Buying a Garage Door

Garage Door Options

A host of options are available through most garage door manufacturers. You can order window sections for a decorative accent and to add daylight to a dark garage. You can choose standard single glazed or, for insulated doors, dual glazed. Some doors have snap-in decorative frames.

Vinyl Garage Doors

01

Vinyl Garage doors are very popular garage doors for a reason. They are virtually indestructible, require zero maintenance and will look great for years. Vinyl garage doors don’t rust, rot, peel, or warp and are nearly “undentable”. This may be the very last door you ever need to put on your home. They come ready to install, no need to paint or stain and are very well insulated.

Steel Garage Doors

02

Steel is the most popular material used for garage doors today because of its durability. Steel will look great forever and is virtually maintenance-free. It also has the advantage of being the least expensive garage door you can buy. If you’re looking to add even more curb appeal, a Steel Door in Carriage Style like the one pictured, might be just what you’re looking for…

Wood Carriage House Doors

03

Radically beautify your home with wood carriage house doors. These doors increase the curb appeal of your home so much that real estate studies have shown they increase the value of your house. But that’s not the real reason to have them… the real reason is just how much you’ll love the way the exterior of your home looks… and if the neighbors are a little jealous, well, that just can’t be helped.

Custom Garage Doors

04

In addition to the above styles, you may also consider doors that are unique and offer options to match your home’s design. These doors can reflect styles from the old world doors, with decorative hand-forged hardware and architectural glass options. They are also available in options such as such as Swing UpSwing OutAccordion and Bifold. Custom garage doors offer many architectural styles to complement your home’s design.

2.Warranty – How Well Do I Understand It?

Nearly every garage door comes with a warranty of some kind. Many companies claim they have a lifetime warranty but don’t cover everything. Garage doors have many parts: rollers, cables, springs, door panels, etc. Find out what parts the warranty covers. When you read the fine print, you may find that the warranty does not cover warping, splitting, cracking, denting, or rusting and then limits parts to one year. When shopping you want to make sure you are comparing apples to apples.

3: Decide Which Garage Door Company to Buy From?
