New Garage Door Materials to Consider

Upgrading your garage door can make your home more attractive, therefore, improving curb appeal and property values. In addition, new garage door installation consistently ranks high on Remodeling‘s annual Cost vs. Value Report, making it a worthwhile improvement.

Once you’ve decided on a new door to compliment the architecture and landscape of your home, Sun Devil can professionally install the door, ensuring the system works optimally. An excellent way to increase the convenience of operating the door is to consider integrating an internet-connected garage door opener.

Garage Door Materials

There are many different garage door materials to consider, from aluminum to wood, when it’s time to either upgrade your garage door or replace an aging or damaged one. Some of the most common, not to mention, popular material choices include:


A cost-effective, lightweight, long-lasting choice to consider is aluminum. When coupled with ball-bearing nylon rollers and high-strength torsion springs, aluminum doors will prevent straining the garage door opener. Their beauty is further enhanced because they are not susceptible to corrosion, dents, or rust. They are also perfect for modern, full-view doors designed with window inserts and aluminum frames.


Conscientious consumers will appreciate the cost and environmental benefits of composite garage doors. They offer the natural look of wood while being affordable, durable, and low maintenance. These doors are manufactured from steel and composite, can be finished in your preferred color, and with insulation for quieter operation and energy efficiency.


Steel provides homeowners with design flexibility, offering various design and insulation options at an attractive price point, along with a substantial return on investment (ROI). According to Remodeling’s annual Cost vs. Value report, high-tensile strength steel, featuring foam insulation and factory-applied paint, has an average ROI of 93.8%. Additional benefits of steel include low maintenance and durability.


Natural wood offers some distinct advantages, such as complete customization, natural insulation, and attractive durability. They can be constructed in various species, sustainably harvested with some brands even offering reclaimed options, and then varnished, painted, or finished to your exact specifications. Ultimately, real wood doors will make a spectacular statement piece, maximizing your home’s curb appeal. 

In addition to these materials, you can choose from various options, further customizing the door to achieve the perfect look and enhance your curb appeal. There are many colors, design, finish, hardware, texture, and window options to consider.
