Steel is by far the most popular material for residential garage doors.

With recent innovations and expanded options, steel doors are available for the tightest budgets or to make a dramatic statement on a custom home. From flat panels to carriage house doors, no windows, small windows or large windows you have a lot of choices to get the look you want at the budget you need.

You can even get steel doors that look like wood. They are so good you have to get right up to the door to see that it's not wood.

Invented by Overhead Door in 1923, steel garage doors are the most popular choice for residential garage doors because they come in many styles and require minimal maintenance. With recent innovation and expanded options, steel garage doors are available for the tightest budgets or to make a dramatic statement on a custom home.
