So, your garage door is old, or you don’t like how it looks anymore. Whatever reason you have to consider a garage door replacement, it’s vital to do your best to choose a suitable option.
After all, garage door replacements are often a once-in-a-lifetime improvement project. So, as you plan to upgrade your garage door, three critical factors are essential:
- Material choice
- Material Choice
It’s essential to look into the pros and cons of each garage door material. If you love the attractive rusticity and classic nature of wood, you’ve got to remember it comes with a higher maintenance cost.
If an aluminum garage door is your pick, its lightweight nature makes it easy to lift manually, but the flip side is it is prone to dents. On the other side, steel is loved because it’s typically insulated, making it more energy-efficient.
The garage door covers a significant part of your façade. It should add to your curb appeal and complement your home’s style.
So, choose an attractive style, not necessarily one that stands out but blends in with your home’s exterior.
For the most effect, stick to one style. You don’t want a contemporary aluminum garage door on a colonial-style home. We recommend choosing a garage door style that matches your front entry door for uniformity.
The current trend in construction is making most buildings energy efficient. So, go with an insulated garage door or add insulation to your new garage door.
This is helpful, especially if you live in a colder climate, have a F.R.O.G. (Finished Room Over the Garage), or want to maintain a more consistent temperature in your garage door and save on energy bills.
So, when choosing your new garage door, remember to consider these three factors.
