Types of Garage Doors
There are two types of garage doors available for purchase and they are commercial and residential. Residential are designed for homes and commercial are designed for businesses. Carriage house garage doors are often a favorite if you like residential garage doors that take you back in time. This is because when people owned farms decades ago, they used to have wooden barn doors that helped to give their livestock a place to call home. Today, we know that you need a type of garage door that will be versatile so that you can get what you need from the purchase.
Another favorite type of garage door is a sectional door that folds up. These are simple yet classic looking garage doors that can be used for both residential and commercial properties. Your style of home will help to determine which type of garage door you need. If you have a new home, then a residential garage door with contemporary panels such as glass might be what you desire. An older home such as a log cabin might need a carriage house door with cedar accents. Your home’s value can be impacted if you select the wrong type of garage door to use. This is because the garage door needs to blend in with the entire home instead of sticking out like an eye sore.
Garage doors that fold up are very convenient for you if you have a garage door that will be used for commercial purposes. If you own your own business, then your garage will often have to store multiple vehicles and objects. This means that you will need to take stock of what your needs are for the door. We suggest that you allow us to come on site and take measurements for you and evaluate your home or business so that we can compile as much information possible to help you.
Garage doors should be compared based on their price, materials, durability, insulation and how much energy they can save you. We can help you narrow down your selections by first meeting with you to discuss your home or business. We have software that we can use to help you make a determination as to the best options that we think might work for your garage. This can help you to visualize the garage door on your home because we can upload a picture of your home and give you a preview of how each of the garage doors will look once installed.
We know that in today’s economy that spending thousands of dollars for a garage door has to be an investment for you. We will do our best to act as an advocate for you. When you are shopping for a garage door, you should try to take as much time as possible so that you do not overlook a type of garage door that might appeal to you.
