Garage Door Installation and Replacement
More Reasons To Consider Installing A New Garage Door
Keeping your precious mechanical toys secure is the reason we have garages in the first place. Depending on your home’s layout, your garage is most likely also an entry point to your home. You want it to be as secure as your front door.
We take great care in providing garage door brands that are trusted for their quality and up to date security features. But above all else, we place great emphasis in workmanship that sparks these features to life.
A garage door is a complex mechanical operation. A malfunction can present a serious threat to you and your loved ones’ safety. A properly operating door is a safe door. A properly operating door begins at installation. Whatever problems you are having with your garage door, it is recommended that you do not try to fix it yourself as you could get hurt and/or make the situation worse. Call us for a consult.
Less maintenance, ease of operation, energy efficiency and noise reduction – all these are ways that you could benefit from installing a new garage door. At first glance, it might seem as if installing a new garage door is too much work compared to doing a few minor repairs on your old problematic one.
But in some cases (when your old door has already had it’s fair run), a new door might save you more time and money in the long run. A fresh start will also buy you peace of mind – the last thing you need is a malfunctioning door while trying to get to work, school or appointment on time!
New Garage Door – Basic Information
What Is The Best Material For My Garage Door?
Steel is the go-to material for most home-owners with garages. Not only is it durable, it is also cost-effective (affordable) and easy to maintain. Steel doors come in ranges – mainly depending on the grade of the steel and/or the panel style. The choice of steel grade and panel style will affect the cost of the garage door.
How About Insulation?
Steel garage doors are constructed in layers. This layering (insulation) is measured by thermal resistance it offers – the higher the rating the more the insulation and the more you’ll be able to maintain the temperature in your garage. Our doors come in these ranges;
- Fully-Insulated (Vinyl Back)
- Fully-Insulated (Steel Back)
What Are The Other Material Options?
Other available garage door material include wood and aluminium. These typically cost more than steel. If what you are looking for is the convenience of steel and the aesthetics of other materials, you have the option to choose a steel door with a wood-grain finish.
Should I Have Glass/Windows On My Garage Door?
Basically, glass will improve on the aesthetics of your door, not to mention bring in some light into the interior of your garage. As far as the light intensity, you can choose to go with clear, tinted and obscured options.
How About Some Impact Resistance?
This is not an unusual consideration, especially if you are in an area that experience extreme weather. Some local government, especially in areas prone to hurricanes and tornadoes, place wind-load regulations. Pretty much, in case of anything, you want to be assured that your door will hold. Luckily, most brands place this under consideration while developing their doors.
