When it comes to your home’s curb appeal, a new garage door that suits the style of your home can have a major impact. Choosing that new garage door, however, can be more complicated than you might think. Where do you start? How do you narrow the options to find the best design for your home? The team at Precision Garage Door is here to help answer your questions and guide you through the process of finding the right garage door with these four simple steps.


Read reviews (check the review dates!) and make sure the company has a physical address. Precision Garage Door is locally owned and operated and services well over 10,000 Central Indiana residents each year. “We are grateful for our community and the wonderful support we receive,” says Joel Belyew, owner of Precision Garage Door Indy.


With endless options of styles and colors, look at neighbors’ selections, browse online, or utilize to help narrow your focus. Then work with your sales consultant to select the design options the suit your vision.


An energy efficient door reduces energy bills. “In all cases your first option should always be a fully insulated door with a steel layer on the interior in addition to the outside,’ states Belyew “This also adds to the durability and strength.”


The type of steel used in your door is the most important element – 27 gauge (thickness increases as the number decreases) or thicker should be your starting point. Remember, if the brochure does not list the gauge, they likely are not using quality steel. Additionally, pay close attention to the hardware. Many doors come with temporary parts leading to long term expensive repairs. Be sure to ask the length of the warranty and if labor is included.

Investing in a quality garage door that is designed to suit your home is worth taking the time to get right. Connect with Precision Door Indy at 317-943-4737 or visit their website at to learn more and get started on refreshing your home’s curb appeal with a new garage door.
