3 Things You Need To Know Before
Buying a Garage Door
1. Which Is The Best Garage Door?
We are often asked this question and the simple answer is the best garage door is the one that most closely meets your needs. You should choose a garage door manufactured by a quality company with a good reputation and installed by a professional.
We proudly feature Precision© & Amarr® residential garage doors. We sell and professionally install these Garage Doors because they offer quality, durability, and warranties that are superior in the industry.
Steel Garage Doors
Steel is the most popular material used for garage doors today because of its durability. Steel will look great forever and is virtually maintenance-free. It also has the advantage of being the least expensive garage door you can buy. If you're looking to add even more curb appeal, a Steel Door in Carriage Style like the one pictured, might be just what you're looking for...
Wood Carriage House Doors
Radically beautify your home with wood carriage house doors. These doors increase the curb appeal of your home so much that real estate studies have shown they increase the value of your house. But that's not the real reason to have them... the real reason is just how much you'll love the way the exterior of your home looks... and if the neighbors are a little jealous, well, that just can't be helped.
Custom Garage Doors
In addition to the above styles, you may also consider doors that are unique and offer options to match your home's design. These doors can reflect styles from old world doors, with decorative hand-forged hardware and architectural glass options. They can be customized with gorgeous woods such as mahogany, hemlock and cedar; to contemporary and modern styles in materials such as copper, aluminum and iron. Precision will work with homeowners, architects and designers to help match your Garage Door to your home's unique style.
Precision offers a large selection of garage doors in many styles and panel designs. Call us now and get a free quote on any style of garage door or try our Garage Door Designer.
2. Insulation- How Well Do I Understand It?
Insulation improves the quality of a garage door in 2 ways. First, it improves the strength and durability of the garage door. Without insulation it will feel like a tin can. However, when insulated it is solid. This prevents dents and creases which quickly rust and cause the garage door look to unattractive.
The second reason people insulate the door is to provide energy efficiency. How energy efficient is measured r-value. R-value is a rating system used in the building and construction industry. Insulated garage doors' r-values range between 8 and 32. The value of your home is around 14 to 16. So it makes sense to shoot for that value when purchasing a garage door.
3. Decide Which Garage Door Company to Buy From?
Unfortunately in Minneapolis & St.Paul, the garage door industry is not strictly monitored. There are many fly-by-night companies that are not adequately insured and do not need to stand by their work because they won't exist in 6 months. When you buy a new door look for a company that:
- Carries the necessary insurance
- Provides warranties on the parts and labor of your new garage door
- Technicians that are well trained and uniformed
- Trucks that are clean and clearly indicate the name of the company (Fly-by-night companies that change their name every 6 mos., will not typically invest in uniforms or paint the company's logo on the truck.)
- You should expect professionalism and courtesy at all times
- Supplies references from previous customers upon request.
