Choosing a Good Garage Door

As a rule of the thumb, the type of garage door that you are going to pick is going to depend on the type of house that you live in, the space that there is and the budget which you are working on. Garage doors are of four different types. These types are – the roller door, the sectional door, the up-and-over door and the side-hung door.

Cedar Park Overhead Doors Brings Dogs in from the Cold

Cedar Park Overhead Doors, Austex’s sister company, protected more than 100 dogs from the cold weather last month by installing and selling at cost overhead doors at The Humane Society of Williamson County’s (HSWC) new shelter. The shelter director thanked us and said: “Cedar Park Overhead Doors (CPOD) has given us the ability to bring our dogs into security, warmth and shelter,” says HSWC executive director Ron Marullo. “Without the doors, our dogs would be extremely vulnerable to the cold – especially our smaller dogs and our little puppies.” And with the particularly cold weather at night, it looks like we were just in time.

The “Most Important Door in the House Survey” found that 67% of Americans primarily use the garage door to enter their homes, while only 22% use the front door (11% enter through a side door). In fact, a trusting 12% do not even carry their front door key anymore!
