Garage Door Installation – Buying Guide

Got confused looking for a new garage door? We don’t blame you!  There are many things to know and choices to make when looking for a new garage door.  Lucky for you, we’ve simplified the process for you so you can enjoy your journey to a new door.  Did we mentioned – we work with best in class garage door manufacturers and offer large selections of brands, styles, materials and finishes to choose from.

Let's start with the size of your garage door/s

Garage doors comes in various standard sizes and could also be custom made to fit any opening size.  Most residential homes have either a single car, a double car, or a combination of the two.  Most single-car garage doors range from 8′ to 10′ wide and most double-car range from 16′ to 18′. The most popular height for a garage door is between 7′ and 8′.

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.

Steel

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.

Aluminum

Similar to steel with two major differences: easier to dent, but less prone to rust.

Wood

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!

Wood Composite

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

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.

Vinyl

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 the type for your new door

Once you’re set on the material of your garage door, the next step in installation is picking the right type of garage door.

Sectional

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

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

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

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.
