Garage doors made from real wood always look good when they are new, but it has a lot of maintenance, and if you do not put in the necessary work, time and money, it won’t look good for long.
Garage doors with natural finishes last a long time, at least a few years, before a new coat of varnish is needed. If you do not varnish the door in time, it will be a lot more work – because you will have to sand it off, and start over, which is not only time-consuming, but also costs a lot of money.
Rather invest in an embossed steel with a faux wooden finish. They look a lot like wood, and needs a lot less maintenance.
