How to Choose a New Garage Door
Excited About Freshening Up Your Home’s Exterior?
Picking out a new garage door is a wonderful opportunity to breathe new life into your home. Garage doors are built to last and don’t get replaced often, so it’s important to pay attention to all the details, including style, function, budget, and more.
Precision is here to help you find the garage door that’s right for you! Here, we’ve outlined a few things to consider while shopping for your new door. We provide a free garage door estimate to help you choose the garage door that’s as functional as it is beautiful.
Find a Style That Fits Your Home
More than any other feature of your garage door, its style should be based on your personal preference and the overall look of your home. Some types of homes tend to pair well with a specific garage door style – like carriage-house doors with farmhouse architecture – but the choice is ultimately up to you.
The style of your new garage door will impact the whole exterior of your home and curb appeal, and there are so many options to choose from. We can help you pick the perfect style based on your personal taste and needs.
Look for a Garage Door in Your Budget
Many homeowners considering a new garage door have a budget in mind. A garage door’s price is determined by a number of elements, including the insulation, material, style, size, and more. Depending on your environment and lifestyle, you may need to prioritize some elements over others. For example, if you live in a moderate climate, you may not need to worry about insulation as much as someone who lives in extremely hot or cold areas.
No matter what your budget is, we can help you find a garage door that fits your needs.
Be Sure Your New Door is Properly Insulated
The garage is often a family’s main point of entrance, so having a well-insulated garage door can make the journey from car to home much more pleasant (especially during winter).
However, comfort isn’t the only reason to focus on proper insulation – there are also financial benefits! A drafty garage door can make a noticeable difference in your energy bill by causing your home’s climate control system to work far harder than it should. Insulation is an important factor that could help you save money in the long run.
Where You Live Matters
There are different environmental factors to take into consideration when choosing your new door: flooding, hurricanes, extreme hot and cold temperatures, etc. For example, those who live in hurricane-prone areas will need wind-resistant doors.
You’ll also need to think about how the weather will impact the garage door material you select. Our technicians will help you find a new door that meets your needs and keeps your home safe from the elements.
The Warranty Matters, Too
Ideally, you’ll never need to use your new garage door warranty. At Precision, our fully trained professionals and commitment to only the highest quality parts make it easy for us to guarantee our work with an industry-leading warranty that will cover you for as long as you own your garage door.
