Steel doors are the strongest and most durable, whereas high density polyethylene doors never dent, rust or fade and do not require to be repainted. Fiberglass doors can also be an option if you want some natural light to pass through as these materials are translucent and also maintenance free. Conventional wooden doors would well fit into your budget and requirements but the low initial cost might be deceiving as the maintenance cost is relatively higher than the other options; wooden doors require regular check ups for warps and rotting.

In response to the inherently dangerous old style garage spring issues as above, a newer and safer system for opening the overhead garage door was created. The idea was to transfer the load or weight of the door via a cable and pulley system to a vertical rod now equipped with a torsion (twisted) spring. This type of spring is installed with specialty hardware and bolts to a fixed plate at one end, while the entire spring is installed around a horizontal pipe. This load balancing device is normally installed directly over the header of the garage opening. Using appropriate cables, connectors and pulleys, the weight of the garage door is transferred into the torsion spring system. The difference between the old style stretched spring and the newer torsion spring is the way that the spring energy is stored. With the old style stretched spring, the energy is stored and released by pulling on the spring or returning the spring to its un-stretched condition.
