Garage Doors Looking to invest in new garage doors? When it comes time to choose new garage doors, there are several decisions to be made. In terms of looks; colour and material play an important role. Have a certain colour in mind? Garage doors can be created in any colour, working with the colour scheme on the exterior of the house to create an overall look that has instant curb appeal. While most retain their metal finish, some garage doors can feature a wood finish, in anything from rosewood to merbau. As for materials, garage doors come in a range of materials. Choosing the right material means thinking about how sturdy and durable it will be. Garage doors should last years, decades even. When investing in new doors, it’s important to make sure they are tough enough to stand the test of time – and Australia’s climate. Some garage doors can be created to stand up to even the worst weather events.
Garage Door Technology The most basic garage door can simply be opened manually. No motor, no remote, just get out of the car to open and close the garage by hand. However, when coming and going frequently, it can be handy to have garage doors that can be opened electronically. When choosing this option, there are three main types of technology to choose from. First up, there is the remote control option, where a remote control can be used to open or close the garage door. Secondly, there is the automatic option. This uses a sensor so that the door will open and close automatically when the car is within a certain range of the garage. Lastly, there is the smartphone option. This allows users to open and close their garage door with their compatible smartphone. Ready to start shopping? eBay is the place to go for garage doors.
