Have you ever paused for a moment and thought about how much your garage door serves you? OK, yes, that idea sounds ridiculous, but it’s actually true. Think about it – your garage door is always exposed to the elements, you rely on it to work perfectly every single day, and it dramatically contributes (or detracts, if your garage door is in less-than-ideal condition) to the aesthetic value of your home – particularly if it’s on the front of your home.
Your garage door
If your garage door has fallen into disrepair – perhaps you don’t even use it at all anymore – you may feel unsure about what to do about it. But the good thing is that it’s easy to get the help you need for all your garage door needs – just call Carroll Garage Doors. We’re Southern California’s garage door experts, and we’re here to answer all your garage door-related questions and help you make well-informed decisions for your garage door.
Always a wise investment
Imagine being able to actually use your garage door every day again. Your car will be protected from the elements, so you’ll avoid unnecessary wear-and-tear, and your kids and pets will always safely get into and out of your car when it’s securely parked in the garage. Plus if you plan on selling your home in the next few years, getting a new garage door is always a wise investment. Many potential buyers consider the condition of the garage door an important factor when choosing a home to purchase.
Garage door options
Now that you’re seriously considering getting a new garage door, think about all your options. There are so many different kinds of garage doors available to you from Carroll Garage Doors. No need to get overwhelmed, though! But the good thing is that – today, we’re beginning a new blog series to help you navigate these options.
Today’s topic is: Which garage door material is right for you? Considering vinyl.
Vinyl is a popular garage door material throughout the U.S. because it’s lightweight, affordable, virtually maintenance-free because it never needs to be painted, and pretty durable, too, because vinyl never rusts or rots. Vinyl is also extremely dent-resistant in comparison to steel and aluminum. If you have kids who play sports in the driveway (or if you do!), vinyl is an excellent option.
If you live near the beach, vinyl may be your best bet because it stands up well to salt air. Vinyl door warranties often extend 20 years, which is one clear signal that they’re built to last. If energy efficiency is an important factor for you, there are various vinyl garage door styles that are insulated. These insulated doors also provide a nice sound barrier, too.
Vinyl may not be the ideal option for you if you prefer a more natural-looking look to your home. Some people are turned off by vinyl because it looks pretty plastic – not like traditional wood at all. But many people find the advantages of vinyl far outweigh the disadvantages, so be sure to consider all the factors and make your own well-informed decision.
