When the decision comes to choosing the right garage door for your home, it is important to consider factors such as reliability, durability, and safety. Having a reliable garage door is an essential part of any home, offering security, and ease of access to your vehicle and other valuable items stored within the garage. 

A garage door’s overall reliability depends on a few factors. These include: the door’s style, the material used to make it, and the method of construction. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at each of these factors and discuss some of the most reliable types of garage doors on the market. 

The style of the garage door: 

When it comes to garage door styles, there are several options to choose from. The most popular styles Canadoor Garage Doors offers include traditional, classic steel garage doors, carriage garage doors, and modern garage doors. In terms of durability, the classic steel garage door is considered the most durable and reliable. It also touts a high degree of reliability due to its low maintenance requirements. New steel garage doors are made of durable materials that can withstand years of wear and tear, and their new locking systems and openers will make it even easier than ever for you to open and close them while keeping intruders out.

Number of layers:

Generally, garage doors have 1 to 3 layers. Single-layer garage doors are made from a single layer of steel, while double-layer garage doors are made from two layers of steel with insulation in between. 

Double-layer garage doors are considered more reliable than single-layer doors because they offer better insulation, which helps to keep the garage temperature normal and prevent excess heat loss. Double-layer garage doors are also thicker and stronger than single-layer garage doors making them more resistant to dents, scratches, and other types of damage. 

A three-layer garage doors is a premium option featuring two layers of steel with insulation in between. This type of garage door is typically more expensive than a 1 or 2 layer garage door, but offers even better thermal insulation, noise reduction, and durability.
