Things to consider when choosing a new garage door

When you start to discover the ridiculous amount of sheet colours and materials, it starts to become quite scary. There are a range of things that you should be keeping in mind when choosing between all these different styles, a selection of which you forget about when new questions need to be answered.

To help you out, the team here at ABi Garage Doors Ltd thought they would give you a few key things consider when choosing your new garage door.


This is important for any homeowner, but even more for some. For example, you may live in an area that is well known for crime and if that is the case, you’ll be making sure your garage door is as secure as possible. If this is the case, you will want to avoid timber doors, as they may look extremely attractive, but their security levels are nowhere near that of a sectional or roller garage door.


Saving money isn’t something you should think about when buying your garage door, you should be buying the best garage door you can afford, and if that means spending all your money, so be it. Not only will a lower-quality garage door be worse in terms of security and safety, but insulation. A high-quality garage door has great insulation levels, which will save you a lot of money over time on your energy bills.


These days it will be very hard to find a garage door that isn’t aesthetically pleasing, as it’s all been designed with the home’s exterior in mind. But there are certainly some garage doors that are much better looking than others in people’s opinions – with that in mind, be sure to find your ideal garage door for your home.

As previously mentioned, the sectional, up and over and roller garage doors can’t compete with the look of a timber garage door, but when it comes to security, they’re on completely different levels. It’s all about deciding what is most important to you, and that will be different for every home and homeowner.
