If you are looking to buy garage doors for a new construction or to replace old or already existing ones, it is important to know that you have several options to choose from for the material of the doors. The different material choices will change the look and function of your garage doors. Five garage doors that many homeowners enjoy are:

  2. Steel – Steel garage doors are made of two layers of galvanized steel. You can have your door insulated or not. Steel doors can be painted to match your home.
