In Garage Door Installation

Modern garage doors are durable, and provide great design and breadth, enhancing style and flexibility to perfectly fit modern homes. Statistics indicate that the average life of a garage door is somewhere between 15 to 30 years. However, treating your garage door well and using it sparingly will prolong its life, to over 50 years. Neglecting and treating your garage door carelessly shortens its life to under 10 years, whether a home or commercial garage door. We recommend good care as part of enhancing the longevity of the garage door.


Types of Material used in a Modern Garage Door

There are different materials used to design each garage door. You thus have a variety of options to choose from. For entryways, garage doors can be made of steel, aluminum, wood, wood composites, fiberglass, vinyl. For real or faux, wood tends to be more popular. The materials are also suitable for house doors and are available in different sizes and shapes. The prices differ from one material to the next with the key factor being durability.


Steel garage doors as one of the options give a good deal when made of two layers of galvanized steel and the surface primed and painted with a tough topcoat finish or clad with a composite material. 


Wood garage doors, on the other hand, are built with layers, or plies, to prevent warping. The design is made of such woods as cedar, redwood, fir, and meranti. Wood composite garage doors basically have a wood frame coated with fiberboard sheets.


Higher-density fiberboard skins can also be used for design, and these have such realistic details as overlays and grooves simulate a real wood door. Cores are filled with polystyrene insulation.


An aluminum frame garage door is always fitted with aluminum raised panels to curb rust but is easy to dent. Translucent glass panels can be used in place of the aluminum panels to create a contemporary look. These allow daylight without interfering with the privacy and security of your carriage house.

Fiber Glass

Fiberglass garage doors are made from fiberglass and are less prone to denting or cracking. They do not rust but can break upon impact.


The vinyl garage door is famous for being ‘kid-proof,’ as it is difficult to dent or break. It is basically built on steel frames, and full of polyurethane insulation. Vinyl door and steel door are similar in styles, but it is available in fewer colors.

Taking the DIY garage door, for example, historical repairs have mostly come from torsion springs, which act unpredictably and aggressively when strained or broken.
