What’s in a Door? Choosing the Garage Door that is best for Your Home

Our home’s outward appearance often reflects who we are and what our interest entail. Consequently, we choose shrubbery, siding, roofing shingles and more, as much for their functionality as for their appearance. And, when it comes to your garage door, the thought process is not all that different. After all, there is more than one type of garage door to choose from, and as such, that can make it a bit difficult to determine the best garage door for your Lino Lakes residence.

When it comes to selecting a garage door, one needs to think about a variety of elements. Some of these include the quality of the insulation (keep in mind that garage door insulation is an optional feature); the type of material used the glass inserts, the color, the number of panels and perhaps the most important, the price. (Of course, the first five elements typically affect the last one!) So, to help you in determining what type of Lino Lakes garage door to use, here are some basic descriptions of the three types of garage doors.

Stock Doors – Regardless of the type of material used for the garage door you select, the most common stock design is one without a glass panel. A basic wooden garage door is made of pressed wood or Masonite, has recessed panels that can be painted to match your home. However, as you add features such as extra insulation, windows and installation cost, you can expect to pay more. The stock door is an efficient choice and can work well with nearly any style of home.

Semi –custom Doors – If you have a bit more to spend and want something that arrives ready to match your home’s architectural style then this is a great choice. A semi-custom door can be purchased in a wide range of materials from hemlock to mahogany, as well as steel. These doors generally come with tracks, rollers and all you need for the garage door opening/closing system. The price range can vary greatly.

Custom Doors – There are very few restrictions with this type of door and it can be designed to enhance any architectural style. You can choose from a long list of panel styles, colors, material, grooved panel faces and much more. These can be a bit more expensive, but are truly the thing to go with, if looking for a unique garage door that enhances your home.

Garage doors no longer have to serve a purely practical purpose. Today you can choose functionality as great design- it’s up to you.
