Benefits of Steel:

The maintenance free exterior and durable construction of steel garage doors have made them the choice of most builders and home owners today.  Steel can be finished in woodgrain paint to retain the classic appearance of a wood garage door, although a variety of other colors are also available.  Additionally, steel can be layered and formed in various degrees of thickness, depending upon the desired insulation factor.

Benefits of Wood:

Wood was the choice of most manufacturers prior to the introduction of steel garage doors, and it is still used frequently in the popular carriage house style doors.  Our Wood Expressions line of garage doors can be completely customized to give your home a unique look.  However, it is important to note that wood requires more maintenance and typically has a lower insulation factor than steel doors.
