My experience with steel doors is that they are very reactive to their environment. In the winter the outside skin will contract enough to cause the door to warp. It even does it with insulated steel doors. Experience has also taught me not to paint them dark colors if they will be in direct sun, the opposite effect happens. I had them warp enough, on an office building, to bind the panic hardware so in the afternoon when the sun was hittng them, the doors wouldn't open.
