Garage door is one of the most noticeable elements

Homeowners need a door that looks as good as it performs. The garage door is one of the most noticeable elements when it comes to a home's curb appeal. Selecting a design that matches the landscaping and surrounding architecture is crucial for preserving property value. Some of the most popular designs include flush panel, raised panel and carriage house style doors. Our experts can help you select a door that matches your home and fits your budget.

Wood, steel and aluminum

We carry a wide variety of doors made of wood, steel and aluminum. When selecting a door you need to consider the size of the opening as well as the home's architectural style. Wood is the most expensive option but it is also more versatile and often the most visually appealing. In addition to costing more, wood requires a great deal of maintenance to maintain its appearance. Wood does not stand up to the elements as well as other types of material. Cracking, peeling, splintering and fading will become a problem if you fail to paint, stain or seal the surface regularly.

Lightweight aluminum garage doors installation Hurst

Lightweight aluminum doors offer a sleek look that goes well with contemporary home designs. They often have multiple windows to allow natural light into the garage. The door opening system and its components are under less strain and last longer because of the lightweight construction. This can also be a disadvantage because aluminum dents easily.

Most experts recommend 24-guage steel doors

If you have children that play in the garage or on the driveway, steel is a more durable option because it will stand up better to minor impacts by errant balls and bicycles. Most experts recommend 24-guage steel doors because it resists denting but is not too heavy for a standard opener to open and close without strain. Steel is also an attractive option because it requires less maintenance than wood. A steel-backed door with composite panels that look like real wood offers homeowners the best of both worlds.

Multiple-layer steel door

A multiple-layer steel door with insulation is the best choice for a garage that is used as a playroom or workshop. Polyurethane or polystyrene insulation layers improve energy efficiency and make it easier to control the inside temperature.

Security and durability

Security and durability are more important than appearance for most commercial garage doors. Options include 16-, 20- and 24-gauge steel, with 16-guage steel being the thickest and most durable but also the heaviest.
