3 Things You Need To Know Before...Buying a Garage Door
- Pick The Best Garage Door. That's the one that best fits your needs.
- Ensure you Understand the Warranty
- Choose The Right Company
1. Which Is The Best Garage Door?
Ultimately the best garage door is one most suited to your needs. We sell and professionally install garage doors in a wide range of materials and styles. Our job is to help you find the best garage door for you.
In terms of brand we proudly feature Garaga® residential overhead garage doors because the workmanship, quality and insulating features of these doors is well suited to New England weather. We also offer and stand firmly behind garage doors manufactured by Amarr® Garage Doors and General Doors Corporation®.
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 House Style like the one pictured, might be just what you're looking for...
Steel doors can be made to be very well insulated and minimize air infiltration which is really important if your garage is attached to your home.
Please call us for available R-values and additional ways our partnership with Garaga®, Amarr® & General Doors® can make your home warmer.
Aluminum Garage Doors
Aluminum Garage doors are a good choice for the demanding buyer. They offer superior insulation, a wide range of colors, and are a good choice for people who live by the ocean or other corrosive environments.
Wood Carriage House Doors
Carriage house doors can radically beautify your home. Because so much of your home's facade may be the garage itself, new garage doors can dramatically enhance the style of your home. 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.
Wood-Composite Garage Doors
are just above steel in terms of price. They come primed and ready to paint with a limited lifetime warranty. People buy wood-composite primarily for 3 reasons: because it needs to be painted it is easily customized to fit the home's color scheme. The second is that once it is painted it does not require the maintenance a wood door will. Nor will it crack, split, swell or warp like wood can. And lastly, this environmentally friendly door is made mostly from recycled material so it is the "greenest of garage doors."
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. Wood has a natural beauty, is very versatile, and operates quietly. It may be painted or stained and is available in a wide price range. If you choose a wood door, you should plan to spend some time maintaining it. Wood garage doors can be fully customized to your needs. Custom garage doors are available in any size and type of wood; including cedar, hemlock & mahogany. Custom garage doors offer many architectural styles to complement your home's design.
2.Warranty - How Well Do I Understand It?
Nearly every garage door comes with a warranty of some kind. Many companies claim they have a lifetime warranty but don't cover everything. Garage doors have many parts: rollers, cables, springs, door panels, etc. Find out what parts the warranty covers. When you read the fine print, you may find that the warranty does not cover warping, splitting, cracking, denting, or rusting and then limits parts to one year. When shopping you want to make sure you are comparing apples to apples.

3: Decide Which Garage Door Company to Buy From?
Unfortunately in Connecticut 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
Has Technicians that are well trained and uniformed
Has Trucks that are clean and clearly indicate the name of the company (Fly-by-night companies that change their name every 6 months, 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.
