How to choose a garage door for your home

When it is time to upgrade your home, buying a new garage door can be a great way to enhance your curb appeal. Many homeowners know that making this simple change will revitalize their home. The concern is in choosing the right door for your home. Here at Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Seattle, WA, we have a few tips on how to make the selection that is right for you.

Functionality and Design

Depending on the functionality of your garage door will have something to do with the design that you select. Different doors are manufactured to withstand certain types of weather as well as work in their own way.

If you live in a high wind area, you would want a door that is designed to withstand the elements. Some homeowners need more insulation for the sake of lower energy costs.

Safety is another concern when it comes to choosing your door. Make certain that you do enough research to see if there are poor reviews surrounding the design. There are some pinch-resistant styles that you can consider for the safety of your children.

Having a functional door that is designed the way that is most beneficial to you is most important to think about.

Budget Friendly

Every homeowner has a different allotment of how much they can afford for home improvements. Figure out what your budget is for the purchase. Call Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Seattle to get an estimate for the installation to complete your figures.

Once you know approximately how much it will be to install the door and how much you have to spend in total, you can look at the different styles.

Select the Material

There are several different types of materials that you can choose from for your overhead door. You can go with fiberglass, metal, wood, vinyl, steel, and more. Each of these materials are best for different purposes.

If you have an industrial building, metal or steel is a good choice. For those that are looking for a rustic style should go with wood. Vinyl can be used for modern homes of many styles.

Choose the Right Color

White and wood doors are usually safe bets when it comes to matching. If you are going with other colors, be sure to use a contrasting hue, instead of matching straight on. It is easier to go with a shade lighter or darker than you home.

Look at a Like-Styled Home

If you are still having a difficult time deciding on the right style and color, look at other homes that are similar to yours. You can get a good idea of what you prefer by seeing what other homeowners have chosen.

Take the time to look through home improvement magazines to see what the trends are. Or you can go with classic looks for a longer lasting update.

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.
