Garage Door Highlight: Aluminum Doors

Keeping a home safe is among a home owner’s highest priorities, and that means having strong and functional doors throughout your home, including the garage. This is true whether you are building your home or are just remodeling your garage. But there are other concerns too, such as keeping the home looking attractive, and looking at garage door prices and installation that are affordable. Because of this, choosing the right garage door is something that takes careful consideration of all the options available.

Common Types of Garage Door Materials

There are several different materials that makeup garage doors:

  • Wood or wood composite are attractive but are often high priced, and although they are sturdy overall, they will most likely need frequent refinishing.
  • Fiberglass doors can look like other materials, such as wood, however, they are temperature sensitive, and prone to yellowing and breakage, especially when it gets cold.
  • Vinyl doors offer more limited design options but tend to be more durable than fiberglass.
  • Steel doors are made from galvanized steel and are prone to rust and dents. In many cases, steel doors also use fiberglass in order to help with these issues.
  • Aluminum is similar to steel but is lighter in weight. Denting can be an issue, but some designs incorporate laminated panels in order to combat this issue. Also, unlike steel, they are not vulnerable to rusting and are normally less expensive than steel.

Options in Aluminum garage doors. Because of their lightweight and manageability, aluminum garage doors are among the most popular among homeowners, At Overhead Door, we have different models available in our modern aluminum garage doors that will fit different size garages and meet environmental needs. Examples include:

  • Model 511 has an aluminum garage door with a standard narrow width frame and customizable door sizes to 16′.

  • Envy™ Model 956 has an aluminum full-view door, with glass panels that are mounted on aluminum frame, that still has a modern frameless look.

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.
