At 31-W Insulation, we carry many different types of garage doors with a variety of options.
As you drive through a neighborhood, you’ll likely see different components that are used to add functionality and create visual appeal for each home. On homes that have garages, one of the components that can transform the look and feel of the structure is the door that protects this space. Garage doors come in many different styles and materials, giving homeowners more control over the appearance of their garages from the outside. When choosing from the available types of garage doors, it’s helpful to understand the differences between them, as well as the advantages of each.
Although garage doors used to be made primarily from wood, most modern doors feature metal construction for improved durability. You can choose from steel or aluminum garage doors, both of which offer a number of appealing benefits. Steel doors are more secure because they include two layers of heavy-duty galvanized steel. A steel garage door can also be painted to match the color scheme of your home’s exterior. An aluminum garage door is more cost-effective than the steel type. This material is also moisture-resistant, helping to reduce the risk of corrosion and rust, and can be embossed to add design elements.

You can rest assured that we’ll give you all the information you need to make an informed decision about which type of garage door is right for your home.
Do costs vary depending on which type of garage door I choose?
As is the case with most things, garage door prices are based on manufacturing cost, supply & demand, availability, construction quality, and materials used.

Does installation differ with various types of garage doors?
Yes, to an extent. For example, a heavier garage door requires a garage door opener and other hardware capable of handling the added weight. Rest assured that our installation team will take care of any upgrades that are needed based on the garage door you have chosen for your home.
