Steel carriage garage doors have many advantages over wood doors. The first is strength. Metal garage doors that is constructed of multiple 25 gauge or heavier steel layers will provide the durability and strength to keep the weather out. If you live in areas that have very cold winters or you choose to heat or cool your garage you should consider a door with a high R-value. Sandwiching polyurethane foam between two or more sheets of galvanized steel will give you an R-value of 15 or more. This will not only save you money but also allow the use of your garage year around.
An additional feature of steel doors comes from the fact you can have a wood façade exterior. Many manufactures produce steel carriage garage doors that closely mimic the look of genuine wooden carriage doors. A layer of Cedar, Redwood or Hemlock plywood veneer is placed on the exterior of the door giving it all the look of a wood door. However you will still be saddled with the higher maintenance cost and effort of standard wood doors.
