If you’re currently building or renovating a house, you’ll probably need to spend some time considering the right garage door for your home.

While it may not sound like such an important decision to make, the right garage door can make a huge difference to the overall appearance of your property. With their prominent position right at the front of many Australian homes, the humble garage door actually becomes quite an important aesthetic feature.

A great-looking garage door can have an immediate impact on your home’s street appeal, which in turn will affect its market value. And as the largest entrance point to your home, you’ll also want to make sure you invest in a product that’s secure and reliable, protecting your car, contents and family.

We’ve put together some information to help you choose the right garage door, making sure you select a door that complements the look and feel of your home while also keeping you safe and secure.

Warm, Natural Timber or Sleek, Modern Aluminium?

The first thing you’ll probably consider is the kind of appearance you want from your new garage doors – do you want to bring a quaint, natural look to your property with warm timber garage doors, or project a sleek, contemporary exterior?

If you like the idea of a wooden finish for your garage, you might like to consider western red cedar – a very popular choice for timber doors. Look for high-quality beautiful timber that has been sealed and stained by a professional.

Choose Your Colour Option and Unique Finish

If you are leaning towards aluminium, you have a variety of finishes to choose from – aluminium frames are very versatile as they’re able to be powder-coated in a myriad of colour choices.

In fact, aluminium doors can even be treated with a wood-like finish. As genuine timber doors are generally more expensive than aluminium, products such as ‘ Timberlook’ can be a great affordable option that doesn’t blow your budget.

Colorbond garage doors are also available in a very wide range of colours that allow your custom-made doors truly complement your home.

Keep Your Home Safe with a Secure Garage Door

For peace of mind, you’ll want a strong and reliable residential garage door. Both timber and aluminium garage doors are very strong, offering a high level of security and protection for your home against attempts at forced entry or in the event of extreme weather.

If you’re particularly interested in the security aspect of your residential garage doors, your best bet is to talk to the experts at a professional garage door company.
