old garage needs new door and opener

I have a 1-car detached garage, about 50 years old. It's in good shape, wood frame, clapboard siding (needs scraping and painting) but really needs a new overhead door, and I want to add an opener. I want to replace it with something similar to what is there now, a panel door with 4 windows. I live in long-winter country. What are your experiences with vinyl or steel doors? Also, opinions on chain, belt, or screw type door openers?
Thanks for your help.

a metal door for sure, insulated to help w/ noise & strength. as to openers, i dont know, get one w/ a good warrenty, 1/2 hp. hope this helps.
