They require a deal more maintenance when compared to other materials. We would recommend that your wooden garage doors are oiled with a good quality exterior oil roughly every 3-6 months. The advantage to having a wooden door is that there is no comparison to the warmth and look of real wood. The thickness and build of wooden doors, in general, are usually more steady than other door types. Please note that our garage door prices vary so give us a call design and quote.

If you are working on a budget, then this door is ideal for you due to its combination of style and affordability.
