Top 5 Questions To Ask Yourself Before Installing a New Garage Door in KW
Putting in a new garage door is a great way to boost the curb appeal and value of your home, but it’s also a significant investment, so you want to make sure you get the best garage door for your needs.
Knowing a little about garage doors will help you select one that’s durable, visually pleasing and in line with your budget.
But more importantly you have to think about how you currently use your garage or plan to use it in the future.
Here are 5 things to consider:
How insulated do you want your garage door to be?
Having a well insulated garage can lower your energy costs, and make your garage more comfortable when the outside temperature becomes too hot and too cold. If you have a well insulated garage, an overhead door with a higher insulation rating will help you remain energy efficient. How much time you spend in the garage is another consideration. If your garage doubles as a workshop or a man cave, selecting a garage door with a higher insulation rating (r-value) might be a wise choice.
How likely are you to dent or damage your garage door?
If your children play hockey, basketball or ride their bikes around your garage, you’ll want to select a garage door with a bit more durability. Materials such as vinyl and fibreglass are less likely to get damaged or dented.
How important is it to be environmentally friendly?
If your heart is set on being eco-friendly, you might want to select a garage door made of aluminum or wood. The aluminum used in garage doors is fully recyclable. We’d be happy to explain the pros and cons of different styles, so you can stay “green”.
What’s the reason for investing in a new garage door?
A garage door is an essential element of your home’s external appearance. In fact, studies show that a new garage door can fetch an 85 percent return on investment by adding a sense of security and making a great first impression.
