As automobiles were invented and came into consumer market, there became a need to safely store them. At the time, outbuildings were a type of unattached garages that kept the horse and buggy. The original outbuilding held the transportation and all transportation related tools. So, consumers naturally begin storing automobiles right next to their horse and buggy in the same outbuilding. High society was the main consumers in the early 1900's and they didn't appreciate their shiny new car smelling like horse manure. A new solution was necessary to keep them happy.
In terms of popularity and range of choices, wooden garage doors come next to steel garage doors. However, a wooden garage door is costlier than a steel garage door. Wooden garage doors need to be painted to prevent damage caused by water. They can withstand more wear and tear than steel garage doors. Wooden garage doors also have insulation options. If you want to have a customized garage door, then a wooden one will be the best bet.
In 1912, an architect created "a new type of outbuilding". The garage, which comes from the French word garer- to shelter or protect, was invented. The first garage door was essentially a barn door. It was a double door attached to the garage with strap hinges that opened outward. They had the appearance of a basic shed and were subjected to heavy wear and tear. The hinges got rusty and squeaked and the screws would bend and eventually fall out. Snow made it difficult to open and close the doors as well.
You may be used to installing doors in your house, but garage doors, whether they are automatic or manual, are a far more difficult task. Installing a garage could be dangerous as well, so it is strongly suggested to get a professional repairman to do your installation. These professionals will tell you that manual door installation is simpler compared to automatic door installation. It all depends on your preference. If you want heavy garage doors, this would require automatic operations as they would necessitate enormous strength to lift. Manually operated garages are a lot lighter.
