Designs and Materials: Garage Doors for Sheds

closed-door-garage-2580

If security and privacy are main concerns for you, a garage door for your shed may be the right choice. Standard shed doors don’t provide as much functionality and peace of mind that a shed garage door can. In addition, they can also enhance the aesthetic value of your property.

Materials
Small garage doors for sheds are made out metal, assimilated wood and steel. Metal materials such as aluminum are typically used since they’re durable and easy to maintain—but they’re also one of the most expensive options. Aluminum doors also may require slight upkeep, such as touching up paint over time.

It’s important to note metal doors are limited to what styles the manufacturers have patterns for so your best bet is to do some research and discover styles you like.  The most economical choice for your shed is simply steel, which is what we would recommend for a new or remodeled shed.

Functionality
A garage door is built entirely to your specifications and as a result, will meet your functionality needs. Whether your shed doubles as a workshop or living space, your new door will be a practical and highly useful addition to your shed.

One thing to consider is the type of locking mechanism. There are many kinds of locking styles available to choose from and as such, finding the right one can feel overwhelming. Sliding locks, key locks and other varieties all serve different purposes. We recommend inside locks if you have a main door since through locks can be easily broken. Another component to consider is the way the door opens and closes. Rolling garage doors are great for workshops where heavy equipment is being hauled in and out constantly.
