Garage Door Supplier Guidelines

Things to Know Before Buying a Garage Door  

Ask any professional garage door supplier and they will tell you, that a good quality garage door can last decades, often a lifetime. This is why it makes more sense to spend extra time and effort making the best choice possible and steer clear of cheap garage doors.

Ordering a garage door either online or over the phone is just asking for trouble. Every garage is different, and a knowledgeable salesperson will need to check details such as opening size and shape, headroom and side clearance, and will even help make design decisions. So if something does go wrong, there is no question about whose fault it is. So make sure you get a salesperson to come and check out your garage before ordering a door. Prices vary also, for example, a new 16-ft. door can cost from $800 to $8,000, and a good salesperson will be able to help you find a garage door that is within your budget.

Beware of Wood Doors

Real wood doors may look fabulous when they are new. However, unless you are willing to devote your time and money to maintenance, they won’t remain looking good for long. Natural finishes will last a few years before they require another coat. And if you wait too long, you will have to sand off all the finish and start over if you want your door looking new again.

The cheaper option is embossed steel that has a faux wood-grain finish, which usually under $1,000. From a distance, these doors look like real wood. And, if you are willing to spend more, such as $2,500 and upwards, consider a garage door that has a wood composite overlay or a fiberglass skin.
