Do you have a garage door that is simply not up to your standards? If you have a garage door, you know that if it doesn’t get the routine maintenance that it needs, things get rough. Maybe it squeaks and squeals every time it opens and closes, so loud that your neighbors get woken up. Or perhaps it doesn’t close or open all the way. Or maybe, you simply don’t like the way it looks (and it needs more than a new paint job to be better). Whatever the reason, if you have need of a garage door replacement, you’ll be happy to know that the fall is an ideal time to have it done. Read on to learn why!
Update Before Winter
Depending on the age of your door and the amount of damage it has endured, a garage door replacement might be the ideal solution all around. Some garage doors are not suited to the extreme weather conditions we sometimes experience, so updating to one that is better equipped to deal with our cold, cold winters, and hot, humid summers can save you money and time in the long run. Newer garage doors have better mechanisms that will last through the years, working more efficiently and effectively. Updating in the fall will mean that you are ready to handle winter weather (like with a battery back up so you can open the door even in a black-out) before it gets here.
Don’t Wait Till Winter To Install
Some people think they should wait till winter (less competition for business means more availability and perhaps some discounts), but installing in the winter is tricky. The weather during that time of year is inconsistent at best, and when blizzards roll in they stop the work. It would be terrible to take out your old door on Monday and have the forecasted flurries turn into a full blizzard while you have a wide open garage. Those will be some cold days waiting for the snow to clear out so your new garage door can go in.
Take Advantage Of Dwindling Fall Warmth
Speaking of that wide open garage door, when the old door is out and the new door is going in, that is the time when you hope for the warmest part of the day, right? Well the warmest part of a fall day is much more comfortable than the warmest part of a winter day. Additionally, there are a lot of beautiful fall days left for road trips – wouldn’t it be nice to have a functional garage door now so oyu can make the most of them?
