Metal Garage Doors

Garage doors give you easy access to the interior of your building. Placed on the front of a garage, storage facility or warehouse, garage doors easily lift to allow for the storage or removal of the contents of the building. A typical garage door rolls up and back into the top of the building to preserve space, but some prefer a set of double doors that open outward for fast and easy access. They may be electronic or manual.

A metal garage door has many of the same similarities to a traditional garage door, but offers several additional benefits. Not only do they offer a trendy and modern style to put the finishing touches on a garage, but they also are created from durable and long-lasting materials.

When considering a metal door, you’ll have a variety of possibilities to consider. Be sure to carefully consider items that you currently have stored in the garage, as well as items you wish to store in the future. Once a garage door is installed, it is much more difficult to change the dimensions. As a result, if you plan on storing larger items in the future, you’ll want to plan this ahead of time.

Benefits

Besides being reasonably priced and highly specialized, there are a number of benefits to choosing a metal door for your garage. This includes their aesthetic and functional qualities, along with their long-lasting structure.

Visually Appealing

Due to their metal composition, metal garage doors appear with a smooth and sleek finish. They can be paired with a metal building for a seamless transition, or paired with other building materials such as brick or wood to stand out. In addition to their smooth look, a number of customizable styles adds to the aesthetic qualities of metal garage doors. They most frequently appear in a clean white color. However, they can be made the same color to match the rest of the building or a contrasting color to stand out.

Functionality

Metal garage doors also have many functional qualities that add to their popularity. A metal garage door has the ability to keep unwanted moisture and pests outdoors where they belong. As long as they are sealed properly, metal garage doors offer a durable barrier against the outside. Their seamless composition keeps water and moisture outside, without concerns of leaking or sealing through the cracks. They also offer a tough barrier against rodents like mice and rats. Due to their metal build, small rodents are unable to chew through the barrier. This keeps your stored items safe and sound at any time of the year.

Durability

Metal is one of the toughest materials used in construction. Using it for garage doors is no different. Metal allows a garage door to withstand the toughest weather, including rain, wind, snow and ice. Metal garage doors are built to last. For the average metal garage door, you can expect it to last you up to 20 years or more. During this time, you won't need to paint them or worry about rust. They're easy to clean and don't rot like other materials such as wood. This saves you time and money as you won't have to worry about costly repairs.

Styles

There are many different style options for metal garage doors depending on your needs. This includes options for insulation, size, colors and windows.

Insulation

Metal garage doors are available with or without insulation. Insulated garage doors are built to keep your stored materials cooler during the summer and warmer during the winter.

Although the price of insulation drives up the cost of the garage door, it can also save you money in the long run. If you have a heated or cooled garage, choosing an insulated garage door is a smart way to keep heating and cooling costs lower. Additionally, if you have items in your garage that are sensitive to the heat or cold, insulation can help save you the price of replacement or repair.

Windows

Classic metal garage doors have no windows and do not allow light to enter the facility. Adding windows to the door can not only allow light, but also add style to the building. Metal garage doors can be personalized with multiple windows depending on your desires and needs.
