Important Factors When Selecting Residential Garage Doors
After establishing your requirements we will then help you to select the exact type of door you would like to have installed at your Edmonton home. To do so there are a number of factors to consider, including:
Type of Garage Door
The type of garage door best suited to your garage will usually depend on how you use your garage, the amount of available space and the budget you have available. The main types to look at are roller garage doors, sectional garage doors, overhead garage doors and swing garage doors. We will suggest the most applicable type in your circumstances and point out the various pros and cons
After selecting the type of garage door you would like, you will need to choose the material that it will be made from. There are several different options and we can advise you on the merits of each. Steel is by far the most popular material used in the construction of residential garage doors and is durable (important considering the winters we get here in Edmonton), low maintenance, economical and comes in a wide range of different design options. Other options include wood, which is a natural insulator but needs to be regularly maintained; fiberglass, which is capable of resisting minor damage and salt-water corrosion better than other options; and wood composite, which offers the appearance of a natural wood in combination with a level of durability similar to that of steel.
The design of residential garage doors is one aspect that has to be carefully considered, since your garage door will most likely be situated in a prominent position at the front of your home and be visible to passersby. There are various different panel styles you can select for your new garage door including flush panels, long raised panels, short raised panels and painted panels. We will make you aware of all options available and make suggestions based on the other elements in the exterior design of your property.
