What to think about when you’re ready to replace your garage door
Spring has arrived in Portland, and the weather is warming up. As a result, many homeowners are starting to think about replacing their garage door. Are you looking to improve the curb appeal of your home? Or is it simply a home improvement project you’ve always wanted to do but kept putting off? Now is the time to start looking at your options. Customers often ask us what they should think about when they are ready to replace their garage door.
A common question we get from our homeowners is; Where do I start?
We recommend that you first think about what you want to see when you pull up to your home everyday. Are you looking for something that adds character to your home, or something more traditional? Are you interested in windows to let in natural light? If you’re looking to add some character, we recommend a Carriage House Style or a striking glass and aluminum door. Either is a great way to create a bold sense of style to your home. If you’re looking for something more traditional, we have a great selection of doors in a variety of colors and finishes to create the perfect look for you. Some of our favorite brands are Clopay, CHI, and Northwest Doors.
Think about is how you use your garage.
The second thing we suggest you think about is; “What do I do in my garage?” Do you park your cars inside, or like many of us, do the cars live in the driveway and the stuff lives in the garage? If you have a workshop, or your laundry is in the garage, you might want to consider a garage door with a higher insulation value. It will help regulate the temperature in your garage keeping it cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
The easiest question we’re able to answer is “What do I do first?”
We start the door replacement process by scheduling a convenient time for a door specialist to take measurements. He will go over what you’re looking to accomplish with your new door, make a recommendation and get a bid started for you.
