A garage door is an investment for your home as it can help secure your vehicles, properties and most importantly your loved ones from intruders. It can also enhance the appearance, as well as increase the value of your house. There are various factors to take into consideration when choosing the right door and here are some of them.
• Size. According to our experienced technicians, this is the first thing that you should consider when selecting a door. The door should fit perfectly on the opening of the garage. It would be a huge inconvenience if the door does not fit. Get an accurate measurement to make the installation faster and easier.
• Type. There are different types of garage doors to choose from including roll up, side hinged and sliding doors. Roll up doors goes up and rolls when opened. As the term suggests, sliding doors slide on the side when opened. Side hinged doors on the other hand swings outwards when you open it, which means that you would need enough space in front of the garage.
• Material. These doors come in different materials such as wood, steel, aluminum and glass. Wood doors are good for insulating the garage, but they are high maintenance and they are also prone to breaking and discoloration. Steel is cheaper and sturdier but it’s not a good insulator. Aluminum is the cheapest but it may not last that long. Glass on the other hand is corrosion free and it looks the most modern but it’s expensive and could easily break.
• Insulation. While some of the door materials are not good insulators like steel, you can find those that come with insulation. This may be an added cost, but it can help you save several dollars on your energy bill in the long run.
You should also consider your budget when choosing a door. Depending on their size, style and material made, these doors come in varying prices. Shop around to find the best door for you at the most reasonable price.
