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? Several of their models are elegant and charming and are available with a finish, the color American Walnut, which gives the appearance of woodgrain.

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

Similarly, the North Hatley carriage-house style available on the Standard+, Acadia and Triforce doors recalls the allure and classical elegance of swing doors seen in the 50’s.
