How To Buy A Garage Door

Not sure where to begin when looking for a garage door? The professionals at Ed Mojica Installations can help!

There are a few things to consider before you buy a new garage door.

Budget:  It’s important to have a budget in mind when looking into any major purchase. Make sure to have a realistic range to work within that includes both a high-end and even a low-end amount you are willing to spend.  

Style:  One of the hardest decisions you will have to make is trying to decide on a look that best suits your home.  Our staff  can direct you to the style that best fits your needs.

Insulation:  The next step is deciding if you want an insulated door. With drastic climate changes on Long Island, it is typically a good idea to insulate a garage door to help keep some sort of temperature control within your garage.  There are two types of insulation – polystyrene and polyurethane.

Reinforced Door:  You can choose a wind code door that suits your needs.   They range from code 1 to code 8 – 8 being the strongest.   

Maintenance:  For most garage doors maintenance is generally minimal if you have a steel or fiberglass door. Remember no door is absolutely maintenance-free; it is recommended to clean the door and lubricate the moving parts of the door – at the very minimum, once a year.

However, if you are considering a wooden garage door, keep in mind that maintenance and cost increases.  Wooden garage doors need to be treated and stained once every couple of years.   We carry Fimbel doors that look and feel like wood without the extra maintenance!
