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.

Friendly customer service. Bought a hard to find remote for an old garage door opener. Opener has 3 buttons so I can program both doors to it. Easy to find location right off 29th St.

I was given a very fair quote. A week later a tech came and installed. Then came back to install lock. Tech was very professional and polite. Spen time with me making adjustments to my liking. I totally recommend Overhead door to my fellow Okies.

Overhead Door did a great job. They got me on the schedule the next day and fixed my spring in 30 minutes or less. Joe was great, professional, and courteous. Awesome service, and he didn't tell me I needed extra materials like the previous garage door people that quoted me $575. Overhead Door told me a price over the phone and it didn't change. I'd recommend them every time.

Pleased with their services. Coil spring broke and door stopped working. Spoke to Ron, and less than 24 hrs later the technician had us up n running again. These guys did exactly what they promised to do, with no nonsense. I like that.
