The secrets to finding the right garage door


Buying a new garage door is a big investment, so it’s important you choose the perfect one for you. At York Garage Doors we understand that at first the amount of choice and options available can be a little overwhelming. To help ensure our clients get the best door for their needs we always recommend considering the following before making a purchase:

Door type

There are a variety of options available such roller, sectional and up and over garage doors. Each have their own advantages such as space saving, added security and energy efficiency. It’s important to think about which features are most important to you.


Doors are available in different materials such as wood or steel which have different benefits. For example steel has a fantastic life-span, whereas wooden doors can be more affordable than their metal counterparts.

Upfront cost

This might sound obvious, but it’s a good idea to know your budget. Prices for doors can vary depending on the type, material, finish and whether any accessories are bought. It’s a good idea to find out whether pricing includes installation or not, so that it is clear exactly what the overall cost is.

Overall value

As well as the upfront cost, it’s also important to consider the overall value of your door. By this we mean what costs will accrue over time. For example, although steel doors may be more expensive initially, it is unlikely that they will require as much regular maintenance as wooden ones, nor need to be replaced so quickly due to their longer life spans.

A new garage door can also add value to your property, so if you’re thinking about selling it, it may be a good long term investment to make.
