There are so many benefits of steel garage doors. Safety and security, value for money, durability and attractiveness immediately spring to mind. Key benefits to a steel garage door include the following. The list is not in a set order, because home owners have different priorities. Some will be driven by cost, others by curb appeal, and others by security. The important point to note is that this type of door will meet a variety of needs.
1. Value For Your Money
The initial cost of buying and installing a new steel door is, typically, less than that of a traditional wooden door. A steel door will last longer than one made from other synthetic or natural materials, will require less general maintenance, and will continue to look attractive. Modern galvanized steel doors will not rust or rot. The Texas weather will have less of an effect, so they will not need to be painted as frequently.
2. Safety and Security
Steel garage doors are strong. They withstand the elements far better than many other materials. A would-be thief will not find the typical weak spots that come with wooden, fiberglass or some composite doors. In addition, should you be unfortunate enough to be the victim of a fire, the steel door will not become part of the problem, and could provide a safer escape route.
3. Energy Efficiency Comes Standard
Steel garage doors can be insulated. Our particular insulated doors are available in a sandwich-type of insulation. Steel in the front, insulation in the middle and steel on the inside...it's very solid. Non insulated doors can allow a garage to become too warm in the summer, and too cold in the winter. If there is a work or living space over the garage, the occupant may have to use the furnace or the A/C to compete with the garage temperature below them. Insulated steel doors can lower your energy bills.
4. Curb Appeal
Steel door panels are easy to mold and stamp into attractive shapes. They can be installed with a window panel of almost any style. The metal panels can be finished to produce different textures. The paint colors will suit both the door’s style and texture, resulting in a beautiful door that will enhance the property’s curb appeal. While this may not seem important as far as resale value is concerned, beauty is always welcome in any neighborhood. Since the door will need less frequent painting than other sorts of door, its beauty will last. We also sell a steel door that looks like wood, all the beauty of natural wood without the maintenance, it's the perfect combination.
5. Less Maintenance
One of the worst things about garage doors is that they fail at the most inconvenient time. One of the less understood key benefits of steel garage doors is that, for all their strength, they are comparatively lightweight. The opener mechanism suffers less stress, so it perform longer with less maintenance. Beauty, security, lower energy costs and less maintenance come standard with a steel garage door.
