If you like wooden furnishings, then you’ll love Biowood. It’s new to the Garage Door field but gaining popularity very quickly. Durable and strong, Biowood is a wood-plastic composite architectural product which is low maintenance and environmentally friendly and we offer this material for garage doors at C&M Garage Doors. So now, you can now enjoy a garage door with the beautiful look of natural timber while knowing you’re doing something better for the environment, and it comes with plenty of additional benefits. What’s not to love!
What exactly is Biowood and why are so many people getting excited about? Created from a combination of natural cellulose fibre from plantation-harvested timber and recycled resin and plastics, Biowood is lightweight and low-maintenance. The wood-plastic composite is strong and durable and has been proven to withstand the harsh and varied climate in Australia. It’s especially excellent for exterior applications, such as garage doors due to its numerous structural benefits and longevity.
Let’s take a look at those benefits…it’s a lengthy list!
Maintain the Natural Timber look
If you want something different from a traditional metal garage door, Biowood, being a wood-plastic composite, is a great choice! Biowood is largely made from natural wood, leaving you with a product that looks exactly like solid timber but requires far less maintenance.
Mould and Mildew Resistant
Biowood is mould and mildew resistant which means it can be used for a wide range of application in buildings – perfect for exteriors like your garage door.
Suitable for Salt Spray Environments
Biowood is suitable salt spray environments, which is especially attractive in the Northern Rivers as we all live so close to the coast. Salt can be extremely corrosive and rusts materials quickly, especially if they are constantly exposed to it. Materials won’t last long if they haven’t been made for the harsh conditions of coastal living.
What’s amazing, is the bushfire resistant quality of Biowood, which is also very attractive to home owners in the Northern Rivers region, particularly after last year’s devastating bushfire season.
Termites don’t usually attack garage doors as normally, but don’t worry about this timber composite. Biowood, provides great peace of mind as the material is termite resistant. Again, this makes Biowood an excellent choice in exterior applications.
Water Resistant and Protected sun exposure
This product is also water resistant (less than 0.05% water absorption) and does not bleach – it’s UV stable under normal environmental conditions, even in full sun.
All in all, Biowood is a highly versatile material that has proven to stand the test of time against Australia’s harsh weather conditions in both residential and commercial applications, making it a perfect choice for your home and for businesses too.

These are all sleek, modern colours for a garage door, suited to any home going for this look and feel (you can see the colours in the image below). The natural timber look of Spotted Gum pairs very well with dark tones and contrasts beautifully against greenery. The Black Japan colour is, as the name suggests, quite dark and looks very smart complimenting natural timber finishings. Weatherwood is more of a dark grey, working perfectly with blues, whites and lighter greys – a common colour palette for many coastal homes.
