Replacing your old garage door system can completely change the appearance of your garage and bring undeniable advantages to your home. Here are at least 9 valuable reasons for replacing your old garage door with a new one.
Increase the value of your home
Replacing an old garage door with a new, stylish, maintenance-free door will do wonders for the value of your home..
Improve the appearance of your home
Most garage doors come in not only a wide variety of colors often in a baked-on paint finish, but many different styles and a large selection of windows, all of which can give your home a new look.
Lower your heating and cooling bills with an R‑16 garage door
A properly insulated and airtight garage door can pay for itself over time in reducing your energy costs by keeping the heat out in the summer and the cold out in the winter.
Reduce your maintenance time
Most metals doors are low maintenance when you choose a pre-finished color.
Protect items stored in your garage from the elements
More and more, people are using their garages for storage. To protect these items from damage caused by extreme heat and cold, choose an insulated door with thermal barriers.
Increase the use of your garage
With the use of a high-insulated garage door, you will find the garage a more pleasant place to work in or use as a play area for your children.
Increase the security of items stored in your garage
It is not difficult to kick in or drill through a wooden or metal non-insulated door. Opt for a door which is at least 1 ¾” thick and has a metal skin front and back.
Prevent easy access to your home
Since 1993, new garage door openers have come with rolling code technology which makes it difficult to gain access. This means, each time you use your remote, the code changes. What’s more, as of 2014, you can use a Wi‑Fi app to operate your opener no matter where you are in the world.
Reduce the risk of injury
Photoelectric reversal systems, which have been mandatory since 1993, sense when something is in the way or passing through the opening when the door is coming down.
Buying a new garage door system is a long‑term investment. A new garage door increases the value of your home, allows more uses for the garage, and provides more safety and security.
