Installing a New Garage Door in 2022? Make Your Project a Success

Is it your goal to install a new garage door in 2022? You can make your project a success by doing some research now. If you’re installing a new garage door in 2022, start by making a budget, shopping around, familiarizing yourself with garage door styles, and knowing your priorities.

Make a Budget

Knowing how much you can afford to spend on your new garage door will help narrow your choices and prevent you from going overboard with your purchase. Typical garage doors can cost anywhere from $500 to $8,000, depending on the size, material, and features.

If you’re planning to get financing, look for lenders ahead of time to find out what you’ll pay to borrow and how long it will take to pay off your loan. Have your loan paperwork lined up and ready to go, so getting the financing won’t delay the purchase and installation of your garage door.

Shop Around

Meet with different garage door installers before choosing the right model for your home. Every garage door installer sells different products at different prices. Look at their catalog and get quotes for each door you’re interested in.

Check references before signing a contract with a garage door installer. Find out from the references whether they would hire that garage door installer again, if they were happy with their experience, and how long ago they worked with that installer.

Consider their reputation and professionalism when vetting garage door installers. Look at their website for readability and good branding. Read online reviews of that installer to see what experience other customers have had with that installer. Don’t sign a contract until you’re sure that the garage door installer meets your expectations.

Know the Styles

Residential garage doors from Overhead Door Company of Oklahoma City come in a range of styles, including:

  • Carriage style. These doors look like the wooden doors that appeared on carriage houses of old. They’re traditional, attractive, and even a little romantic.
  • Wooden garage doors. Wooden garage doors have warmth and beauty that you can’t get from any other garage door material!
  • Envy model. Our envy model is glassy, shiny, and almost otherworldly.
  • Modern aluminum. Our modern aluminum and glass garage doors look just right in contemporary-style homes.

Make a List of “Must Haves”

Know your priorities and shop for those first. For example, do you need windows in your garage door? Is it important to get a wind load door? Put these features on your “must-haves” list.
