7 Steps to a New Garage Door

We want to help you be one among our many happy customers who we have had the pleasure of working with to install a new garage door for their home.

We understand that you may not be aware of the many options that are available when having a new garage door installed.  Many homeowners have felt this way, especially since this is a purchase they do not make too often – when properly maintained, garage doors can sometimes last for more than a decade. 

Our customers have found that when we walked them through a few simple steps, they were able to get exactly what they wanted and loved their new garage door.  

So tell us, how can we help you?

Lets get started!

Buying a new garage door is definitely a huge decision. We aim to make the process smooth and painless.

Our customers also felt this was exciting, knowing how much better their home will look!

Here are the 7 steps we have found to work:

  1. Look at some great pictures to get some ideas
  2. Look at the designs of the panels to choose from and narrow things down
  3. Decide if you would like some windows by looking at the choices available
  4. Choose 2-3 colors.  Some colors are not available in all models.
  5. Think about whether you need an insulated garage door
  6. Do you need a new garage door opener?  Do you have any questions about garage door operators that we can help with?
