What to look for in a new garage door

Garage doors can be insanely hard to pick out because there are so many options! Finding out what garage door is best for you is a time-consuming process. Companies are making it easier nowadays with visualization tools to help you see how a garage door will look on your house. It is still important to know what you are looking for. 

Style – You need a garage door that fits the style and the look of your home. Garage doors are one of the first impressions that visitors have when viewing your home. It is important that the garage door doesn’t stick out; it needs to match in order to really make your home pop! 

Practical options – There are many different ways a garage door can open. From the common overhead garage door to opening like an old barn door, there are a bunch of options to choose from. Overhead doors are easier to automate, but any door can be automated for the right price. Think about your budget and how you want your garage door to work. 

Insulation and safety – Picking the best garage door to insulate your garage is important. The proper insulation can increase the temperature in your garage by 10-20 degrees! Besides insulation, think about where you live. Is there a lot of storms? Does it get super cold? Try to pick out a garage door that also keeps your garage safe!

There is a lot to think about when looking for a new garage door. The most important thing is to find one that you like and fits your home!
