Garage door openers and door brands that are inexpensive, but dep

finz2leftDecember 16, 2009


We live in Alabama, where homes are sometimes built with garages (not carports), but no garage doors. Odd, I know.

We are adding a door now. Any suggestions on brands to seek out or avoid on the door and opener.

I know enough to know HD and Lowes may not be the best places to look, but not enough to know where TO go, LOL.

Double car garage and electric is ready. DH thought we could do it ourselves, but I'm not convinced. We are selling in a few years, and really need the door for our own use, but also for resale.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Overhead Door, is perehaps the most commonly available brand of garage doors and most doors are now aluminum. OD has many designs and prices and are available plain and insulated. The dealer that installs the garage door can also install the opener. One of the better brands of openers is Genie. If you install a double wide insulated door, I would suggest a 3/4 HP opener.

The advantage of having the same company install the door and opener is that it gives you better warranty options.
