How to pick the right garage door for your home
Today's garage door market offers more variety than past designs that typically featured raised panels, rows of windows and a single, solid color. Although a wide selection makes customization easier, it also makes choosing the right door harder. Given that the wrong door can decrease your home's value and cause costly repairs, use this information to guide you:
- Consider carefully. Pick a garage door that matches your home's exterior, looks great from close up and far away, and fits your personal tastes. For example, you can find both traditional lift and sliding barn door designs.
- Think long-term. Choose a durable option that can handle any weather scenario and requires little maintenance. To reduce lighting costs, consider a door that features windows. To reduce heating costs, consider an insulated design.
- Use comparison tools. With a comparison website or app, you can upload a current photo of your home's exterior and drag different styles to cover the existing door(s) or new garage door opening.
