Made of Wood
The cheapest material for making doors is the tried and tested wood. And there are garage doors made from this material. There are several popular types of wood used for garage doors such as Mahogany, Douglas-Fir and the all-around plywood. Plywood is fairly common and possibly the most affordable of the wood types for your garage door. If you had a bigger budget in mind then have a Mahogany garage door. This type of wood is very durable and heavy compared to plywood and Douglas-Fir.
Simple and Cost-Efficient
Designs No one wants a bland door. But there is no need to spend a fortune for intricate wooden designs carved by master artisans. Simple and cost-efficient designs are a must on cheap garage doors. Go for the long panel on the body and plain long top windows. They may not be eye-catching but these are all that you need for the outer part of your garage door. The good news is that this is not the only low cost design for a garage door made of wood. You can also consider vertical panel layout and short glass panel windows. This design is still affordable despite the additional cost.
Simple Open-Close Mechanism
If you are physically fit then opening and closing the garage door with your bare hands is not a problem. This is your cheapest option on how your garage door functions. But if you want convenience where you can open your garage while in your car then consider budget garage door openers. There are several brands available such as Craftsman and Chamberlain. Cheap garage doors do not need extremely hi-tech contraptions just to open and close.
Wooden doors need finishes that will really protect them from the weather. But you do not need to have very complicated finishing on your garage door. Simple yet efficient paints will go a long way. Just remember that wooden garage doors require more maintenance in this department. But do not consider this as a negative. Maintenance cost is dealt with easily when you save for them.
Cheap garage doors are the ones that are just big enough to cover the garage opening for one car. No need for grand doors if your garage is not that big. But if you also do not need a big garage then go for one that is just big enough for a car. And having a spacious garage does not mean you need a large door. So plan your garage carefully for ergonomic efficiently without spending a fortune.
