Aluminum is the perfect material for garage doors for a huge number of reasons.

As a garage door material, Aluminium is both strong and durable, and is far lighter than steel and other metals. While these properties have both their good and bad sides, you’ll see why this metal is so popular. Here are the major reasons why you should choose aluminium garage doors for your home.

3 Main Advantages of Aluminum Garage Doors

Probably the biggest advantage of aluminium is it's light weight. Due to this weight-saving, it makes it far easier to install aluminium garage doors wherever you are in the UK. Also, because there is less weight and less strain on the roller and tracks, the lifespan of the entire system and garage is extended. In addition, with the chances of the system failing greatly reduced, aluminium roller doors are far safer and more reliable.

Aluminum is an element naturally resistant to rust and any corrosion. As a metal, steel must have inclusions that provide this protection, but aluminum forms a layer that keeps out oxidation. Of course, this layer won't last forever, but improves the longevity of the garage door if you live around salt and moisture.

Given it’s softer than steel, aluminium is easy to design and emboss, providing extra aesthetics for your home. This feature also allows aluminium to be recycled, boosting it's environmentally friendly attributes.
