What Do You Need to Know When Buying a New Garage Door?

Your garage door is utilitarian, protecting your belongings from the elements, prying eyes, and thieves but at Bob’s Advance Garage Doors, we know a garage door is also more than that. A beautiful garage door can work with the overall architecture of your home or completely clash with it. As one of the largest features of the front of your home, the garage door is one of the first things that catches the eyes of guests and potential homebuyers. So, it is only right to invest some time and money in choosing the right garage door. Here are some things to consider when buying a new garage door.

See the Garage Door in Person

In today’s age, it seems that everyone likes to buy what they need through online markets but ordering a garage door online is asking for trouble. Returning a shirt that looks nothing like it did on the listing is easy. The same cannot be said about returning a garage door. Visiting an actual store like Bob’s Advance Garage Doors gives you the opportunity to see and feel the details of the garage door in addition to getting real-time help from a knowledgeable salesperson. At Bob’s Advance Garage Doors, our friendly professionals will make sure to help you pick the garage door that best suits your home. Call our office now to schedule garage door repair, replacement or installation services in your area.

Be Aware of Material and Maintenance

It can be tempting to opt for the best-looking garage door off of looks alone but be sure to consider the material that the door is made of. Garage doors come in a range of materials from wood, steel, aluminum, to fiberglass, and more. Many people enjoy the aesthetics of wood but do not know that wood requires a lot of maintenance. Neglected wood doors will decay, rot, and damage more easily than the others. Steel is the most common and the least expensive. Aluminum is resistant to corrosion and rust, so it is ideal for locations where moisture is a problem. Vinyl is a newer material being used; it is durable and requires low maintenance. For more detailed information on the materials, visit Bob’s Advance Garage Doors and ask a friendly salesperson for assistance for garage door replacement, repair or installation services..

Check the Insulation

If you are going to be in the garage often, then you will want to make sure it is the right temperature in there. If you live in a cold climate, then you want to keep the heat inside and you will want the heat of the harsh summers outside during the hotter seasons. Therefore, it is important to ask about the insulation of the garage door. Ask your Bob’s Advance Garage Doors salesperson about the R-value of the garage door. Higher R-values mean better insulation. Remember, solid insulation will save you on energy consumption for heating and cooling. Definitely a worthy investment!

Consult A Professional

The people at Bob’s Advance Garage Doors know their garage doors. Visit the store and feel free to take a look at the inventory. A friendly salesperson would be more than happy to help you make the right pick. We look forward to seeing you!

  • Ways to Prevent Garage Break-ins

    The garage door is one of the favorite entry points for burglars that take advantage of the negligence showcased by some careless homeowners. More so, some homeowners are not aware that the old garage doors can be opened with a wire hanger within six seconds.

  • Preventive Maintenance Tips for Garage Door Owners

    It’s easy to overlook some red flags about your garage door functionality. After all, it closes, opens, and does its job. However, such negligence could back-fire anytime soon. As one of the largest moving hardware in your home, the system can gradually fail due to multiple uses. 

  • How to Choose a Garage Door Opener?

    It is hard to quantify the peace of mind homeowners have when their garage door functions without issues. This is because garages connected to the rest of the home is often an overlooked gateway for thieves and burglars. To protect the investment and valuables in your garage from theft, it’s vital to get a durable door opener with a plethora of features and add-ons.

  • Customize Your Garage Door with Windows and Hardware

    Though the garage entry door grants access to your vehicles and other belongings, it is often much more than a storage space. An old and worn-out garage door can send a wrong message about your personality and also compromise your security
