Everything You Need to Know About Metal Garage Doors

Updating your garage door can be an excellent way to improve the curb appeal of your home while maintaining the overall utility. Metal garage doors can offer significant benefits over some other material choices, like wood and fiberglass, making them strong options for buyers looking for longevity and lower maintenance requirements. Based on the popularity of metal garage doors, you can often find them in a broad range of styles, including, but not limited to:

  • Traditional
  • Contemporary/Modern
  • Rustic
  • Industrial

The wide selection makes it easy to find an option that suits your design preferences. In some cases, you can even find metal garage doors that are embossed to resemble wood grain, allowing you to obtain the look while lessening the amount of upkeep.

Material Choices

Generally, metal garage doors are either steel or aluminum. Steel garage doors are the most widely purchased, which makes them highly accessible on the retail level. They also tend to be fairly affordable and are one of the easiest to maintain. Steel is incredibly durable and can support either a painted finish or a baked-on finish that protects the surface, helping to keep rust at bay, and generally doesn’t require repainting.

Aluminum doors aren’t as heavy as their steel brethren, but aluminum metal garage doors can be more easily dented or bent, especially after an impact. Aluminum doesn’t rust, but it can corrode, so it also needs to be protected by paint or clear coat to maintain its integrity.

Single, Double, or Triple Layer

In many cases, metal garage doors will be single, double or triple layer. Single layer metal garage doors are less expensive than double-skin variants since less material is involved. Generally, they are stamped using a sheet of galvanized steel and don’t feature insulation. Double layer steel garage doors have a sheet of steel and a layer of insulation, making it easier to control the temperature of your garage while simultaneously upping the level of soundproofing.

Triple layer metal garage doors, also referred to as double-skin, feature two steel sides with a layer of insulation in the center. This improves the aesthetics of the interior of the door, as the insulation isn’t visible, and increases the overall strength. Double-skin doors are the most expensive, but are also stronger than the other variants and may provide more protection from the elements.

Available Style Elements

Metal garage doors can include a variety of stylistic elements, allowing you to choose an option that complements your home. Contemporary versions may feature flush panels, helping it to blend in with an overall minimalist aesthetic, while traditional version will include raised on inset panels associated with classic architectural design periods. Rustic versions may be reminiscent of carriage doors or barn doors, making them ideal for farmhouses or similar homes.

Metal garage doors can also include windows in a range of sizes, shapes, and locations, allowing light to enter the interior and create visual interest from the exterior. Which elements you choose to include should be based on your design preferences and the style of your home, as garage doors are a prominent feature and will certainly be noticed by guests and passersby alike.
