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.
