Do you know what kind of garage door will suite your needs? When the time comes to replace your garage door, it’s essential to pick the right material for your home or business. Giel Garage Doors, offers several styles, and construction that is right for your home (i.e. steel and aluminum, or wood, sectional, rolling, etc.). All these materials and styles have important pros and cons that you should consider when investing in a new garage door.

  • Expense
    • If you are concerned with price, a metal door is the most economical choice. Even basic wooden garage doors cost more than the traditional wooden doors. Wood also requires extra maintenance (i.e., extra expense) that you won’t find with metal doors.
  • Durability
    • While both of these materials can be susceptible to the elements and deterioration over time. You’ll need to keep up with staining a wood garage door over time, metal doors on the other hand are susceptible to rust.
  • Insulation
    • If your garage is connected to your home, insulated doors can cut down the heating and cooling expenses. Wood panels don’t insulate rooms very well, but if your garage is not attached you shouldn’t be concerned with insulating your garage.
  • Style
    • Attractive garage doors won’t only increase the visual appeal of your house, but can also boost your property’s resale value. If your home has a rustic look with wooden siding, wooden garage doors can give you the boost you need.
