You spend countless hours picking out your tile backsplash, your kitchen countertops, paint colors, and flooring options – but how much time to you spend choosing the right type of garage door for your home? Many people are not aware of the many choices and styles that are available, yet the garage door is the largest single item in almost any home. Something this large and important should be given some serious consideration!
In all honesty, one of the first considerations any homebuyer or homeowner needs to keep in the forefront is HOA restrictions. What a pain it would be to purchase and install a garage door that did not meet the standards set forth by your HOA bylaws. Make sure to check them out before you purchase a new garage door.
Have ideas in mind of what you like before you sit down to choose a garage door. With so many options available, the choice can seem overwhelming to those who have not done their homework. Houzz and Pinterest are great sources for easy browsing of garage door styles. Windows? Carriage style? Accent colors or panels? These are just a few of the options available, and they can be mind-boggling when you are not aware that these were even options to begin with!
Keep security in mind when choosing the right type of garage door for your home. While windows can be great accessories to your garage door, these also give easy access to burglars or thieves who want to see what their options are before breaking in. Also, doors should not be able to be easily pried open. A garage door needs to be a solid barrier from unwanted entry.
