Why You Should Avoid Cheap Garage Doors12/03/2013 Back To Blog
When it comes time to replace their garage doors, many homeowners are tempted by cheap garage doors
Despite the fact that you are saving a few dollars initially, this is not a good idea for several reasons. These include:
Is it that big a saving? Many cheaply made doors are not actually saving that much money against the cost of some good quality doors made from other materials such as aluminum. Good quality aluminum doors are very reasonably priced and will be more durable than cheaper inferior doors.
Increased installation costs: Garage door opener installation should be left to the professionals. Since the doors can be very heavy and the garage door parts require specialist skills and knowledge to install them safely, you will be paying installation charges.
Lack of warranty: Many cheap doors come with little or no warranty. This means that should the door be damaged or prove to be faulty; you will have little recourse and may end up having to replace it anyway. A reputable company who has supplied and installed a new door will provide a warranty in the event of a problem.
The correct fit: Cheap doors are not always available to properly fit your opening. This could prove to be unsafe and potentially cause an injury or damage. The door should be the optimum size and fit for your opening to ensure efficient and effective function.
Peace of Mind: A good quality door can in some cases, with only basic regular maintenance, last a lifetime. Although this may cost a little more than cheaper alternatives, it provides a peace of mind which is totally priceless.
