Did you know 71% of garage doors are used every day?
That’s why it is so important to make sure you choose the garage door to fit not only the style of home but also your needs.

It’s funny, when thinking about a garage door, you don’t always realize the significance of making sure you choose the perfect style to go with the rest of the aesthetics of your house. You also might not realize there are many styles and types of garage doors to choose from.

Berry Door & Window knows the many choices you must make when deciding on a garage door, from style and insulation to the type of windows that will be on your garage door.

Here are 5 factors to consider when purchasing your new garage door.

Cost
Before making any investment, know the budget you have to spend. Contrary to what you might believe, garage doors do not have to be a costly purchase.

Material
There are several types of material you can choose from when choosing your new garage door. Whichever material you decide on, make sure it not only enhances the exterior look of your home, but also, know the longevity and maintenance required for that type of material.

Style
Your garage door can drastically affect your home’s curb appeal, so no matter what type of material you choose, make sure the material and style matches the rest of your home. When deciding on the style of your garage door, keep in mind you also need to consider the additional features of a garage door, like: windows, panel embossment and decorative hardware accents.

Insulation
You can decide whether or not you want your garage door to be insulated. If your garage walls aren’t finished then you may find it unnecessary to purchase an insulated garage door. However, an insulated garage door will keep your garage above freezing during the cold winter days. Having an insulated garage door also makes the door a little bit sturdier and provide a more finished interior look. It can also help with our next factor, noise control.

Openers
Always keep in mind, the type of garage door opener you choose can affect the amount of noise your garage door will make when being opened and closed. You will also need to decide on your horsepower. Here at Berry Door & Window we offer long-lasting durable openers in ½ horsepower and ¾ horsepower. Above all, any door opener you choose should have sensors that will stop the door from shutting if there is anything in the way.
