Frequently Asked Questions About Garage Doors

Garage doors can have a lifetime of over 20 years so choosing a new door is a major decision. The team at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair is available to help you look through your options and answer any questions you might have. Here are a few common ones. 

How Much Is This Going to Cost Me?

The cost of the garage door is affected by the material the door is made of, added features such as windows, and any custom sizing or details you may need. We can help you find a garage door that fits into your budget and has the features you want. 

Which Is the Better Choice- Wood or Metal?

As with all of the features for your garage door, the climate you live in and how you intend to use your door are all factors in what is the best choice. Wood is a great choice if you need a door that is easily customizable. Wood also won’t dent like metal doors but they are heavier and require regular maintenance to keep them from rotting. 

With metal garage doors you have the choice of steel or aluminum. Steel doors are stronger than wood, will not rot or rust, and are low maintenance. Aluminum doors also will not rust and are lightweight. Our team can help you way the pros and cons of all available options to find the choice that fits your budget and needs.   

What is the Benefit of Insulation?

If your garage is not a climate-controlled part of your home you may be wondering if there is any benefit to adding insulation to your garage door. One way that insulation can benefit your garage door is by reducing the noise made during operation and helping to dampen noise from the outside. 

Insulation can also help keep your garage warmer in cold temperatures which will help save on energy costs. Keeping your garage above freezing will allow cars to start more easily and be better for any items stored inside. Insulation also helps to reflect radiant heat in the summer to keep the garage cooler. 

How Do I Know What Opener Will Work with My New Door?

You’ve chosen your door and now it’s time to match it to a garage door opener. Just like when choosing your door you will need to consider what you need it to do. You will want to find an opener that can handle the weight of your door, stand up to expected use, and not make more noise you can live with. 

Openers have three main drive styles- chain, belt, and screw drive. If reducing noise is your main concern than a belt drive is the way to go. Chain drives are budget-friendly options that are very reliable but create more noise. Screw drives are also a quiet option and require less maintenance. 

Tell Me More About The Available Features

You’ve picked out the style, material, and opener to go with your garage door and now you are thinking about adding features to customize the door to meet your needs. Some features that you may want to consider are:

  • Windows
  • Added Safety Features
  • Wifi and Bluetooth Openers
  • Color
  • And more…

So if you want to add windows to let in sunlight or be able to monitor your door from your smartphone, we can help you find the features you want.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
