Offering a timeless, authentic look, wood garage doors can enhance the curb appeal of any home. The doors are increasingly popular for those seeking to give their homes a touch of classic charm. The durability of wood materials is yet another advantage. Read on for a closer look at the benefits of choosing a wood garage door for your home:
Most homes in the United States are equipped with aluminum, steel, or composite garage doors. However, wood garage doors are an alternative that truly stands out. If you’re seeking to enhance the value and curb appeal of your home, installing a wood garage door can be a smart choice. In a buyer’s housing market, anything that can make your home more appealing is a great advantage.
Available in mahogany, redwood, cedar, and a host of other species, wood garage doors offer the flexibility you need to complement your home design. You can paint or stain wood doors in whatever shade you desire, which adds an additional layer of flexibility. Also, you can choose between full frame-and-panel wood doors and the less expensive wooden frame doors filled with foam insulation.
Built from strong, durable material, wood garage doors are meant to stand the test of time. In order to stay in good shape, however, wood doors require diligent care and maintenance. You’ll want to wash them a few times a year to rid them of dirt and other contaminants. Also, wood doors need to be repainted and refinished often, especially in a damp climate like Central Florida. Given proper care, wood garage doors can stand up to years of weather and daily use.

Since your residential garage door is likely your home's largest entry point and a frequent passageway, choosing one is a big decision. Two choices for a beautiful residential garage door are natural wood or faux wood that’s applied to metal. Each option comes with unique advantages and disadvantages—read on to find out whether a real wood or faux wood residential garage door is right for your home:
Wood doors are known for their attractiveness. You can't beat stain and sealing that shows off the grains of cedar, redwood, or oak. If your garage faces the street, custom garage doors made of wood will add an attractive facet to your home for arriving visitors. Though faux wood is made to look like wood, people walking by will be able to tell that it’s fake if they look closely. If your residential garage door faces the side of your property, a metal door with faux wood might be more appropriate.
Metal doors, whether made of aluminum or steel, are more durable than wood ones. Unlike real wood, faux wood on a metal door doesn't require refinishing, and you don't have to worry as much about cracks marring the surface. Residential garage doors with faux wood cladding are especially durable since they hold up well against sun exposure.
When you're choosing between types of residential garage doors, keep in mind that wood doors are lighter than metal ones. The motor and other parts responsible for raising a garage door wear out faster if the door is heavier. Metal doors with faux wood are also less expensive than their real wood counterparts.
Florida Door Solutions offers steel doors, composite doors, doors with faux wood cladding, custom garage doors made of wood, and numerous other choices. We’re happy to help Apopka, Florida homeowners select the best residential garage doors for their homes. To find out how we can help you, give us a call at (407) 378-4867.
