How To Choose The Right Garage Door

Unfortunately there’s a lot more to choosing the perfect new garage door for your home than simply selecting the right colour or pattern. These days, you are given a large variety of garage door types to choose from, such as:

  • Steel Garage Doors

The steel garage door is an extremely popular choice among home-owners across the UK for generations – and understandably so! They are one of the strongest garage doors, and are built to withstand even the toughest of weather. Plus, these type of doors can be painted or clad with a composite material of your choice to match your homes décor so you can add that extra oomph in the curb appeal rankings.

  • Wooden Garage Doors

Again, wooden garage doors are very popular among home-owners because of their tough and reliable qualities in adding a touch of natural charm and elegance to your home. At Doormatic, we can provide various typed of wood, such as fir, redwood, cedar and much more. The great thing about wooden doors is that they can be stained and painted any colour your heart desires.

  • Aluminium Frame Garage Doors

Aluminium frame garage doors are ideal for homes that are acceptable to rust. They come in a wide range of modern colours and finishes, with some models using glass panels, instead of aluminium, to allow natural sunlight into your garage. Just to put your security worries at bay, the glass panels will not affect the level of security or privacy.

  • Fibreglass Garage Doors

Fibreglass garage doors are very popular amongst home-owners with children or in a neighbourhood with children playing in the streets; this is mainly because these doors are made to withstand cracks and dents. Additionally, the fibreglass garage doors are rust-free, and fully fortified with steel end caps.

  • Vinyl Garage Doors

The vinyl garage doors again are another popular type amongst home-owners with children or in a neighbourhood with children due to their dent resistance and durable qualities. For parents with their hands full or for those with a busy lifestyle, the vinyl garage door is a perfect choice if you’re looking for a door that’s durable and virtually maintenance free. They look very similar to the fibreglass doors, and come in a wide range of colours to suit every preference.
