A new garage door can improve your property in several different ways. It can make your garage look more attractive, it can increase safety and security, and it can bring more value to your home in terms of lower energy costs and greater equity.
Of course, a new garage door will also mean that you will not have to worry about maintenance and repair costs. If you repeatedly have to make repairs on an old garage door, the costs may actually equal the price of having a new door installed. This is an important thing to consider when you have a garage with an older door.
New garage doors bring important safety benefits
Several features have been added to garage doors in recent times. One of the most important safety features, the photoelectric reversal system, has been standard since 1993. This system has sensors that detect objects or people under the door. It automatically reopens the door if anything is detected.
Also since 1993, automatic door openers come with rolling codes, which make it almost impossible to open the door without a correct opener.
They also bring high tech features
Perhaps the most important tech feature came along in 2014 in the form of a smartphone app that allows the homeowner to control access to the garage from anywhere in the world via their phone.
If your door is more than 25 years old, you should upgrade right away to get the necessary safety and security features. Even people with younger garage doors should still consider getting a new model so that they can take advantage of the high tech benefits.
You can turn your garage into an activity space
Insulated and airtight garage doors with metal skin on front and back can make it easier to control the climate inside the garage and keep the harsh weather out. This will not only help keep the cars and items stored inside the garage safe from the elements, but it may also help you turn your garage into a place that is pleasant to be in. You can take advantage of the warm and safe conditions to turn part of the garage into a play area for children or a work space for your projects.
Keep in mind that insulation will not only help maintain warmth during the winter, it will also keep conditions inside the garage pleasant during the summertime.
A new garage door can save you money
A new garage door can add value to your property. Also, because of the insulation and airtight design, it will cost less to heat and cool the garage.
So when considering the cost of installing a new garage door, you should take into account the equity it will add to your home and the savings it will bring about in terms of lower energy bills and repair costs.
Better security and more peace of mind
Thicker doors with metal skins and high tech security features will bring you peace of mind. Your cars and the other items that you store in your garage will be more secure than ever before.
