Having trouble choosing the right garage door for your home or renovation project?

There are many options to consider when selecting a new door for your garage, with one of the biggest choices being which material to use.

We’ve put together some information about the various types of garage doors available to homeowners, to help you feel confident in choosing the best one for your house.

Aluminium Garage Doors – Strong, Quiet and Secure

They also offer a high level of security and protection for your home, with many aluminium garage doors being stronger than steel, ensuring greater resistance against attempts at forced entry or in the event of extreme weather.

In terms of aesthetics, aluminium frames are very versatile as they’re able to be powder-coated or treated with a wood-like finish to give the appearance of the ever-popular cedar.

Timber Garage Doors – Warm, Natural Luxury

Speaking of western red cedar, you could go for the real thing and choose timber garage doors. The warm, natural hues of timber can add an authentic or rustic charm to your home, increasing its street appeal from the front.

Wooden doors, when sealed, are great for weather-proofing and offer strong, secure protection for your valuables.

Western red cedar is a very popular choice for timber doors. Look for high quality, beautiful timber that has been sealed and stained by a professional. Timber doors may be more expensive than other options, but can be a great investment for the value of your home.

Steel Garage Doors – Affordable and Attractive

Another option for the material of your garage doors is steel.

Galvanised steel doors have traditionally been a popular choice for Aussie homes due to their affordability and tendency to be low maintenance. With steel, you can select from a huge range of attractive colour options and finishes, making them a good custom option.
