Residential Wood Garage Door Installation

We offer a variety of wood garage doors to meet the needs of any homeowner and complement any home, from rustic style to modern. The doors in our Traditional Wood and Signature® Carriage collections are attractive and durable. We combine our tried-and-true technical expertise with Amish craftsmanship to make a door that reflects beautiful handmade artistry but is built to stand the test of time!

Commercial Wood Garage Door Installation

Although not ideal for all types of commercial buildings, such as those that require fire-rated doors, wood doors work great for some offices and other buildings. Our wood garage doors are good insulators (energy-efficient) and can help you reduce your energy costs.

Whatever your garage door needs, we have you covered.

Wood Garage Door Repair

Garage doors are generally very reliable, but there may come a time when they need to be repaired or even fully replaced. You’ll probably need a repair or replacement if your home’s or building’s wood garage door:

  • Doesn’t open or only opens partially
  • Doesn’t close or only closes partially
  • Doesn’t operate when the motor runs
  • Makes a loud grinding noise when opening or closing
  • Has broken glass
  • Can be manually opened without using the remote control opener or keypad

Whatever the issue is — broken motor, springs and cables, rollers/track, etc. — the professionals at Overhead Door Co. of Indianapolis & Muncie will diagnose and fix it. We understand garage door repair is urgent and offer 24-hour emergency service. Overhead Door Co. of Indianapolis & Muncie can handle all your home and commercial wood garage door needs in the central Indiana area. We’ll do our best to make sure we are your first and last call!

Wood vs. Alternative Materials

Wood has been the hero of the home at every stage of architectural history. No other surface can compete with its charm and sophistication, so it’s every bit as trendy as it is timeless. Even so, no material is without its flaws. Wood is heavier than steel, so it’s harder to hang and maintain. Steel is cheaper, but it’s also prone to warping, rust, and cracks. Vinyl is rust-resistant and doesn’t rot in humid climates the way wood does. You can wrap your vinyl doors in faux wood textures, but nothing can compare with the aesthetic beauty of an authentic cherry or oak grain. Composite fiberglass has a higher R-value than wood, but the latter is easier to maintain. 

Pros and Cons of Wood

Wood is a “living” surface, evolving with age. It’s eco-friendly and sustainable, particularly if you choose reclaimed or bamboo doors. Its durability is difficult to match, and it remains one of the best insulators in the industry. It is, of course, not perfect. It’s demanding in terms of maintenance, requiring a steady routine of nourishment and protection. It absorbs moisture and eventually rots if neglected and poorly coated. Stains and paints might require fresh coatings every few years. Sagging may also occur, but that’s easy to prevent through routine maintenance. It can be customized for any size and shape, so it offers enough aesthetic variety to overwhelm even the fussiest of homeowners. In general, wood is a commitment, but if you treat your wooden garage door well, it will repay you with beauty, security, and timeless appeal.


Are wooden garage doors more expensive?

Wood has developed a reputation for being the most expensive garage door option on the market, but if you choose well, you can find competitive pricing. Bamboo, for example, is as cost-effective as it is beautiful. Wood’s life span needs to be accounted for, too. You can expect 15 to 20 years of use out of a wooden garage door — the same as steel.

Are wood garage doors worth it?

Think of wood as an investment. It will reward you with decades of beauty and dent-free durability. It never goes out of fashion, so your curb appeal will be as strong in 20 years’ time as it is today. Wood’s unique, handsome looks and powerful insulation will add to your property inside and out. Wood is safe and natural, and it doesn’t emit toxic fumes. It’s a great chameleon, transforming with your choice of stain and varnish.
