A metal or wood garage door – which to choose?

Are you leaning toward buying a wood garage door because of its look and warmth that it brings to your home’s exterior? It is certainly a good choice. Even so, did you know that you can get the same result with a metal door from Garaga?

We are knowledgeable of all types of doors, whether they’re in wood or metal. Just like metal garage doors, there are various levels of quality found in wood garage doors on the market, from the most economic to the top of the line with custom carvings on the door. In any case, to keep its beautiful finish, a wood garage door requires regular maintenance from its owner.

But before you go any further, ask yourself if it’s a country, traditional or even modern style you are looking for or, is it the natural aspect and type of wood.

The Garaga alternative

Did you know that Garaga has metal garage doors that give the appearance of wood doors? Many of these models are available with a finish that gives the appearance of wood grain, including Chocolate Walnut, American Walnut, Dark Walnut, Cherry and also Iron Ore Walnut with its shades of gray.

For example, the decorative PVC overlays on Princeton and Eastman doors, from the Townships Collection, blend traditional charm with the latest trends. These same overlays on Cambridge doors, also from the same collection, recreate a classical heritage style.
