Choosing the Right Door Style

(March 20, 2013)
When it comes to choosing a garage door, either for your new home or to replace an existing one there are a number of factors to consider.

Price of course comes to mind and will vary depending on the quality or style of door chosen. There are many more colours and styles available as well as window options than in previous years. There are also options in materials such as steel with factory applied paint colours all the way to wood doors that can be custom stained, or fibreglass with stain and texture to mimic real wood. Shopping from a garage door dealer also gives you more sizing options than the big box stores.

Your garage door makes up a large portion of the front of most homes and can have a dramatic affect on curb appeal. You need to take a look at your home and choose a door that will complement existing colours in the house and trim as well as window styles.

We can help you with these decisions as well as point you to supplier web sites where you can view door styles on sample homes to help you visualize the door on your own home. Buying from a door dealer also comes with the piece of mind that the same company will sell, install, and warranty both the product and the labour.
