Aluminum Capping

What is Aluminum Capping?

Aluminum capping is when the exterior wooden frame is coated in a thin aluminum sheet. Many homeowners now are choosing aluminum capping for their garages, and it is also commonly done to window and door frames. It has many advantages, both aesthetically and performance wise that make it so appealing and worthy of the investment.

Aluminum capping can look amazing when it is installed correctly. This is not a DIY, however. It can be a tricky process that requires expertise. The aluminum needs to be very carefully cut and formed properly to fit exactly over the existing wooden frame. Any installation that is not done perfectly can result in it looking quite unattractive.

6 Reasons for Aluminum Capping

Aluminum capping has huge benefits. Not only does it look great, but it will cut down on maintenance. When you purchase a home there are many things that require on-going maintenance. It can seem as though it is never ending! You can take care of one of these areas by installing aluminum capping on your garage door frame. Aluminum capping can last up to 50 years!

We have compiled a list for you as to why aluminum capping is a wonderful option to consider for your home.

1. no maintenance

What can be better than not having to worry about maintenance? With aluminum capping over your garage door frame, you no longer need to worry about split or cracking wood. There is also no need for stripping, sanding and restaining or painting your wooden frame every few years to keep it looking fresh. All that is ever needed is a quick wash with detergent and water when it gets dirty to keep it looking as good as new!

2. Wooden Frames will last longer

With a proper installation, the aluminum will protect the wooden frame of your garage door. When sealed correctly, the wooden frame will not be exposed to harsh elements such as rain and snow which can cause it to rot or become moldy. This will greatly extend its lifespan.

3. Improves homes exterior aesthetics

Your garage door is most likely the most noticeable feature on the exterior of your home. Aluminum capping will give your garage door a shiny, clean, seamless look that will largely increase the aesthetic appeal.

4. variety of colours

Aluminum capping comes in several colours. We offer 12 colours for you to choose from to achieve the look you want. You can also mix and match colours. You can choose a colour different from your garage door to get your desired look and get creative!

5. No rusting or fading

Aluminum is a very durable and resilient material. With our high-quality aluminum sheeting, there is no need for worry over rust and fading. Aluminum capping can last for decades before you even need to consider replacement.

6. Energy Efficient

When sealed correctly, aluminum capping will create a weather-resistant barrier, protecting the inside of the garage from hot or cold air entering. If you use heating in your garage in the winter or have a room located above your garage, this is extremely beneficial. You will see a difference with your energy efficiency.
