Wooden Garage Doors
Wooden garage doors are easily the most beautiful type of garage door. They can make your garage look more like an extensive of your home than just the space you park your car and store your junk. But while improved curb appeal may be the main reason why people choose wood over steel or aluminium, they come with a whole host of other functional benefits. They’re sturdier than traditional metal garage doors, can increase the value of your home, are easy to customise, easy to use,and provide natural insulation to keep your garage comfortable year-round.
The Benefits of Wooden Garage Doors
Knowing the unique benefits of each garage door material – steel, aluminium, and wood – will help you to decide which is best for your home. Below are some of the greatest benefits that come with installing a wooden garage door.
With so many types of wood and different patterns to choose from, there’s no shortage of possibilities for what your wooden garage door can look like. Mahogany, cedar, pine, oak – there’s a type to match any home’s aesthetic. If your home has other natural elements, such as stone or wooden shutters, a wood garage door would be a perfect fit.
Easy to Customise
Wood is much more versatile than metal, allowing the colour, size, and pattern of your wooden garage door to be easily customised to match your home’s unique style. While metal garage doors only come in so many sizes and one limiting rectangular shape, wooden doors can be crafted to any shape and size. A dark stained finish, a chevron pattern,an arched top with glazing – it’s completely up to you!
Increases Your Home’s Value
When it comes to people, it’s what’s on the inside that counts, but when it comes to homes, the outside is just as, and in some cases even more important than the interior. You’ll be the envy of the block with whatever stunning design you choose, but did you know that your wooden garage door can also increase the overall value of your home?Improving your home’s curb appeal is the easiest and most effective way to maximise your return on investment.
Easy to Use
You might think that because wooden garage doors look so gorgeous, there’s got to be a catch, like being difficult to maintain. Yes, they do require a bit of routine upkeep every few years, but if you choose to install with Prestige Doors, we offer a 24/7 maintenance package to prevent rot and keep your garage door in perfect condition.
If an aluminium garage door is trapped by the rear end of a car or struck too hard by a kid’s basketball, it’s going to get a ding in it, which can look like a blemish on your home and can be tough to get out. But a missed three-pointer won’t dent a wooden garage door – thick and sturdy, they’re built to withstand anything, even harsh weather. The wood is specially treated to resist water, so rain and snow won’t be a problem so long as it’s retreated every few years. The protective coating also ensures that the wood won’t expand, shrink, or warp over time.
Wood is a natural insulator, meaning it keeps your garage cool in the summer months and warm in the winter without having to mess with the thermostat too much, saving you money on your energy bills. If you like to work in the garage, you’ll be able to do so year-round.
Installing Your Wooden Garage Door
If you decide that a wooden garage door is right for you and choose Prestige Doors to install it, we’ll first check to see if a new frame is required. We would never try to put a garage door into a frame that doesn’t fit or isn’t strong enough – it would be like trying to jam a puzzle piece into the wrong spot. An ill-fitting garage door can lead to expensive property damage down the road.
Once your wooden garage door is installed, we offer a 24/7 maintenance guarantee so that you don’t have to worry about any of the extra upkeep that wood requires – just give us a call and we’ll take care of it.
