Purchasing a new garage door will take a big bite out of your home or business improvement budget and with so many options to choose from, consumers can be overwhelmed with choices. Fort Worth Garage Door Repair experts can help you narrow down the list and select a residential or commercial garage door that meets your specific needs and budget. When choosing a commercial garage door, security and durability are usually the two most important factors to consider. The most popular choices for commercial doors are 16, 20 or 24-gauge steel construction, with or without insulation added for better temperature control. Purchasing a door with a polyester paint finish that has been baked on provides years of protection against the elements and minimizes the maintenance needed to retain appearance. Commercial door installations feature industrial strength tracks and hardware made of durable galvanized steel.

Garage door installation and aesthetics

Homeowners are typically more concerned with aesthetics when choosing a garage door. The door must match the architectural style of the house or the homeowner runs the risk of decreasing curb appeal, which can have a negative effect on property value. Steel doors are affordable, with 24-guage material the most popular because it does not dent as easily as aluminum, which is the cheapest option. Steel-backed doors have a rigid steel frame and feature composite panels that mimic other materials, including wood.

Wooden Garage Door Installment

Wood is unsurpassed in beauty but more expensive to purchase and maintain. Without regular painting or staining, the material ages quickly and will fade, paint and peel. The versatility of wood makes it the most popular choice for homeowners who order custom garage doors. Fabricators can build doors to fit any size opening and custom doors may be the only option for door openings that are unusual shapes.

Contemporary designs

These include lightweight aluminum doors with multiple windows that allow in plenty of natural light. Aluminum is low maintenance and resistant to corrosion. The lighter weight is easier on the opener and the rest of the components of the operating system. Our installers will use galvanized fixtures and hinges to match the contemporary look.

Insulation in an important factor when installing a garage door

Insulated doors have a core layer of polyurethane or polystyrene to control heat transfer through the door. The level of insulation offered by the door is expressed as the R-value. Higher R-value doors provide more insulation than doors with low R-values. A weather seal running along the bottom edge of the door cushions the door when it closes and prevents rain and wind from entering through spaces between the door and the floor.

Classic appearance

Carriage house style doors combine the classic appearance of swing-out doors with modern overhead operating technology. Decorative hardware adds to the appearance making this style of door a good choice if you want a stylish door as a focal point for your home’s façade. Regardless of what style door you choose, Fort Worth Garage Door Repair can see your project through design and installation.
