Special Reserve Garage Door Installation in White Bear Township, MN


This February has been crazy with warm temperatures and with warm temperatures we start to think of all the great things that spring and summer bring to Minnesota. Grilling outside, watching baseball, and the smell of fresh cut grass and bonfires in the air. Well when we spend so much time outdoors we start to notice our Garage Doors and the condition they are in. If your Garage Door is wearing down, rotting out around the wood, or just needs an upgrade for curb appeal you can trust the experts at Garage Door Repair Company to handle any installation for you. In White Bear Township we had a customer that had just a run-of-the-mill steel Garage Door that was white with standard raised panels and wanted to upgrade to something that would improve their curb appeal. They decided to go with a custom order Special Reserve Garage Door with stockbridge windows; the door turned out fabulous and really improves the way the house looks from the road.

Difference between Custom Orders and Stock Options

When choosing a new Garage Door we often talk about different things like panel style, window options, straps and handles, and different color options; these are many of our common stock doors that we install on a regular basis. However we also have some custom order options available as well if you are looking for something more than just a standard steel door. We have options that have wood panel overlays, smoked or feather etched windows, and larger panels to have a three panel door which ends up looking more like a carriage door.

New Garage Door Installation Minneapolis MN

old masonite doorWhen is the right time to replace a garage door? This is one of the most common questions we get from our customers. Most recently one of our Minneapolis customers was having this same dilemma. He called us out to take a look at the garage door that had a Broken Torsion Cable. When going over the repair options the customer asked how much it would be to replace the entire garage door, preferably something with windows. The technician went over the best replacement options with the homeowner and they decided the best course of action was to install a New Garage Door. Our customer was really eager to add some natural light into the garage in order to use it as a work space. We were able to install a brand new garage door with cross glass inserts. The finished product not only looks great but will be running smooth for years to come!

Does Adding Glass To A Garage Door Cost More?

As technicians this is a question we are asked daily, and the answer is yes windows are always going to be an extra charge. The reason for this is the higher cost of glass as well as the labor involved in cutting the glass into the sections. However the cost to add glass to a garage door in comparison to how much curb appeal it can add to a home is a minor expense. By adding glass you are not just adding curb appeal, but also natural light that so many garages are lacking. This will help make the garage a great work door cross glass

What Type of Insulation is Best for Me?

One of the main reasons we do free estimates is to determine the best door to maximize efficiency in your home. By picking the right insulation you can save hundreds of dollars on your utility bills. All insulation has a rating, this rating is called R-Value. R-Value determines the products resistance to heat and cold. Garage door R-Values typically range on the low end around 6 all the way up to 18. It is important to keep in mind that a door that has 6-8 R-Value compared to a door that is 16-18 R-Value only has a difference of roughly 5% in heat/cold reduction. So if you are not actively heating or cooling your garage, it is probably not very cost effective to go for a high R-Value door. All of your Insulation questions and more can be easily answered during one of your free estimates.
