Outdoor Fiberglass Garage Doors
Garage doors come in a variety of styles and materials to match most any house. If you are looking for a garage door that resembles wood (but isn’t wood) and looks great, you may want to consider a fiberglass garage door. Fiberglass garage doors are not as common as wooden, steel, or aluminum ones. These doors consist of aluminum frames mixed with fiberglass panels. Some prefer this material over conventional alternatives, because fiberglass is lighter and relatively cheaper, but not the best choice. The characteristics of these garage doors differ substantially from the ones displayed by this material in itself. The new models have a steel framework under the fiberglass panels that give the garage doors more resistance from the wear and tear. The heat transfer resistivity has been improved by the R-value special foam cores that are covered with air pockets.
These air pockets reduce the heat transmission that is allowed to pass through it. This material work excellently in tropical areas where they efficiently resist the corrosion caused by salt saturated air that flows from the ocean shores. For those wondering about cost, fiberglass garage doors are less expensive than steel ones and a good-quality, average-sized fiberglass garage door can be a good choice for your outdoor garage.
