What to Consider When Choosing the Right Garage Doors for Your Home

by Guest on Apr 14, 2010

Garage doors can cover a huge amount space of the front of your home. To make sure that you choose garage doors which complement your home and are practical for your requirements then check out our tips below.

Style of Garage Doors

The materials used for garage doors can complement a traditional home, for example if you live in a distinctive period style home such as a Tudor property, then timber garage doors would be the best design option. Traditional style garage doors can also have a modern twist such as replica carriage doors which have a period-look but can work well with new constructions and older houses. If you want practicality over style then choosing a raised-panel door is a safe choice. Raised-panel doors are the standard in garage doors and their popularity means they come in plenty of different materials and finishes. Most garage doors are available in steel, wood and glass reinforced polyester so it’s important to consider the material and finish you require as well as the overall look and style of your garage doors.

Light

If you simply use your garage for about five minutes a day to park your car then natural light won’t be top of your list when choosing garage doors. However, if you use your garage space as a workshop then choosing garage doors which let in natural light will allow you to switch the light off and work with the door closed in cooler weather.

Safety

The safety of garage doors is a key point as expensive belongings such as tools (and not to mention cars and bikes) are often kept in garages. If your garage doors are poorly installed then they can be a green light for thieves to gain access. If your garage forms part of your house then ensuring your garage doors are secure is even more important as they should be as secure as your front door and kept locked at all times. If you have children or pets living in your home then their safety is vital when it comes to choosing doors for your garage. Make sure you look at including safety springs, pivot arms and anti-drop mechanisms so no one is injured by the garage doors.

Automatic Garage Doors

It may seem like a luxurious option to install garage doors which glide open at the touch of a remote but with rainy weather all year round in this country it might be a wise choice. Most types of garage doors can be fitted with automatic opening so it’s really down to your budget and whether they’re right for you.

Once you decide on the right garage doors after considering all the points above, make sure you ask a professional company to install the doors for you so you can have peace of mind that they’re safe, secure and right for your home.
