Find the perfect garage door
Steel doors have many advantages over wood doors. In the first place, wood doors are not painted or stained by the maker. That is why they must be skillfully painted or stained before being installed. Moreover, a wood door must be repainted from time to time to maintain its protection from the elements. Even if you take care of your door correctly, it will eventually absorb moisture and need to be replaced. Compare this to steel doors, especially those insulated with polyurethane foam, that last much longer, and require little upkeep. Due to the fact that the polyurethane foam fills the interior envelope of the door, no moisture can infiltrate, thus stopping your door from rusting. In addition, steel doors are pre-painted in a choice of various colors. Most pre-painted doors use 5-layer baked-on polyester paint, a material that forms a solid layer and is known for its durability. Baked-on paint lasts a long time and is more weatherproof than traditionally-applied paint, which is why we recommend this application for optimal results. If you prefer a color other than those provided by the manufacturer, doors can be easily repainted to your liking, which is a service offered at Door Systems Metro Boston in the Cambridge, MA area.
