Garage doors have a lifespan. While some may last longer than others, eventually you’re going to need your garage door replaced. When the time comes, here are three tips to ensure you get the most out of your garage door replacement.
- Consider the Material
What type of garage door you choose will change depending on what kind of environment you live in. If you reside in a humid area, you’ll want to go for a material that’s rust resistant, such as aluminum or steel. If you’re willing to do a bit more maintenance, you can choose a wooden door. Finally, composite wood garage doors are ideal for those who are wanting a wood aesthetic without the upkeep.
- Does It Need to Be Insulated?
While modern garage doors provide a tighter seal, they’re not always insulated. Whether you choose to install an insulated garage door depends on several factors. If your garage is attached to your house, you should almost always opt for an insulated door. This is particularly true if your garage door faces the sun or is exposed to harsh winds. Insulated doors also help to keep the amount of noise your door makes to a minimum.
- How Strong Does It Need to Be?
If you live in an area prone to high winds and hail storms, you’ll want to choose a garage door that is stronger – in particular, look for storm ready models. If you live in a temperate area with minimal danger, you can go for something a bit lighter and less expensive.
