The Types of Garage Doors to Consider
At Pro Line Garage Doors, we want you to know about the types of garage doors that you can consider purchasing. Residential and commercial doors can be just what the doctor ordered to renovate your garage so that it has massive curb appeal. These types of doors have many similarities and differences that make them unique. If you are in the market for a residential garage door then consider the feel of your home’s dynamic. Contemporary garage doors can take a garage to the next level because of the smooth outlines and great materials that they have.
A traditional residential garage door is great for muted color palette homes such as those that are white in color. Residential homes can benefit from an embellished design whereas a commercial door does not have a lot of color to it. This is because steel and aluminum are the materials used due to their strength. Businesses tend to prefer to buy understated garage doors as they are just used for the purposes associated with the tasks at hand.
Technology has changed the way that we serve our customers. You can bring a picture of your residence or business with you and we can take the image and use visualization software that will allow you to see various types of garage doors affixed to your home’s exterior garage door. We have a lot of tips for choosing the right type of garage door so that you can fully work on trying to put everything in perspective.
Garage Door Sizes
Most garage door heights are standard. Single car doors are eight to ten feet wide and six to eight feet high and can offer an array of features for homeowners. A one car garage can allow you to keep your car off of the street and out of the drive way. This is important to making sure that your vehicle can avoid having to sit out in the rain and cold for too long. If your door in standard size then this should be noted. Using a tape measure to double check the length and width is ideal because you have to know these measurements when ordering a garage door from us. If you want to, we can come out and verify the measurements for you.
Households with two or more cars might want to explore double wide garage door options. This type of garage door is approximately twelve to twenty feet wide and twelve to sixteen feet high. If you have enough space for two vehicles then you will want a garage door that is sized well and that opens easily. Double garage doors are very long so you will need to keep this in mind when you are selecting one.
If your garage door’s size does not allow you to purchase a standard door from us then we can assist you with what is known as creating a customized garage door. We can take precise measurements for you and show you the best types of doors that can be made to accommodate the size of your garage door’s entryway.
Brand Names of Garage Doors
Craftsman, Amarr, C.H.I and Clopay are a few of the garage door brand names that you might want to try when choosing a new garage door for installation. Every manufacturer comes up with designs based on the materials that they use to make the doors that they sell. We can show you the websites of these companies and provide you with photographs that detail the current inventory of garage doors that they possess. We can offer you support by giving you a run down of specifications and features for the styles of door from each brand that you want to look at.
A picture can be very powerful when shopping for a new garage door. Our visualization software is designed to give you more power as a consumer. We want you to see these brand names up close so that you can get a 360 degree view of how they will look when placed on your own garage door. If you have any questions about the software or how your garage door looks, then we can help to answer them for you. Never be afraid to ask us anything because we want you to understand everything there is to know to make an informed decision when choosing a brand name door.
Garage Door Materials
The appearance of your garage door is very important. It is important to take into consideration how your home will look to your neighbors and people who drive by your home or business. Glass, aluminum, steel and wood are the most common garage door materials for both residential and commercial doors.
Wood can be a tricky garage door material because of the maintenance tasks that are associated with the door. The wood will get wet often which makes it a risk for termites and potential rotting issues down the line.
Glass garage doors are exquisite because of the fact that they are clear. You can add opaque or frosted panels if you want to have a door that is protected from view as well. What is beneficial about glass is that it looks modern which can help you to be able to sustain its sense of style for several years without having to replace it. Steel garage doors can last for many years and often are very simple yet effective at what they have to offer you. Business owners can choose between steel and aluminum doors because wood or glass are not the best options for the intended purpose.
Garage Door Window Designs
Artistic glass can enhance a garage door window design. As a home owner, you have to always think of the best ways to make your garage door windows shine amongst a field of simple garage windows in your neighborhood. Beveled glass designs are a common option. Ovals, diamonds, squares, circles and hexagons can be added to the window design with assorted colored etching to give your garage door windows a special touch of class and elegance. If you do not see what you desire in any of the window design materials that we show you, then feel free to ask us about creating your own unique window panels.
We suggest that you also look at snap in window panels because of their versatility. In today’s world, you never know what will happen to your door’s windows. These windows can snap out and be quickly replaced to accommodate cleaning, repairs and replacements.
Garage Door Styles
Carriage house doors, contemporary doors and traditional doors are the top three styles of garage doors to choose from. Carriage house doors are simplistic yet have wood on them which can give you the ability to have a rustic feel with your garage door and home. If you decide to purchase carriage house style doors then consider selecting a style of wood such as redwood or cedar that will enhance the overall appearance. You can also ask for the door to be stained or painted so that you can put your own spin on the design of the door so that the style matches your needs.
Contemporary garage doors often have a mixture of materials such as glass and wood so that there is texture yet an openness as well. With contemporary garage doors, you want to make sure that the style of the garage door does not clash with the feel of the whole house. Traditional doors can be painted to give you a raised or flat panel that looks exceptional. We suggest looking for traditional garage doors that have been designed well and have nice lines on them.
Security should be something that you focus on with your garage door shopping. If you do not look at the details that surround the security of the door then you can put yourself at risk personally and financially. A criminal scouts out his or her victims in advance. Because garage doors have openers, this makes them vulnerable to an attack. One thing to examine closely is the garage door lock. This should be a deadbolt lock. If you prefer a technological advancement then look for a keyless entry pad for your garage door.
If you want to reinforce the entire garage door then consider having us install steel kick plates on it.
Rolling codes and automatic reverse features can also be excellent safety features to have. Rolling codes are tasked with making sure that a person cannot hack into your remote frequency so that they can use it to open your door when you are out. This happens frequently which is why having a code that changes every single time the door closes is so effective at helping to prevent crimes from occurring. Automatic reverse is a great feature because once an obstacle is spotted, the door will automatically reverse its position which can save your life or your garage door’s from being damaged.
Garage Door Opener Installation
Garage door openers often have to be replaced. If you need this service performed then we will begin by examining the current opener and seeing what features your new one should have to increase your door’s performance. We will show you various opener models based on horsepower and price. We will then work with you to decide on which one you want to purchase and allow us to install it.
