The Benefit of a Timber Look Garage Door
There's no doubt, timber is a wonderful building material. It's a natural material that is very adaptable and adds a touch of class to your home. If you've already chosen timber as the material for your garage door, please read the following and consider the use of a timber look garage door instead.
You can compliment your home with a natural, timber look finish without the price tag, hassle and maintenance headaches that come with real timber.
Timber look garage doors offer many benefits over natural wood.
A Timber Look Garage Door Offers Low Maintenance
A timber look garage door is almost visibly indistinguishable from the real this. They are usually manufactured from steel and designed to look like real timber. Modern painting methods and finishes offer a real timber look. However, steel does not require much maintenance at all. It is strong and durable and you don't need to keep re-sealing as you would with real wood.
Timber Look Garage Doors Cost Less
Steel is a relatively cheap raw material. The manufacturing process is quicker and less complicated, meaning lower labour costs. A timber look garage door does not require thick panels to be strong and durable. Therefore steel doors are much lighter and require less powerful machinery in the opening mechanisms.
Pest Resistance & Safety
As there is no organic material for termites to eat, a timber look garage door offers the homeowner more resistance to termites. Steel doors also do not warp or split – another bad aspect of real wood.
Wood is also flammable, steel even offers protection against flames.
