Modern Steel™ Garage Doors: The Perfect Addition to Your Home

 – By


Your garage door is a significant part of your home's exterior and plays a crucial role in your curb appeal. Modern Steel™ garage doors offer a wide variety of options to suit your taste and your home's appearance. Whether you have a mid-century modern home, contemporary, or somewhere in between, these beautiful and durable steel-panel garage doors will add charm to your home's exterior. In this blog post, we'll explore the construction and design options available, so you can make an informed decision when selecting your new garage door.

Construction Overview

Modern Steel™ garage doors are built to last, with durable materials designed to withstand harsh weather conditions. The insulation options help regulate the temperature in your garage, keeping it warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The tough coating system protects the steel skins from damage, ensuring your garage door looks great for years to come.

Modern Steel™ garage doors come in three-layer, two-layer, or one-layer steel and insulation construction options. The insulation options include 2" or 1-3/8" Intellicore® polyurethane, 2", 1-3/8", 1-5/16" polystyrene. The steel skins are protected by a tough, layered coating system, which includes a hot-dipped galvanized layer and baked-on primer and topcoat.

For high wind load applications, the WINDCODE® door reinforcement product is available. This product reinforces the door and helps prevent wind damage.

Design Overview

Modern Steel™ garage doors are available in two different design options: flush or grooved steel panel. Featuring textures like stucco or woodgrain (depending on model, color, and window style), there are ways to mix and match so you can choose the one that best suits your home's style. You can see the chart here for more details.

There are 15 factory finish options available, including Ultra-Grain®, Lustra™, and the NEW Ultra-Grain Plank wood-look finishes. These finishes give you the option to match your garage door to your home's exterior or create a unique look that stands out.

Modern Steel™ garage doors also offer many glass and window size options, including insulated, frosted, slim, long, and short designs. You can choose the size and shape that fits your home's style and needs. Optional window grilles can be removed for easy cleaning, ensuring your garage door always looks its best.
