On the surface, a garage door is simply a means of opening and closing your garage, but in reality, it brings so much more to your home. A garage door is a vital feature of any home, playing a key part in your home’s overall exterior appearance, feel, and curb appeal. With so many styles of home design out there, you’ll be relieved to know there is versatility when it comes to premium garage door options.

When purchasing a garage door, rather than focusing on the cheapest option, you should look for the best value for money. This doesn’t necessarily mean the most expensive door, but rather the best door you can purchase within your budget. At Steel-Line, we’re committed to working with our customers to set up the perfect door for their homes. Let’s explore the variety of choices out there when it comes to premium garage doors and some of the considerations you should take into account when making your choice.

Types of Premium Garage Door Materials

A garage door can be built from a range of building materials, but what is the best option for you? Each material has its own benefits, ranging from durability and aesthetic appeal. When choosing a material for your home, we recommend considering various factors, including the design style of the rest of your home, the environment you’re building in, and your personal preferences.

Natural Timber Garage Door with V Joint Profile


Wood gives a stylish look to traditional and contemporary home garages. Timber can be used for sectional doors or tilt doors, with the slates installed on an aluminium frame for extra strength and support. The most popular type of timber with our customers is western red cedar, as it is lightweight but durable.

aluminium garage door


Lightweight, durable, and affordable — it’s no wonder aluminium is one of the go-to materials for garage doors. Able to be designed for even the roughest of Australian conditions, aluminium doors are available in a wide range of designs, including louvre, slatted sectional, mesh sectional, and more.

Aluminium framing and opal Acrylic inserts.⁣


Acrylic is a transparent, but strong, plastic material to be used for windows or entire garage door facades. With 250 times the impact strength of glass, acrylic is a safer option for garage doors and ideal for even cyclone-prone areas. It is fantastic for allowing light into your garage and adding a distinct style to your home.

Top-Notch Insulation and Energy Efficiency Features

With rising energy costs and concerns about the environment being on everyone’s mind, making a home eco-friendly and sustainable has never been more relevant. What many homeowners don’t realise is that their garage door plays a huge role in influencing their energy usage. Insulating your garage door can help keep heat in your home during winter and maintain a comfortable temperature year-round, meaning your house requires less help from heaters and air-con.

You’ll notice the benefits of your energy bill. Insulated garage doors also help soundproof your home. So, whether you’re sick of hearing your neighbour’s conversations, or you’d like to spare them your unique singing style, our insulation options will have you covered!

There is a range of eco-friendly materials to choose from when building your garage door. Using sustainable materials that still up your house’s curb appeal? Sounds like a win-win to us.

Noise Reduction and Smooth Operation Features

No one wants a noisy garage door. It’s not only annoying to hear, but it’s usually a sign that things aren’t quite right with your garage door. Whether you’re looking at sectional garage doors or a roller door, a high-quality door opener motor will provide years of top-quality, reliable service with reduced noise. Regular maintenance and professional services will ensure all parts of your garage door system are in top working order and minimise any worrying sounds.

Maintenance and Durability Considerations

When purchasing a new garage door, you want to consider both short-term and long-term costs. A garage door is an investment for your home and one you want to last for years to come. While a cheap garage door may save you some money initially, the frequent need for repairs, high-energy usage, and short lifespan will negate that original saving. A quality design built from the highest quality building materials makes sure you’ll get both short-term and long-term value from your investment. Professional maintenance and upkeep are key to getting the most out of your garage for years to come. A garage door service allows our experts to fine-tune your door and catch any potential problems early, saving you time, frustration, and money in the long run.

Finding the Right Size and Fit for Your Garage

When purchasing your new door, it’s essential to make sure you know the right size for your property. Correct measurements are about more than just making sure your new door fits (although that is certainly a big plus). It’s about finding a fit that will provide an optimal performance day in and day out for years to come. This is why we offer a free measure and quote service with our product expects. We’ve installed thousands of doors in our time, so when we provide measurements, you can rest assured they’ll be accurate, and your installation will be a success.

Do you have an unusual size requirement? A garage door can be custom-designed to suit your unique space. We’ve designed and installed garage doors in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and locations and are confident we’re up to the challenge of your project.

Additional Features and Enhancements

When it comes to your new garage door, you can install a range of accessories. For families — especially those with younger members — safety features, including sensors, can help avoid accidents and injuries. Other features such as garage door openers, Powermesh and remotes are also available. For more details on the enhancements you can add to your door, check out our accessories page.
