The Timber Look Garage Door was created as a low maintenance alternative to the Cedar Counterpart. While the Cedar door is one of the most popular designs in New Zealand with its classic style, the natural properties of cedar leave potential for it to change visually throughout its lifecycle. Continued Staining or Painting throughout the lifecycle are great preventative measures however natural cedar is prone to rot, warp, shrinkage, or cracking due to the external environment. These preventative measures also come with a cost, and failure to maintain these in due course and to the right standard can weaken the door.
The timber look TGV door replicates the painted “board-style” timber aesthetic, however by delivering this in Powdercoated Aluminium this removes the need for aesthetic maintenance.
In order to replicate a painted garage door this would be delivered with a standard Powdercoat option which holds a 10, 15, or 20 year Powdercoat Warranty depending on the selection. Meanwhile to replicate a stained or oiled timber door this would be finished in a Metwood Powdercoat which holds a 25 Year Powdercoat Warranty.
As all Prestige Garage Doors are custom made this allows access to a large range of timber look styles. Firstly Cedar TGV and Shiplap are replicated using Aluminium TGV style. In addition traditional Ply & Batten style can be replicated as an Aluminium Board & Batten. Many other styles such as louvre can also be replicated using a range of aluminium profiles and finishes.
The timber look TG&V door is sought after due to the high level of customisation options. Windows can be selected in either a traditional plainlite or colonial style. Borders and overlying battens can also be used to add individuality. The combination of both can be used to create a tradition style which has long been seen with timber in the New Zealand market.
