So you decided to buy a timber garage door – Congratulations, it’s a great choice!

A natural wood finish will definitely add class to your property.

However, if you still haven’t made up your mind, we strongly recommend this article for you to find out all pros and cons of timber and timber look garage doors.

Both timber and timber-look doors offer a number of unique benefits. Based on your situation and what you’re looking for in a garage door, one or the other may be a more practical or more cost-effective solution.

  1. Timber-look garage doors are low maintenance

As the name suggests, timber-look garage doors look just like timber doors. However, unlike timber doors, they are constructed from synthetic materials and metal.

There are several key benefits of using steel as opposed to timber. For many, the biggest benefit is that steel doesn’t require much maintenance. It’s strong and durable, with no need for resealing.

  1. Timber garage doors are made from real wood

Timber-look garage doors look great, they’re often more cost effective, and they require significantly less maintenance. However, for some homeowners, there is simply no substitute for the natural look and feel of real wood timber.

  1. Timber-look garage doors are cheaper

One of the benefits of using alternative materials is that it often lowers production costs. Lower production costs mean a lesser retail price-tag for consumers.

  1. Timber-look garage doors are termite & rot resistant

Because there’s no timber for the termites to get their nasty teeth into, timber-look garage doors are completely termite resistant. Timber-look doors also won’t rot, warp or split. They’re also generally made from non-combustible materials.

Because timber-look garage doors are made from hardy and long last materials, often the only maintenance required is the occasional wash with soap and water. As well as, like all garage doors, an annual service.
Whichever you choose, you’re sure to love your new garage door.
