Seeking advice on faux wood garage doors

X-posting in home building forum.

I'd like to replace my aluminum garage doors with wood-look doors. We get direct Western sun and live in the humid South, so real wood isn't an option for maintenance reasons.

I'm wondering if anyone can give advice/input/opinions on the 2 options I'm considering:

Fatezzi Faux Wood doors (made of a high density polymer that looks/feels like wood, not a plastic type material):


Artisan Rhapsody doors, which are made with a wood composite facing:

The samples of both look beautiful.

I just don't know how to go about deciding which is a better/more durable door, which option would hold up better with our strong Western sun and high humidity.

Any advice/experience that others could share would be greatly appreciated!!
