Are Modern Aluminum Doors Right For You?

Aluminum garage doors are attractive, sturdy, and practical. They're the perfect choice for a contemporary home. Whether you're seeking to improve energy efficiency in your garage, or you're just hoping to install the most attractive garage door that money can buy, aluminum doors are a perfect choice.  Wondering if aluminum is the right choice? Here's what you need to know. 


Sleek and Beautiful

Modern aluminum garage doors have a sleek, attractive style all their own. They come equipped in a metal frame with glass windows. Aluminum can also be painted in different colors to match different homes. 

Environmentally Friendly

Aluminum is completely recyclable, unlike some other garage door materials. Once your garage door has reached the end of its service life, you can talk to your sanitation department to find out more about having your garage door taken to a recycling center. Your garage door contractor will also be able to make suggestions about what to do with your door. 

Lightweight

Aluminum is a very lightweight metal, which makes it extra convenient. Metal garage doors are easy to lift during power outages when the electric door opener isn't working, so you'll never be stuck with your car in the garage. Because aluminum is so lightweight, these doors require less power and are easier on automatic garage door opening systems. Aluminum garage doors often break down less and last longer than heavier doors that require regular maintenance in order to function. 

Create a Light-Filled Garage

Glass panels in aluminum garage doors allow light to enter the garage at all hours of the day. Not only is daylight attractive, it also cuts back on your home energy usage. By relying on natural daylight instead of electric lights inside the garage, you'll reduce your home's carbon footprint and also your utility bills. 

Improve Property Value

Any time you replace a major system in the home like the garage door, you may enjoy a boost in property value. Installing a new garage door is an excellent way to please buyers and make your home stand out among other homes on the market. If you're thinking about selling your home sometime in the future, talk to a garage door contractor for a quote.
