Should I Choose a Steel Door or a Wood Door?

Whether you choose a steel or a wooden garage door can depend on a couple of factors. A steel garage door generally requires less maintenance. It arrives pre-painted with a durable factory coating. Steel doors benefit from a periodic washing with warm water and a household cleaner, but need little more to look good. A wood garage door can add unique character to a home. It will, however, need to be primed and painted or stained. The finish should be inspected regularly for signs that a touch up may be necessary. With regular maintenance, either door should function well and look good for years.
