If the garage door in your Memphis, Tennessee, home has seen better days, you may need to consider purchasing a new one. And if it’s been a while since you shopped for garage doors, you may be a bit overwhelmed by the numerous features and design options that are available. Just keep in mind a few things, and you will be sure to make the right garage door purchase for your home.
- Energy efficiency – Today’s garage doors are available with varying degrees of insulation to suit your needs. For example, if your garage is only used to park your car, you may need limited insulation because temperatures and noise reduction may not be that important to you. However, if that space is used for multiple purposes, say a rec room, laundry room, or workroom, you may wish to increase the insulation in your garage door to help keep the garage at comfortable temperatures and to reduce the amount of distracting outside noise that can penetrate the door.
- Maintenance – You will find garage doors engineered out of numerous materials, from durable aluminum to classic wood. Just remember that while all garage doors require a little maintenance from time to time, wood doors will require periodic staining and painting, while aluminum doors are virtually maintenance-free.
- Appearance – Keeping in mind that your garage door may account for as much as 30 percent of your home’s façade, you want to make sure you find one that will complement your home, display your personal sense of style, and stay within you budget. You will find garage doors that can accommodate all three requirements, with design options that include numerous colors, decorative hardware, and optional windows or light panels.
