Not everyone has the resources to build a house from scratch, that’s why people go for ready-made houses. It won’t be a shock when a handful of elements and designs in the house don’t meet your taste and preferences like the garage doors for example. At first you may not mind that it isn’t what you imagined in terms of quality and style, but as time goes by and edges start to depreciate you should opt for better garage doors.
Wood Garage Doors
A lot of homeowners go for wood garage doors mainly because of the affordability, natural look and simple tooling. But do keep in mind that wood contracts and expands thus it cracks and warps because of the weather condition. Hence, don’t be all too surprised when it calls for regular maintenance; a bit of refurnishing and repainting has to be done from time to time. Those on a tight budget should look into tilt-up wood garage doors. Usually, the carpenter or installer do is tilt the build a tilt-up wood garage door right in the driveway itself by adding exterior plywood; the exterior plywood typically measure 3/8 inches in thickness and is attached to a frame made out of spruce, Douglas fir or any other wood with similar qualities.
Another option is the roll-up wood garage door with either panel or flush construction. Flush sections are achieved by fastening some plywood panels on top of the wooden frame, kind of like a minor version of a flush door. Meanwhile, panel doors involves the fitting of numerous rectangular panels right into the wooden frame. Wood doors that are considered as appearance grade, specifically the ones designed to be painted instead of stained, contain solid wood inserts; these are made of redwood, oak, cedar, mahogany and other hardwood panels.
