Fiberglass garage doors combine strength and design that are molded and bonded with durable steel. These doors are similar to traditional steel doors as the base of the door is manufactured with steel and finished with a fiberglass coating. Fiberglass garage doors are a perfect choice for homeowners who seek the look of wood garage doors without the cracking, warping, or rotting that comes with them. Fiberglass garage doors have a wide range of customization options such as insulation to keep heating and cooling costs low.

Double-layer fiberglass garage doors are manufactured with two layers of fiberglass and an added layer of insulation making this door more energy efficient than the single-layer fiberglass garage door.
Triple-layer fiberglass garage doors offers the highest level of energy efficiency as compared to single and double layer fiberglass garage doors. Triple-layer fiberglass garage doors are manufactured with alternating fiberglass and insulation.
