So, you want to do some home remodeling, and you have decided that it is time to give yourself a new garage door. That being said, you may be one of us who have never had your garage door changed out before; you may find yourself wracked with all sorts of questions that you want to be answered by those professionals who you plan on taking care of the job. Allow us to give you the ten of the most common questions asked to garage door dealers.
Metal or Wood?
Each of these types of garage door material has their benefits and drawbacks. Metal garage doors are low in maintenance and upkeep, while wood has more of a positive aesthetic look to it. That being said there are many different options within these two categories, so you would be able to find one within your price range.
Insulated or Non-Insulated?
It all matters what you use your garage for, is it attached or detached, and is the interior temperature controlled or not? If it is, and under another room, such as a bedroom, it is advised that you have it insulated. The more your garage is used for other than just parking your car, the more necessary it is to have it insulated.
Garage Door Lifespan
Often wondered about, how long does a garage door last? This has to do with the quality of the components that go into its construction. A quality garage door should usually last around 20 years. This can apparently be altered due to weather conditions and garage door maintenance and upkeep.
Should I Put Windows on it?
It all depends on your thought of natural light vs. privacy. If you have no interior windows in your garage, then a row of these on your door would not be such a bad idea. If you are worried about potential break-ins due to these windows, some materials can be used to make a reliable and durable window.
How much will It Cost?
This all depends on the material being used, and the costs the company has set up. We recommend you contact our associates and let them explain the costs to you further.
