Garage Doors: Your Design Options

Since a garage door is such a large feature of the exterior, new and replacement doors should stay true to a home’s style and era. Choices to be made depend on where the garage is located and how you plan to use the space; you’ll decide on construction type and material, insulation, and of course the fun part: design and accessories. Having a basic understanding before you contact a professional garage door installer will make it easier to select a door that meets your needs, fits your budget, and improves your home’s curb appeal.
