No glass garage door is made of 100% glass material. Instead, the door consists of glass panels (often tempered glass for safety, or a polycarbonate alternative) set into a metal framework, usually made of a steel or aluminum alloy. This metal framework allows for the articulation of the door as it rolls up and down.
Glass doors come with many different options that can change the overall appearance of your door, including:
- Texture ( frosted, mullioned, etc.)
- Tempering and safety options
Benefits of Glass Garage Doors
Glass garage doors are a more rare option, which is part of why they have such visual appeal. Here are some of the reasons that people choose glass for their garage door:
- Curb appeal: Glass doors give a sleek look that perfectly suits a modern exterior with clean lines and a luxurious finish.
- Natural light: Everyone wants more natural light in their home, and the garage is a great place to start.
- Low maintenance and high-quality materials: Glass doors appeal to many homeowners because they’re long-lasting, and the sleek beauty can stand up to weather, washings, and time, still looking as beautiful as the day they were installed.
Window Options for Alternate Materials
One downside to glass garage doors is that their R-Value (or insulation rating) is roughly nil. Although glass garage doors stand up well to winter storms, they won’t keep the chill out of your garage. If you prioritize temperature regulation in your garage space, we recommend looking into alternative materials for your garage door. Steel, vinyl, and aluminum doors all allow for effective insulation, while window panels still offer options for natural light.
However, in the end, nothing can quite replace the rich appearance of a glass garage door. Here at Expert Garage Doors, we provide experienced and precise installation that will keep your garage door operating safely and looking stunning for years to come.
