Looking for a classy, renewed look for your home’s exterior? Consider upgrading to a faux wood door or including one as part of your home renovation project. Faux wood garage doors look like genuine wood, but are actually made of steel.  That way, you get all of the gorgeous texture and look of wood without having to deal with the maintenance and upkeep that comes with real wood garage doors.  

If you are split between wanting the look and luxury of a wood door, but don’t have the budget or time for the upkeep of wood, then a faux wooden door is your answer.

Genuine wood doors are notoriously difficult to maintain because they need regular maintenance including a new coat of paint or stain and sanding. You’ll have to keep an eye on warping, cracks, rot or at the very least color fading as well.

Benefits of a Faux Wooden Garage Door

Durability

Amarr’s doors are made with steel or aluminum and are able to maintain their integrity through harsh storms, particularly wet seasons and severe weather. In the summertime, steel doors can withstand humidity and extreme meteorological conditions, making them a great choice no matter where you live. Faux wood doors will easily keep your home safe and comfortable.

Pest Free

As long as you maintain the balance and mechanics of your steel wood-like door, you won’t have to worry about pests entering your home through your garage. With a wood door, it’s not uncommon for rodents to chew through small corners of a garage.

Easy Maintenance

Faux wood doors are insulated and made of steel meaning they’re easy to maintain. You won’t have to worry about moisture seeping into your garage unlike if it were a wood door. Furthermore, surface-level maintenance is fairly easy and straightforward. After a freezing, salted winter, for example, you’ll only have to hose off the door or grab a sponge and soap to spruce up the appearance.
