Yes, a garage is usually used to store your vehicle, but they don’t always end up getting used for that purpose. More often than not they can end up as a dumping ground for the things you don’t want to lug up to the loft! So depending on what you use it for may dictate how high a priority certain features will be on your list.
Security - what kind of locking system do you need to keep your property and belongings safe and secure?
Safety Features - if your garage is in regular use, do you have pets and young children that may wander in and out?
Size - what is the head clearance of your garage and how much space do you have either side of the door?
Operation - are you looking for an electric or manual opening?
Like-for-like replacement or something new? - are you happy with the type of door you currently have or do you want to update it?
With the above questions answered you should have a good indication of the type of garage door that’s functional for your home. If you’re simply replacing like-for-like the job should be an easy one - a quick measure up and you’re away!
