If you live in Miami-Dade County, Palm Beach County, or Broward County you know that impact rated garage doors are an important part of protecting your home. But with so many different types of garage doors in the market, how do you know which one is right for you?
If you're in the market for a new garage door, you may be wondering where to start. There are many different types of garage doors on the market, and each has its own set of benefits and drawbacks. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular garage doors on the market in Florida, and help you choose the right one for your home.
Traditional steel garage doors are a great option if you're looking for something that's easy to operate and maintain. These garage doors are the most common especially in the Floridian climate. They are made of high-quality steel and come in a variety of styles and colors.
Choose between a short or long panel for your garage door if you prefer a more classic appearance. The flush panel actually merges in for a sleeker appearance. These all provide the option of including windows.
For the Ranch Style Home, there is also the Carriage House option with complementary decorative handles.
Along with numerous color choices, there is also an option for a wood grain color in various tones, allowing you to fit the design of your home. Since the majority of manufacturers have lifetime warranties on the original paint, it is advised to keep it that way.
Let’s talk insulation! If your garage is going to be used for activities, we highly recommend that you go for an insulated door. For example if you have a home gym, play room, theater, or workshop in this area of your home, chances are that you will have an A/C installed. In such cases, you will want to get an insulated door which will help cool down the space and lower power usage.
There are an endless amount of garage door options out there! However, these are just the most common ready-to-install options.
For more modern homes, there are also aluminum garage doors that offer a full-view experience and are made of aluminum and glass.
And the wooden doors, which are more difficult to keep in Florida due to the high humidity and year-round sun exposure.
The type of garage door you choose should be based on your individual needs. No matter what your needs are, Joe’s Doors will find the garage door that's perfect for you!
