Of the many commercial door materials available, steel is arguably the most preferred option. Many business owners choose steel overhead doors because they are widely known to be durable, beautiful and affordable. If you’re on the fence about which material to choose for your commercial garage doors, take a look at some of the advantages of choosing steel overhead doors.
Why Choose Steel Overhead Doors?
Steel can withstand extreme stress and force without breaking, bending or warping, which is a common issue with other commercial door materials such as wood and vinyl doors. Steel is inherently lightweight, so steel doors won’t overburden your garage door opener, if you have one. As a result, the garage door’s moving parts will last longer and will require fewer door repair calls.
Steel is very easy to mold into beautiful and attractive designs. That’s why steel doors are available in so many types of styles and colors. It would be very easy to find the type of doors which complement the exterior of your business venue. Steel is also rust-resistant, so you can expect your steel overhead doors to look good for many years to come. Even if the color fades, steel can be painted and repainted in any shade you desire. This makes it simple for you to be trendy with your business façade.
Steel doors provide great insulation, which in turn, helps your HVAC system operate more efficiently keeping your heating and cooling costs lower. Good insulation helps to keep temperatures at your business facilities at a comfortable level.
Steel doors are very easy to maintain which is one of the biggest reasons they are so popular. Oftentimes, all it takes to maintain them is to clean the surface once or twice a month and lubricate the moving parts once every three months. If you’re able to do that, aside from a hurricane or any other unexpected event, there’s no reason your steel door won’t last for years and even decades.
