Garage Doors

8'H x 7'W doors start at around $1300.00 with a three layer (steel/insulation/steel) running about $1500.00 When shopping for a new garage door for your home it is important to consider more than just price. While price is the driving force behind the decision making process there are other factors to consider as well. Outlined below are the top four categories to examine when looking for a new garage door.

Budget: Price is an important factor, but remember, it is not the only factor. It is essential to have a budget in mind when looking into any major purchase. Make sure to have a realistic range to work within that includes both a high-end and even a low-end amount you are willing to spend.

Style: Trying to decide on a look that best fits your home is probably going to be the hardest decision of all. Luckily, if you set a budget, it will help to narrow down some choices. Take time to look at garage doors in your neighborhood, looking for homes similar to yours. Door professionals are also a good source and can help direct you in the style that best fits your home and your budget.

Insulation: After choosing a style of door, the next step is deciding if you want the door to be insulated or not. With drastic climate changes in most of the country, it is typically a good idea to insulate a garage door to help keep some sort of temperature control within your garage.

Maintenance: For most garage doors maintenance is generally minimal if you have a steel or fiberglass door. Remember no door is absolutely maintenance-free; it is recommended to clean the door and lubricate the moving parts of the door at the very minimum once a year. However, if you are considering a wooden garage door, keep in mind that maintenance and cost increases. Wooden garage doors need to be treated and stained once every couple of years.

By doing your homework prior to purchasing a new door, you will save time and money. Check with Tricity Garage Door your local door professional when doing your research; they are a great source of information and can lead you in the right direction.
