Which is better Chain or Belt drive openers?
Each opener operates the exact same way. The difference is that a belt drive opener is quieter. People tend to have a fear of the belt breaking. It won’t if it’s properly installed. I have saw several chains break and have yet to see a belt break. Most manufactures guarantee the belt for life.
Which is better a insulated or non-insulated garage door?
This depends on individual needs. An insulated door of course is going to provide more insulation than a non-insulated. First a non-insulated door is going to operate louder than an insulated door. The insulation in the door acts as a sound barrier. Second, is the rest of your garage insulated? Do you plan on doing so in the future? It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to buy the best insulated door if the rest of the garage isn’t properly insulated. It won’t do you a whole lot of good. How long do you plan on staying in the house? If you’re not going to be staying long it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to put the most expensive door in either. Last time I checked, kitchens and bathroom upgrades get the highest re-sale value, not garage doors.
How much extra does it cost for windows in my new garage door?
Plan on spending $250.00 extra for a double wide door and $150.00 extra for a single wide door. The extra is what most manufactures charge you to cut and insert the glass and for your choice of designed inserts.
I want windows, but I don’t want people to be able to see in. What should I do?
You’re in luck!!! My full time job happens to be as a police officer. I have yet to work one burglary in which windows in a garage door was a contributing factor in theft. I have yet to work a burglary or hear of a burglary in which the garage was the main entry point. As you drive down the street look at the doors with windows in them. Try and pick out one item inside the garage. Odds are you won’t be able to. While I understand a person’s concern in having windows in the garage door, you would have to walk right up to the door to see inside it. More thefts occur from people leaving the garage door open than people breaking in through the garage door windows. If you want windows and don’t want anyone seeing in, consider getting frosted windows. They are considerably more expensive and most of the times have to be special ordered. Also consider you won’t be able to see out them. Your best bet may be to contact someone who specializes in window tinting and get a quote from them to suite your needs.
