What Should I Consider When Buying a New Garage Door?

Are you thinking about buying a new garage door? If so, there are things you need to consider when making the purchase. The team here at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair has put together a few tips to help you make a good decision.

1. Take The Measurements of Your Garage Door

Before you get started on your hunt, you need to know what size door you are looking for. The manufacturer can customize it to fit your home, but it may make a difference of which styles you will go with.

To measure your door, you will need to measure the:

  1. Width- go from one side of the door to the other
  2. Height- go from the floor to the finished opening, but take note if your floor is uneven
  3. Side room- measure from the side of the door to the wall
  4. Headroom- measure the top of the door to the ceiling
  5. Ceiling- go from the opening of your garage door to the back wall

2. Decide on The Material

There are several different materials you can choose from. Each of the materials has its own benefits. Modern-day garage doors are made from wood, metal, glass, vinyl, composite, steel, and others.

3. Consider The Style

You can radically alter the way your home looks with a new door. For example, if you install a glass garage door, it will add a sleek look to your house. Wood doors can bring a romantic tone. Carriage style is a great way to bring a unique look to your outside.

Spend some time looking at catalogs to figure out what you like best. Consider having one of our professionals come out and work with you to come up with a good look. We can help you find a style that gives your home the upgrade you want.  

4. Determine How Insulated You Need it to Be

Every garage door has a certain level of insulation. We recommend you go with a door that has an R-value of 12 or more if you have an attached home. Depending on the weather conditions in your area, you may consider going with greater R-value than that. If you are in an area with extremely hot or cold seasons, more insulation will be important.

5. Find Out if You Need a Different Garage Door Opener

Each garage door opener model is designed to lift a certain amount of weight. If you go with a door that is heavier than the one you currently have installed, you’ll need a new opener. Our technicians can help you figure out if you’ll need an upgrade on your opener.

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.
