Do you have a new, large addition to your garage, say a new truck? Whether you use the truck at home or at your job, it’s best parked in a garage, not on the street. If your truck does not fit under your overhead door, you most likely need to have a new door installed.
Can’t I just park it outside the garage?
Of course you can. However, that’s not always the safest option, especially if this is a new truck or one that holds valuable equipment you use for work. Parking your vehicle in the garage is always a safer bet than in the driveway or on the street.
What should I consider when getting a new garage door?
A truck is heavy and if you have to ram against the edges of the garage door and the walls, to get it through, you will be causing damage. You will be damaging the truck, the garage door and the walls of the garage which could compromise the structural strength of the entire house. Over time, repairing all this damage could add more to much more than it would cost to install a larger door.
If the main aim of installing a garage door is to make it possible for a truck to fit through without a problem, the main consideration is the dimensions. Other factors are secondary, but they are still important.
One is the material that you want the door to be made of. Do you want composite, wood, steel or aluminum? Or would you like a combination of two materials such as wood and steel? You also need to consider the design of the house. A garage door will add or reduce the esthetic and financial value of a home. It should blend with the design of the rest of the house. If there is contrast, it should be by design.
When undertaking any kind of construction, it is important to pay attention to the environment. You can go with the option of an eco-friendly garage door. These are made using only materials that are environment-friendly. Also, as much as possible, the materials used for construction are recycled. Eco-friendly garage doors are also made to be as energy efficient as possible for instance when it comes to insulation which is done to reduce overall household energy consumption.
