Garages

In Newark, garage doors serve many vital functions to your home as part of your home security, curb appeal, and energy efficiency, not to mention letting your automobile in and out of the garage.

From Chester to Bloomfield, Phillipsburg to Morristown, and throughout the greater Newark area, we've helped homeowners find the right person for all their Newark garage door needs. Don't let a broken door assembly or worn door slab go any longer. Get it replaced now.

Types of Garage Doors in Newark, NJ

Wood Doors: Wood doors are the top tier of garage doors. They look the best, provide superior insulating qualities, and their heavy weight makes them no easy feat for intruders to move. Unfortunately, they also tend to be more expensive and can warp with time and exposure to moisture and temperature changes.

Metal Doors: Steel doors are the strongest garage doors on the market, although by the time they've been coated to protect against rusting, they can be nearly as expensive as wood doors. Aluminum doors aren't quite as strong as steel, but they're dependable doors and, given their lower cost, are among the more popular garage doors.

Fiberglass Doors: Fiberglass doors are similar to aluminum in terms of performance and cost. They can offer varying looks and won't be translucent as aluminum can be.

Newark Garage Door Openers
In terms of convenience and home security, your garage door opener is probably more important than the door itself. Automatic garage door openers are now available in a number of different basic designs including remote controlled, computerized openers, and wireless keys that you swipe in front of a scanner. As it goes with technology, when something new comes along, the older models suddenly plummet in price. Unlike a computer that runs a half second slower than the latest model, however, there are legitimate reasons to avoid the cheapest of the automatic garage door openers. If you don't at least ante up for a model than uses rotating frequencies, you can unwittingly give access to burglars and other intruders.

Homeowners, who use their garage as a primary entry and exit point for their home, usually don't even consider manual garage door openers. Old-fashioned though you may be, nearly everyone can appreciate the benefits of automatic garage door openers. Computerized models work as full-fledged home security systems that will allow you, while working from the office, to let your gardener, maid, or guest enter your home and then to immediately relock it.

Average Cost of Common Newark Garage Door Projects
The average cost of installing a new garage door is just a smidge more than $1,000, although we've seen doors cost as little as $500 and as much as $2,000. Garage door openers typically cost about $350 to install, although computerized systems naturally cost significantly more. Garage door repairs of any kind most often run between $100 and $400. Of course, you won't know exactly how much your project will cost until you discuss the options and solicit estimates from contractors. Our prescreened contractors ensure that you will only talk to qualified professionals, but you'll still need to judge between different levels of service and project costs when choosing which one to hire for the job.
