4 FAQs About Garage Door Service From Carlsbad's Experts, Carlsbad, New Mexico

A garage door is more than just the entrance to your garage; it’s an extension of your home’s exterior and can provide aesthetic beauty, as well as functionality. If you’re considering a garage door installation, you may have some questions for your garage door service company. Below are a few of the most common frequently asked questions about garage door service. 

Garage Door Service FAQs

Should I Get a Metal or Wood Garage Door?

There are benefits and downsides to either choice, so your preferences will ultimately determine the best type of garage door for you. Wood garage doors are high-quality and add a natural look and warmth to your home’s exterior. Metal garage doors are low maintenance, so they will require less from you over time, but they can be painted to match your home. However, in both instances, the quality of the door will affect the cost. 

Should I Put Windows in the Garage Door?

garage door serviceWhen deciding on garage door windows, there are two things to consider: whether your garage already has natural light and whether you are seeking privacy and security. If your garage doesn’t have windows, adding a row can create natural light to help open up and brighten your garage. You should also decide if appearance factors into your decision. You’ll want to make sure the design works with your home’s exterior, so check out different styles before making a decision, or talk with your garage door service company. If you decide to wait, you can always add windows later. 

How Long Do Garage Doors Last?

The life span of garage doors depends on the quality of the parts and construction, but most last about 20 years or more. This includes the paint, providing you wash it regularly (two to three times a year) and have a protective primer coat on it. 

How Much Does a Garage Door Cost?

Cost may be your greatest concern, but you’ll want to figure out a few things first. If you decide on a single garage door and choose a metal garage without windows, costs can run around $1000 or more. If you decide you’d like a wood garage door with the same elements, you can expect costs for high-quality doors to range from $750 to almost $4000, depending on quality and design.
