The Expert’s Tips: What to consider when buying a garage door.

How to buy a garage door

Our extensive experience in the manufacturing, installation and automation of garage doors positions us to assist our clients in the important decision of how to select a garage door.  Valuable tips from our experience:

Appearance matters

  • The modern home is designed for entry directly from the garage into the home and therefore your garage area should be considered with equal importance during the phases of designing your home.
  • It is important to bear in mind that a garage door should complement the theme of your home.  A garage door design that detracts from the style of your new home will reduce its the curb appeal.
  • There are various designs and materials to choose from – we can help you select a design and finish that will enhance your home.
  • Although Meranti is the standard timber used for manufacture of doors, exotic timbers such as Iroko, Larch, Mahogany and Western Red Cedar offer magnificent alternatives.

Consider Practicality

  • Domestic doors are generally available in 3 types:  Roll up, Tip up or sectional overhead.
  • Most doors can be automated, but consideration should be taken regarding the different systems available and the solution that would best suit your needs.
  • Weather must be considered as a tip up or roll up garage door challenged by strong wind will not function correctly.  We are positioned to advise you on the best solution taking weather challenges into account.

Support your Lifestyle

  • It is important that your choice of door suits your lifestyle and space constraints. The available space required to operate the garage is critical as certain allowances are essential.  This will determine the type of door that will operate optimally in the available space.
  • Your garage door protects expensive assets – your motor vehicles, and leisure or recreational equipment.
