What You Need to Know About Steel Garage Doors

Steel is the classic garage door material. With style, grace, durability and longevity, a well-built steel garage door contributes to curb appeal and the functionality of your garage. At Overhead Door, we sell a varied and attractive inventory of steel garage doors fit many homes and personal styles. If you’re thinking about buying a steel garage door for your property, here’s what you need to know.

Strength, Durability and Security

Steel makes your garage door one of the strongest, most durable doors available on the market. A good steel garage door will last for decades. Intruders like to take advantage of areas of weakness in the home, but because they’re so strong and heavy, steel garage doors can repel potential intruders.

Rust Resilience

Many people imagine that steel garage doors rust easily, but this isn’t true. Garage doors that are properly painted are rust-resistant. To remain rust-resistant, garage doors must be repainted when old coats of paint begin to wear away. With good maintenance, a steel garage door can last for many decades.


Often, homeowners want the look of wood but the durability of a strong metal. Steel garage doors can be molded to take on a wood-grain appearance, so you can enjoy the appearance of a traditional sturdy wooden door without all the hassle.


All our garage doors are beautiful and functional. Steel doors come in a range of colors to match your home’s siding and trim. You can work with your garage door installer to pick the right style and color for you.

Energy Efficiency

Insulation helps keep your garage comfortable throughout the year. At Overhead Door, our insulated steel garage door models come with insulation in between the panels, to ensure your comfort. After a little weatherstripping, you’ll find regulating the temperature in your garage is easier and your garage is a more enjoyable place to spend time.


Steel is one of the more basic types of garage doors on the market, and as a result, it is often one of the most affordable. If you’re a homeowner on a budget, a good steel garage door may be your best option. Talk to your garage door installer about different models so you can pick the one that fits your home improvement budget.

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.
