4 Questions to Ask When Choosing a Garage Door

One of the easiest ways to transform and elevate the look of your home is with a replacement garage door. To get started, might we suggest asking a few important questions? Then, when you’re ready to take the next step, give the team at All Island a call.

Here are four questions to ask before selecting a new garage door.

Does It Match my Home’s Style?

When you’re replacing the existing garage door, you’ll first need to think about your home’s style. Is it traditional,or contemporary, for example. Clopay’s Avante collection, created with contemporary aluminum and glass, works great with modern homes, while the Canyon Ridge collection, which features the texture of natural wood in a style reminiscent of carriage house doors, is a great compliment to  traditional homes.

Take a look at the entire Clopay collection, available at All Island Garage Door.

To Insulate or Not Insulate?

This is an important one. Not only will an insulated door help keep the cold air out, it can help your garage stay cool in the summer months as well. Customers often choose insulated doors because they provide energy efficiency especially when the garage is attached to the home. Whether you choose an insulated one or not, any new garage door will help you save money on your energy bills.

What’s It Made Of?

A wood garage door? Or maybe an aluminum one? Material matters. No matter what type of garage door you choose, you can rest easy knowing that every Clopay door is built to last. In fact, Clopay doors are constructed with hot-dipped galvanized layers as well as baked primer and topcoat. And many of our collections – like the Clopay Classic collection – are available in three, two or one-layer construction with an Intellicore and vinyl backed insulation.

Can I Afford It?

Expensive garage doors are not necessarily better. For those working with a limited budget, Clopay offers a variety of garage doors guaranteed to be easy on your pocketbook. Like more expensive doors, they too will provide long-lasting durability and energy-efficiency.

The garage door you choose for your home should match its design and style – all while being affordable, energy-efficient and durable. Ready to get started? Contact the team at All Island and we can match you with the very best garage door for your home.
