3 Steps To Finding The Perfect Garage Door For You!
- Pick The Garage Door That Best Fits Your Needs
- Find The Right Color & Style
- Choose The Right Company & Warranty
#1: Pick The Garage Door That Fits Your Needs
Garage doors are available in many different types of materials. Choose the one that best fits your needs. Here's a run-down.
Steel Garage Doors
Steel garage doors are the most popular. Steel is the most widely used material for garage doors today because of its durability and economy.
Steel will look great forever and is just about maintenance-free.
Additionally, they have the advantage of being the least expensive garage door you can buy.
If you're looking to add even more appeal to your home, a Steel Door in Carriage Style like the one above might be just what you're looking for...
Wood Carriage House Doors
Radically beautify your home with wood carriage house doors.
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 most important 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!
Custom Garage Doors are available in any size, and Precision will be happy to work with your architect.
Wood Composite Garage Doors
Wood composite doors come primed and painted with a limited lifetime warranty. This environmentally friendly door is made mostly from recycled material and is crack-proof, split-proof, and quiet. This door is insulated, and the wood grain is properly registered so that the door has the elegance of wood. Once the wood-composite door is painted, it requires a minimum amount of maintenance. Wood composite garage doors are an excellent choice when you want your garage door paint color to match your home, window shutters, etc.
Vinyl Garage Doors
Vinyl garage doors are maintenance-free. They are scratch-resistant and will not dent, rust, or crack. They are insulated and work quietly. The wood grain is properly registered so that the door has the appearance of wood. A vinyl door is available in four colors and never needs repainting. On occasion, vinyl doors are not readily available. They may need to be ordered from the factory.

#3 - Choose the Best Company to Use
Unfortunately, the garage door industry is under-regulated, so there are many fly-by-night companies that are under-insured or not insured at all and will not be around to fulfill their warranties or back up their work. Before choosing a garage door company, do some research and ensure the company you hire:
- Carries all necessary insurance and doesn't hire without insurance including workmen's comp. You're risking your financial well-being.
- Provides warranties on both materials and labor of your garage door.
- Has uniformed technicians in clean trucks with the logo painted on the side. Fly-by-night companies need to change their name every few months and so will not invest in these things.
- Is courteous and professional looking and acting.
- Will supply references from previous customers when asked.
- Is a member of The Better Business Bureau & International Door Association (IDA).
Choose a company that provides training for their technicians. The best way to avoid problems is to opt for experts. Every year, there are more accidents related to garage doors than to lawn mowers and snow blowers combined. You can avoid future garage door accidents when the technician is properly trained in safety procedures.
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 really cover everything. Garage doors have lots of parts: rollers, cables, springs, door panels, etc. Make sure the warranty covers those parts. When you read the fine print, you may also find that the warranty does not cover warping, splitting, cracking, denting, or rusting. It also may limit parts to one year. When shopping you want to make sure you are comparing apples to apples.
