Guide For Steel Garage Doors

Although a lot of home owners usually prefer wooden garage doors over other materials, this might not be the smartest and most practical choice in many situations. A wooden garage door is more expensive than a steel garage door. If you intend to get the most bang for your buck, going with a steel door for the garage is a smarter choice.

A traditional steel garage door delivers great durability and performance at an extremely affordable price. Steel garage doors come with modern long panels or typical raised panels and in wainscot inspired designs. A coat of polyester paint provides low-cost maintenance with a finish that will look great.

A majority of steel garage doors fuse the durable performance of topnotch steel with the sophistication of classic designs and clean lines. Therefore, whether you are looking to make a bold statement or a subtle one, we offer a wide array of neutral and balanced tones that will blend well with the architectural elements of your house. In the following section we will discuss the three most common types of steel garage doors.

Single Layer

These garage doors are also known as pan garage doors. They feature durable and solid exteriors that need very little maintenance. However, because of their thinness, many single–layer steel garage doors can get easily dented due to high-impact collisions. This is why they are not suitable for garages with wider openings.

The best thing about single layer steel garage doors is they are relatively lightweight, and need little physical or mechanical force to open or close. These doors also boast a sturdy surface, making them ideal for any climate. While doors made of vinyl or wood may buckle under extreme weather conditions, steel is likely to preserve its surface and shape throughout the hottest summers and coldest winters. The material can endure harsh snow storms and heavy downpours.

Double Layer

Double layer steel garage doors have one steel layer supplemented with thermal insulation (mostly made of polystyrene). These doors are more durable and quieter compared to pan garage doors and are also low–maintenance and more energy efficient.

An obvious benefit of a double–layer garage door is its improved resilience and strength. The insulation layer makes the door thicker and stronger, which makes it less susceptible to damage and dents. A double–layer steel garage door provides more insulation than a single–layer steel door, which is an important benefit for any home. In case the garage is incorporated in your home’s framework, its door will act as the biggest entry way into your house. Consequently, insulation is essential to keep the air from coming out or into your garage, as the same air can compromise the comfort and warmth of your indoor space.

Tripe Layer

These doors are made of a strong steel front and back with a thermal layer in the middle. These doors are also known as sandwich garage doors. Triple layer steel doors are the most durable and strongest garage doors available on the market. Featuring heavy–duty materials both on the inside and outside, these low–maintenance doors have eco–friendly polystyrene that can improve your home’s energy efficiency.

Even after several years of use, you may not have to seal any gaps, paint the surface, or replace the panels, because the door is unlikely to come undone easily. Triple–layer steel garage doors also provide an unrivaled thermal comfort as they effectively block the passage of cold wind and heat between the outside and inside of your home. This means more comfort and saving on your energy bills.
