What do the steel gauge numbers on a garage door mean?
A steel gauge indicates the thickness and strength of the steel used to manufacture your garage door. A lower steel gauge number indicates a thicker steel which is also stronger. In this case, lower is better.
However, some garage doors have two thinner gauge skins with an insulated core between them. Such an insulated door can be stronger than one made of a single skin of thicker gauge steel.
What about painting my garage door?
It all depends on the materials used to manufacture your garage door.
For steel garage doors, you can paint them using a high-quality exterior latex paint. But there is a particular process to painting a steel garage door so we advise you to contact Overhead Door & The Door Store before starting that DIY project.
As a contrast, a wood garage door must come from the supplier painted or stained prior to installation. After installation, you may need to paint or treat your wood garage door every couple of years to keep it from weathering.
