Commercial Garage Doors

How to Buy a Commercial Garage Door

Commercial garage doors are not inexpensive, so making sure you choose the one that does the job for you should be a top priority. One of the most important things you should do is not go with the cheapest of your choices. Yes, money is tight and you need to keep overhead down, but a commercial garage door is essential for your business so saving a little now may cost you up the river.

One reason you need to choose a quality commercial garage door is security. A business typically has expensive equipment and in fact your entire livelihood. Having a secure garage door will give you peace of mind. When you are away from your business over the weekend you need to be sure that your door is going to keep your property protected.

If you find yourself in the market for a new commercial garage door, you may find yourself overwhelmed with the number of choices and options. Generally, harmony with existing architecture is not an issue with commercial doors, because most people are looking for other features. Yet it’s good to know that doors come in many colors and materials at your fingertips. The only real material for commercial doors is metal, either aluminum or steel. Steel is very secure and cheap to maintain. Because of the heavy use commercial doors get, a 24 gauge minimum or higher is recommended. Aluminum is cheaper, but it generally dents and chips more easily and so is not recommended for commercial uses.
