 Tips for Designing Custom RV Garage Door

Recreational Vehicles have become very popular in recent times. Owning and running one has become quite costly as well. Owning an RV comes with cost and upkeep for long family trips and campsite reservations. Another major expense is the cost of storage while the RV is not in use. In response to this cost we are seeing people go for homes with RV garages as a way of reducing the cost of keeping one

People without a home base have two options when it comes to storage of the RV. The size of the garage makes it difficult to resell the house to people without an RV. This makes them opt to remove the garage or change it to something else. To those who decide to keep it, it has many added advantages. This includes an added space for the storage of valuable items.

While designing custom RV Garage Doors Texas they should consider the following:

THE SIZE: When it comes to size, they recommend a large size for them. The average height of an RV garage is 12 to 15 feet. The extra height is for the roof appliances. e.g. satellites, receivers, fans, and air conditioning. The specifications for this specific type of door is 16 feet wide, 8 feet tall and 9 feet ceiling.

PRICE RANGE:The prices range between $ 375 to $ 825 for 12 by 12 size and $ 420 to $ 1059 for 12 by 16 size. These are rate prices to use as a guide only not the formal price for one’s budget.

INSTALLATION: The installation depends on contractors with a price ranging from $ 150 upwards. The estimates are to be used as a guide only not as a formal budget.

MATERIAL: RV Garage Doors Texas can be found in different types of materials. These are; steel, wood, and stainless steel the most popular being steel RV doors.

STYLES: Different styles depend on the type of material glass. The most popular style being carriage house design made of wood and either swing, slide, or fold open. Other styles being raised panel, recessed panel, and ribbed roll-up doors. Bi-folded garage doors can be folded sideways.

INSULATION: There are two types of insulation for them.These are Polystyrene foam insulation which is a rigid panel. It is usually placed inside the door sections during the manufacturing process. It is less expensive. The other is polyurethane insulation. This is usually foamed inside the door section and will bond to the interior and exterior panels. It adds rigidity to the door. It is also better at reducing noise transmission than polystyrene.

USE AN 8- FOOT AUTOMATIC DOOR: It ensures they have enough space to back out even on an inclined surface. It allows space for ventilation doors to open and better circulation of air around the space. They can either decide on the bi-folding or the normal lifting type.

ADD L.E.D LIGHTING: This type of lighting is better in many ways. One is that it is brighter than the normal types, second being that it lasts longer up to an estimate of ten years.

CREATE A LIVING SPACE ABOVE THE GARAGE: Creating a space above the tall garage, enables a better view. It is an ideal situation. They can make the garage to have custom stairs and elevators leading to living quarters.

CREATING STORAGE AND WORKSPACE: They can create storage places for tools. Building built-in cabinets for easy retrieval of tools. They can also have a table for repairing weary mechanical parts.
