Garage Door Romance

Can any homeowner live without a garage door?

People leave garage doors alone until they’re broken, even though they can make a family safe. Garage doors are primarily made from two materials, steel and wood.

The scale of drudgery that they entail differentiates steel from wood residential doors, confirmed the product manager of a leading manufacturer of overhead rolling doors. Not much is needed to keep in optimum state steel doors coated with baked enamel. The enamel is a protective covering, needing only minor touch ups for scratches, for steel doors.

However, steel doors can also be painted. There are also those who prioritize a blend between the doors and the rest of the home exterior, preferring a full bodied paint. No harm comes to galvanized steel doors from rain, sleet, or snow.

Wood doors, unlike their steel cousins, can be ground down, resulting in rifts and sagging, if they are not safeguarded. It is highly recommended that at least two coats of oil based paint, stain or other exterior finish are applied. A single coat must be applied on an annual basis to preserve the wood.

Those who heed this guidance can expect their doors to stay looking new for decades to come. In fact, wood doors often retain their new appearance longer than steel doors because they are more flexible. It is this suppleness that helps it resist impact. Wood cannot be distorted or wounded by a brief rap of a solid object. However, steel doors have been known to bow or succumb to damage.

Insulation is possible with flush doors of either wood or steel, but it is not possible with wood panel doors. Insulation only works if weather stripping is put all around the door.

The doors can be hushed and strengthened with insulation. To insulate the whole garage, more than the door should be taken care of. Measurements of the garage opening, head room, and side room, should all be taken into consideration when getting a garage door. The area from the top of the opening to the nearest impediment is the headroom.

Similarly, the side room measures the distance from the side of the opening to the nearest obstruction on the wall. Getting the hardware in is all about correct measurements. The homeowner should ask the dealer, who, quite often offer free estimates to the consumer, to measure the door opening. No matter the cost, garage doors are best mounted by the dealer.
