New Garage Doors Sales & Installation | Phoenix AZ
Whether building or improving your home, selecting new garage doors from a large selection of sizes, materials, styles, and colors can be difficult. Because most two-car garages occupy 30% of a home’s exterior, it is important to choose a new garage door that complements your home, making sure it adds to the curb appeal and property value.

We offer premium-quality garage doors from several leading manufacturers in a range of sizes, materials, styles, and colors with optional hardware or windows. Adding insulation is another thing to consider. We can also help you design your dream garage door!
Garage Door Sizes
The first step is to measure your garage door opening. More than 50% of homes built in Arizona feature double-car garage doors, starting at widths of 16 feet and heights of 7 to 8 feet. Other dimensions can be custom-ordered to accommodate larger vehicles. Follow these step-by-step instructions to measure for your new garage door. All measurements should be in feet and inches.
Step 1: Measure both the width and height of the inside of the door opening. The dimensions should equal the size of your existing door.
Step 2: Measure the available wall space on both sides of the door to determine the side room. A minimum 3 ¾” is required for installation of the vertical track assembly.
Step 3: Measure from the top of the door opening to the ceiling. This ensures sufficient space for the door, overhead tracks, and extension or torsion springs.
Step 4: Measure the backroom; the distance from the door opening toward the back wall of the garage. Minimum measurement should equal height of the door plus 18”.
Garage Door Materials
Steel Garage Doors
High-quality steel doors feature single-layer, double-layer, and triple-layer construction. These doors are fabricated using high-tensile strength steel. Steel garage doors are offered in a variety of styles, such as carriage house and traditional in several factory-applied finishes. Steel can also be ordered primed or painted to match house colors. Composite overlays mimic the look of wood. Steel is virtually maintenance-free.
Wood Garage Doors
Nothing beats the distinctive look of natural wood. Woods include cedar, redwood, mahogany, and maple. Specialty woods may be available as well. Look for a species that performs well in the southwest. Wood requires periodic refinishing – sanding and restaining – to maintain its beauty. You can choose from a selection of colors to compliment your home’s architecture.
Fiberglass Garage Doors
Fiberglass garage doors are made with a fiberglass surface backed by steel. Features include multiple design and color options, foamed-in-place polyurethane insulation, and pinch-resistant door panels. If you want the look of wood without the maintenance, this may be the right door choice for you. Fiberglass garage doors can also be built to withstand the strongest winds.
Aluminum and Glass Garage Doors
The use of aluminum and glass has gained popularity with Valley residents in recent years. It provides a contemporary look and lots of natural light. These doors are also durable and low-maintenance. You can customize the aluminum frame and glass panels in your choice of color and design. Insulated glass may be available, depending on the manufacturer.
Garage Door Styles
Once you’ve decided on a material, you can choose from a wide selection of garage door styles to show off your style. Popular choices include traditional raised-panel garage doors, contemporary garage doors, and carriage-house garage doors. Sectional garage doors are the most commonly used. These doors are usually constructed of three to eight panels that can be professionally replaced if one or two become damaged.
Garage Door Insulation
The best way to protect against noise as well as heat loss and gain is to install an insulated garage door. Other advantages include energy efficiency, quieter operation, and structural integrity. Insulation is particularly ideal in homes with attached garages. Arizona Garage Door and Repair can help you make sense of R-values and U-factors as well as choose between polystyrene and polyurethane garage door insulation.
