What Homeowners Need to Know About Garage Door Replacement
When the time comes for a garage door replacement, there are a few things you will need to consider. The first being whether your whole door needs replacing. If your garage door is damaged, it is possible to replace just the damaged part. Doing this on an overhead garage door will save you time and money.
However, if you think you need your whole garage door to be replaced, there are other factors to consider. Such as what kind of material to choose for your garage door. Garage doors come in the likes of fiberglass, wood, and steel. The material you choose will usually be based on the price and look.
Steel doors are sturdy and offer energy efficiency for garages. However, the biggest problem with these particular doors is aesthetics. While they can be painted to blend in with the rest of your home, it does not have the warmth of wooden ones. The biggest benefit of steel garage doors is their easy maintenance.
Wooden garage doors are not as common as they used to be. Old wooden doors are the biggest reason for garage doors to be replaced. They warp very easily and need to be repainted on a regular basis. Without the right maintenance, they stop rolling as smoothly on their tracks. Also, they are extremely susceptible to weather changes and do swell and contract once exposed to moisture. For the most part, the maintenance needed for wooden garage doors to work smoothly far outweighs the appeal of traditional wooden doors.
A compromise between wooden and steel garage doors will be fiberglass. Replacing garage doors with a fiberglass one is a cheaper and lasting solution. Once painted or stained, they are difficult to distinguish from their wooden counterparts, however, they have several benefits of steel. Fiberglass doors are almost free of maintenance, will not warp or contract to changing weather, and they are much more energy-efficient.
