What’s the best garage door for your home?

The best garage door really depends on your home, budget, and style. Choosing the right door or creating a custom garage door can dramatically enhance your home’s appearance and make you smile every time you arrive home for years to come.

We’ve created a list of the different types of garage doors, including custom garage doors, to help give you a better idea of what may suit your home the best. If you’re looking at Precision for a new garage door, we encourage you to look at this list before your consultation. Our technician will be able to measure your door, help you pick the right door style for your home and give you a firm price quote, free of charge.

Custom Garage Doors
You may consider doors that are unique and offer options to match your home’s design. These doors can reflect styles from the old world, with decorative hand-forged hardware and architectural glass options. They also can be made from specialty materials, including Clearview aluminum, which resembles glass or fiberglass. Custom can also refer to the size if you have an opening that is non-standard. (Standard size is about 8 feet wide by 7 feet tall for a single; 16 feet by 7 feet for a double.) If this is the case, call us and we’ll come out, measure at no charge, and give you a price quote on a custom door to fit your space.

Steel Garage Doors
Steel is the most popular material used for garage doors today because of its durability. Steel will look great for a long time and is virtually maintenance-free. It also has the advantage of being the least expensive garage door. Steel doors are usually priced according to how well they’re insulated. More insulation means the door will be sturdier and more dent resistant. While some other companies market a vinyl-back door as ideal for insulation, our “sandwich” steel garage doors (which utilize a two-inch layer of insulation between two steel panels) provide better insulation for your garage.

Fiberglass Garage Doors
These garage doors are a very popular option and are installed on many newly constructed homes. Fiberglass is a strong, durable material that is lightweight and incredibly efficient.

Aluminum Garage Doors
Each of our beautiful aluminum doors are custom-made for each customer based on their unique needs and budget. We know that all homes aren’t the same, so it only makes sense that you need a custom aluminum replacement door. These doors are designed to be very lightweight and easy to maintain. They’re incredibly weather-resistant and are guaranteed to last for many years to come.

Wood Doors
Wooden garage doors look beautiful when they’re in good shape. They are, however, the most difficult to maintain since they’re made of real wood. Our garage door technicians are trained in the best ways to maintain wood doors so that they’ll last for years to come.
