Aluminium garage doors are common on both commercial and residential properties, and there are many reasons why they are so popular. Our South African climate with heavy rains and harsh sun means that serious consideration needs to go hand in hand with the choice of material that is best to use on the outside of the building. Although there are multiple types of garage doors, we are shining the spotlight on aluminium ones.
Aluminium Garage Door Properties that Make them Popular
Aluminium garage doors are almost guaranteed to stand the test of time. They won’t need to be replaced in a hurry; they don’t corrode in the wet weather or become brittle in the sun. They don’t succumb to rust and won’t get eaten by insects (like sometimes with untreated wood). Aluminium has been known to last a minimum of about 15 years and will last even longer with a slight bit of maintenance.
Speaking of maintenance, aluminium doesn’t require any special treatment or care initially. These garage doors are easily cleaned and maintained, making them super convenient and cost-effective for property owners. The only maintenance they may need is a yearly service, an occasional wipe down with a cloth and a mild detergent, or a quick hose down.
As one of the most sustainable building materials in the world, aluminium is a great choice for those conscious about their carbon footprint. It is easy to recycle, so once it does need replacing, your old one can be recycled for someone else to use!
