Steel Garage Doors

Steel doors are the most common type of garage doors and are usually more cost-effective than wood doors. Several colors are offered for your garage door by most manufacturers. You also have the choice to paint your garage door to match your home. There are three separate types of steel doors:

Aluminum Garage Doors

Aluminum garage doors offer architectural flexibility, maximum visibility and extreme durability. This type of garage door is maintenance-free residential garage door option.

So How Many Layers Do I Need Or Want For My Next Garage Door

  • Single layer garage door...Single layer steel garage doors are cut from a single sheet of galvanized steel. Single layer garage doors are usually the most economical of all steel garage doors.
  • Double layer garage door...Double layer steel garage doors have a galvanized steel skin on the outside with a thick layer of either polystyrene or polyurethane as a backer. The backer provides additional insulation and soundproofing to the garage door. This is a great choice for attached garages.
  • Triple layer garage door...Triple layer steel garage doors are assembled of the same materials as double layer doors with the addition of a galvanized skin on the inside to preserve the polystyrene or polyurethane from damage. Because there’s an added layer of steel this makes triple layer garage doors the most solid, sturdy and most soundproof of all garage doors. You also have the choice to add thicker insulation for greater R-Value. This type of garage door is highly recommended for attached garages.
