Steel is one choice and are very affordable both upfront and in terms of maintenance. Steel doors can be constructed as sectionals, roll-ups or tilt-ups and can be mounted on tracks. A word of warning though, if you are using steel as your choice of material it may not be the best idea for a double roll-up door because of its weight. Durban and coast areas are not suitable areas for steel doors due to corrosion. Ensure it's galvanized garage doors.
Wood is a great choice of material for garage doors and is most suitable for all style doors except roll-up doors, for good reason. These doors tend to be costly though but the advantage is that they can be designed and styled so that it compliments a home. They are also a great asset in terms of increasing the value of a property.
Aluminium doors are also economical but when teamed with glass can become a little on the expensive side. Their advantage though is that they require almost no maintenance. They are fashionable and can be constructed in almost any design to suit most homeowner’s needs.
Fibreglass garage doors are very popular, they require no maintenance and come in a host of finishes and are really great for coastal areas. Fibreglass doors can be constructed to suit most designs except roll-up garage doors. If security is the overriding reason for fitting a garage door the sectional overhead garage door is best, either a tilt-up or sectional. They are very hard to pry open from the outside and open much faster than other garage doors.
A standard double garage door measures 4.88m by 2.13m
