When it’s time to buy a new door for your garage, do you know what to look for to ensure that you are getting the right and safe door for your garage? When it comes to garage door shopping, it isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ situation. A garage door is an essential component of your home. It is imperative that you look for the garage door that provides security as well as beauty to your house. Therefore, we have compiled a list of things to look for when buying a new garage door:


Security and the safety of your family are the two most important aspects for homeowners to consider when hunting for a good garage door. Therefore, it is better to find a garage door that’s equipped with the latest security features. The new garage doors in the market are equipped with rolling code technology. The code changes every time you use the remote control.

Safety of your family and pets

Sometimes, the garage is the place where you store valuable belongings, like your drums. The majority of households have children or pets. Therefore, buying a safe garage door should be at the top of the list. Make sure that your garage door is equipped with laser light sensor technology. Whenever the laser light sensor detects any object or a person below the garage door, it stops or reverses in the opposite direction. Consequently, keeping your pet and children safe from incidents.


Style is an essence that adds beauty to your house. Garage doors are available in an extensive range of styles including roll-up styles, sectionals and tilt-ups. Each style comes with its pros and cons. For example, roll-up garage doors are stylish but require proper maintenance and a monthly inspection to keep them functional. On the other hand, sectional doors require less maintenance to prevent mechanical breakdowns as they have fewer components. The style you choose totally depends on your preference and budget. If you want a stylish garage door, choosing from an extensive range of roll-ups is the best option.

Mechanical function/Motors

Checking the garage door motor’s horsepower is the most important thing to consider. If the garage door is heavy, it will require more power to operate. However, high horsepower with a light garage door might be unnecessary. Before buying the garage door, check if the motor has the right horsepower to operate the door. Or else, you could face mechanical breakdowns every now and then.

Cost and maintenance budget

The style, motor’s horsepower, security, and safety feature will determine the final cost of the garage door. When buying a new garage door, have a budget to determine the features you want and not want.

When buying a new garage door, make sure that you are happy with the product as it would be in use for years to come. After considering the above factors, you would be able to find a good garage door as per your needs and within your budget.
