The latest figures from the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy show that 63 percent of US homes have a garage or a carport. Your garage can be an excellent home feature, but only if your garage door is up to standard.
An outdated, buckled, or broken garage door can seriously damage your home’s curb appeal. Is your home ready for an upgrade? Let’s look at five reasons why now’s the time to get a new, modern garage door.
1. Boost the Value of Your Home
Bankrate recently rated upgrading your garage door as the most cost-effective improvement for boosting your home’s value. Unfortunately, big-ticket projects like new HVAC or a swimming pool rarely recoup the money you paid when you come to sell. On the other hand, a new, modern garage door should boost your curb appeal and the value of your home.
2. Greater Security
Don’t let your garage door be the weak point in your home’s security. Modern garage doors are specially designed to prevent criminals from gaining access. They form a tight fit, keeping the interior well-insulated and thieves safely outside.
3. Easier Maintenance
common for the springs to break or not work properly and to have issues with automatic garage door openers. There comes a point where the hassle and cost of maintenance make it impractical to continue with your current garage door.
Talk to a trusted garage door repair service and ask them for an honest appraisal of the condition of your door. The advantages of replacing it with a new one may outweigh the initial cost.
4. Improved Energy Efficiency
Older garage doors may be poorly insulated. They can be a weak link in your home’s defenses against heating loss in winter and cooling loss in summer. But a well-insulated garage door could help you to reduce your energy bills.
Do you find that your garage is too cold to work in during the winter and incredibly stuffy during the summer? A new garage door can help to regulate the temperature, making it a more comfortable place to be year-round.
5. More Usable Space
A garage can be a fantastic extension to your home, serving as a storage area, workshop, games room, and more! But if your garage is poorly insulated, you may avoid using it for any of these purposes. You may worry that your tools and items in storage will be damaged by wildly fluctuating temperatures.
A new garage door could unlock the potential of your garage and make it more than somewhere to park the car.
