What to look for when buying a garage door in Surrey BC

A home is one of the most significant investments any Surrey resident can acquire. Therefore, you want to make sure you protect it with all the means available, which includes a high-quality garage door. The reason why Titan Garage Door emphasizes on quality is that the right garage door can easily last decades or even a lifetime without needing to be changed. That is why it makes all the sense to spare some time and a little effort in making the right choice.

Finding the right garage doors in Surrey BC may seem daunting, exciting and strenuous at the same time. Whether you are looking to replace an old door or looking to install a new door, you will need to equip yourself with information before making a decision. Buying a garage door in Surrey goes beyond designs and looks. At Titan garage doors, we advise on focusing on features like the size, material, insulation and style. You also need to hire professionals to install and perform routine maintenance every now and then. So, what do you look for when buying garage doors in Surrey?

Garage door designs and ideas

Garage doors come in an extensive range of styles and designs that range from basic to intricately detailed doors based on architecture style. Depending on your Surrey home, you will need to choose a door that matches the overall style of your home, especially the frontal facade.

Garage door construction insulated vs non-insulated and semi insulated.

Another notable aspect to look out for is the type of insulation. When it comes to garage doors, you can either go with an insulated, semi-insulated or uninsulated. A highly insulated garage door means high capabilities to keep the hydro bill down and cool during summer and keep the heat during winter. The insulation usually comes in forms of polyurethane or polystyrene foam core in between the layers of the garage door. The core is responsible for the lightweight nature of the door, especially the steel doors.

Extended warranty on doors (lifetime)

The rule of the thumb is to go for a door that comes with a lengthier warranty. A more extended warranty is a sure-fire way of indicating that a door is of high quality or is durable. Remember, warranties vary by brand model and construction; a non-insulated door won’t have the same warranty as 3-layer fully insulated garage door. Therefore, never assume that all doors have the same warranty. Before you make the final buying decisions, make sure you have checked the brand, style and warranty. Don’t just check the length of the warranty but also read through to understand the restrictions and which damages are covered and which ones are not.

Premium hardware 

Getting a garage door with quality thickness in steel is a mandatory requirement if you want a long-lasting door with little maintenance. The lower gauge hinges, high cycle springs, silent rollers and hinges are all primary areas to look out for when choosing the right door. Standard hardware can break constantly. Most companies offer a one-year warranty on parts, while others offer a lifetime warranty based on the type of garage door you want.

Window setup and full view aluminum doors

The right windows and doors make your garage door look perfect. Apart from adding style, windows also provide light to the interior part of the garage. Whether you are considering a contemporary or traditional window and door set up, the end product should come with the right design, reduce noise and temperature, and offer safety and plenty of light. Titan Garage is here to help you make informed decisions with regard to your lifestyle and budget.

Lift types and door sizes

While the door openers do a great job of doing the lifting for you, you will need to choose the correct door size and lift type. For your residential project, you can go for a standard lift, but if there is an electric door opener, be sure to add two extra inches. If you are looking to maximize the height around the inside of the garage or if there are transoms( windows over the garage door), you can use a high lift. For commercial projects, a full vertical lift would do well. Before you buy a garage door in Surrey, make sure to also enquire about the lift warranty.

My old garage door opener failed on Saturday afternoon. I called Titan Garage Doors in Coquitlam and was amazed to... learn that they could have someone available to look at it that day. Technician Adam was at my door shortly after 6:00 pm. An hour and a half later, I had a brand new opener installed, the spring rebalanced, and door joints lubricated. I was very pleased with the prompt and professional service. Titan will be my “go to” for all of my garage door needs going forward.read more

One of our two, relatively new, garage door springs broke after about 5 years. So googled and found Titan Garage Doors... to fix it. They turned up same day within 1.5 hours to fix it. Alex, the technician was a super nice and super skillful guy, and it was obvious he had done the job countless times. He had to work in cramped conditions because the cars were struck in the garage, but he did a great job. The final price for two new springs was C$420 including tax. I'm only taking a star off because the person on the phone initially -- not Alex -- said a different price range; $150 to $250 ish. They must replace pairs of springs all day long... so why not just quote the real prices charged over the phone? Summary: Loved Alex. Hated the phone person in retrospect.read more

My garage door spring snapped. Called these guys first thing in the morning. When the mechanic arrived 30 minutes... later, I was anticipating getting ridiculous quote like those locksmith scam (paid $260 for 1 minute of job because locksmith knows you are desperate about getting locked out). Later I realized garage door repair isn’t the same as locksmith. I was given a reasonable quote for one hour of labour and it includes the price of the spring. After the mechanic got the door fixed, I was able to pay by credit card and was given a receipt. And on top of that, there is warranty for their repair work. I hope I don’t have to called them any time soon, but if I have to I will. Highly recommended.read more

Very prompt service. The technician, Eli, was pleasant, courteous and professional. He assessed the problem that we... were having with our garage door opener, opened the unit up and showed me the parts that had failed. Upon my approval of his price quotation, he went to work replacing the defective/failed part which I was pleased to find out that he carried in his vehicle. Very happy with the experience and highly recommend this technician and the company.read more

I would NOT recommend this company! We called Titan to come and do a service, maintenance and any necessary repair on... our garage door. The technician showed up, spent maybe 10 minutes at our place, balanced the door, took his $120 bucks and basically that was it. We asked if there was anything else that needed to be done and we were told no. Our installer arrived the next day and we were told that some of the rollers and hinges would need to be replaced prior to the installation of our new garage door opener. We were not told by Titan that any of this needed to be done. Titan returned the next day to give us a quote for the rollers and hinges... They quoted $40 dollars for each hinge, and $15 per roller. We have 12 hinges/rollers! At this rate, we'd be better off buying a whole new door! We had another company come in and replace only what was broken for a fraction of the cost and they did an amazing job I would not recommend this company, unless you have money to burn and want to overspend!read more

I am very happy with the service. Adam from Titan Doors did a great job fixing my garage door. He found the problem... right away (broken spring) and replaced the part quickly which he already had with him. Arrived within half an hour of me calling at 9 in the morning and fixed it all before 11am! Garage opens smoother and quieter than it did before! Thank you!!read more
