New Garage Door Checklist

Whether your old one is broken or you have simply decided it’s time for a change, at some point you will find yourself looking for a new garage door. Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Charlotte is happy to share our knowledge of things to consider when upgrading your home. There is a lot to consider which can be both exciting and overwhelming. Review these new garage door topics before purchase to ensure you are making the best decision for your home and your family.

Budget and Priorities

New Garage Door Checklist budget

 

Start with your budget and work backward. Instead of forcing yourself to give up your dream garage doors once you spot the price tag, stay within your range the whole time. By prioritizing what is most important to you, you can proactively manage your budget.

Decide before shopping if security, design, or accessories are your top priority making sure you define needs versus wants. Then begin with models that focus on that and add the other features with what is left over in your wallet.

Design

Design can be the most fun, but also the most costly part of your new garage door. You will pay likely pay extra for features such as decorative trims, window accents and designs that follow the latest trends. For example, frosted windows will cost more than standard windows which both cost more than a door with no windows.

Try your best to find a design that either matches or compliments your home design. Since your garage door is an extension of the house, the two should really coincide nicely. Though you will pay extra, this component of your new garage door may also boost your curb appeal and property value.

Functionality & Maintenance

Insulation may not seem like an important part of the decision process, but a poorly insulated space can end up costing you more in the long run. Are you storing items in your garage that cannot handle extreme temperatures? Does anyone in your family spend time in the garage doing projects? Start with quality insulation if these things relate to how you use this space.

The material of your new garage door will also make a big impact on maintenance. You can choose metal or wood as well as specific variations of the two that ensures easy cleaning and longevity.

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.
