Versatility and Style: Steel Garage Doors


If you’re planning to invest in a new garage door, you’ll be faced with a number of considerations. When choosing from the many different types of materials available (ranging from aluminum to wood to fiberglass), you’ll want to find a material that strikes an ideal balance between your functional needs and your aesthetic tastes.

In this feature, we’ll focus on one of our most popular types garage doors: steel garage doors. Steel garage doors are aesthetically pleasing, come in a variety of different styles and colors, and are extremely helpful if security is one of your prime concerns.

Steel garage doors are especially effective when it comes to:

  • Durability
  • Security
  • Weather Resistance
  • Cost-Effectiveness
  • Aesthetic Versatility

Durable, secure, and resistant against harsh weather conditions. During the cold winter weather and extended rainy season, garage doors in Portland and Vancouver have a lot to contend with. You’ll want a garage door that is weather-resistant and durable, and one that is strong enough to fend off burglars and break-ins. The sheer strength of steel is enough to make your garage less vulnerable to break-ins and more resistant against weather damage.

More durability makes for more cost-effectiveness. Because of their resistance to weather damage and break-ins, steel garage doors are generally less prone to unsightly damages and the need for repairs. This makes steel garage doors a cost-effective choice.

Aesthetic appeal and style. They say that you can’t judge a book by its cover, but the exterior look and design of a home is very important. And the way your garage door looks definitely plays a vital role in the aesthetic appeal of your home. Just because you want to choose a durable garage door doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice aesthetic appeal.
