Today’s doors are a vast improvement to their predecessors. They’re stronger, more durable, quieter, and much better insulated. Their structures are much more reliable, too, so they require much less maintenance. This gives you peace of mind that your door will work day in and day out.
Most new garage doors currently on the market are made of steel backed by rigid-foam insulation. Though wood used to be used for garage doors almost universally, it’s been replaced with steel because of the added maintenance wood doors require. Plastic doors have been recently added to the garage door market and have the added advantage that they’re virtually silent and never rust. http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/article/0,,219448,00.html
Aesthetics matter so much more than they did in the past. A garage door takes up about 30% of the exterior view of your home, so having an old, beat-up garage door really detracts from your home’s appearance. Upgrade to a modern garage door and suddenly, your home’s value and aesthetics will pop. Consider a custom door with horizontal ribbing or a non-textured flush door design. Most garage doors are only available in white, beige, and brown colors, but some doors can be specially ordered in other colors. Additionally, painting or staining a wood door is an option. The windows in your garage door can also be customized with various patterns and shapes to match your home’s décor.
