Like many home maintenance chores, people often procrastinate on garage door replacement. Though you may be quick to swap out old doors prior to selling your home, you may otherwise be tempted to let this issue slide. When is a good time to replace your garage doors?
When Your Door Has Dubious Safety Features
Modern garage doors feature many safety enhancements. Since 1993, garage door openers are required to include auto-reversing technology. This technology immediately stops your door from descending and reverses if an object, such as a child or pet, disrupts the sensor.
Many burglars gain access through garage doors. New garage door openers feature ‘rolling codes’ that change after each door deployment to curtail uninvited guests. For these reasons, upgrading your garage door can reduce your insurance premiums.
When You Experience Garage Door ‘Earthquakes’
When your garage door no longer slides gracefully, but strains on the tracks, shaking, rattling and disrupting your household, it’s time to replace your garage door. New doors are lighter and quieter than older chain-driven models, with a smooth belt-driven design. Newer doors also offer insulation, further reducing noise and improving energy efficiency. Don’t wait until your springs break and your old door comes slamming down. Browse our garage door specials or schedule a free estimate before the winter rush.
When Your Garage Doors Resembles Abstract Art
Is your garage door dented, warped, or misaligned? A worn-out door is more than an eyesore, allowing for rain/water seepage that can cause mold, mildew, and structural damage.
When Your Power Bills Make You Wince
With energy costs rising, don’t let your heating and cooling dollars seep out through your old garage door. Outfit your home with a new insulated model, and you’ll quickly pay your door off via reduced utility costs.
When You’re Ready to Ditch the Dark Ages
Home or car equipped with ‘Smart’ features? Outfitting your home with a new garage door will allow you to fully enjoy the benefits of these technologies, including Homelink, Wi-Fi, and smartphone-enabled garage door opener tech.
