A new garage door can change the entire look of your home, and sometimes the choices can be overwhelming. When you use a professional garage door installation service, the technician can help you understand the types of doors available, how they operate, and how energy efficient they are.
How often you use your garage may help determine your next garage door installation. If the garage is used for storage, not opened on a daily basis, and separated from the house, you may decide on a simple, plain design. However, since most garage doors take up a large portion of the curb appeal for your home, consider what it looks like from the street.
Overhead doors and carriage house doors seem to be the most popular, and they are available in a variety of sizes, styles, and colors. Door selections can include patterns, windows, hardware choices, and of course, matching or complimentary colors to your home.
Many years ago, the only way to open a garage door was to haul it up manually. Thank goodness for automation – the ease and safety that it brings to your garage! Your garage door installation specialist can help you determine the best opener model and size for your new garage door. Check for a manufacturer’s warranty, and understand fully how it operates.
Finally, not all garage doors are built the same. Most garage doors are built with some type of insulation, and depending on your climate and weather conditions, you could save energy costs in selecting the correct type of insulation factor for your new garage door. If your garage is heated and you use it on a regular basis, you may want to consider a door that is constructed with better insulation methods.
