Top reasons why you should install a new garage door03/01/2014 Back To Blog
Your garage door opens and closes, but with a new door can do so much more than that. Here are some of the top reasons to consider why you should install a new door.
Increase the residual value of your home
A new door on your garage can increase the value of your home by as much as 4 per cent. Considering a garage door replacement may not be high on your list of things to do when you want to sell your home, but if your door is scruffy, then it could more than pay for it and secure a sale. If you cannot afford to pay for a new installation, at least consider a garage door panel repair. You should carry out a garage door opener repair or other any work that is required to make sure that the door opens and closes properly.
Reduce your energy costs
An energy efficient home or commercial premise with a combined vehicle storage space can reduce the cost of energy bills with the installation of a new insulated door. You might consider doors from renowned manufacturers such as one made by Stanley or a Chamberlain garage door. You can also choose to install a door made of different materials or one that operates differently. If you have a faulty electric door, then you could replace it with a manual wooden or metal panel door.
If you have an old door on your garage with a broken glass panel or one that does not lock properly, then it increases the likelihood of a burglary. Opportunist thieves have easy access if you leaving the door open because it does not close easily due to a damaged or worn garage door opener or twisted door tracks. The stronger the door, its fittings and lock mechanisms are, the more difficult it will be for someone to break in.
Improved safety features
New safety measures are fitted during an electric garage door installation to prevent the door from closing and crushing anything underneath it. This can prevent serious injury to pets and children in the vicinity. If you have a rusty or damaged door opener or broken cables, then replacing these will ensure that that door operates correctly and smoothly without risking strains or other injuries from a malfunctioning door.
