Benefits of a New Garage Door
September 26, 2016
Are you on the fence about whether you need a new garage door? Maybe you can’t decide whether you want to spend the money or take the time to fix such a large part of your house. Well just in case you need that last bit of persuasion, we decided to put together a quick list of the benefits you get with a brand new garage door.
A new garage door can greatly add to your home’s value. Any home remodeling magazine or site will tell you that because the garage is such a huge part of your home, improving your garage door can seriously increase your home’s value and is one of the top five home improvement projects that give you the highest return on investment.
Ever heard of curb appeal? Not only can a new garage door get you a great investment but your entire home will look better by getting a brand new garage door. If your garage door is such a large part of the home, why wouldn’t you want it to be as nice as any other part of the house.
When you get a new garage door, you can pick a new material that is more energy efficient and get added insulation to make sure you aren’t wasting energy or money from escaping hot or cool air from your home.
One last reason, if you still need one, is safety. If your garage door is old, it might be time for a new one just for the safety benefit alone. An old garage can have rusty or loose parts and if you have family or small children, this can lead to a falling door or a door that doesn’t lift automatically if its hits something. The garage door is the biggest machine in your home, so give it the best and most modern look and parts so that it works as good as it looks.

Repair or Replace?
As the largest moving part in your home, the safe, secure, and efficient operation of your garage door is essential.
When your garage door opener stops working properly, it can often be repaired without too much problem and repair is typically a less expensive option than replacing your unit. We often recommend repair over replacement for this reason.
There are times when replacement is your best option:
- If your opener is more than 15 years old we recommend replacement to improve the safe operation of your door. Note: Federal Regulations (UL 325) were updated in 1993 making garage door openers safer.
- If we have safety concerns with a specific Brand or the manufacturer has been successfully sued for safety defects, we will not repair that model.
- If there are no photo electric safety eyes present on your system, we will not be able to repair the unit.
- If the brand no longer exists, parts will be unavailable & replacing your opener is usually the only option.
