What type of wooden garage doors is best?

Good morning, I'm thinking of installing some new wooden doors at my garage since I hate the aluminium door I have at the moment. Could you give me some ideas and tips, especially about the type of wood and the type of opening? Thank you.

I love wooden doors, even if they are for a garage. I think they have a great appeal and they perfectly blend in with the natural environment. Anyway, be aware that wooden doors are much more expensive than aluminium or steel doors. And they are also much heavier! AS to wood, it is very important to choose a good quality material, able to resist to time and weather, but its maintenance is important as well (for instance you should oil the door regularly). Today, there are many cheep products imported from china. I would not recommend them since what you safe today, you will spend to morrow.

I can recommend you insulated wooden doors which are a very good choice for saving energy but that I suggest to all those who, like me, spend a long time in my garage and I need to keep a the environment warm in winter and cool in summer. Moreover insulated doors reduce noise. Those in the picture are the doors I have chosen for my garage.

If you don't want to spend a lot of money (not always people can afford a top quality door) I you should buy simple painted wood doors with flat hardboard panels. On the contrary, you can opt for stain-grade wood doors which cost much more but are definitely of very high quality. And if you like doing thinks yourself (I love DIY) watch this video and follow the instructions.
