Purchasing A New Garage Door

Share Button

Today’s garage doors are stronger, more secure, better insulated, and require much less maintenance than their predecessors.

In addition, you have many more choices in materials, styles, colors, and window treatments.

Most new garage doors are made of steel backed by rigid-foam insulation.

<h3>Steel Garage Doors</h3>

If you are in the market for a new steel garage door, look for panels made of 24-ga steel for the best durability and for a model with a baked-on primer and polyester topcoat for maximum rust protection.

Another thing to keep in mind is the warranty that comes with it. Warranties for steel garage doors start at 10 years; limited lifetime coverage is not uncommon.

<h3>Plastic Garage Doors</h3>

Like steel, plastic garage doors offer lightweight durability without routine upkeep. Unlike steel though, they are corrosion free, and they operate almost silently. They also contain UV-resistant additives, therefore light-colored versions can take sun without fading.

Plastic doors carry 20-year or longer Warranties.

<h3>Wood Garage Doors</h3>

Once the mainstay garage door material, wood has taken a backseat to other materials in the middle of the market. To a great extent, this is due to the added maintenance and regular painting wood garage doors require. Most wood doors are constructed with a hemlock frame and hardboard panels. But custom doors are often made from solid Douglas fir. The typical warranty for a factory-made wood door is one year; many custom doors are backed for 15 years.

Generally, steel doors are the most budget-friendly with wood and plastic garage doors being more expensive.

Steel garage doors and plastic garage doors also tend to be more safe for families with kids.

“We never have qualms about inventory because it’s almost like money in the bank. Everybody wants everything fairly quickly. Our inventory has been a big help for us,” Ciminero observes. “Service is the name of the game whether you’re unplugging sewers or installing garage doors. You lose the edge if you make customers wait two or three days.”

Keeping the company’s stock diverse also creates business opportunities. “We stock parts that are pretty much universal to most garage doors, so we can service just about any residential or commercial garage door or garage door opener,” Ciminero states.

The company also stocks the same electric opener it did 26 years ago. That way, if customers need a replacement part on a 10 year-old opener, Great Garage can supply it. “Some companies switch around and consequently you can’t get parts for openers that are maybe three years old.
