If your garage door opens and closes when you want it to, you may not give much thought to its replacement. Replacing an old door can have a lot of benefits you may not be aware of, however, all of which can make a compelling reason to trade in your old garage door with a high-quality new garage door replacement. Take a good look at your garage door. You may want to consider replacement if any of the following apply:
- You’re unhappy with the door’s overall appearance.
- You’re moving in near future and want to increase your home’s appeal.
- Your current door lacks modern feature, it’s poorly insulated, or (most importantly) it doesn’t automatically reverse on contact with an object.
Benefit 1: Boost Curb Appeal
It’s only natural for a garage door to pick up a few dings and dents over the years. It may not look so good if your children, and the neighbors, bounce balls off it every day or we’ve gotten careless when parking the car one too many times. Whether your door is in disrepair or it’s just past its prime, it could be detracting from your home’s appeal, which sets the tone for your entire home. A garage door replacement can change all that!
Benefit 2: Increase the Value of Your Home
Garage door replacement continues to rank highly in terms of recouping costs on investment as evidenced in this year’s annual Remodeling Cost vs. Value report. The report, which considers the importance of first impressions, found that garage door replacements offer one of the greatest paybacks, as homeowners can recoup an average of 88.4% of their door’s cost come resale.
Benefit 3: Reduce Cooling & Heating Costs
Because older garage doors typically aren’t insulated, they owners tend to see higher cooling and heating costs, especially if there’s living quarters directly above or adjacent to the garage. Replacing an non-insulated garage door with an insulated one can help reduce your monthly utility bills. An insulated door, one with a high R-value, will aid in keeping the cold air in during the summer and out during the winter.
Benefit 4: Provide Secure Access to Your Home
The garage door is, perhaps, the easiest access point to your home. It’s quite possible that most homeowners use their garage door as their front door. And, why not? It’s much easier to get in their car and leave rather than go out the front door, open the garage, and then leave. This huge contributing factor is why the average garage door opens and closes 1,500 per year/4 times per day. A new, modern-day door adds an extra layer of home security.
Benefit 5: Increased Safety
Newer garage doors can sense when something or worse…someone, may be in the way of the door closing, and will immediately halt its descent ensuring your loved ones’ safety. They may also offer sophisticated security options, such as keypads that allow you to enter your home through the garage, even without your car. These features, and more, can help ensure you and your loved ones’ safety doesn’t become compromised.
Benefit 6: Reduce Garage Door Maintenance Time
The older a garage door gets, the more difficult its maintenance becomes. From sanding to painting, and so on, they can really take up a lot of your precious time. A new, fiberglass or steel garage door, professionally installed requires a lot less maintenance while looking great at the same time. In addition, the time saved, will allow you to enjoy life the way life was meant to be enjoyed.
