In our weird and wonderful climate, having a selection of different types of garage doors in South Africa to choose from is important.
Each of our provinces differs in humidity, rain, sun and wind, so it’s important that home fixtures are suited for these factors to ensure they last as long as possible. Not only will this save on money, but it’ll save time on home maintenance too!
Garage Door Types
Choose the right garage door type for your home by checking out the options below:
Aluminium Garage Doors
Aluminium is a popular metal used on homes because of its weather-resistant properties. Its natural oxide coating protects against harmful UV rays, and prevents rust that can form because of rain and humidity. It’s also very strong and won’t break easily. Because of their rust-resistance, aluminium garage doors are perfect for places closer to the coast (with higher levels of humidity), or in the city. They are extremely versatile, and can be custom-made to suit your home’s needs.
Wooden Garage Doors
Wooden garage doors are a popular choice because of their aesthetics. They can be stained in different colours to match your style, on different wood depending on your preference. Wood is, however, susceptible to bending or warping in high moisture and will age badly given high humidity. Therefore, these garage doors are recommended for dryer provinces; even then they will need to be maintained correctly to ensure a longer lifespan.
Steel Garage Doors
Steel garage doors are great choice for busy home owners looking for additional security. They can be customised with different features (like additional panels, etc) and require little to no maintenance. They don’t provide much insulation, however, so if you stay in a colder part of the country, this may not be the best choice for you. They are corrosion resistant, so they may be perfectly suited to warmer, humid provinces.
