The process of buying a garage door for your house.
Your garage door is likely the largest moving part of your home, so when it comes to buying a garage door, functionality, appearance, and price are all top concerns. Garage doors are big enough to completely transform the look of the exterior of your house. Let us share our secrets on how to choose a garage door that complements your home.
STEP ONE – GARAGE DOOR SIZE
The first step in the purchase process of buying a garage door is to figure out what size garage door you need. Measure the height, width, and thickness of your existing garage door. You will need these measurements to select the correct size door. If you are unable to measure the door, contact a garage door installation company, (we would be happy to help at Garage Door and More). Most installation companies will come to your home and measure the door for you.
STEP TWO – GARAGE DOOR STYLE
Next, you’ll want to choose the garage door style. There are four distinct styles to choose from: traditional, contemporary, carriage house wood, and carriage house steel. Most styles come in a variety of materials, including wood, steel, designer fiberglass, aluminum, or vinyl, and a wide selection of colors. For more natural light, consider a garage door with windows.
STEP THREE – GARAGE DOOR BRAND
Now that you know what style best suits your house, it’s time to pick a brand. There are many to choose from, but some of the best garage door brands include Clopay, The Overhead Garage Door Company, Amarr, Raynor, and Wayne Dalton. The list goes on. You can browse each company’s website for a full selection of their garage door options.
STEP FOUR – GARAGE DOOR INSTALLER
