Garage doors typically make up about 30% of the home’s front and are the primary entrance to most homes. You can easily get overwhelmed with all the choices garage door manufactures provide; it helps to identify your budget, lifestyle, and design desires.
Budget will often times limit your options; but with the market’s demand for a greater variety, most styles are accessible for any price range. Make sure you take in account your lifestyle needs to know where your priorities lie when creating your budget. Do you spend lots of time in your garage? Do you have children? Is your garage attached to the house? These questions will help you determine the material you need for your garage door to be durable and enjoyable. If your garage is attached or you spend a decent amount of time in your garage, insulation will be key. If you have children, a thick-gauged steel door might be desirable as it can withstand bikes, balls, or anything that could cause a minor dent.
