Boston Garage Doors

Choosing the right garage door in Boston takes a little more thought than in some other areas of the country. For example, Atlanta's average low temperature in January is 36 degrees Fahrenheit, just five degrees above Boston's average high for the same month. And in Denver, the annual average precipitation total, including rain and snow, adds up to a whopping 15 inches. Beantown gets more than 40 inches of rain and 40 inches of snow during the same 12-month span! To put it simply, Boston's unique mix of meteorological factors make it important that you carefully consider everything from garage door insulation to the materials a garage door in Boston is made out of, in order to get the best performance possible from your new door.

Costs We'll hit on a few suggestions for purchasing a good garage door for Boston in a moment, but since most homeowners are first and foremost concerned with cost, we'll start there and then get back to the details. HomeAdvisor gives thousands of contractor referrals to Boston residents every year, and in order to make certain we're providing quality services, we follow up on those referrals and collect information on everything from costs to overall homeowner experience. Based on that information, the average cost of a garage door, including installation, in Boston, runs $1,425, though we have heard of jobs running as little as $700, and others that pushed the ceiling at $3,000. Different garage door materials, R-values (i.e. the level of insulation), and decorative options all influence the price. Ultimately, it's your preferences in each of these categories that will determine how much your garage door in Boston is going to set you behind.

Materials By far the most important consideration when it comes to choosing the right garage door for your Boston home is materials. Traditionally, garage doors have been available in pressed wood, steel, and solid wood designs, though aluminum, fiberglass, and vinyl garage doors are starting to make inroads in the market, as well. Which is the best choice for Beantown? Read on.

  • Benefits of Wood—When it comes to a high-end combination of looks, durability, and protection against the elements, it's tough to beat wood garage doors. They're the entire package. Kind of like the Pats have been since the turn of the millennium. These doors naturally insulate your garage against Boston's legendary winters, their solid wood construction makes them as tough as garage doors come, and they look great, too. As far as we can tell, there are only three downsides. They're expensive, they will need to be re-painted or treated as the years go by, and they are heavy, though if you install a garage door opener along with your door, that's really a secondary concern.

  • Benefits of Steel—For the best combination of durability, cost effectiveness, and R-Value, steel garage doors are where it's at. Steel withstands impacts, and when properly coated (as most steel products are these days) exposure to weather is never going to be an issue. Steel doors can also be purchased with a polyurethane foam insulation applied to the backside of the door in order to increase the insulation it provides your garage. Whether you use your garage as a workshop 12 months of the year, or you prefer a stout barrier between you and freezing temperatures when you hop in your car on winter mornings, these doors are the perfect fit for the vast majority of Greater Boston's homes.

  • Other Options—Honestly, wood and steel top our list of doors that best fit Boston's climate. Doors made from pressed wood panels simply aren't made to last, though they're a fine option if low cost is your primary concern. As for aluminum, vinyl, and fiberglass doors, the beatings that garage doors take, along with some questions about how some of these materials perform in Boston's extremely cold weather, raise some questions. They're certainly worth looking into, and you may be pleasantly surprised with what you find. As for proven track records, however, these newer products need a little more time in the field before Bostonians should embrace them without reservations.

    Advice from Fellow Bostonians Sometimes the most trusted expert is a homeowner who has already been through the grinder. Here's a little advice from fellow Bostonians who've already faced garage door purchases and installation. Bostonians are pretty mum on suggesting door styles and materials (it seems they prefer to let their contractors advise them on that point), but they do have a lot to say about being prepared ahead of time to ensure you get the best deal, and the best fit, with your garage door purchase.

    "Get at least three quotes" writes one resident of Natick, echoing some proven advice on how to get the best level of service at the best price from any contractor. "You'll see the difference (between) quality work (and other options). It costs a few bucks more but it's worth every cent." Another homeowner, this one from Norwood, added that it pays to "Do research first. Check the details, and look to compare products (with) others that were installed in the neighborhood." That's another great suggestion, especially considering that your garage door is a major decorative addition to your home, as well as a functional one. Like other home improvements, you don't want to out do the Joneses. A wood door in a simple starter neighborhood, for example, will certainly set your garage apart from others on the block, but it might be a little too much in the eyes of prospective homebuyers if you ever decide to sell your home.

    All of our suggestions aside, your best bet when it comes to purchasing and installing the right garage door for your home is to talk to a contractor who has the experience that only comes with selling and installing garage doors for a living.
