Your Garage Door is More Than Just a Door

Your garage door is more than just a door. It is a functional, mechanical and visual asset to your home’s value and your enjoyment of your home. If your garage doors are front facing, they often represent more than half of the curb appeal. If they are installed properly they make your life much easier in any type or weather. If they break down they create headaches for getting your groceries in or getting to work on time. You should invest wisely in a good garage door.



What style garage door should you choose?


The first thing to consider when buying a new garage door is the style. There are many different styles of doors to choose from, ranging in materials and design that can be stylishly incorporated into your home’s exterior decorating scheme. If you have an older house with colonial or craftsman architecture, then traditional wood raised panel carriage-house doors are appropriate. If you have a more modern house, you should consider glass panels in a vertical pattern. The possibilities are as vast as your imagination.


Should I insulate my garage door?


The second thing you should consider is the insulation. Newer garage doors are typically insulated with polyurethane foam, and this will help to keep your home more energy efficient. Choosing a high-quality door that can resist moisture as well as cold air drafts is essential in preventing ice dams on exterior walls of your house or keeping bonus rooms above the garage comfortable year round. On the other hand, you may not need insulation at all if you have an unfinished garage and no room above it.


What type of garage door opener should I get?


The third thing you should consider is the door's function. If you use your garage door often, you need a good garage door opener. The heavier the garage door, the more horsepower you need (and you need the right spring so you do not wear out the motor too early). If you have an obstruction in the ceiling and room to the side of your garage door, a jack shaft motor is the right call. It will mount on the wall next to your garage door. If you have a room above your garage, you need a belt drive opener. The options for accessories are as varied as what it does for your home: a keyed entry, a push-button opener with automatic lights, or even an automated garage door that will open on its own when your car approaches and close behind you after driving in.


Why should I choose Kingdom Doors?


With so many choices, you don't want to rely on a company who is too busy throwing up 1,000 of the same exact doors in subdivisions. Chad has been doing garage doors for over 25 years and has seen just about every type of door under the sun. And Clay has been around garage doors as far back as he can remember, and has a mechanical engineering mind. So if you are in Franklin, Tennessee, Brentwood, Tennessee or Williamson County, Tennessee, you can't do better than these professional door guys.





If you aren't sure if you need a new door, think about these questions:


  • Do you have children or pets?

  • Are your doors old and in disrepair?

  • Is there an obstruction to the opening of your garage that blocks visibility from the outside? If so, are they fixed permanently like trees or temporarily with things like furniture for example.
