The damage isn’t too bad; it’s mostly just an unsightly dent. However, you soon notice that the impact has caused a gap between the bottom of the door and the asphalt. And you dread to think of all of the little critters that would love to scurry under that gap to live in your nice, climate controlled garage. You begin to think to yourself, “Well, that door was pretty old anyway; I could probably stand to purchase a new one.” But there are a few things you may want to consider before just hopping down to the hardware store and choosing any one.
When it comes to choosing a garage door, there are a number of different options. As far as material, you will likely choose between a wooden door, an aluminum door, or a fiberglass door. Before you go about choosing from those styles, there are a number of questions you might ask yourself. First, what type of material was your old garage door made from, and were you satisfied with it? Next, you might want to consider which material is going to be most aesthetically pleasing in comparison to the rest of your house. And finally (and this is the ugly one), how much money are you willing to spend.
When it comes down to it, it’s all about your personal and financial preference. There is no shortage of options when it comes to choosing from the variety of garage doors made available to consumers.
