This blog will discuss another popular garage door material: wood. Thinking about getting a wood garage door? Here’s what you need to know.

Pros of wood

Face it – wood garage doors are gorgeous. This traditional material has been being used for garage doors for decades, and for good reason. There are so many design options for wood garage doors – paint and stains are available in unlimited variations. Wood garage doors can be crafted from mahogany, hemlock, and other wood types. If your home is historic, wood often compliments the style of your home perfectly. 

Cons of wood

We wouldn’t be doing our due diligence if we didn’t mention the drawbacks of wood. If you decide to go with a wood garage door, know that you’ll have to deal with more maintenance than steel, vinyl, and other garage door materials. To maintain the integrity and beauty of your wood garage door, you’ll have to get it maintained once a year. This yearly maintenance must include sanding and painting. When wood garage doors aren’t properly maintained, they can absorb moisture and potentially even start to rot. Additionally, wood garage door models are often much more expensive than their vinyl or steel counterparts.
