Garages Doors, Openers

Fully functional, attractive and economical garage doors and garage door openers are available for you in a variety of sizes, styles, materials and colors. There are also considerable differences in pricing to think about. You can select from stock garage doors that offer no windows or fancy design, or you can choose the finest architecturally designed garage doors constructed from beautiful natural woods, optimal quality insulation and crystal clear, tempered glass panes. It's all about what you want - and what are willing to spend.

The three standard quality levels of garage doors:

Stock garage doors:

You can find bargain-priced stock garage doors that will perform adequately for you for a given time. However, you need to be aware that many of these basic door styles serve only to create a barrier of entry to your garage. There will be no fancy panel designs, no glass and most likely, very little, if any insulation. There are low, medium and high quality levels for stock garage doors. The differences between these levels are determined by the quality of materials and insulation levels you select. In general, you can expect to pay at least $400 for a stock garage door without installation.

Semi-custom garage doors:

Semi-custom garage doors offer purchasers increased options concerning panel styles, design standards and glass inserts. In general, there are more types of wood available as well as more efficient insulation, paint primer and standard glass panes included. Steel doors are also available for considerably less money. You can expect to pay anywhere from $1400 up to $2900, excluding installation charges for a mid-quality wood garage door. Mid quality steel garage doors will cost you anywhere from $500 to $1300 excluding installation fees.

Custom garage doors:

These top of the line garage doors offer you loads of choices in custom finishes, colors, intricate panel designs, high-quality insulation, panel faces with grooves and optimal quality materials. Custom garage doors offer a longer standard guarantee than lower-end garage doors do. Generally, a custom garage door will offer a five year guarantee. Expect to pay at least $3000 plus the fees associated with installation. While that may sound expensive, these are really nice doors.

Garage door opener installation and servicing:

The nicest garage door on the planet is quite a burden without having a device for hands-free operation. It doesn't take too many times of trying to heave up and heavy garage door before you realize the necessity of a properly functioning garage door opener. Well worth the cost, modern garage door openers come in a variety of power ratings, styles and designs.
