Fiberglass Garage Doors
If you are looking for a garage door that resembles wood (but isn't wood) and looks great, you may want to consider a fiberglass garage door. While this garage door type is not hugely popular, there are still those who prefer this door type. For instance, people living near the ocean often opt for fiberglass garage doors because the fiberglass resists salt-aircorrosion.
Fiberglass garage doors are constructed with aluminum frames and fiberglass panels. The panels are lightweight, and the door ends up at about the same weight as an aluminum door. Some of the disadvantages are that they break easily in cold weather, they yellow with age and are poor insulators (compared to other garage door materials).
For those wondering about cost, fiberglass garage doors are less expensive than steel ones and a good-quality, average-sized fiberglass garage door can be purchased for under$300.00.
