These days, home owners have more choice and selection than ever before when it comes to their new garage door. And while this is certainly a welcome trend – since more consumer choice is always a good thing – it can also lead to some confusion.
Fortunately, you don’t have to be a garage door expert – or spend days learning the ins and outs of garage doors – to understand what’s right for your home and family. You simply need to understand the benefits.

 

Below, we’re pleased to present the benefits of choosing a steel garage door to protect, beautify and add value to your home now and for years to come:

 

Benefit #1: Steel Garage Doors are Versatile
One of the key advantages of steel is that it’s a remarkably lightweight material. As such, steel garage doors place very little “stress and strain” on your garage door opening system (which consists of torsion springs and other components). This can translate in added years of use and fewer maintenance issues down the road.

 

Benefit #2: Steel Garage Doors are Strong
While they’re lightweight, steel garage doors are extremely tough. They can easily handle all that a Canadian winter can throw their way. Plus, all of the doors we supply here at Atlas Overhead Doors are extremely well insulated, which helps keep your home cool in the summer, and warm in the winter. It also keeps your energy bills low, which is always a welcome benefit!

 

Benefit #3: Steel Garage Doors are Stylish
Steel garage doors are stylish and ideal for modern homes. They can also easily be painted and re-painted in a virtually limitless number of colours and shades. And as a great bonus, steel garage doors never rust, either.

 

Benefit #4: Steel Garage Doors are Good for the Planet
It feels great knowing that, when it’s time to replace your steel garage door (although this won’t be for decades), that instead of it ending up in a landfill or creating pollution, it can be recycled – which is good for the planet. Perhaps your eco-leadership will even inspire your friends and neighbors to follow your lead!

 

Helping You Make the Right Choice
At Atlas Overhead Doors, we’re dedicated to providing you with honest, clear and objective advice, so that you can make an informed and stress-free choice that fits your home and family’s needs today – and tomorrow.
