Why Steel Garage Doors Won the Popularity Contest

Choosing a garage door isn’t like buying a new pair of shoes. You can’t try some on and see how they fit or take them back if you decide you don’t like the style. It’s a big decision, because it’s one you’ll live with for years to come. One of the choices you’ll have to make when picking your new garage door is what material you want. Obviously you want your garage door to match your house nicely, but you should also take into consideration what type of maintenance and upkeep you’re looking at. Here are some pros and cons about the maintenance and durability of STEEL GARAGE DOORS to help you with your decision-making:

The Upside

Steel garage doors are typically budget friendly. A high market demand has made them an extremely wallet-friendly option for many homeowners.

Clopay has a wide range of design and price options to match your house and budget.

You can pick how insulated you want your garage doors to be. Clopay offers multi-layer insulation for even greater durability, dent-resistance, and energy efficiency.

Steel garage doors are so durable that many manufacturers include longer warranties with them because they don’t anticipate malfunctions happening anytime soon.

The Downside

Steel garage doors are prone to rust if not properly cared for and maintained.

The next time a big hailstorm rolls through, you may see some of the effects on your steel garage door. You’ll find that they dent easily.

Despite a couple cons, steel garage doors still reign as the most popular type of door installed because of how long they last.
