If you are in a dilemma about looking for residential garage door replacement, relax. You don’t have to sweat it! There are basically only four important factors to consider.
- Budget: Price is important, but it shouldn’t be the only issue. Make sure your budget is realistic enough to include both a low-end and a high-end amount that you’re willing to spend.
- Style: Probably the hardest decision of all is going to be deciding on a look that best suits your home. Fortunately, your budget will narrow the choices down. Take time to have a good look at the garage doors in your neighborhood, especially homes that are similar to yours. A residential garage door replacement professional is also an excellent source for guidance on something that fits your home and budget.
- Insulation: Most parts of America experience drastic climate changes, so it would be worth thinking about insulating the garage door to maintain some sort of temperature control inside.
- Maintenance: If you choose a fibreglass or steel door, maintenance is generally minimal. However, no door is completely maintenance-free. Once a year at the very least, the door should be cleaned and the moving parts lubricated. However, if you’ve got your mind set on a wooden door, bear in mind that maintenance costs are pretty hefty. It will need to be treated and stained every couple of years.
