Picking Out The Right Garage Door Color

Color is an extremely important factor when making changes to the aesthetic of your home. Of course, a garage door is a big change. You probably know the benefits and features of a new garage door, but deciding on its color is a big step. The color of your garage door can influence a lot about your home's appearance (and curb appeal). A quality garage door will last you 10-15 years, so you want to pick the right color for your home. With different brands, styles, and colors to choose from, it can seem like a lot. Thankfully, you have us to help!

When you throw materials, textures, and color into the mix, it can get a little complicated. No worries, though, we've got some tips to help you make a decision. Is your garage door front-facing? You may want to match it to the entry door then! The average home will have three colors to work with: trim, siding, and doors/shutters. What's the most popular to complement with your garage door? Your front door!

Does Homeowners' Insurance Cover My Garage Door Repair or Replacement?

Garage doors can go through a lot. After all, protecting your garage and home requires a lot of durability and care! While a high-quality garage door will last you 10-15 years, accidents can happen. Your kids may crash into the garage door while playing hockey, or maybe your garage gets damaged by severe weather--regardless of the reason, you'll likely need to get it fixed. For those with homeowners' insurance, there may be an opportunity to receive money to help pay for a repair or replacement. Your garage is part of your home, isn't it? While each policy differs, there are some situations that your homeowners' insurance may cover your garage door repairs. 


Keeping Your Garage Pest-Free

A garage is an excellent shelter for your car, power equipment, tools and whatever else you may want to store each season. Unfortunately, many pests and bugs find your garage rather accommodating too. A garage provides pests with a warm, safe place that has multiple entrance points, including one very large entry point--the garage door. Typical pests you'll find in the garage include rodents, crickets, spiders, flies, silverfish and sometimes larger wildlife. So, how do you keep these pests out of your garage and home?

Surviving Winter in Buffalo: Get An Insulated Garage Door

It gets pretty frigid during the winter in Western New York. Sometimes, it's freezing even in October! Staying comfortable in your home all year-round should be stress-free; unfortunately, sometimes high heating bills and cold drafts wreak havoc on homeowners. While you're trying to manage snow and ice on your property, you don't want to worry about warm air escaping your home. One of the biggest culprits of unwanted heat flow is a poorly insulated garage door. Because attached garages share walls with the house, any air that travels through the garage will affect the space beside it. When your attached garage gets colder, your home does too.


Garage Door Panel Sections: Repair Vs. Replace

A garage door is a complex system with connected, moving parts that function as one. The largest component of a garage door is its panel sections.

These panels are often accidentally damaged by vehicles, but extreme weather can take its toll on them as well. If you notice damage on a panel section from the outside while your garage door is closed, or from below when it's open, you're probably wondering if you can fix just that one panel. Well, the short answer is yes, but let's go over your options.


How Winter Affects Your Garage Door

Winter in Buffalo can be a challenge, but for many homeowners, they're veterans to tough weather. The same should go for your garage door, too.

Fortunately, winter damage can be avoided by becoming aware of potential situations and how to avoid them.
