Does your home need a pick-me-up? Replacing your garage door with something more modern and efficient is a great way to improve the look and value of your home quickly and easily. Because your garage door makes up a huge percentage of the front of your house, it can make it look significantly worse if it’s not in great shape. Additionally, replacing your garage door can lead to safety and efficiency benefits as well. Here are five signs it might be time to replace your garage door.
Over time the springs that allow your garage door to rise and fall can become overworked and begin to fail. While routine maintenance can prevent you from needing to change them out too often, there is a point at which they simply can’t take any more. It’s best to replace and repair your door before the springs break. Due to the amount of tension, a tight spring can be under, if it is to break it can result in significant injury or damage to anyone nearby.
If your home has an older garage door, you may find that it’s time for an upgrade to help improve your home’s security system. Modern garage doors often feature high tech locking systems that help keep intruders out and your belongings safe. Just make sure you continue to update the password every so often to ensure that the passcode remains secure; on older key locks you may find that the numbers of the lock code are worn down, alerting potential criminals to the combination.
Improve Energy Efficiency and Increase Living Space
New garage doors offer increased insulation and climate control possibilities making it more possible than ever to get the most use out of your garage space. Having an insulated garage helps keep your interior heating and cooling costs down, and it allows you to use your garage for much of the year more comfortably.
If your old garage door makes a racket, it can quickly become a source of frustration to both you and your neighbors. Additionally, if your garage door isn’t insulated, it will let in and out more noise than normal.
Increased Curb Appeal
The primary benefit of a new garage door is the immediate facelift it gives your home. Adding a new garage door is something that can improve the perceived value and also translate to true added value to your resale.
