Before your garage door gets installed you first have to pick out your new door. This can be a very exciting time because your garage is a big visual aspect of your home and it has the potential to add a lot of curb appeal. Your typical one car garage door is about 8-10 ft wide and a typical two car garage door is about 12-18 ft wide. These doors can vary in height and thickness so you want to consider all of these variations before you have your door installed. Don’t worry our technicians at Legacy Garage Doors will help you with the entire installation process and if will be happy to answer any of your questions. Our goal is to provide the highest quality service to all of our Ridgefield residents!
Choosing A Garage Door
Garage doors can be made with a variety of different material and each one has its pros and cons. Vinyl and steel garage doors are going to be the most affordable doors. Aluminum and fiberglass are going to be the medium price point doors. Wood and composite wood are going to be the more expensive garage doors. Vinyl doors are low maintenance, lightweight and durable but they are limited in style options. Steel doors are low maintenance and one of the most affordable options but they are very heavy and therefor harder on your garage openers. Aluminum doors are lightweight and resistant to rust but they are not good at insulating the garage. Fiberglass doors are resistant to rust and rot, they are available in a variety of colors but they are susceptible to cracking in extreme temperatures and can develop a yellow hue over time. Wood and composite wood are heavy duty and require a lot more maintenance but they are better for insulating.

Hire Professionals To Install The Door
Installing a garage door by yourself is very dangerous. The doors themselves are extremely heavy, depending on which kind of door you get they can weigh up to 400 pounds! Not to mention the extension or torsion springs that lift and lower the door are dangerous to work on if you don’t have the proper training and equipment.
