A Guide to Choosing a Garage Door

A Guide to Choosing a Garage Door
Your garage door isn’t probably the first thing you consider and it is not cheap, but it makes a huge difference to the appearance of the garage to your home.

There are a few key factors to consider when making the right choice: budget, security, maintenance, insulation, colour and strength. The choice of materials and styles is now extensive.

If you are building a new garage, the very first thing to consider is the garage doors.

A roller door requires little room inside your garage and may be the best option; it combines quality, security, appearance and convenience. A sectional garage door is made up of separate panels that rise vertically giving room for wider vehicles such as 4wds.

Ask the professionals of a shed company as they can provide you with a custom designed garage that is customised for your property.

Once you’ve decided on the type of your garage door, it’s time to come up to the materials to be used in its construction.

There are four main types of materials that are usually used in manufacturing a garage door:

  • Steel
  • Aluminium
  • Timber
  • Glass-reinforced polyester (GRP or plastic) or glass fibre

Your decision will depend on the exterior style of your garage.

The next step to think about is deciding on the size of your garage door. Make sure to choose one that will suit the opening size of your structure.
