Composite garage doors offer the best of both worlds: a garage door that is affordable and durable, and environmentally friendly at the same time. "Composite material" is engineered material made from two or more materials. Composite materials are used to manufacture numerous items, from airplane parts to doors and garage doors. The composite materials used for garage doors are recycled materials, which is what makes the doors eco-friendly.
The lead manufacturer of composite garage doors is Jeld Wen. Its composite garage doors are made from 80% recycled wood fibers to produce an amazingly durable, low-maintenance garage door. The Jeld Wen composite garage doors are built with environmentally safe, CFC-free, expanded polystyrene insulation, making them extra energy-efficient.

Thermoset urethane resins are combined with refined cellulose fibers to create an exterior door skin that is almost completely resistant to moisture, cracking, rotting, sub-zero freezing, desert heat and the damaging effect of the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
