Metal vs. Non-Metal Garage Doors

Last updated 6 years ago

When installing a new garage door in your house, you have many options. Metal garage doors are traditional, durable, and long-lasting. Non-metal garage doors have their own benefits, such as unique appearances and energy-saving features. Learn more about these different types of doors to decide which material is right for you.

Metal Garage Doors

Metal garage doors are typically made from steel or aluminum. Both of these metals are excellent garage door materials because they are lightweight and strong. Steel is highly resistant to denting, and aluminum has a high corrosion resistance, making it a great choice for humid areas with high precipitation. Steel can be ideal if you anticipate heavy use for your garage door and know that you want it to stand up to increased usage.

Non-Metal Garage Doors

Garage doors are also available in non-metal materials. Composite garage doors are very lightweight, resist fading from the sun, and can mimic the appearance of other materials such as wood. They can provide greater insulation than other types of garage doors, keeping  your garage cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Wood is a beautiful garage door material. It requires the most maintenance, but offers unmatched beauty. These doors can be stained or painted to suit your exacting tastes. Genuine wood garage doors make a beautiful statement for the entry of your home.
