Pros & Cons of Garage Door Materials
Which garage door material is better wood or metal? Honestly, both material types have their own pros and cons. Wood garage doors bring a certain class to the look and feel of your home as well as warmth. However, the home does need extra care. Especially here in the Nevada desert wood dries out quickly and needs a fresh coat of sealer every few years. Functionally, wood garage door perform equally as well as metal doors. Metals such as aluminum or steel are lower in maintenance and are more durable in the extreme heat and cold that we can get here in Nevada. If your concern is about price, it all varies with size and material. Often metal doors are cheaper, but not by much.
Garage Door Insulation
Do you want an insulated or non-insulated door? Most will ask you if you want to have your garage door insulated or not. This depends on what you use your garage for. If you’re the kind of person who spends a lot of time in the garage for different hobbies then yes, you will want to insulate your garage door. If you store items in the garage that are sensitive to temperature then yes, you will want to get an insulated door. For those who don’t spend a lot of time in your garage or store delicate and sensitive items, then an insulated door isn’t required. Most garage door technicians still prefer the benefits of an insulated garage door and will highly recommend them. If you choose to insulate your garage door you will have two chooses of insulation material: polystyrene or polyurethane, for best performance you will hear your garage door technician recommending the use of polyurethane.
Garage Door Maintenance
What is the typical lifespan of a garage door and its systems? Installing a garage door system is an investment. Most of us, when paying our monthly bills, wonder how long does a garage system last. There are various components to a garage door’s operating system. Each component will wear out over the course of time and simple replacement of individual components will be needed. Most garage doors will work without failure for at least 10 years and even longer than that if you maintain your garage door with proper inspection and maintenance, such lubrication and the cleaning of your garage door components.
