At Wm. Haws Overhead Doors, you could say that we are passionate about garage doors. When we’re speaking with our customers, we get asked some common questions. This blog is a great opportunity for our team to address our top frequently asked questions about garage doors! Read on for all our answers.
How long should a garage door last?
A good quality garage door that’s been professionally installed should last at least 20 years, if not longer.
How much will it cost to have a new garage door installed?
This one is difficult for us to answer because there are so many variables! It really depends on which options you choose, and the size of your door or doors. Our team will ask you a series of questions to identify the best option for you and then provide you with an accurate quote once we have all the necessary information.
Should I add windows?
In our opinion — yes! Windows are great because they will let light into an otherwise dark garage, and they also add curb appeal to your home’s exterior.
Should I get an insulated garage door?
Insulated doors actually do much more than keep heat inside your garage. They are much better quality all around. We always recommend installing an insulated garage door because they’re multi-layered and much more sturdy.
Can’t I just buy my garage door opener from a big box store?
Please don’t. We aren’t saying this for no reason. When you buy your opener from a chain store, you’re not getting a professional grade product. Sure, it could still be from the same company that we sell, but the quality will be lower. In addition, when you buy in-store, there’s a good chance that you will also need to buy a conversion kit to install it properly. As well, in most cases, we can provide you with a better and longer warranty.
