Fibreglass garage doors are an appealing option for homeowners who want to achieve the visual effect and appeal of natural wood at a more affordable price. Moreover, you’ll save money and avoid the common problems associated with old-fashioned wood doors, such as warping, cracking, and rotting. Garage One offers a variety of options in fibreglass doors for homeowners in Southern Ontario to choose from, including Wayne Dalton manufactured doors. Our fully customizable overhead doors have the classic look of wood carriage house doors -- but they’re not wood!

What Are Fibreglass Garage Doors?

Fibreglass garage doors are constructed of a steel base which is covered by a wood-grain fibreglass mould, giving them the outward appearance of regular wooden garage doors. The fiberglass coating not only provides a stunning finish but also strengthens the inner steel framework and provides a protective layer against the elements. Essentially, they are a more affordable and efficient alternative to traditional wooden doors.

Fibreglass Garage Doors vs. Wooden Garage Doors

One of the most attractive features of a wooden garage door is its striking physical appearance. A wooden door adds a touch of refined décor to your home, which improves your curb appeal and can increase the value of your home. However, wooden doors tend to have a few disadvantages as well, which may not make them the best fit for all situations. The good news is that fibreglass doors can provide a solution to these potential issues while still giving you the same luxurious look. Here are four good reasons to consider installing a fibreglass garage door instead of a wooden one:

  • Dependability: Harsh weather conditions can cause wooden doors to warp, crack, or splinter. Fibreglass doors mimic the appearance of natural wood – and keep their good looks regardless of the climate.

  • Insulation: Fibreglass doors tend to provide more insulation than wooden doors. This can save you money on electricity and heating costs.

  • Affordability: Wooden doors tend to be among the more expensive doors on the market. Therefore, selecting fibreglass can help reduce the cost of your home renovations.

  • Maintenance: With wooden doors, you have to regularly apply stain and varnish. However, fibreglass doors require little maintenance beyond regular care and cleaning.
