Weighing the Benefits of Wood and Steel Doors
One of the most important decisions you will make when selecting a new garage door will be the type of material that the manufacturer uses to fashion the panel. The majority of garage doors are made of steel or wood, with aluminum becoming a bit more popular, especially among coastal communities that deal with plenty of moisture and salt air conditions.
However, the two best materials for garage doors tend to be steel or wood, both of which offer many advantage over aluminum, PVC or fiberglass. The choice between steel and wood has more to do with your personal preference and budget rather than the benefits and drawbacks of either material.
