A garage door is a must-have in any home with a garage. Whether you are doing a new build, are looking to update the look of your home, or are doing major repair, here are 3 tips when installing garage doors.
- Hire a professional. If you Google “installing garage doors” you will find a number of YouTube and blog articles with instructions on how to install garage doors. If you have extensive experience with projects of this type, this could be a great option. However, if you don’t, you are likely to send up spending a significant amount on tools and other equipment as well as investing many hours of your own time. Most often, it ends up being more cost-effective to hire the job out. Additionally, hiring a professional ensures that your install job is done properly and is up-to-date on all necessary safety measures.
- Shop around for preferred style and features. Garage doors these days have many high-style and high-efficiency options. Shop around to find garage doors that fit your unique style and needs. Garage door options that we offer at the Overhead Door Company of Charleston are frameless glass, modern aluminum, elegant wood, impression steel, Thermacore® insulated, swing-open wood, impression fiberglass, traditional steel, vinyl skin exterior, and Thermacore® wind load to name only a few.
- Don’t forget about customer service. If you are hiring a professional to install your garage doors, be sure you hire a company with great customer service. Look at their maintenance and repair programs, as well as options for after-hours service. In the event you need an immediate repair on your garage doors, you want a company that will be there quickly and get the job done right.
