The Pros and Cons of a Steel Garage Door

If you are one of our customers that are considering a new garage door, then you likely know there are a lot of options on the market. Picking the right material is the most important part of a new door. You need to pick a material that will work well for you.

A steel garage door may be a good option for you. Here are the pros and cons of a steel garage door.

The Pros of a Steel Garage Door

Manufacturers have expanded the steel market to appeal to homeowners. In fact, steel doors are the most popular material used for garages. There is every style and color you can think of. Some of the reasons you might want to go with this material include:

  • Style- steel offers a modern look for your garage. Many of our customers want to enhance the curb appeal of their home. A steel door will make that easy.
  • Durability- this material is very durable and can last for a long time.
  • Little maintenance- you don’t have to paint steel doors the way you do ones made of wood. Also, it is not susceptible to damage from extreme temperatures.
  • Easy to clean- this material is very easy to clean off. A little soap and water will remove any dirt and grime that gets onto the surface.

A lot of our customers go with this material, because of their needs. They want something that is long lasting, easy to maintain and has the style options they want.

The Cons of a Steel Door

There are a few cons that you should take into consideration when choosing this type of door. Here are a few things to note:

garage door spring rust

  • Dents- steel can dent pretty easily and get scratched.
  • Rust- rust can occur on any metal given the right circumstances. You will need to make sure that you take care of any deep scratches.
  • Insulation- other materials make for better insulators. That doesn’t mean you can’t have insulation installed, it’s just not the best conductor for insulation. We recommend you choose the highest R-value you can find on steel doors for that reason.

These cons are a few things you’ll need to keep in mind. Many of our customers go with steel doors regardless. They like the design choices and low maintenance aspects of this material.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
