The Pros of a Wood Garage Door

There are many reasons that our customers choose wood for their new garage doors. Here are some of the top benefits of this type of material:

  • Very strong- a garage door made from wood is able to be hit without denting like a steel door. It is very strong and can withstand some damage.
  • It’s a green option- a wood door is environmentally friendly. Some companies make their wood doors from recycled content.
  • Customizable- there are many options you can choose from when designing your wood door. You can go with a range of colors and panel designs.
  • Long lasting- this is a material that will last for years to come. Many of our customers like the durability of this type of garage door.

Overall, customers love the look of wood garage doors. It could make a great option for your home.

The Cons of Wood Garage Doors

If you are seriously looking at installing a wood garage door, there are some things to take note of. These may be deal breakers for you. The cons of this type of material include:

  • The cost- wood usually costs more than other materials like steel and vinyl. This is pretty much true anytime you are buying a higher quality product.
  • Maintenance– unfortunately, maintenance is a drawback for this type of door. It will need to be re-finished on occasion. Also, the bolts tend to come loose during regular operations.
  • Insulation problems- wood is not the best insulator, which is the case for other materials like steel. The problem is that it doesn’t have the ability to be insulated like other options.
  • Swelling and warping- like any wood door, this material is susceptible to swelling and warping when there is a lot of moisture in the air. This can cause a lot of problems with the functioning of the door. If you live in an area where there is often standing water near your house, a wooden door may not be the best option for you.

These are concerns that you’ll have to take into account when deciding if you want to choose this type of door.

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.
