Should I Buy A Wooden Garage Door?

19th February 2024

Wooden garage doors, whether side-hinged wooden garage doors or up and over, have that classic appeal, and wood has stood the test of time as a versatile garage door material. But, does that mean you should buy timber garage doors?

In this short blog post, we look at three of the outstanding benefits of wooden garage doors, and why we wouldn't hesitate in recommending you invest in wooden garage doors for your domestic or commercial garage.

Wooden Garage Doors Are Exceptionally Durable

Contrary to some common misconceptions, one of the key benefits of solid wood garage doors is their exceptional durability, even over long periods of time, and under constant extreme weather conditions. In fact, according to a recent study by the International Wood Products Association, high-quality wooden garage doors can outlast steel garage doors, when properly maintained using the right coatings and treatments.

Wooden Garage Doors Look Good

Wooden garage doors provide a natural aesthetic that has a unique ability to complement a whole range of architectural styles, whether we’re talking the traditional look, or something completely modern.
And, in a survey carried out by the National Association of Realtors, it was found that homes with wooden garage doors tend to have higher resale values than homes with garage doors made from other materials.

Wooden Garage Doors Provide Excellent Insulation

Wood is a natural insulator, therefore it has an astonishing ability to help regulate the temperature in your garage, which can also have the benefit of creating energy savings by reducing the need for additional heating or cooling.
Wooden garage doors can also add an eco-friendly dimension to your home, especially when the garage doors are manufactured from wood sourced from responsibly managed forests focussed on sustainability.


We hope this short post helps you make your decision of whether to buy wooden garage doors easier, but, if you need further help, we’d always suggest seeking out your local garage door professional for advice.
