Why Garage Door Replacement is Important
The property owner called in with a request for a garage door replacement. Garage doors are the most commonly used entry to homes, and most homeowners use their garages as main points of entry to homes. We dispatched one of our team members to inspect the garage and advise the owner on what needed to be done.
Some things that can go wrong with your garage are failing springs or cables, which will prevent your door from opening or closing properly. Another common issue is when an auto repair shop uses an improper type of lubricant on the tracks, causing them to wear down faster than normal.
Replacing your garage door is important when you see that it is out of date. A new garage door can provide better protection and improved home security, also a much better appearance thus increasing your home's value. In addition, it provides better insulation and utility. And lastly, less maintenance, since newer models are better built to withstand the elements just like the one we installed for our client.
Types of Garage Door Replacement Options
Before Unity Garage Door began the installation, we inspected the existing garage door and saw that it was not in good condition due to wear and tear and had lost its visual appeal over time. The homeowner wanted something new and exciting but preferred minimal maintenance materials. After taking down all measurements, our technician presented the customer with three different options, each with its own set of benefits. Although there were 6 types of applicable garage doors, these 3 were the most suitable for our client’s home.
Slide to the Side Garage Door
The first option was a slide to the side garage door. Slide to the side garage doors slide from a central track, parallel with one wall of the attached structure. These were among the first operating styles and are still used in low-ceilinged garages. They are mounted on flexible tracks that allow them to work with slight slopes in the floor or ceiling. Slide-to-side doors do not require balancing springs and have a built-in retractable motor for automated operation—all without requiring one of those ceiling operators you see nowadays. Although, since our client’s headroom in his garage is not substantial, he opted not to go with this option.
Side-Hinged Garage Door
The second option was a side-hinged garage door. Side-hinged garage doors are hinged on either side of the opening; they resemble large barn doors and are made of wood or galvanized steel. Demand for these classic doors has risen recently, especially among homeowners who have limited headroom or obstructions in their garages. Pre-hung steel frames—as well as conversion arms that automate the process of opening and closing them—are available if you prefer to buy rather than build. Although it is beneficial for his limited headroom garage, he wanted to convert it into an automatic one, which is more costly, thus he opted for the third option.
Sectional Garage Door
The third option was our client’s choice. A sectional garage door is a type of door made up of multiple panels connected by hinges, with each panel rolling along tracks at the top and bottom as it opens or closes. These doors are constructed from steel, require little maintenance, and can be customized with window inserts, hardware, and textures. They can be insulated or not insulated depending on the customer’s choice.
