If it’s time to upgrade or replace your old garage door, you may want to consider a steel garage door. Your garage door gets a lot of use, often being opened and closes several times a day.
It also gets bumped, banged, used as a backdrop for basketball or hockey practice, and sees its share of bumper mishaps. A steel garage door can withstand a lot.
Not only does your garage door get a lot of wear and tear, but it’s also a big part of how your home looks.
It is actually quite affordable. Because you can have your steel garage door look like almost anything, you get the door you really want at a fraction of the price for the actual material it is representing.
Comparing steel garage doors to other materials, like wood or fiberglass, the steel door will outlast them all. With proper care, your door can take whatever you throw at it and still stand strong for many years, if not your lifetime.
When it comes to style or design, you have plenty of options. If you want your garage door to look like wood or vinyl, you can get that. You also have choices when it comes to the strength of the door.
You can get single, double, or triple-layer doors, with or without insulation. The double and triple-layered steel doors come with insulation for better durability, safety, energy efficiency, and noise reduction.
Every time your garage door opens, the hot or cool air gets in or out. A garage door with insulation will allow your garage and your home to retain the heat or cool air much better.
This is important if you use the garage for a workspace, if your garage connects directly to your home, you have a bedroom or other living space directly above it, or just want to stop wasting energy.
Requires very little maintenance. It’s another reason why they are so popular. Once or twice a year, have it checked out for any issues there may be, like broken parts or rust, and clean it off after a big storm.
Otherwise, it gets installed and it does what it is supposed to do. Protect your home, your family, and your belongings. You can get it inspected once a year to make sure everything is where it should be.
Many steel garage doors today are made from recycled steel from other places and when it comes time to replace it, your old steel door can be recycled. Steel is one of the more sustainable materials available.
A solid, insulated steel garage door will help keep out the noises from your neighborhood or the noises you are making inside your garage. Whether it’s your neighbor who mows his lawn at 6 am or your teenager with his drum kit, you can count on your steel garage door to help keep that under control.
You can get them rather ornate, if you choose, have windows, and get them custom-made to suit your style and personality. If you are looking to replace your garage door, consider a steel garage door.
