Since garage doors are classified according to materials and designs, their repair techniques vary accordingly. Therefore, be it for a commercial or a residential garage door repair, our professionals cannot start their work unless they critically analyze the garage door’s material and detect the mechanisms of the garage door by going through the design. Therefore, listed below are the different materials that garage door are available in and their required maintenance –
- Wood composite –It provides the visual appeal of authentic wood at half the price. It’s ‘lightweight’ quality prevents it from exerting excess pressure on the track as well as the springs. It doesn’t rot and is mold resistant too. However, apart from these good qualities, wood composite has a few harmful qualities also. Although it looks like wood in appearance, it lacks the vigor of authentic wood. Their maintenance is more comfortable than wood yet not as convenient as it is for aluminum or Steel.
- Steel – It is crack resistant and does not warp due to an increase in the atmosphere’s moisture content. Steel is also resistant to bad weather. One can customize their Steel made garage door opener as per their preference since the material is open to modifications. But it has some disadvantages as well, and they are – Steel doesn’t last long unless the panel is thick enough to tolerate weary usage, lousy weather, and denting. Steel is also prone to rust. Thus the owner must keep an eye on them. However, with all its shortcomings, Steel remains the preferable most material for garage doors due to it’s ‘low cost maintenance’.
- Glass and Aluminum – Since it is lightweight, it shall be more comfortable to install, and less pressure shall be exerted on the spring and the track securing them from future hazard. It is suitable for coastal areas since they are resistant to corrosion as well as rust. It acts as ‘an effective insulator’ when backed by ‘energy-efficient glass.’ However, their disadvantages include – they cannot be painted, and the glass panels are prone to denting and cracking. Despite the drawbacks, it cannot be denied that it is low maintenance and preferred by many.
- Wood – Wood has ‘the highest R-Value,’ which means it helps in regulating extreme temperatures. It also helps maintain a peaceful ambiance as it restricts the entry of external noise. However, it is expensive compared to other materials. It attracts termites, and their innate ‘bulkiness’ leads to an intricate process of installation. Besides, out of all the materials, wood needs a lot of maintenance.
