5 Popular Garage Door Brands for Your Home

Simple and conservative or complex and showy, garages are essential components of home construction. Some stand front and center while others rest askew or hide around the corner. But they all have doors and in many cases garage doors become a first impression to our homes. It’s like meeting someone with a bright smile or a vise-grip handshake; you know what you’re getting into.

Your garage door might have a look unique to the whole neighborhood and dresses up your property, or it could be a grizzled, unwelcoming portal that wards off even the most determined of salesmen.

Indeed, today’s garage door brands span a similar gamut of personalities, function, look, and cost. Many manufacturers offer a range of designs, sizing, panel patterns, hardware, and windows; as well as various lines including sectional, wood, steel, fiberglass, and others.

About the Author:

Owner, Dotan Bar, has always possessed an intense passion for problem-solving and mechanics. This love led him to work for years as a sub-contractor for larger construction and re-modeling companies. As he dialed in his specialized training to garage door service, he realized that the tactics of many bigger companies were not up to his standards. His beliefs of fair pricing, community support, and overall, HONEST business practices were not upheld in many of these larger companies. He realized that the customers, who are the overall drive of business, were often being taken advantage of! Whereas many workers may just continue with the flow, Dotan broke off on his own to begin doing business he could believe in. This dedication continues to grow our satisfied customer base, daily.
