Replacing a Residential Garage Door? 4 Materials to Consider, Rochester, New York

Garage doors not only protect your cars and other belongings from the elements, but they add style and beauty to your home as well. Take a look at your residential garage door. If it looks damaged, cracked, or old, it’s time to consider a replacement. There are plenty of materials and styles to choose from, and the garage repair experts at Tracey Door Co in Rochester, NY, are here to help you find the best option for your home and lifestyle.

Here are four different residential garage door materials to consider: 

  • Steel: This material is the most popular option for garage doors. Steel doors are affordable, low maintenance, durable, and come in a variety of styles. This material can be painted to mimic other textures, like wood, too. There are two potential drawbacks to using steel for your new residential garage door. Because steel doors aren’t very thick, they are more vulnerable to damage and their insulation isn’t as good as other options. However, they do insulate better than wood. 
  • garage door repairWood: This material is great for homeowners who want a traditional, classic residential garage door. There are many different styles, and some offer windows and unique designs. Wood doors do come with insulation, but they need more maintenance. If you choose this option, it may increase the curb appeal of your home, but be prepared to spend more time cleaning and refinishing.
  • Fiberglass: The main advantage of fiberglass is its durability. These residential garage doors are less likely to dent, and there is no need to worry about rust. At Tracey Door Co, the company sells pre-finished fiberglass doors in a variety of colors; however, if you’re interested in a unique color, you can purchase an unfinished door and match it to your exact needs. residential garage door
  • Aluminum Full View: Customers with a contemporary-style home will love Tracy Door Co’s full-view garage doors, which are powder-coated in a specific color and feature frosted glass window panels. Aluminum is much lighter, and, obviously, you will have to worry about damage to the glass. If your kids play basketball in the driveway or like to kick around a soccer ball, this material may not be a good option.
