches your existing house. A commercial organization would need a design that matched their “corporate” image. There are a range of different materials to choose from. Steel, galvanized steel, requires less maintenance than wood, but can rust and can dent easily. A fiberglass overlay can prevent rusting. Aluminum is a lightweight metal that is durable. Laminated aluminum panels reduce denting.
Wide Array of Materials and designs
Please note laminated aluminum panels can be more expensive. This is a good material for double garage doors. Wooden garage doors, especially those using hardwoods, would look impressive but these might not be cheap. An alternative would be wood composites, such as plywood. These are lighter, cheaper and possibly customized more easily. Maintenance is essential with any wooden garage door. Given the variability of the weather, wood will rot in time. Fiberglass is very versatile and malleable. If the climate is cold, fiberglass will start to break in time and turn a yellow color. Vinyl is very tough and durable and kids will have a hard job denting it. The only downside is that the color range is more limited. There is even a glass door option, for those with a designer garage door in mind, probably matching an existing house.
For those that are thinking about the resale value of their property, then matching the style and design with the rest of the house would be important. You may want a straightforward traditional hinged panel door, an “up and over” garage door installation, or a modern panel door. There are a number of different patterns and designs that can be added to any style of garage door. Your house may be detached and fairly traditional in design. You could be in a suburban street where most places look the same. You may have a minimalist house design. We will be happy to guide you.
