Are you feeling overwhelmed by the task of selecting a new garage door? We don’t blame you! There are many things to know and choices to make when replacing an old garage door. Lucky for you, we’ve simplified the process, so you can enjoy your journey to a new door. Did we mention that we work with the best-in-class garage door manufacturers and offer large selections of brands, styles, materials, and finishes to choose from? Well, we do! So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get the garage door installation process started!
Let's start with the size of your garage door/s
Garage doors come in various standard sizes and could also be custom-made to fit any opening. Most residential homes have either a single-car or a double-car garage. Most single-car garage doors range from 8′ to 10′ wide, while the standard double-car garages range from 16′ to 18′. The most popular height for a garage door is between 7′ and 8′. Regardless of the size of your space, our residential garage door replacement technicians can fit your garage with a new door
Selecting the garage door material
In general, you can choose from one of six different materials for your garage door. Each one has its ups and downs. Keep in mind, the insulation of your garage door is heavily impacted by your material choice. If you’re not sure which one is right for your home, our garage door installers can help narrow down your options.
An excellent and affordable choice for the majority of homeowners and business owners. Steel is strong, durable, and hard to dent. With proper insulation, steel garage doors can be outfitted to withstand even the strongest Chicago storms.
Similar to steel with two major differences: easier to dent, but less prone to rust.
Popular wood types for garage doors include cedar, redwood, and fir. Generally, wood garage doors are paneled, which prevents warping (garage doors are inevitably exposed to the elements on a frequent basis). Wood garage doors are beautiful!
Slightly cheaper than wood, wood composite looks very similar to real wood, and in many cases insulates better than actual wood does, too. It’s a popular choice for homeowners who want a grandiose look, but on a budget.
Fiberglass garage door are strong. There is very little chance of denting, cracking, or rusting. However, in very rare cases, if the impact force is strong enough, fiberglass garage doors may break entirely.
Last but certainly not least, vinyl is a popular choice for homeowners, especially those with little kids! They are similar to fiberglass in that they are very difficult to damage, but unlike fiberglass garage doors, vinyl ones come in a wide variety of colors to match the existing color scheme of your property.
Choosing a garage door type
Once you’re set on the material of your garage door, the next step in the installation is picking the right type of garage door. You can choose from sectional, roller, retractable, and canopy garage doors.
Sectional garage doors are the classic design. They provide the most drive-thru width of any garage door type, which makes them ideal for most homeowners. You’re never trying to squeeze into your garage and worrying that you’re about to clip your mirror.
Roller garage doors are interesting in that the garage door does not slide to the top of your garage ceiling. Instead, the door rolls around itself, similar to a rolled-up yoga mat, which provides a very unique look.
Retractable garage doors are easy to install, which is a plus. However, the downside of retractable garage doors is that vehicles must be parked at least a few feet away from them (due to the mechanics of how the door actually opens). If you’re cramped on space, choose a different type of garage door.
Canopy garage doors are similar to retractable garage doors, except the door does not “swing” out as much, meaning a vehicle can be parked very close to the garage door without issue. However, canopy garage doors are not the most modern design, which means they don’t work well with automatic solutions like garage door openers. That being said, if you plan on opening the garage door manually, a canopy garage door might work for you.
Now the fun begin... let's select the style and color
Garage doors are created in many different styles and are available in a variety of colors. Our team carries samples of most garage door styles, so you can see them, feel them, and select your favorite style and color within the comfort of your home.
Many options are available for garage doors — window sections, decorative hardware and packages, security features, and smart garage door options to name a few. Our garage door installation experts will be happy to walk you through all the options to select the ones that best fit your needs.
Last but not least, let's select the brand
Now that you’ve completed the previous steps, it’s time to decide on the brand. We proudly work with some of the most popular garage door manufacturers around, including Safe-Way Garage Doors, C.H.I. Overhead Doors, and Haas Door.
