You’ll Be Amazed That These 10 Garage Doors Aren’t Actually Made of Wood
Who doesn’t love the look of a real wood garage door? The wood grain texture, rich look, and natural feel makes wood garage doors a desired addition to many homes. But a wood garage door may not be for everyone. Real wood doors can be more expensive than those made with other materials like steel and fiberglass, and they typically require more maintenance. Homeowners that want the rich look of a real wood garage door but without the regular maintenance have a lot of options to choose from. Most of our faux wood garage doors look very realistic, making it hard to tell that it’s not actually made with real wood.
What is the best faux wood garage door?
Getting a steel or fiberglass garage door for your home will not only improve your curb appeal but it can increase the value of your home. With a high consumer demand for wood doors, these very realistic faux wood door options will make your home stand out from the rest. Another frequently missed benefit to having a steel or fiberglass door with wood grain stains and textures is less maintenance. Wood needs to be regularly maintained to keep it in tip-top shape. If it’s not properly maintained on a regular basis it tends to change overtime due to weather and other factors, causing fading, cracking and warping. Here are our top four faux wood garage door models to consider:
Fiberglass Garage Doors
The first three garage doors in the line-up are our Overhead Door™ Impression fiberglass garage doors that utilize artfully molded wood grain fiberglass surface, which gives the beauty of wood without the maintenance. These garage doors are some of the closest you’ll get to the look of real wood. The fiberglass surface material can be easily molded which creates these beautiful designs.
