Garage Door Replacement Columbus. Ohio
Garage Door Replacement
Depending on your situation, replacing your garage door may be optional or it may be mandatory. That’s because there are two main reasons to replace your garage door:
- You are investing in the beauty of your home and want to upgrade to a style that is more attractive.
- Your garage door has sustained such serious damage that repair is impossible (or more expensive than replacement).
Factors to consider
If you’ve never had to select a new garage door for your Columbus, OH home or business, you may be surprised to learn how many elements there are to think about before you pull out your credit card and make the purchase.
Obviously, we supply doors from companies that we know and trust. You won’t go wrong choosing from our inventory. If you’re really curious about what else is out there, though, here are just a few things you will want to consider.
For a normal home in Columbus, OH, wood and steel garage doors are usually your best bet (and are what we recommend). They provide the best overall value and have worthwhile visual qualities.
Though wood and steel doors are the most popular varieties, other garage door materials include:
Aluminum is lightweight, but susceptible to dents. Fiberglass provides customization options, but yellows and cracks over time. Vinyl’s strength makes it a good option for parents, but design options are not too impressive. Perform a little more research if you want, but we suggest sticking to wood or steel.
Garage doors come in a variety of colors and styles. Deciding which is the best fit for your specific home may require a sit-down conversation with your spouse where you can figure out what you like best. If you get to make the decision on your own, pick a nice color and – most importantly – decide how many (if any) windows you want.
Windows have visual appeal for some, but are also a matter of practicality if you plan on spending more than a minute at a time in your garage.
Not all doors are created equal. Your home may require certain add-ons that will need to be planned for as you process your budget.
More often than not, the biggest factor will be price. If you are purchasing a replacement garage door out of necessity, you may not have the available funds to pick the door you really want. If that’s the case, we would be happy to make suggestions that best suit your budget.
One useful thing to remember, though, is that garage door replacement does have a small impact on your home’s overall value. Sometimes, a replacement can increase the home’s value by up to 90% of the door’s purchase price. Not too shabby.
Getting the most out of your new door
When we install your beautiful new door, we promise that your setup is prepared to last. Even so, cold Columbus winters require you take a few extra steps to ensure that you’re not forced into purchasing another door sooner than you would like.
Provide regular maintenance (such as lubrication) and have us come out and take a look if things get squeaky, your springs appear damaged, or materials get stuck in the track.
