Why True Wood Garage Doors Win Over Woodgrain Finishes

April 11, 2019

In the world of wood garage doors, you have two options:

  1. True wood doors
  2. Woodgrain finishes

True wood doors are made of pure wood, while doors with woodgrain finishes are generally made of some type of metal (aluminum, steel, etc.), and finished in a way that mimics the look of a real wooden garage door.

Whether you are a home designer hired to complete a design on a new custom garage door, or a homeowner looking for a unique new addition to your home, there are many reasons why you should absolutely choose a real wooden door over a door with a woodgrain finish.

The Details Don’t Lie

Nothing beats the appeal and genuine appearance of a garage door made of the best wood on the market. Even the untrained eye can see a faux-wood door when looking at a home from the street. True wooden doors have a unique aesthetic that adds an aura of authenticity and timelessness to any home. Whether you choose to design a classic or modern garage door, nothing beats the beautiful aesthetic of a true wooden door.

Anyone who gets close enough to a wooden garage door will also experience its beauty upon closer inspection. Natural wood has a fantastic organic grain pattern that adds a gorgeous element of texture and appearance that simply cannot be replicated with the patterns placed on faux wood doors.

Customization Options

Very few elements on faux-wood doors are customizable. Designers and homeowners can choose color along with a few simple patterns and designs on the metal door. With a real wood garage door, the customization options are limitless. This is because every wooden garage door, at least at Cambek Designer Doors, is built from scratch. This means you are able to choose everything from unique shapes, patterns and a myriad of other custom garage door features to your design. Real wood can be shaped in ways that metal cannot, and the difference between the two is truly night and day when it comes to the uniqueness and beauty of your door.

You Don’t Have to Sacrifice Strength

There is a common misconception that wood garage doors are fragile; however, this is simply untrue. Wood garage doors are capable of withstanding the elements, and there are hurricane-rated doors available for houses in storm-ridden areas. Whether a house is located on the coast, where hurricanes are common, or in the Midwest, doors are subject to brutal winters and tornado season, your wooden door will withstand what mother nature brings its way.
