Guide to Choosing Your Garage Door

Custom image


Are you the type of person that struggles to choose a flavour of ice cream at the shops, let alone something more permanent and important? Even though the ice cream will always end up being good, we still toss up our options before making the choice. When choosing a garage door, we also need to know we’re making the right choice – garage doors are with us for a long time, not just for a few days.

In this post, we’ll give you a guide to choosing your garage door and highlight what you should be looking for.

Is it secure?

If you’re concerned about protecting your home, then making sure your garage door has the best security qualities is a priority when choosing your garage door. Garage doors are one of the first things that protect your home from intruders. Many garages lead to the rest of the home, so you’re not just protecting your car, but the rest of your home too. Think about motorising your door, installing motion sensor lights and installing an automatic closing timer.

 Which material suits you best?

Another big part of our guide to choosing your garage door lies in the material. When selecting a material, it’s important to consider cosmetics and practicality. Wood garage door panels may be the best-looking option for your home, but they’re not as durable as steel, so this is something to keep in mind when looking for a garage door.

What are the safety features?

Safety should be at the top of your mind when choosing a garage door. Laser detectors, which prevent the door from closing if something is in the way, and automatic reversing technology are two features that we strongly encourage everyone to look for.

What style?

Finally, we come to style. Roll up, tilt and sectional all have their own things that make them beautiful, but there’s no secret you may like one more than the others. Consider the strengths and weaknesses of each door. For example, you may love the look of a tilt door, but you may prefer the price tag of a roller door.

What’s the price?

This leads us to our next point – price! Consider the long-term effects of your garage door purchase. How long will it be sticking around in your life? You may only buy a garage door once or twice in your lifetime, so, consider whether you can increase your budget to buy something you’ll love forever.
