Fiberglass Garage Doors can offer you lightweight, energy efficient protection for your car. With fiberglass, you can a much lighter material than steel or wood but you don’t get the strength that wood and steel offer.
Advantages of Fiberglass:
~Choice of Colors or Wood Look You can paint these doors so you have your choice of colors. They also come in simulated wood.
~Energy Efficient Check the foam insulation inside the door. That helps make the door energy efficient.
One important advantage fiberglass has over wood and steel is that itwon’t shrink or warp. Once a door has warped or changed shape, it’s much more difficult to get a tight seal and it’s the seal that keeps air from passing through.
~Resistant to Damage Both fiberglass and steel are resistant to cracking and warping but fiberglass is also resistant to denting and rusting making it even more weather resistant.
Fiberglass can resist rust and salt air corrosion so it can be a good choice for people who live near the ocean.
~Low Maintenance Steel and fiberglass are not completely maintenance free but certainly require much less attention than wood. Which ever material you decide on, don’t forget to keep an eye on the hinges.
~Lightweight Like aluminum, fiberglass is light. The downside of this is that it is not as strong as wood and steel.
~Attractive Choose the color and features that you prefer and enhance any entry way of your home.
