Steel Garage Doors are the most popular door. Steel is the most widely used material for garage doors today because of its durability.
Steel will look great forever and is just about maintenance-free. Pictured left is a Steel Garage Door in Raised Panel.
Additionally, they have the advantage of being the least expensive garage door you can buy.
If you're looking to add even more appeal to your home, a Steel Door in Carriage Style like the one below might be just what you're looking for...
Carriage House Doors will radically beautify your home.
These doors increase the curb appeal of your home so much that real estate studies have shown they increase the value of your house.
But that's not the real reason to have them... the most important reason is just how much you'll love the way the exterior of your home looks... and if the neighbors are a little jealous, well, that just can't be helped!
Custom Garage Doors Wood has a natural beauty, is very versatile, and operates quietly. It may be painted or stained and is available in a wide price range.
If you choose a wood door, you should plan to spend some time maintaining it.
Wood garage doors can be fully customized to your needs. Custom garage doors are available in any size and type of wood; including cedar, hemlock & mahogany.
Wood-Composite Garage Doors are just above steel in terms of price. They come primed and ready to paint with a limited lifetime warranty. People who buy wood-composite doors, do so for 3 reasons:
Wood-composite can easily be customized for your home. Because it requires painting anyway, it is a simple matter to use color in such a way to accent your home or match the existing color scheme.
The second advantage of wood-composite is that once it is painted it does not require the maintenance a wood door will. Nor will it crack, split, swell or warp like wood can.
Lastly, this environmentally friendly door is made mostly from recycled material, so it is the "greenest of garage doors."
Specialty Garage Doors
In addition to the above styles, you may also consider doors that are unique and offer options to match your home's design. These doors can reflect styles from old world doors, with decorative hand-forged hardware and architectural glass options. Beautiful wood species such as mahogany, hemlock and cedar, are available or you may choose contemporary and modern styles in materials such as aluminum, glass or a decorative iron door like the one pictured here. Specialty garage doors offer many architectural styles to complement your home's design. Call us now to learn more about what's possible and get a free estimate on your new garage door.
#2 - Warranty – How Well Do I Understand It?
Nearly every garage door comes with a warranty of some kind. Many companies claim they have a lifetime warranty but don't really cover everything. Garage doors have lots of parts: rollers, cables, springs, door panels, etc. Make sure the warranty covers those parts. When you read the fine print, you may also find that the warranty does not cover warping, splitting, cracking, denting, or rusting. It also may limit parts to one year. When shopping you want to make sure you are comparing apples to apples.
At Precision Garage Door of Birmingham we offer a Lifetime Warranty you can count on.
# 3 - Choose the Best Company to Use
Unfortunately, the garage door industry is under-regulated, so there are many fly-by-night companies that are under-insured or not insured at all. These types of companies may not be around to fulfill their warranties or back up their work. Before choosing a garage door company, do some research and ensure the company you hire:
Carries all necessary insurance; don't hire without insurance including workmen's comp. You're risking your financial well-being.
Provides warranties on both materials and labor of your garage door.
Has uniformed technicians in clean trucks with their logo painted on the side. Fly-by-night companies need to change their name every few months and may not invest in these things.
Is courteous and professional looking and acting.
Will supply references from previous customers when asked.
Is a member of The Better Business Bureau & International Door Association (IDA)
