in Wood


Garage is a very important part of your house and especially, your car is the most expensive thing in your house then, you should make sure that it is protected. Other than providing security, garage also gives second entrance to your house.Whether you want to protect your car or you want to protect your entrance but both of these are important.your modern garage door should possess two features which are security and style.Garages are made in front and this makes them an integral part of home exterior. Home exterior is a thing which presents your whole home and if your house is weak from exterior then, people will not bother to look inside. This can lead you to less property value in the market.

Material is first thing which you need to choose.There are lots of factors which you need to consider but weather conditions are the most important of them all because weather will impact directly on your door.Mainly there are two categories which are divided further into sub categories and these two basic categories are wood and metal. Wood is preferred material for many people because of its attractive, stylish and elegant looks. There is no alternate to wood and especially in aesthetic features; you can create a totally unique and matching door with your home exterior.This quality is not available in other materials like metal because metal has a very limited variety in textures and appearance. There is not much which you can do to make it look attractive and stylish.

Metallic doors are best suited for harsh weather conditions because they possess built in resistance against such weather conditions.You will need no extra protection for your metallic door and cost of these doors is also not very high. On the other hand, if you selected wood in harsh weather conditions then, you will need lots of extra protection to make wood work. Initial cost of wood is already high and you will also need to insulate it with a high quality material. This insulation will increase the overall cost of your door even more but wood can be selected in areas where weather remains even and does not fluctuate with time. there is no better material than wood to enhance the overall looks of your door which you should select if you can afford little extra price.

Other materials like aluminum, fiberglass and others are also reasonable materials but these materials are suitable for very specific weather conditions.These materials also have very limited variety of textures and you cannot make good looking and attractive door out of these materials. Whichever material you choose, you have to compromise on one thing which will be either reliability or looks.
