If you’re looking for a new garage door then you may be wondering how to choose the best door for your needs. With so many options to choose from, this video goes over a few tips and things to look out for.
The most often asked question is what is the difference between the traditional and carriage style garage doors. The traditional door typically has one or two panels with a conventional post-industrial look.
These are usually made out of some form of compost plastic blend that should last a long time. Carriage doors, on the other hand, are made to resemble the quaint looks of years gone by. This style of door is more oriented towards aesthetics and is usually a bit more pricey.
Steel is the most popular door material due to its strength, resistance to rust, and ability to withstand heavy loads. Wood garage doors, on other hand, look far more natural but require more upkeep. Aluminium doors offer a more contemporary look while still offering great durability for many years to come.
The final question you’ll want to ask yourself is how the door is installed and if that form of installation will help reduce heating and cooling costs.
