Buying a NEW Garage Door, so much to consider now a days!
For most of us, buying a garage door is not something we’ve done recently. In fact many of us still have the same one that came with our home. Ten to twenty years later, we now realize it’s time to upgrade and improve our curb appeal or maybe we didn’t have a hurricane rated door and want extra security for our family.
Well today, there are a number of things to consider when buying a garage door. This blog will assist you in making the best decision.
Contact your insurance company to see if a higher “wind loaded” Garage Door will get you a larger discount on your insurance.
Do you need a door that is insulated? If you have installed an air conditioning unit in your garage because you have a washer and dryer or a workshop in your garage an insulated door may be a better option for you. Insulated garage doors keep the cool in and the hot out, which is what we like here in Florida!
Think about what style of garage door will be best suited to the design of my home. Today, there is no limit to the styles and options when it comes to garage doors. This is a real opportunity to change the look of your home without spending a lot of money. If you are going to make the purchase, spending a couple hundred dollars more to add curb appeal & safety features to your home is definitely a smarter investment. Especially since you probably will not need to buy another for at least 20 years, if ever again.

From faux wood finishes to composite overlays to carriage style doors, the number of choices is endless.
