Wooden Garage Doors

Dallas Garage Door Experts

 

Wooden Garage doors are a preferred choice of many because of its natural look and affordability.  The easiest to build and most affordable type of door is a tilt-up wood door. In many cases, it can be built right in the driveway by applying a skin of exterior plywood—usually 3/8 inch thick—to a frame of Douglas fir, spruce, or a similar softwood. Or, the frame and plywood can be covered with siding to match the house.

 

Sections of roll-up wood doors may have either flush or panel construction. Flush sections are made by fastening a plywood panel over a wooden frame, like a small version of the flush door described above. For panel doors, manufacturers fit several separate, rectangular panels into a wooden frame. The skeletal framework is built of fir or some other common softwood; panels are made from a variety of materials.

 

Panels for a door meant to be painted may be flat surfaces of plywood or hardboard, or they may be three-dimensional raised or recessed panels.

 

Appearance-grade hardwood doors—those meant to be stained rather than painted—have solid-wood panel inserts. These doors may be all cedar, redwood, or may have softwood frames with oak, mahogany, or other hardwood panels. When buying one of these, be sure to find out whether the panels are made from a single, solid piece or from several widths edge-glued together (since the joint between glued-up lengths may show).
