Steel garage doors - Galvanized steel garage doors are a hardwearing and sturdy choice for a garage door. These come in different levels of strength, with a number (usually between 24 and 27) indicating the strength of the steel. As a rule, the lower the number, the stronger the galvanized steel will be. Steel garage doors operate with torsion springs, which are high tension springs and should be installed by our professional garage door replacement experts in Seattle, WA.
Wood garage doors - Whether you like the organic look of natural wood, or the classic painted wood finish, a wooden garage door can be an attractive feature on both heritage homes and modern houses.

Taking these steps will ensure your door looks great and stays in good condition.
