What’s the Most Durable Garage Door Made of?

When finding appliances or equipment for our home, we want something of quality and the guarantee that it is going to last. With a garage door, we use this item every day, sometimes multiple times a day, so it’s important that it is both strong and enduring. But what type of garage doors are the most durable on the market today? You can bet that the team at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair has the answers that you are looking for.

The Need for a Durable Garage Door

Before we answer that question, let’s look at the different needs for a durable garage door. The first need for a durable garage door would be to withstand extreme temperatures and weather conditions. Depending on where you live, your garage door could face suffocating heat, bitter cold, strong winds, sleet, or hail, so it is important that it can withstand these weather conditions.

For those with small children, a durable garage door may be necessary to handle the dings of a bike or basketball. While for other homeowners, just the sense of security a strong door provides is what they are after. No matter where you live or what stage of life you are in, a durable, enduring garage door is always beneficial.

Steel Garage Doors

While it may seem obvious, typically the strongest, and one of the most popular, garage doors you can buy is made of steel. Next, to their strength, one reason for their popularity is the fact that they are reasonably priced. Put those two features together and homeowners can feel confident they have made a great decision for their home.

What to Look For

While you may have made up your mind to go with a steel garage door, there are a few items to look out for or be aware of. While steel is strong regardless of thickness, garage doors can vary. For the most sturdy garage door, look for a garage door that is at least a 24-gauge or lower (the lower the number, the thicker the steel).

In addition to thickness, steel acts as a poor insulator. While this may not seem like a big deal, having an insulated garage door can not only save energy, but it reduces the noise level as well. Make sure that the steel garage door you choose has the proper insulation for your needs.  

Style Choices

While we all want a garage door that is strong and going to last, we also want one that will look nice with our home. Fortunately, steel doors are now available in different colors, with the ability for wainscot, raised panels, and even wood-like stamping. You can customize your steel garage door to fit your personality, your home, and your budget!

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
