5 Things to Know About Steel Garage Doors

Steel doors are one of the most common types of garage doors sold to business owners. The benefits and beauty of steel, combined with an affordable price, makes steel especially attractive to people on a budget who want to improve their property value. If you're a business owner who would like to install a new garage door on your commercial building, here's what you need to know about the benefits of steel. 

1. Affordable

Of all the different garage door materials, steel is among the most affordable. For business owners on a budget, purchasing a steel model can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Businesses on a budget can also save money by working with their contractor to explore all the different garage door options. 

2. Energy Efficient

Steel itself is not inherently energy efficient, but it can be made efficient with an insulated core. If energy efficiency is important to you, talk to your contractor. Your garage door contractor can suggest models that will keep out the cold air in winter and the hot air in summer, while still keeping the door affordable. 

3. Attractive

Painted steel is a very attractive material. For business owners seeking the look of a wooden door, steel can be given texture that strongly resembles wood. Steel doors can be matched to nearly any building style. 

4. Fireproof

Unlike some other materials, like wood, steel doors will not burn in a fire. This can make the garage door a safe place to exit in the event that a fire occurs, and can also help reduce the chances of a fire occurring. 

5. Variety of Colors

Because steel garage doors are painted, they can be sold in a variety of colors. After being purchased and installed, steel garage doors can be painted again and again to match the home. If you have a business made of a siding material that you must paint frequently, a steel garage door is a sensible option because it can be painted along with your business. This gives you flexibility to change the appearance of your building on a regular basis, and helps you keep up with the appearance of the property.
