"Vinyl is very cost effective, especially for how durable and long lasting the material is.
Vinyl is also very convenient when it comes to maintain your garage door. Vinyl is made from a composite of different materials and the composite is all the same color which means color touch ups will not be necessary. Vinyl also cannot rust.
Vinyl is a very durable material that is resistant to splitting and splintering. When it comes to weather resistance Vinyl is very durable and can withstand extreme temperatures on both the hot and cold ends of the temperature spectrum"

"Aluminum is a natural element resistant to rust and any corrosion. As a metal, steel must have inclusions to provide this protection, but aluminum forms a layer that prevents oxidation. Of course, this coating won't last forever, but it improves the longevity of your garage door if you live around salt and moisture."
