Should I avoid a dark colour if the door is exposed to direct sunlight for prolonged periods?

Dark colours should be avoided for doors with a sunny aspect. Dark colours will absorb heat from the sun’s rays that can result in differential expansion and bowing of door panels. This can cause binding of the door during operation. The door panels should return to shape when the door cools, however, under prolonged conditions, the deflection may remain.

How will my garage door’s colour be affected by UV exposure and are dark colours suitable for garages with a sunny aspect?
