Choosing Your Garage Door

[ Go Back ]

If you’re thinking about installing a new garage door, but you're feeling a bit anxious because you’ve heard or read about the high-pressure sales tactics, disappointing results or worthless warranties – it doesn’t have to be that way. Avaunt Garage Doors can help you choose the garage door that fits your needs.

Important Factors to Consider

Curb Appeal

We can help you choose a new garage door that will transform the curb appeal of your home. We offer a variety of styles and options for materials, such as steel, wood, aluminum, or fiberglass, as well as colors and textures to complement the look.

Avaunt Advantage: If you have a beautiful home with attractive landscaping a custom garage door will finish the look and make you proud every time you arrive home.

Customizing Your Garage Door

We offer a variety of doors and styles to make your door fit the design you want.

  • Full Custom Wood

  • and more!

Avaunt Advantage: We have successfully completed thousands of garage door installations. Our expertise can help you make the best decision for a garage door that will be the envy of your neighbors!


A garage door is something that gets used every day and it is easy to overlook safety. This is especially important during the installation of the springs that should always be performed by a professionally trained technician.

Avaunt Advantage: We take the time to show you how to operate your new garage door and we thoroughly review the safety features with you which is especially important to protect small children. We can also help you reprogram your vehicle’s garage door opener feature.


Insulating your garage door is a smart way to save on energy costs. More homeowners are using their garage as a place to work or entertain instead of just using it for storage. Many garages now have supplemental air conditioning and heat.

Avaunt Advantage: We will help you understand the R-value of each type of door. A higher R-value can also cut down on street noise. Better insulation can make it operate quieter which can be a big plus if you are coming home late and don’t want to wake up the entire house.


Counterbalance springs are used to lift and close your garage door. The garage door opener simply gets the door moving. Properly installed springs are necessary for the safe and reliable operation of your garage door. They should always be installed and repaired by an experienced technician. If mishandled they can be extremely dangerous.

Avaunt Advantage:  We have installed thousands of garage doors. Since installing doors is our only focus, we install more garage doors in a month than most companies do in a year. We provide each customer with our detailed step-by-step process to install your new garage door. Our process is continually updated for changes in materials and installation methods and it sets a standard that very few of our competitors can meet.


Most garage door companies will offer a one-year warranty on labor. Most manufacturers offer a one-year warranty on the materials as long as the installation follows their recommended process. A one-year warranty is the minimum you should consider.

Avaunt Advantage:  Ironclad 2 YEAR warranty on ALL LABOR on garage door installations. We use the manufacturer’s installation guidelines, so your materials are covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. We want every customer to be a customer for life so if it isn’t right, we will fix it.


This is a long-term investment in the look of your home. If your door is maintained properly you can look forward to 20 years or more of reliable operation. With such a long-life span, the investment for a custom garage door will be a lot less per year than most people think.

Some garage door companies will specify a lower quality door so they can offer you a lower price because they don’t expect to work for you again or to provide the periodic maintenance your door will need.

Avaunt Advantage: We don’t work that way. We provide specific recommendations to give you the lasting durability and look you want.

We are highly motivated to make you happy because we want you to be a customer for life. Once your new garage door is installed, you can rely on Avaunt Garage Doors for prompt and professionally service.

From custom wood to carriage house, contemporary to traditional, you can count on
us for product expertise and a positive customer experience.
