Are you considering garage door options for your home? If you are, then you have probably taken a look at some of the luxurious garage door options available, such as wood. Wood is one of the few natural, renewable building materials. The natural colours and beautiful marks can add a charming appeal to your home.
The only problem with natural wooden garage door is its cost. It is expensive. And if you are working on a smaller budget, then it is probably not an option for you. However, you will be glad to know that there are some affordable alternatives to the more luxurious options in the market, such as timber look garage doors.
Timber look garage doors are designed to mimic the look and feel of natural wood. And thanks to modern manufacturing techniques, these garage doors offer almost all the benefits of natural timber at a much lower cost.
Here are the top 4 comparison points on which to base your garage door purchase decision:
- The DecoWood® garage doors are made from Australian BlueScope® Steel. Steel-Line uses a unique manufacturing process to create durable marine grade powder coating and an incredibly natural 3D timber finish. Unlike timber, DecoWood® garage doors won’t warp, shrink, splinter or rot. They require little maintenance and they are also completely impervious to termites.
- The Unicode® LUX garage doors are made from an imported pre-painted steel product. UniCote® uses a hot-dipped aluminium/zinc alloy-coated steel substrate. The outer layer is a polyester topcoat, using the latest infrared reflective pigments, baked on to a polyester primer. The result is an extremely durable paint system built to resist UV damage from Australia’s harsh sun, providing excellent colour and gloss retention.
- The Colorbond® timber look garage doors are made from Australian BlueScope® Steel. Thanks to the five-layer design of Colorbond® steel, it provides corrosion resistance and a durable baked on paint finish, making it look great and easy to maintain.
- The Biowood® garage doors are created using 0.85 density natural cellulose fibre from plantation-harvested timber combined with a specially formulated resin. It retains the natural look and feel of wood but is also lightweight and provides a high degree of water resistance. Biowood® does not bleach, split or crack, and is suitable for both bushfire regions (up to BAL-29 rating) and marine applications.
