Things to consider when shopping for a new garage door:


Price is always an important factor, but it’s not the only factor. It’s always important to know your budget when looking into any major purchase. Make sure to have a realistic range to work within that includes both a high-end and even a low-end amount you are willing to spend.


Trying to decide on a look that best fits your home is probably going to be the hardest decision of all. If you’ve set a budget, it will help to narrow down some choices. Looking at garage doors in your alley and neighborhood is a great way to give you ideas and perspective. Our technicians are always happy to explain options and are happy to provide recommendations and insight.


The most common and readily available colors are:

  • White, Brown, Sandstone, Almond, Grey, Forest Green, and Desert Tan.

We can also have most doors finished with a high-quality powder coat in nearly any imaginable color.

Insulation and R. Value:

Once you’ve decided on a style of door, the next step is deciding if you want the door to be insulated or not. With drastic climate changes in most of the country, it is typically a good idea to insulate a garage door to help keep some sort of temperature control within your garage. If your garage is attached to your home, an insulated door will almost always reduce your heating and cooling costs. Upgrading to an insulated door may pay for itself in energy savings alone.

Insulation rating / R-value:

Most styles of residential garage doors are available in 4 different levels insulation value / R-value.

A door with a high R-value will:

  • Regulate the temperature of your garage and home, reducing your heating and cooling costs (if you have an attached garage)
  • Dampen noise / sound and can make your home quieter and more protected from noises outside.
  • Generally be more durable, dent resistant, quiet when operating, and secure than doors with lower R-value ratings.

The 4 common levels of door quality / R-value are:

  • Non-insulated (least expensive) R-0
  • Vinyl-backed insulated.
  • Steel-backed insulated.
  • Thermal steel-backed insulated.(most expensive)

Reliability / Life expectancy:

  • Most people are not aware that many of the mechanical components of a garage door (Springs, Rollers, Hinges, Bearings, etc..) have a predictable and calculable life expectancy.
  • All of the doors we install will include high quality hardware for the quietest, smoothest, and most reliable operation.
  • Most of the doors we sell come standard hardware that is rated for 2.5 times the life expectancy of normal hardware.
  • We want our customers to think of us every time their door successfully opens or closes without a single squeak!


Maintenance is generally minimal if you have a steel or fiberglass door. No door is absolutely maintenance-free however. All steel doors we sell include a lifetime warranty against rust and corrosion.

Wood garage doors need to be treated and stained every few years to prevent them from soaking up moisture, fading, rotting, and de-laminating.

We suggest having your garage door professionally tuned, balanced and oiled at least once every two years. Scheduling a maintenance visit will enable us to test all safety and reversing devices and spot potential problems before they happen. A carefully tuned and well maintained door should run nearly silently and should run reliably on the hottest and coldest days of the season.
