Check out these five reasons for having a new garage door installed at your home.
Major Wear and Tear
If when you look at your garage door and you see deep cracks, chipped paint, rusted hinges, and rotted edges, it might be time to consider getting a new one installed. This type of wear and tear isn’t just unattractive to the eye, it can negatively impact the security and function of your garage door. When you operate the door, warping, cracks, and other conditions like these could cause the door to get stuck and damage the tracks as well.
Can’t Keep up With Repairs
Have you noticed that you’ve been making more and more repairs to your garage door? Is it getting to the point that you can’t even keep up with the amount of attention it needs? It will be more cost effective to replace the door altogether than to continue spending money on repairs. With a new door, you’ll get more years of service from your door.
It’s Getting Old
If your garage door is more than 20 years old, it’s time to get a new one installed. There have been many technological advancements in the past two decades that you could be benefitting from. Furthermore, old garage doors are notorious for leaking air from your home, making it not very energy efficient at all and resulting in higher energy costs to you.
A Tech Upgrade
Speaking of technological advancements, a new garage door gives you access to some new features that will make your home more secure and help create a smoother daily routine. Look for doors that come with apps that you can control from your smartphone. You could even affix a security camera so that you can always keep an eye on the perimeter of your home.
If at some point you’d like to put your home on the market, installing a new garage door will help preserve and even increase the overall value of your home. Buyers are looking for the complete package and providing an upgraded garage door will set you apart from other homes on the market.
