Overwhelmed by the many choices available for garage doors? You’re not alone.

Whether you’re building a house, renovating your home, or simply upgrading to a new garage door, you’ll be faced with many options to consider when it comes to garage doors. These range from material and style to colour and finish, just naming a few.

The finish of your garage doors is particularly important for the overall look of your home, especially if your garage is at the front of your house, as many Australian garages are. You’ll want your new doors to beautifully complement your home’s existing aesthetic while still making a unique statement of their own.

Let’s look at some of the various finishes available to homeowners, renovators and builders, to help you get started on finding the perfect garage door for your home.

The Versatility of Aluminium Finishes for Garage Doors

Aluminium garage doors are always a popular choice for builders and renovators, as they are very versatile and allow you to really customise your end product with a finish to suit you.

Aluminium frames are able to be powder-coated or even treated with a wood-like finish like Timberlook for an affordable alternative to timber. This will really put the final look in your hands as you work with a professional garage door company to design your product.

Genuine Wood for a Luxurious Finish

If you’ve got the budget to go for the real thing, timber garage doors can also be manufactured in a variety of custom finishes.

Common woods used for timber garage doors include cedar, redwood, oak and mahogany. Western red cedar is a very popular timber choice for Aussie homes, being strong and durable with an attractive finish that really adds to the overall street appeal of a residence.

Affordable and Strong Colorbond Steel Finish

Another finish available is the ever-popular steel range from Colorbond. Colorbond products are well known for their strength and ability to withstand the harshest of Australian climates and weather conditions.

What you may not know is how versatile the Colorbond range can be – they have oven-baked finishes available in approximately 22 different colours, allowing you to match your doors perfectly to your home.
