The Pros and Cons of Wood Doors in Utah
Modern trends are leaning more and more towards a classic look, and wood is the star of the show. The warmth of the grained texture makes it timeless, and the perfect addition when you want your home to look welcoming and comfortable. Wood is especially popular for those who want the carriage house look for their home, a charming but aristocratic effect reminiscent of traditional stables. This style has seen a huge upswing in recent years, as people strive to achieve a polished yet effortlessly relaxed mood in their home design.
However, wood has some drawbacks. Cheap wood shows signs of wear and tear in no time at all, and doesn’t offer any protection or insulation from the elements. It’s necessary to get a high quality of hardwood in order to ensure that your garage door doesn’t look like a weatherbeaten sailor after a single winter. Furthermore, no matter what kind of wood you get, or how you treat it, you’ll still have to re-paint and re-stain regularly to make sure that it looks beautiful.
Durability of Steel, Aesthetics of Wood
Steel, on the other hand, requires virtually no maintenance. And although steel used to be a bit of a one-trick pony, difficult to manipulate and design, modern developments have given us the ability to add texture and color that you’ll love. Our steel carriage house doors are available in all of the traditional carriage door configurations, and they require little to no maintenance on your part for them to keep up beautiful appearance and function.
