Strong yet light, aluminum is a great material to be made as a garage door. It adds a contemporary twist to your curb appeal. This material does not crack nor fade and it also offers good insulation. This material is budget friendly too. But as we know it, aluminum is easily dented so it is not a good choice if your garage is prone to bumps and activity.
Vinyl is another material that is good for a garage door. It will not dent, rust, peel or crack. Some manufacturers offer a warranty too and vinyl garage doors last for many years which makes it an excellent option for low to middle range houses. Vinyl garage doors will require washing on occasion.
Garage doors made of wood are the usual choice of some people. This is because of the natural beauty it creates which is very good in complimenting the style of the house. This type of material requires more maintenance though.
If you want high security then a garage door made of steel is the choice. Steel is strong and it does not crack nor does it decay but one disadvantage is the rust and it can also be dented.
