There is a definite reason why people love the look of a wooden garage door. They are beautiful, and they match a wide array of home styles. However, they can also be very expensive and the upkeep necessary can be very daunting. Manufacturers have recognized this problem, and have come up with some phenomenal steel doors that emulate the look and class of a wood door. One company that is excelling in the faux wood garage door game right now is CHI. CHI has come out with the Accents collection which includes their Woodtones and Plank doors.
The Woodtones are stamped steel doors with a rustic barn look that can be accentuated with optional windows and decorative hardware. They are warm and inviting, but also strong and functional. The fact that CHI are able to achieve this look with a stamped steel rather than multiple layers of wood and composite materials allow them to keep the cost low.
The second division of the Accents collection is the Plank doors. When anyone looks at a plank door all they can think of is how sleek it is. The beautiful grains of the different wood colors; available in cedar, dark oak, light oak, mahogany, and newly added driftwood are front and center. The door itself is micro-grooved which gives it a simple, modern feel. It can easily transform any home from BLAH to WOW. Best of all, these doors are going to stand the test of time both in appearance and durability. The steel is much more resilient against the elements and other factors that can destroy a wooden door.
