You can expect unmatched craftsmanship with NationServe wooden garage doors but they do require some maintenance and upkeep. To maintain your wooden doors’ natural beauty, it’s essential to regularly clean and inspect your doors—particularly if you live in a hot climate. Warm weather or dramatic weather changes can cause damage to wooden doors. Common things to look out for include paint peeling and in some instances, warping of the wood itself.

If you are looking for an alternative to natural wood, NationServe sells and installs a variety of garage doors in Charlotte, Cincinnati, Albuquerque, Houston and other cities around the United States. Keep reading to learn about the varieties of garage doors that are available and the advantages of each.


Vinyl garage doors are widely considered to be “kid-proof.” Vinyl doors are incredibly resilient and impervious to all sorts of damage to which traditional wooden doors can be susceptible. Vinyl doors are practically impossible to dent and effortlessly wipe clean with just a damp cloth. Many homeowners’ garages do double duty, housing not only vehicles but kids bikes, sports equipment or even mini-workshops. With all this traffic, the possibility of accidental bumps and scrapes increases, as can damage to doors. While construction is similar to other composite materials, vinyl doors tend to be significantly more durable and more resistant to dirt (which means you won’t have to hose it down nearly as much as other materials). If you have a family or live in a warm dusty climate, like Houston or Albuquerque, opting for a vinyl garage door could be a better choice than a traditional wooden door.


Why not opt for a much tougher and more durable option for your garage door? Steel can be a great choice and a variety of designs are possible. You can even double or triple up on the layers you use, depending on how durable you’d like to make your door. You’ll spend less time and effort on maintenance and have a door that will truly stand the test of time. Steel garage doors also offer far greater security than other types of doors and with the right maintenance, can last a lifetime. What’s more, steel doors are attractive too. While the primary function of steel doors is to provide durability, there is a massive variety of beautiful designs to choose from. When you choose a steel door from NationServe, you don’t have to sacrifice your home’s aesthetics for a door that’s built to last, but not appealing to behold.
