If you are looking for a garage door company for any reason, from garage door repairs to installations there are some things you want to keep in mind.  You want to make sure that you pay the best price possible for the best service in town.

Here is a short list of qualities to look for when searching for the right garage door company:

1. Look for a local company.  A local company will know how to best work with your garage door.  They are familiar with the environmental issues and the styles of your area.

2. Make sure the company shows up on time when coming to give you the free estimate.  If the technician isn’t on time to inspect your door and give you an estimate, then they probably don’t respect your time and may end up taking a very long time fixing your garage door issue.

3.  Make sure the company actually gives you the free estimate. If a company tells you they will give you a free estimate then they should deliver that.  You shouldn’t have to pay to find out how much the job will cost.

4. Make sure the company has a wide variety of parts, so that you know you can get exactly what you are looking for.

There are many more things we could go over here, but these are the basics to look for in your garage door company.

There are many different opinions on whether or not you need an insulated garage door.  Here at Seattle Garage Doors we fully believe that an insulated garage door is the way to go.

Insulation can keep the extreme temperatures from outside from seeping in.  This is great if your garage is attached to your home.  You don’t want cold or hot air sneaking into your home from your garage door. Insulation can save you money on heating and air conditioning.

A lot of people use their garage as another room in the house instead of just to park their car.  If this is you an insulated garage door is the only way to go.  You don’t want your game room freezing cold in the winter and scorching hot in the summer.  This goes for even if you just do laundry in the garage.

Ultimately the decision is up to you, but we would definitely recommend an insulated garage door.

When looking to replace your old garage door there are many options; among which is the option of what type of garage door to get.  You can choose from steel, wood, fiberglass, and aluminum.  Based on the climate where you live and what specifically you are looking for from your garage door will determine what type to get.

Let’s take a look at the different elements of each door.

Steel:  A steel garage door is the most widely used and recommended door.  It is the strongest door with very little maintenance required. Steel doors won’t be affected over time by the natural elements.  They can also be designed to look almost any way you want. Steel can be dented fairly easily and that may be hard to fix.

Wood:  Wood garage doors are generally used for their beautiful appearance.  They can be a beautiful addition to the exterior of your home.  However, wood doors require a lot of maintenance.  They can be easily affected by the weather, and need to be re-painted every two years.  They are less expensive than steel doors.

Fiberglass:  Fiberglass doors are rarely used except in climates with a lot of salt in the air.  They are very light doors, which is a definite plus.  Unless you live where there is a frequent rush of salt air, this door would not be recommended.  These types of doors can break easily and are not good at insulating.

Aluminum:  Aluminum doors are pretty durable and can be stylized similarly to steel doors.  They are lighter weight than steel however.  The main drawback here is how easily they are dented.

Hopefully this gives you a bit better of an idea of what to look for when choosing your next garage door.

Your garage is a very important part of your house.  It is usually a big portion of the house, and it is also where you generally keep your car, and all other miscellaneous things you couldn’t find a place for inside. Because of this, it can easily become very cluttered and messy.

A messy garage is bad for not only your poor car, who now has to sleep in the driveway, but also for your daily mind frame.  Ever heard the phrase “a cluttered house is a cluttered mind?”  This concept also applies to your garage.

When we organize our garage/house suddenly our lives in general become more organized.  Now you can easily park inside the garage and find whatever it is you are looking for instead of getting overwhelmed and giving up the search.

For some of you it might seem an overwhelming task to organize your entire garage, if that is the case just do it a section at a time.  Eventually you will get the whole things done.  Here are some quick tips to getting your garage in order:

  1. Buy storage containers
  2. Label everything (every storage container should have a label on it)
  3. Hang things on the walls and ceiling (bikes, etc.) this can save a lot of valuable floor space

If you do these 3 simple things you will see an amazing difference in your garage!
