Steel doors work for climates that have bad weather conditions such as regular thunderstorms or strong winds. The surface of steel doors is often coated with a protective layer that can withstand moisture, however high heat or direct sunlight can cause the door to get extremely hot as steel is a conductor of heat. Automated doors can be a wonderful feature in your house. Nowadays, not only shopping centres have them but also many houses. There are pros and cons of this specific feature that everyone has to consider before getting one installed.
If you have the extra space and do not mind going out into the weather to get to the house choose a detached garage. The extra space between the house and garage can be used for a patio or even a kitchen garden. From the garage to the home you could also build a nice aesthetically walkway. You will also need to decide if you want a one or two car garage and if you need extra room for storage. If you choose a simple one-car garage, a door company states that you will need a basic space of 12 feet by 24 feet. If you choose a two-car garage you will need to add another 9 feet by 18 feet of space for that extra car. You will need this much space so you can open the doors without scratching or damaging the car doors.
Unless you have ordered a pre-primed door, you will have to apply a stain-blocking primer – ideally two coats – to provide a base for the rest of your paint work. Pay special attention to the top and bottom of the door, which are particularly vulnerable to water penetration. Apply primer equally all over on both sides, not forgetting the cut-out holes for hardware. This will seal the timber and keep incoming moisture to a minimum, preventing swelling (which can make the door stick on the frame). Conversely, it will also help stop the door from drying out and shrinking in hot weather.
