    Here are different types of wood used for manufacturing garage doors:

    Redwood - Redwood is the high end of wooden garage doors. These doors are built with layers of wood to reduce the risk of warping from heat and water.

    Cedar - Cedar is a wood with natural resistance to moisture, rot, decay and insects. It comes in red and white although it may be stained to suit the exterior. 

    Plywood - Plywood garage door is the most basic and inexpensive type of wooden door.



    If I were you, i would go with rosewood garage door.
