How do I choose the right type of garage door?
The right type of door for you will depend on a number of factors - you should consider the overall theme of your house and the look you want to go for as well as more practical factors. How much room do you have and how much headroom do you need? Regular tracks need about a foot of headroom, so if you have less than that, opt for a low-headroom system, but it may be a bit more pricey. You should also consider the weather and security in your area and whether it would be good to consider any additional features in light of this.
Why should I upgrade to a newer garage door model?
Our professional installation technicians agree that newer models are generally more energy-efficient and better equipped with safety and security features. If your door is old and faulty, a garage door replacement may well be worth the investment considering the long-term benefits and upgraded features you can enjoy.
When is the best time to replace my garage door?
If your existing one is not working anymore or is already a potential hazard, replacing it with a new one might be a smart move. Generally, these systems do have a shelf life so if you've had yours for many years and think the parts are looking particularly worn, it might well be time to invest in an upgrade. It'll very likely be cheaper in the long run.
Is it possible to just replace a section of my door?
Our garage door professionals can replace only sections of a door, but this will also depend upon the extent of the damage. Our technicians may recommend more extensive garage door panel replacement after evaluating the situation and deeming the damage too extensive.
