Plymouth Garage Doors

In the Plymouth area there are many Garage Door suppliers and installers available, and with the huge variety in garage doors available help and advice on choosing the right garage door for your needs.

With all of the different types of garage doors that are on offer, you might need an expert to help you when you go to choose the right door for your garage. The most traditional type of garage door is the wooden door. Although wood makes a great insulator, this material doesn’t always stand up well to the wear and tears of the harsh winter weather, even in Plymouth you want a garage door that stands up to the weather. The protective coating on the wood of the garage door will wear away over time and you will need to repaint or apply a new coat of stain to the door on a regular basis. Wood holds moisture from the rain and snow and therefore gets heavier over time. This extra weight may cause problems with the garage door opener and may also make it difficult for you to open the door yourself. 

Steel garages doors are possibly the most common in the UK today, with panels of galvanized steel assembled in a similar manner as the hinged wooden doors. These panels fold together as the door opens upward. Steel is not as good an insulator as wood, so double panels are used and the space between them is filled with insulation. This enables you to have better heat is the garage, especially if it is attached to the house. If you do not need to have the garage heated, then you would only need a single panel in the steel door. Of course not only does it get cold in winter, but it gets hot in summer, especially with the record summers we have been experiencing in Plymouth recently.

The manufacturers of doors for garages are now making use of composite materials that stand up better to the weather and are less expensive that steel doors. They are also available in more designs that fit with the décor of your house, so you can have a door that looks to be wooden when it actually isn’t. The wood is combined with resin to make it more durable. Vinyl doors are also popular in garages, especially in homes that have vinyl siding on the exterior. The door can be the same colour as the siding and accentuate the outside of the home. This is also popular because it is not only more durable, but is also dent resistant.
