3 Things You Need To Know Before...
Buying a Garage Door
1. Which Is The Best Garage Door?
We're often asked which is the best garage door and we answer the same way everytime. It's the one that best fits your needs. This page was put together to help you find your best garage door. Spend a couple of minutes here to learn the advantages of the types of doors: steel, wood, wood-composite & carriage house style and you'll be able decide which type is best for you. That's the first decision you need to make, then learn what you need to know about the warranty and which company to choose.
Steel Garage Doors
Steel is the most popular material used for garage doors today because of its durability. The right Steel Garage Door will look great forever and is virtually maintenance-free. It also has the advantage of being the least expensive garage door you can buy. If you're looking to add even more curb appeal, a Steel Door in Carriage Style like the one pictured, might be just what you're looking for...

Carriage House Doors
Radically beautify your home with wood carriage house doors. These doors increase the curb appeal of your home so much that real estate studies have shown they increase the value of your house. But that's not the real reason to have them... the real reason is just how much you'll love the way the exterior of your home looks... and if the neighbors are a little jealous, well, that just can't be helped.
Wood Garage Doors
Wood Garage Doors have been around for the longest period of time. Wood has a natural beauty, is very versatile, and operates quietly. It may be painted or stained. Wood doors are available in a wide price range, therefore they are easier to fit into any budget. If you choose a wood door, you should plan to spend some time maintaining it. It will require scraping and painting every few years to prevent rotting and cracking. Even when the door is well maintained, it can absorb water and swell in humid weather. You can not add insulation to wood doors in the same way you can with other garage door styles.
If you are interested in a wood garage door and are concerned about their ability to insulate, please call us. We'll be happy to answer your questions.

Wood Composite Garage Doors
Wood composite garage doors are in the price range just above steel. They come primed and ready to paint with a limited lifetime warranty. Wood Composite doors need to be painted or stained at the time of installation which allows you to customize the color of the door to perfectly match your home. That is often the primary reason people buy wood composite. Once it is painted it does not require the maintenance a wood door will. Nor will it crack, split, swell or warp like wood can. This environmentally friendly door is made mostly from recycled material so it is the "greenest of garage doors."

Architectural & Custom Garage Doors
In addition to the above styles, you may also consider doors that are unique and offer options to match your home's design. These doors can reflect styles from the old world with gorgeous woods such as mahogany, hemlock and cedar; to contemporary and modern styles in materials such as copper, aluminum or glass. Precision can work with homeowners, architects and designers to help make your vision a reality.
2.Warranty - How Well Do I Understand It?
Nearly every garage door comes with a warranty of some kind. Many companies claim they have a lifetime warranty but don't cover everything. Garage doors have many parts: rollers, cables, springs, door panels, etc. Find out what parts the warranty covers. When you read the fine print, you may find that the warranty does not cover warping, splitting, cracking, denting, or rusting and then limits parts to one year. When shopping you want to make sure you are comparing apples to apples.
3: Decide Which Garage Door Company to Buy From?
Unfortunately in Washington DC Maryland Suburbs the garage door industry is not strictly monitored. There are many fly-by-night companies that are not adequately insured and do not need to stand by their work because they won't exist in 6 months. When you buy a new door look for a company that:
Carries the necessary insurance
Provides warranties on the parts and labor of your new garage door
has Technicians that are well trained and uniformed
has Trucks that are clean and clearly indicate the name of the company (Fly-by-night companies that change their name every 6 mos., will not typically invest in uniforms or paint the company's logo on the truck.)
You should expect professionalism and courtesy at all times
Supplies references from previous customers upon request.
