Steel Garage Doors
Steel Garage Doors

Steel is one of the most traditional garage door materials. To manufacture, first, large rolls of steel travel through machines that emboss a wood grain onto the door. The small bends created by the initial pass add strength and durability to the structure of the door. Next, a raised panel or carriage house design is stamped onto the steel. However, the manufacturing process of stamping limits the design choices of those looking for a standout door. Steel doors can be painted a variety of colors or painted with a wood stain-like finish.

Steel is a low maintenance material aside from routine inspection. It’s durable in that it is fade-resistant. However, it is susceptible to dents, especially when it is not insulated, so you’ll need to consider that when shopping for a new garage door. Steel garage doors are the only material available in 1, 2, and 3 layer construction and are the least expensive garage door material.
