The main benefit of installing a composite garage door is by far the low maintenance requirements. Unlike solid wooden garage doors which require regular maintenance to preserve its aesthetics, composite garage doors require minimal upkeep due to the innovative encapsulation process which allows it to keep its natural wood-like appearance over time, meaning that it will not rot, decay or warp. The nature of composite materials also allows the garage doors to be made in a variety of different styles and designs to suit the individual preferences of homeowners.

More than that, however, composite materials are environmentally friendly. Manufactured from 95% recycled content, composite materials conserve natural resources in support of the use of green products in sustainable building methods, thus minimising the impact of deforestation and global warning. In addition, composite garage doors can also be insulated to improve the energy efficiency of your home.

So if it’s a unique and stylish garage door you’re after, opt for wood plastic materials. Not only are they more durable and relatively maintenance-free, but they also contribute to a greener way of living.
