Doors with glass insets look very attractive but they are easier for burglars to break into. So if you are worried about security, then you should opt for front doors made of solid wood or fiberglass. The choice of material should also be governed by the area you live in and its weather conditions. Overall, the front door designs you select should be resistant to dents, scratches, extreme sunlight or cold weather and require less maintenance.

However, a garage next to the house can greatly limit the design options in the event that homeowners decide for an expansion. If you are in the process of building a garage, weigh the pros and cons of having a separate garage unit from the house. If you're concerned about accessibility, choose to use an automatic door. Browse the Internet if you want to explore design options.

In the past, the biggest concern with operating an overhead garage door was the potential risks associated with the springs used for balancing the door weight. Pre mid 1960's garage door installations typically relied upon a pair of stretched (tensioned) springs to assist the operation of the garage door pivoting hinges. These springs became loaded (tensioned) as the door was moved into the closed position. Unloading (releasing) of the stored spring energy occurred as the door was opened to the horizontal overhead position. One of the most dangerous aspects of these spring systems was that after a period of time, often without any maintenance or inspection, the points of attachment of these springs would rust or become weak. This weakening of the springs or points of attachment would often lead to an inadvertent explosive failure flinging the broken spring components across the garage, embedding the spring or steel components into the garage walls, cars or other items in the path of travel. Unfortunately, sometimes people were in the path of travel of these explosive occurrences. As these springs failed, as an attempted safeguard, some manufacturers devised a "caging" system for the springs. These cages were retrofitted onto the stretched springs in an attempt to capture the parts that would release if a failure occurred. While these caging devices were helpful, they were not completely effective. Some of these spring devices are still in use today. Whenever this condition exists or the quality of garage components are questionable, a qualified professional service technician should be consulted.

Customers are spoiled for choice as far as the building materials and designs are concerned. Wood and steel are the commonest building material. For each kind of garage gate material, you can get multiple options for its exterior look and feel. You can decide upon decorative windows, hardware, and insulation as per your requirements.

You would want a door which insulates well if there is a part of house extended above the garage. The R-value on a garage door tells how well it insulates. The higher the R-value, the better is its insulation properties. Terms like Headroom, Backroom and Sideroom become parameters to select a suitable garage door as they determine the dimensions; Headroom is the amount of space inside the garage between the top of the garage door and the ceiling. Backroom is the inside length of the garage, from front to back. Side room is the distance between the sides of the garage door and the side walls of the garage. Dimensions matter when you are installing a garage door as the hardware needs some room to operate freely.

It was there merely to keep the family car safe from harsh elements outside. A simple attachment to the house that looked like a box was enough to be called a garage. However, homeowners have come to realize that keeping the costs low when constructing a garage can greatly affect the overall visual appeal of the house. Besides, a big garage that serves multiple purposes can put the extra space on the property to good use.

Low-cost doors tend to use extension springs. Make sure an internal safety containment cable is included in case of breakage. Springs tend to be the first part of the garage door to need service or replacement. Many springs are tested to operate between 5,000 to 10,000 cycles while some manufacturers make a spring that will last up to 30,000 cycles or more. That's a wide difference in longevity and value when you add it up. Most homeowners use their garage doors up to 3,000 times per-year so a 10,000-cycle spring could break within 3-4 years. Replacement usually costs $150 - $250. Check the manufacturer's warranty on the spring. Never buy a door with only a one-year warranty on the spring.

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.
