Garage Doors Are Available In:
Steel Garage Doors are the most popular door. Steel is the most widely used material for garage doors today because of its durability.
Steel will look great forever and is just about maintenance-free.
Additionally, they have the advantage of being the least expensive garage door you can buy.
If you're looking to add even more appeal to your home, a Steel Door in Carriage Style like the one to the left might be just what you're looking for...
Wood Carriage House Doors 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 most important 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 Wood has a natural beauty, is very versatile, and operates quietly. It may be painted or stained and is available in a wide price range.
If you choose a wood door, you should plan to spend some time maintaining it.
Wood garage doors can be fully customized to your needs. Custom garage doors are available in any size and type of wood; including cedar, hemlock & mahogany.
Wood-Composite Garage Doors are in the price range between steel & vinyl. They come primed and ready to paint with a limited lifetime warranty. People buy wood-composite primarily for 3 reasons: the main reason is that because it needs to be painted it is easily customized to fit into your home's color scheme. The second is that once it is painted it does not require the maintenance a wood door will. Nor will it crack, split, swell or warp like wood can. And lastly, this environmentally friendly door is made mostly from recycled material so it is the "greenest of garage doors."
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 old world doors, with decorative hand-forged hardware and architectural glass options. And use beautiful wood species such as mahogany, hemlock and cedar; or you may choose contemporary and modern styles in materials such as copper, aluminum or glass. 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 really cover everything. Garage doors have lots of parts: rollers, cables, springs, door panels, etc. Make sure the warranty covers those parts. When you read the fine print, you may also find that the warranty does not cover warping, splitting, cracking, denting, or rusting. It also may limit parts to one year. When shopping you want to make sure you are comparing apples to apples.
# 3 - Choose the Best Company to Use
Unfortunately, the garage door industry is under-regulated, so there are many fly-by-night companies that are under-insured or not insured at all and will not be around to fulfill their warranties or back up their work.. Before choosing a garage door company, do some research and ensure the company you hire:
- Carries all necessary insurance; don't hire without insurance including workman's comp. You're risking your financial well-being.
- Provides warranties on both materials and labor of your garage door.
- Has Uniformed Technicians In Clean Trucks with their logo painted on the side. Fly-by-night companies need to change their name every few month and so will not invest in these things.
- Is courteous and professional looking and acting.
- Will supply references from previous customers when asked.
- Is a member of The Better Business Bureau & International Door Association (IDA)
Choose a company that provides training for their technicians. The best way to avoid problems is to never have them and proper training goes a long way. Every year, there are more accidents related to garage doors than to lawn mowers and snow blowers combined. You can avoid future garage door accidents when the technician is properly trained in safety procedures.
