Selecting a New Garage Door

A garage door is an investment for your home. It may be the most noticeable feature on the front of your home and is likely the biggest entryway into your home. A new garage door can last years, so picking the right door is important.

Selecting a New Garage Door

Before selecting a door, there are a few questions you need to answer:

1.  What’s your budget? The cost of a new door is dependent on several factors. Your budget will determine the features to consider for the door.

2.  What other options do I need? Are you considering an insulated or wind-resistant door? For some regions that is a critical decision. Do you need a unique track? Make a list of your requirements.

3.  What style do you want? The Garage door style should be based on your personal preference. Consider the curb appeal for the door, and how it works with the aesthetic of the house.

4. What is your choice of finish? The finish of the door can turn an average door distinctive, or make a statement for your home. Consider a wood look or a bold color.

5. Who will install the door? Sometimes you want to install the door yourself, but we suggest hiring a professional to install the door. It’s safer, and the warranty will give you peace of mind.

There is a lot to consider when choosing a new garage door. If you’re looking for more information, check out the options on our site, or take a look at the comprehensive buying guide offered by Clopay.
