Just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you’re willing to compromise on quality. No one wants to be forking out every few years for a new garage door when the old one seizes up, the colour fades or that record-breaking summer storm sees it damaged beyond repair.

At Steel-Line Garage Doors, we pride ourselves on providing our customers with durable, stylish and weather-resistant garage doors that won’t break the bank. Here’s why our garage door options for budget-conscious homeowners are a cut above the rest.

Balancing budget, style and functionality

At Steel-Line, we’ve had decades of experience that have allowed us to perfect the balance of providing budget-conscious yet durable garage doors. Customer service is the single most important part of our business. Making our customers happy by manufacturing products they are proud to display at the front and centre of their homes is how we’ve become industry leaders.

However, when it comes to buying a new garage door, budget shouldn’t be your only consideration. You should also think about the space that you have to work with in terms of fitting a garage door and the type of door that will best suit the architectural style of your home. After all, a new garage door is an investment that can greatly improve the appearance of your home and add thousands of dollars to its value.

The best types of garage doors for those on a budget

The cost of your garage door will depend largely on the style you choose as well as the materials. But don’t just consider the upfront cost. You should also consider ongoing maintenance costs and the cost of repairs for things like automatic controllers, tracks, rollers, hinges and springs.


Cost-effective materials for garage doors

    • Aluminium garage doors are cost-effective, lightweight, rust resistant and low maintenance. Steel-Line has a huge range of aluminium composite inserts that can be installed with aluminium frames or no frames at all, depending on the look you are after. Despite being very affordable, they offer impressive durability and strength and are even vibration-absorbent.
    • Strong, long-lasting and available in a huge range of colours, steel garage doors aren’t just affordable, they are also extremely stylish. Steel-Line garage doors are made from genuine BlueScope Colorbond and Zincalume and UniCote LUX. These are top-of-the-line steel products that are guaranteed to stand the test of time. It also means homeowners have the choice of dozens of colours, including wood-look and patterned designs.

Cost-effective garage door styles

    • Roller garage doors are great value for money. Compared to other styles, such as sectional doors, which are made up of many panels, roller doors require very little maintenance as they are made from one piece of steel. Their overall cost can vary depending on their size, features that are required to make them resistant to cyclones or bushfires, and whether you operate them manually or have them automated.
    • If your garage has limited headroom or a sloped floor, a tilt garage door might be the best option for you. Built in a single panel and with a reinforced internal steel frame, Steel-Line’s range of tilt doors are designed and manufactured to last a lifetime without the worry of constant maintenance.

Steel-Line offers durability on a budget

Steel-Line Garage Doors are manufactured here in Australia and are designed to cope with our harsh weather conditions. They are predominately made with high-quality Colorbond Steel, so they are strong and durable. And, unlike our competitors, each of our garage doors is custom-made and manufactured specifically to your requirements.

Our roller door range features heavy-duty bottom rails with durable PVC weather seals. They revolve on precision-made drum wheels, aluminium guides ensure quiet opening and closing, and they are counterbalanced using helical coil springs to ensure they are perfectly balanced for smooth operation. We also use heat-treated springs to give you many years of trouble-free operation.

High-quality insulation can save you money

Investing in energy-efficient insulated garage doors may cost you more upfront, but they can end up paying for themselves.

An insulated garage door will help reduce thermal exchange in your home, helping you to cut the amount of energy required to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. The reduction in energy bills alone may make an insulated garage door a more economical choice in the long run, particularly if your garage is attached to your home.

Don’t skimp on garage door installation

You should never attempt to install a garage door yourself — garage door installation is a job that’s best left to the professionals. Not only could attempting to install a garage door yourself void your warranty, but it could also mean your door becomes dangerous or inoperable. The cost of installing your new garage door will depend on its size and style.

Steel-Line’s dedicated installation teams will ensure your door is in perfect working order before they leave. They’ll test it to see if it opens and closes smoothly and set up any accessories, such as automatic door openers.
