Modern steel garage doors are loved for their durability and practicality. Unlike many wood doors, these options can withstand the extremes of Oregon winters and summers, which explains their growing popularity among Pacific Northwest homeowners. This is a material that is durable, dent-resistant, and secure for homes. In addition, steel blends with various home styles and designs, making it a universally appealing material for your next garage door.
Modern Steel Garage Doors Can Look Like Wood
Steel is surprisingly lightweight. Instead of a clunky metal door, you’re getting an incredibly efficient, soundproof, and customizable solution for your home. Another great aspect of a steel door is combining it with composite overlays. This layers the door with a different material like wood or stone to change the texture and look of the door. Steel has a sharp design sensibility for residential homes. Powder-coated in the color of your choice, steel can brilliantly highlight the design features of the home you love most.
While composites can require more upkeep, stamped steel is another great option to emulate wood texture while avoiding its susceptibility to weather and water damage. The CHI 2327 Accent Woodtone is a great example of this, with accent choices that realistically resemble mahogany, cedar, walnut, and dark oak.
Steel Is Cost-Effective and Easy To Insulate
This is an easy choice for homeowners because it is affordable. Steel is a readily available garage door material in any style. Some of our most popular options are the Wayne Dalton 9700 Insulated Steel Carriage House Garage Door and the CHI 2717 Sterling.
Insulation is also a big factor here in Central Oregon. Cold winters and hot summers mean heat loss and retention in your home is a big deal. For a better insulated home, the garage door has a role to play. Many of our manufactured garage doors come with polyurethane insulation with R-values ranging from 10 to 17+.
Modern Steel Garage Doors Are Highly Durable
For industrial applications, it’s common to see steel. And what’s more, steel is very durable. Instead of being pliable to dents or dings like an aluminum door or becoming brittle like a fiberglass door, steel is a sure bet to handle the hard knocks of life. Sometimes, accidents happen. The car door flies open in the wind, bicycles and soccer balls bounce against the door, and before you know it, you have a dent. But you won’t have to worry about any of that with a steel door. Metal is made for wear and tear. Some of our doors come with 24 gauge galvanized steel and 2” inch-thick 2-sided sections, making them built to stand the test of time.
