Based on the requirements you may choose any one from Roller garage door, Sectional garage door, Side-hinged garage door or Up-and-over garage door. Roller garage doors as the name suggests roll up into the drum located just above the opening of the door. Sectional garage doors are essentially the same except that they do not protrude in the driveway making it safe for car to be parked. Side-hinged garage doors preserve the interior space of the garage room. You can optimize by studying pros and cons of aspects like these when choosing a garage door.
The unique climate of the region brings stress to houses in Dallas-Fort Worth, and all of the cities around. Dallas homeowners are not strangers to fence and roof problems due to weather, as well as landscaping anxiety and lost windows due to hail. They also know that their garage doors undergo a lot of pressure. Their doors must be lasting enough to withstand possible hail damage on the surface of the garage door and the overhead door fixtures and hardware, warping due to extreme wind gusts and UV exposure, and parts malfunction from the high temperature fluctuations. If Dallas was voted as the city with the most weather hazards, then Dallas residents need the garage door with the most quality. This means that residents need to use special care when choosing which overhead door to acquire and which garage door company will be granted the installation job. If they don't order an overhead door that will endure the meteorological punishment of North Texas, they will soon regret it. Likewise, if they buy an overhead door of the highest quality, but use a new company that is unqualified and inexperienced to install the door, they may find their high quality door blown off, broken or split during the next wind storm. Improperly installed garage doors that come loose off the track during wind storms have been known to crash down on automobiles, or fly into neighbor's yards and cause property damage.
There is a wide range as well when it comes to choosing the material of the garage door. You can choose any one from Steel, fiberglass, plain old wood or polyethylene base don your requirements. Steel doors are the strongest and most durable, whereas high density polyethylene doors never dent, rust or fade and do not require to be repainted. Fiberglass doors can also be an option if you want some natural light to pass through as these materials are translucent and also maintenance free. Conventional wooden doors would well fit into your budget and requirements but the low initial cost might be deceiving as the maintenance cost is relatively higher than the other options; wooden doors require regular check ups for warps and rotting.
As a door expert witness, I am called upon many times a year to evaluate garage door injuries. Garage doors come in many shapes and sizes. Their functions range from basic security of an area to cosmetic concealment. Most doors can be broken down into a few basic styles or categories. Typical modern garage doors for residential applications tend to be predominantly of the overhead sectional variety. That style of door comes in many configurations, materials, levels of insulation, and a wide range of appearance possibilities. They are available as a prefabricated kit, or built as a custom design to complement the dacor of any building. Commercial warehouse type installations often dictate higher security requirements. A good choice for this security type of door is the "roll-up" style that resembles a roll top desk type of door. This door can be manufactured with a variety of materials that can be as strong as the adjacent walls, making forced entry through this opening very difficult. Other common commercial installations include light weight aluminum single or sectional panel doors. These doors function more for closing off an already secured area than for assuring point security.
