Buying a garage door is not a decision to be taken lightly. As probably the largest moving part in your house, it’s important to choose the right garage door in line with your household’s requirements. If you’re looking at replacing an old door or adding the finishing touches to your new build, here’s our guide to making sure you get the garage door you need.
Through innovation, technology and design, garage doors have changed over the last decade. Where once your choice was limited to a tilt door, there are now a variety of garage door options to choose from, including rolling doors and steel sectional doors. There are also numerous colours, finishes, styles and optional extras that you can specify.
When selecting your garage door you should consider your immediate needs. For example, you may have children or pets, so safety should be front of mind. Automated doors these days have photoelectric safety devices that will stop the closing door and reverse it to the open position if an invisible light beam is broken by your car or - worse - by a child.
Before you commit to buying a garage door, get at least 2-3 quotes from different sources and use the above as a checklist. Going for the cheapest option is not necessarily the best thing to do.
