Energy-Efficient Garage Doors

You can get garage doors that are energy-efficient and made of sustainable materials. Manufacturers now build doors that carry at the 20-year warranty and need fewer repairs. Newer doors are constructed with materials that can withstand the harsh Minnesota winters. We also recommend choosing doors that are insulated and seal the garage from the outside elements. With all the eco-friendly products on the market, investing in energy-efficient doors is easier than ever.


High-Tech Features

Garage doors have a come a long way in the last 20 years. The system now includes high-tech features give you full access to your garage door no matter where you are. Products now contain DC motors and LED lights that use less energy while performing better than the older models. If the power goes out, you can install a backup battery into your garage door. Panels are now programmable and can be used anywhere in the house via a wireless unit.


Open Your Garage Door From Your Phone

If you’re tired of losing your garage door opener, we can install a garage door opener that comes complete with an app for your smartphone. Just download the app, connect to the opener, and you’re ready to go. An app comes in handy when you want to let people in the garage while you’re away from home.
