Did you find the door of your garage squealing and clacking or you almost cannot release it because it's rather old? Or possibly you're simply tired of your persistently slipping door? In all these cases time has come to replace your old garage door with a new model that can be operated and serviced with a wet finger. It is a good chance not only to get better protection of your garage, but also enhance its functionality by means of a modern garage door; additionally the new door improves the general view of your garage and home. Different materials are used to construct garage doors. You can choose between aluminium garage doors, iron garage doors, steel garage doors, wooden and fiberglass garage doors depending on the amount of cash you have. There are strengths and weaknesses of each stuff, still, people mostly prefer to install steel garage doors.

To start with, steel garage doors are better and more reliable than the doors made of aluminium, wood or fiberglass. The current technology of metal embossing allows a steel garage door seem to be as good as a wooden one and the same time be several times better. Steel garage doors do not deform, crack, flake or break up owing to severe climate conditions as they are usually made of durable galvanized steel. Second, you do not have to renovate steel garage doors as often as you do, for example, with wooden doors. Finally, steel garage doors do not crumble by reason of galvanization technology.

The highest class steel garage doors include the interior element made of foam plastic or polyutherane providing the door such properties as temperature filling and weightlessness. The garage will be kept cozy in winter time and cool in summer season by means of this kind if filling. Such materials also decrease the overall weight of the door, so it is easier to control it. Thickness of the steel plate affects greatly the quality of the door. Thick steel is generally used to produce top-quality insulated doors.

There are 2 kinds of steel garage doors: single-skin and double skin. Using the second kind is more preferable as it has foam insulation in the form of a sandwich, both inside and outside. One more parameter ensuring door quality is weatherstripping. It means a full-width vinyl sealing along the lower edge fitting tight to the floor. Concerning the overall appearance of the doors, they may imitate wooden doors. The steel garage door prices vary from $700 to $1300 for an average door, and you will have to give more if you want a premium-quality garage door.
