New Garage Door: What to Consider?

Homeowners with garages understand the benefit of having this space to protect their vehicles, store their tools and seasonal decorations, and complete their favorite hobbies or work on home improvement projects.

Speaking of home improvement projects, you may want to consider investing in a new garage door, especially if the existing entry is damaged or aging. A malfunctioning door that cannot cost-effectively be fixed should also be replaced.

There are many options for materials, designs, insulation, and optional features that can make deciding on the best new garage door for your home challenging. That is why contacting a repair professional is ideal; they can advise and recommend popular choices.

Here are some of the things to consider when purchasing a new garage door.


The most popular material options for garage doors include steel, aluminum, wood, and full-view (aluminum and glass). There are advantages and disadvantages associated with each, and that is where a repair professional’s expertise could be of benefit. A replacement, particularly one made from high-tensile strength steel, is reported to have a 96.1 percent return on investment (ROI) in mountain states.


The garage door is usually the first thing most people see, and therefore, can contribute or distract from your home’s curb appeal. After you’ve selected a material, it’s time to consider the different styles that will complement the architecture of your home, boosting curb appeal. Design options include traditional raised-panels, carriage house, and contemporary garage doors.


Optional features include:

  • Windows to allow natural light to flood the space.
  • High-cycle torsion springs that double the number of cycles from 10,000 to 20,000.
  • Smart garage door openers that allow you to remotely monitor and operate the door.

Choosing an insulated door can also help reduce heating and cooling costs, improve occupant comfort and save you money, along with reducing the transfer of sound. There are different R-values available offering varying levels of thermal resistance.
