When you decide you need a new garage door you will have to schedule for a garage door installation with an installer to come out and install your garage door. If your garage door is not working properly you may not require a new garage door installation you could call your friendly garage door installers and ask them to do an inspection on your garage door. If it just needs a repair they can usually do that in a very short period of time unless they have to order parts.
You have to remember that garage doors do last quite a long time and certain makes and models may not be manufactured any longer. In this case the garage door installation company may have to find the parts for you and this may take some time. They may also have to substitute parts and kind of make the door work for you. If this is the case you may want to consider having the door opening mechanism changed to a newer model. Sometimes this can be done.
But if you do decide on a new garage door you will at the same time be able to remodel the front of your home by changing the garage door to a more modern one. This is an easy and fairly cheap way to remodel the front of the house. Just repaint the outside also and it will look almost new.
But if you need a new garage door then you will have to decide what your budget is and what type of garage door opener you would like installed. There are several different garage door openers available which have different price ranges and different levels of noise and security.
You can choose a chain driven opener which is probably the most common and the cheapest. You can choose a screw drive model which is mid range for noise. Or you can choose a belt driven garage door opener which is quieter and generally a bit more expensive. There is also a torsion type garage door opener which is the most quiet.
You can add some bells and whistles to your garage doors. You can choose a single button door opener where you push a single button and the door opens. You can choose a more complex panel with several options to open the door. This panel can be a backlit panel. Or the mechanism can have a motion detector so when you step into the garage a light comes on. You should have at least one light that stays on for a few minutes when the garage door is opened for safety reasons.
You have a choice of generally ½ hp or ¾ hp motors. One opens a heavier door but either will work on a lighter garage door. You garage door opener could have a battery back up if you live where the electricity goes out often. You can also have a wireless key pad on the outside of the garage. Lots of choices here.
