Sometimes an unfortunate accident can actually turn into an opportunity.. This was recently the case for one of our customers in NE Minneapolis. While many folks know winter can cause all sorts of havoc on a garage door, but having your garage door run in by a vehicle is probably the last of your concerns. Well, this is exactly what happened to this particular homeowner. Instead of just trying to patch the door back together, the homeowner decided this was a great opportunity to add some much needed curb appeal to the home. After setting up a free onsite door estimate, Garage Door Repair Company was able to help pick out the perfect door. This North Central RP-25 door is like most standard residential garage doors. But when the customer saw the Colonial Glass Design he knew he had to have it! Not only does it add curb appeal, but it also adds great natural light into the garage which the customer needed for his workshop.

Does adding windows increase the price of a New Garage Door?

This is a common question we get when customers are looking to replace their garage doors. The answer is yes, adding a custom glass top section does add to the cost, however the money you are gaining in curb appeal can easily out way the cost of the glass. Windows are not the only add on that can increase the price of your door, having an insulated garage door can also add unwanted cost to your project. Insulation can be very important if you have an attached or heated garage. Ensuring you have the proper R-Value for your home can save hundreds on your heat bill.

What is R-Value?

R-Value is a metric used to gauge an objects resistance to heat and cold. The higher the number the better resistance your garage door will have. There are many different types of doors with different R-Values, and knowing what’s right for your home can often be troubling. This is why Garage Door Repair Co. offers all of our Minneapolis customers free onsite estimates. This allows us to assist you in finding the perfect design and level of insulations for your home.
